Deep Blue Sea vs Jaws proves that practical effects are more convincing than digital. everything is digital these days and there needs to be some restraint.

DBS is way too complicated to start with. Too unlikely. Jaws is unrealistic (Peter Benchly is a retard), but it is cocievable that a shark might decide to make humans it's main prey.

However, what company on earth would invest the millions of dollars necesarry to make an underwater test facility to use genetically engineered mako sharks to study alzheimers? i imagine using mice in a lab would be more cost effective. They would use apes long before sharks.
