Direct to video films have become one of the staples of modern film making. These films offer a multitude of options for film makers such as allowing them to bring to life some films that would never get the big screen treatment, or giving former stars a second chance to become the center piece of a film, or one last chance to be in the spotlight.
Dark Tide is a boorish, life-diminishing catastrophe that uses a former Oscar winner as bait to force movie lovers to endure one of the most boring films that have debuted in a long time. It’s a direct to video film that premiered in 2012. The film stars Halle Berry (Cloud Atlas), Oliver Martinez (Blood and Chocolate), Ralph Brown (The Kid), and Luke Tyler (Dredd).
Dark Tide is an uneventful, flat-line of a film. The lifeless travesty doesn’t even offer a brief flicker of entertainment. It’s a direct to video disaster that debuted in 2012. There are few aspects of this cataclysm that are positive. The best aspect of this sham is that it immediately gives the audience some keen insight on the psychology of sharks who how free divers attempt to discern the psychosis of the world’s oldest killing machine known to man. The Shark is one of the most dangerous predators on earth, and has continues to be featured in films as it roams the sea. This fearsome creature has been the focus of a number of films and this is clearly one of the worse. The second positive aspect of this disaster is the cinematography and location. It features a documentary style delivery in its showcasing of the sharks. Some of the information that movie tells about sharks is extremely informative. That, coupled with the cinematography of the oceans makes the film seem very “Jacque Cousteau like.”
The film offers nearly no reason to watch it until its waning moments and even then its mediocre at best. This calamity’s climax attempts to add some level of tension but no where near enough to justify its nearly two hour running time.
Dark Tide is truly a waste of a film and time. it’s a begrudging disaster that offers nothing for anyone to even begin to want to watch. No conflict, no tension, not nothing. This film doesn’t really have one thing to be positive about. It’s easily the worse film that I have seen this year to this point. The film is slow moving and a complete snooze fest. I don’t know what was worse, watching the film or watching how far Halle Berry has fallen off. She’s completely lost her touch. Outside of being great eye candy, her beauty is really the only reason to endure any minute of the film. Forty minutes into the film before anything remotely exciting occurs. The movie was pointless and simple at best. I don’t think that I enjoyed one minute of this film. Steer far clear of this and don’t ever pay $1 to see it.
