Russell Mulcahy takes the Bait

Russell Mulcahy has recently made the nice looking Give 'em Hell Malone starring Thomas Jane. He also made Highlander and The Shadow amongst many other things.

Now, for his next film, Bait, he appears to have taken whole heap of high concepts and thrown into something that can only be described as a great big mess. Oh it will also be in 3-D.

In a sleepy coastal resort community, shoppers at an underground supermarket find themselves terrorized by a crazed bandit when the unimaginable occurs… A monstrous freak tsunami swallows the town. Now trapped inside a flooded supermarket with an armed maniac and rushing water threatening to entomb them all in a watery grave, the imprisoned band of survivors discover they’re not alone. The tsunami has brought some unwanted visitors from the depths. As the waters rise they must overcome not only the threat of drowning, but another threat, just as deadly and far more bloodthirsty… Packs of hungry tiger sharks.

You probably feel much the same way I do after that.

This year's Snakes On A Plane? (And yes, I mean that positive!)
Anyway, I hope that this is one of the good Mulcahy movies. For every 'Razorback', 'Highlander', 'Ricochet' or 'Silent Trigger' he made two bad movies (which are so bad that I don't even bother with remembering their names.)

The tiger sharks end up being alien invaders who have planned the attack to uncover an ancient portal which will open a doorway to another dimension, unleashing all kinds of death and destruction. Along the way one of the 'sharks' comes of age, falls in love, realises his past mistakes and sorts his life out in a truely classic feel-good styley. This film has it all! Erm, maybe...!
