Netflix has just released the shark movie Under Paris, so let’s dive into it. Bérénice Bejo (The Artist) steps forward as Sophia, a shark expert trying to track a mako shark—or at least she thinks that’s what it is. After facing a tragedy, she is called upon once more to hunt the killer when it shows up in France’s waterways as a significant event approaches.

The first thing you’ll notice is the dubbing. It’s not great. I wish they would release the original and provide a closed caption because the dubbing is pretty distracting.

The story is exciting and unique, earning it bonus points in my book. It’s not the same shark movie we’ve seen repeatedly. It takes a few twists along the way that will surprise you. I wish the secondary characters were a little more fleshed out, but they are primarily snacks for the predator. There was one death I didn’t expect and I am so thankful the filmmaker had the balls to do it. Sometimes, teens are the worst. The death is a reminder of what happens when youngins don’t listen to adults.

The next thing is the special effects. I admit I was rather impressed. The sharks look great. Fans of blood and gore are going to love it. The body count is enormous, and it’s bloody as hell. It makes you think twice about getting in the water this summer.

The main shark, Lilith, is an imposing creature that could cause significant ecological issues in the future. Don’t be shocked if a sequel comes along; the movie was left wide open and ripe for one. My verdict? Under Paris is precisely what you want from a killer shark movie. Director Xavier Gens clearly understood the assignment. Watch Under Paris now on Netflix.
