Quotes from the news wire:
We actually got a chance to rehearse our scenes together and have some great poignant moments, when you meet Gilbert Shepard you understand what makes Fin tick. It's kind of nice. It's very grounded and it's wonderful character development, because you can't always be slicing through sharks. You've got to ground it in a humanity. This movie does it very nicely with Fin Shepard and his family.
Our writer Thunder Levin is very creative, he's very imaginative and he doesn't try to outdo what he's already done, you can't outdo jumping into a shark and chain-sawing your way out. What he's so clever at is finding other moments that are equally jaw-dropping, so the movie just continues on the peaks and valleys, and it's a great, great ride for everybody.
