What it's about:

Kate Mathieson (Halle Berry) is a shark naturalist who has observed these beautiful lithe, streamlined creatures up close. Sharks who swim undisturbed in their own world: a natural wonder to behold.

She is an expert in the field of sharks and their conservation. She's learnt that sharks prefer to mind their own business and they don't like trespassers ? so she always practices territorial etiquette, respects a shark as a fellow being, and when she's underwater she believes she's sharing their world, not they ours.

Sharks can detect electrical emissions by all living things. This technique which involves touching their snouts, an acute electrical detector, is akin to hypnotising the creatures into a sleep-like state. Kate has a natural affinity with these great misunderstood predators.

By watching their movements and responding in kind with subtle changes in her own body postures, Kate has been able to survive and earn a formidable reputation by convincing the great white that she is neither prey nor predator. She communicates with sharks through body language in a similar way to the principles of horse whispering.

What the critics thought:

"Here's hoping Berry had a great time filming this action thriller near Cape Town. Because this shark story has no bite."
- Paul Chambers, CNNRadio   


"It is often impossible to figure out what's going on."
- Stephen Holden, New York Times


"A disappointing thriller with some key scenes too dark to decipher. Still, Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez make an intriguing couple on screen, and they both look great."
- Betty Jo Tucker, ReelTalk Movie Reviews   


In Shark Alley, courage runs deep.
