Plot hole: Mako sharks have been known to leap out of the water, sometimes into boats. Therefore, it is quite possible, perhaps even more so, for these specialised Makos to jump.
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)
Tom Scoggins: They're big, real big.
Carter Blake: What's that?
Tom Scoggins: The size of your brass balls!
Trivia: Director Renny Harlin has a cameo as one of the employees of Aquatica who are leaving the facility for their weekend break in the opening scene.
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.
