New this month Plot hole: Carter doesn't have any tracker device or any other to find the lost shark in the open sea, so it would be impossible to find him.

Revealing mistake: When the sharks first attack and bite off the man's arm - you can clearly see his arm under his shirt as he's scrambling away from the water.

00:34:10

Revealing mistake: As soon as the three survivors are coming out of the lab through the hatch underwater, they all signal each other to rise to the top. Look at Safron Burrows, her cheeks are full of air and you can almost see the surface above her head. You can also see the exact same shot when she is about to be eaten by the last shark. And what's with that hand gesture - to cut or for the shark to stop?

01:26:30 - 01:33:10

Revealing mistake: At the end of the film, when Preacher is fighting the shark, we can see that it is a white stuntman doing the scene for LL Cool J.

01:28:00

Factual error: Near the beginning when the boat pulls up and the guy on the boat tells the blond convict he's got a beauty 13 foot "Tiger shark" that's up in some sort of sling, the so called tiger shark is actually the same robot mako shark from the rest of the movie, just with stripes on it. Tiger sharks have a blunt rounded nose, not a pointed one like a great white.

00:07:35

Revealing mistake: In the scene where L.L. Cool J. is in the flooded kitchen and the shark comes in through the door, he climbs up a shelf, then falls in the water, then climbs out again. Before he makes his way to the oven you can clearly see that under his pants he is wearing knee pads.

00:53:35

Revealing mistake: In the shot when the helicopter is about to crash into the building, take a look at the blade. There is a wire holding the helicopter.

Factual error: A double oven has a double or triple insulating wall between ovens, not a single sheet of flimsy steel.

00:56:00

Continuity mistake: When the shark is brought up to put the needle in his head he bites off the guys arm leaving only a bit left there, yet when they are wheeling him to the helicopter you see that he's got more arm than before.

00:33:50 - 00:35:25

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the movie, the Preacher stabs the shark in his left eye with his cross, causing it to bleed. Later, in the next scene when shark returns to eat Susan, its eye is intact.

01:28:10 - 01:32:45

Factual error: There's no way those dynamite sticks could have produced anything like the humungous explosion at the end of the film. In fact, the most they would have done would have been putting a hole in the shark's skin. (Proven on Mythbusters.)

Gavin Jackson

Continuity mistake: Near the end scene, when the three characters came to the surface, L.L. Cool J. was taken by the shark. When he was taken underwater and when he surfaced, the shark had him in her mouth on the right side. When they went under again and resurfaced, L.L.Cool J. was on the left of the shark's mouth. What? Did the shark not like him on the right side so she switched him underwater?

01:27:30

Revealing mistake: When Samuel L. Jackson is attacked and killed by the shark, you can clearly tell that he is CGI. His arms and legs are segments and it looks really corny.

01:00:05

Continuity mistake: When LL Cool J is standing on the shelf and reaching for his bird on the pot, it is clear that he could easily reach the pot if he clenched his fingers. Yet, in the next clip, the pot is shown from a different angle and is at least 1 or 2 feet away.

00:53:55

Factual error: Since the water was always waist high, how could the huge sharks swim inside? Not to mention the corridors...

00:51:10

Continuity mistake: The man with the cross has a wound on the left hand side of his head. Later in the movie it has moved down.

Add time

Plot hole: Considering the size and power of the sharks, why didn't the female just jump the fence at the end of the film. It was only 3 or 4 feet above the water at that point.

01:30:10

Grumpy Scot

Continuity mistake: When Carter is sitting in front of one of the small hatch-like doors around the time that they were climbing the ladder to escape from the rising water, one can clearly sea that the door is no more than twice the width of Carter (4 feet at most) yet the 45 foot shark about 10 to 12 feet wide seems to have no trouble squeezing through.

01:01:40 - 01:04:20

Revealing mistake: In the wet lab, just after the helicopter explodes into the tower, pieces of concrete are falling all around Thomas Jane, as he reaches to pull the blonde out of the water. The pieces of 'concrete' bounce all around like the foam pieces they are, not actual concrete.

Quotes

Russell Franklin: Just what the hell did you do to those sharks?
Dr. Susan McCallister: Their brains weren't large enough to harvest sufficient amounts of the protein complex. So we violated the Harvard Compact. Jim and I used gene therapies to increase their brain mass, a larger brain means more protein. As a side effect the sharks got smarter.
Janice Higgins: You stupid bitch!

Trivia

In both Jaws and Deep Blue Sea there is a scene involving a license plate. In Jaws it is removed from the belly of the dead tiger shark. In Deep Blue Sea it is removed from the teeth of a tiger shark. Not only are both sharks the same but both plates are from Louisiana. The license plate number is the same in both films: 007 o 981 Exp 72-73.
