Deep Blue Sea

A group of scientists have a deep-sea research facility called Aquatica. In the facility, they have discovered that there is an enzyme in shark brains that can re-activate human brain cells. They have three sharks: two "small" Gen I Mako's and a massive Gen II Mako, about 25 feet long. They have had to increase the shark's brain mass to get the enzyme, but the sharks are smarter as a side-effect.

Suddenly, during a storm, the sharks cause an accident which sparks off a chain of events which starts to sink Aquatica. The small group of humans then need to find a way out before they are killed.

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)

Suggested correction: Her cheeks are like that because when we all take in a big breath of air and hold it so not to breathe, that's what happens. The hand gestures when she goes in the water is so the blood can mix with the water so the shark can smell it.

The hand gesture the entry is referring to is just before she is eaten by the shark, the actress waves her hand across her neck area, allegedly to indicate to the director that she was running out of air.

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 kind but both plates are from Louisiana. The license plate number is the same in both films: 007 o 981 Exp 72-73.

Question: How did they do the scene when one of the sharks ate the bird? I know they used animatronic sharks for any interaction with the people, so did they use the same method for the bird? It was "inside" the shark after all.

Answer: This was a CGI scene.
