Reviews:

“Michael Beach is flamboyantly nutty as Durant and his motivating fear of an artificial intelligence-induced singularity is an interesting touch. Danielle Savre also makes Calhoun a pleasingly forceful protag. However, the rest of the ensemble bring little energy to their stock characters. Frankly, many of them look like they are just waiting around to get eaten.” Joe Bendel, J.B. Spins

“Watching this is only slightly more rewarding than subjecting yourself to Roboshark or Zombie Shark or what have you. WB’s impending release of Meg only makes this even more confounding: presumably, that will be the good take on this sort of thing, leaving Deep Blue Sea 2 to feel like an unnecessary relic of what I hope is becoming a bygone era.” Brett Gallman, Oh, the Horror!

“It’s nothing special and has very few original thoughts. There are some truly awful moments in the dialogue but other than that, the writing is just not terribly inspired. For fans of shark movies, it could possibly fill the void until something better comes along, especially if you’re a fan of the SyFy originals.” The Savage Cinephile

Deep Blue Sea 2 has all the excitement of a lazy river float, except even alcohol won’t make this capsized disaster any more tolerable. All man-eater talk and face-nibbler action. Don’t be distracted by sloppy intestinal drips or limbless torsos – this is *not* the B-stunner Deep Blue Sea is. It’s not even in the same Olympic sized swimming pool.” Matt Donato, We Got This Covered
