What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Deep Blue Sea is a 1999 action/horror movie in which sharks who have been genetically modified to have smarter brains to cure Alzheimer's go on a rampage. While the special effects of the sharks attacking and killing is '90s CGI at its worst, the violence is still gruesome and bloody. One character has his arm chewed off by a shark below the shoulder; what remains gushes blood. Characters are chewed in half before they're killed. Sharks are harpooned and electrocuted to death. As bad as the movie is overall, some of these shark attacks are surprising and might be too much for more sensitive viewers. Some profanity, including "f--k" and variations. A parrot is fond of repeating profanity-filled one-liners, and there's smoking and drinking. Characters look through the living quarters of a female colleague who died in search of her vibrator. The movie is somewhere between Jaws and Sharknado -- some of the scares of the former and a lot of the cheese of the latter, sans the self-awareness.
