“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds."

Swamp Shark (2011)
How bad is it? It's one of the better, therefore less entertaining, shark attack movies. Should you see it? If you're watching shark movies, it makes for a nice change of pace.
Kristy Swanson, of Buffy the Vampire Slayer fame, stars in this shark attack film, that differs from others mostly in the use of a real shark in some scenes (which doesn't help), the location (that's the deepest swamp in the world, given the way the shark leaps and its size) and the odd film role of baseball hall of famer Wade Boggs. There's the requisite stereotyped characters, there are hovercrafts, exploding propane tanks (wow, ripping off "Jaws" directly) and impossible action - when the shark goes on land, you just have to shake your head.
