1st Impression:
  You're probably looking at this trailer and wondering how a film that screams SyFy channel is heading to the big screen but it pains me to say that it honestly doesn't look that bad especially considering what's made it to the big screen in last few years. The schlocky music did not help it and neither does the PG-13 rating in my opinion. Horror movies should be rated R especially when it involves a giant shark eating people.

This film has been in development hell for some time with numerous studios and directors tied to it including Guillermo del Toro and Eli Roth. I am honestly more impressed that it actually got made and that the cast is pretty decent. Will the Transporter be able to defeat the giant prehistoric shark and save the day? We'll find out this summer.
