TUBI EXCLUSIVE: Shark Bait (2022)

Originally known as Jetski, this movie finds Nat (Holly Earl) and her boyfriend Tom (Jack Trueman) on a vacation with their friends Tyler (Malachi Pullar-Latchman), Milly (Catherine Hannay) and Greg (Thomas Flynn). She’s the only one of them that seems to have any sense of morals, so when they decide to steal some jetskis and head out into open water, you’ll cheer on the shark that finds them.

They’re dumb before the shark even gets there, racing the jetskis at one another and causing an accident with numerous injuries, stranding them with no coast in sight. And then, there’s that dorsal fin, and the shark saves us all.

Director James Nunn worked was the second unit director on 47 Meters Down and 47 Meters Down: Uncaged, so he knows how to shoot a shark attack scene, even one that’s done with CGI. Writer Nick Saltrese has experience with soap operas, so that gives some dramatic gravitas to the film, as Tom hasn’t exactly been loyal to Nat.

It’s well shot, the gore isn’t bad and the movie flies by. What more can you ask from a free shark movie in 2022?
