Since The Shallows is a shark movie, director Jaume Collet-Serra researched the crap out of sharks in preparation—the result of which is a film that explores aspects of the creatures we’ve rarely seen before. The weird thing is that the director himself doesn’t see The Shallows as a shark movie.
Summer is coming, which means one thing: it’s almost shark-movie season! In The Shallows, a great white that has no business being so close to shore menaces an extremely unlucky surfer (Blake Lively) who’s been stranded on a rock tantalizingly close to the (deserted) beach.
In The Age of Adaline, Blake Lively plays a woman who gets struck by fancy weird-science-lightning and stops aging, for decades. But she keeps her condition secret, which means she needs to be alone. This could have been the premise of a neat movie, but instead it’s the basis of a grinding mess.
Honestly, they should just re-title this movie "Who Wants To See Blake Lively In Different Period Outfits?" Or "Blake Lively, You're Too Pretty To Be That Old!" Behold the trailer for The Age of Adaline.
