Product Description

On the beautiful but dangerous waters of Australia's Great Barrier Reef, ship delivery man Luke and four friends chart a yacht to its new owner. Along the way, their ship is torn open by sharp rocks and begins to sink, leaving the passengers with a terrifying choice: stay on board with slim hope of rescue, or swim twelve miles to the nearest island... through shark-infested waters. When they enter the water, an unstoppable, relentless Great White immediately follows their trail for a white-knuckle chase that will fill the waters with blood! From the director of the acclaimed monster hit, Black Water, comes a pulse-pounding, visually stunning thriller that never lets go until the final, heart-stopping scream!

Five friends are stranded when their boat is torn open on the Great Barrier Reef, leaving them to face an unthinkable decision: wait on the capsized boat for help that may never come or swim for a distant island through shark infested waters. The Reef is a low budget effort from Australia that blows any recent shark movie competition right out of the water. It is based on the true life story of Ray Boundy, the sole survivor of the real tragedy. The amount of tension build-up in this is excruciating. It taps into very primal fears of the unknown, unseen lurking in the deep blue sea, as well as being put back on the food chain and literally eaten alive. The acting is all solid. This was also filmed with a real Great White shark, no CGI, giving it a more authentic feel. A relentless and extremely effective thriller that I highly recommend.

Personally, I never plan to be in a situation where I have to choose between swimming through shark-infested waters to possible safety and staying atop a capsized sinking boat with very little chance of being rescued. Unfortunately, that's exactly the situation the characters of The Reef find themselves in when their boat strikes a reef and capsizes in the waters of Australia's Great Barrier Reef. Those beautiful blue Pacific waters aren't so inviting when you're suddenly forced to ponder the dangers that lie beneath. It's true that The Reef follows the standard formula in a genre that is already bursting with shark attack movies in recent years, but this one is well worth watching because it is based on a true story (albeit loosely, with a number of significant changes) and, more importantly, it hits all the right buttons of fear, suspense, and realism.

The trip was supposed to be a holiday for Luke (Damian Walshe-Howling), his friend Matt (Gyton Grantley), Matt's girlfriend Suzie (Adrienne Pickering), and Matt's sister (and Luke's former girlfriend) Kate (Zoe Naylor) - and so it was until their yacht hit a reef and capsized. With the keel pretty much laid open, Luke lays out the group's options. Option 1 is to stay on the slowly sinking boat and hope they are rescued before it goes down - but there is very little traffic in that area, the boat's old distress beacon can only be picked up by a plane flying overhead, and the current is pushing them out toward the ocean. Option 2 is to swim for it to Turtle Island twelve miles away. Luke's sole crewman is adamant about staying with the boat because he knows they are in shark-infested waters, but Luke thinks their only realistic chance is to swim for it. Personally, I would be staying there with Warren - no doubt about it.

I hated the film Open Water, so when I saw the cover of this film I automatically thought of that movie. But luckily I discovered that Andrew Traucki the director of this film also directed Black Water, one of the greatest crocodile films ever(also awesome, suspenceful & realistic).
So I gave The Reef a chance. Boy was I glad that I did. If you enjoy man against nature, or suspence films, or would love to see a worthy shark film. THE REEF is for you.
A group of friends lost at sea must stay on top a capsized boat or make a swim for it.
Those who choose to swim soon realize they are not alone has a predator lurks and stalks. A must see suspence thriller.

This movie had everything that I could ask for in a shark title. It was a true story (apparantly)which made me VERY scepticle about it because usually they suck which gave it credibility. It had the fear aspect, shark footage that looked legit and the attacks were very well done. Definitly check this out.

A very unexpected satisfying movie. I don't think is well known movie, but it's not bad I had wanted to see it for a long time.
It is more about survival at sea, than a shark movie.
If you like suspense then this is a movie to see.
