Gamespotting: Shark Night

, | Movie reviews

Shark Night, which features a scene in which a one-armed man wades out into waist-deep water and wins a hand-to-hand fight against a shark, introduces its cast with a pair of Tulane students playing Halo 3 in their dorm room. Microsoft’s shooter gets quite a bit of screen time, some map-specific discussion, and a generic Xbox shout-out. The word “pwned” is used unironically. And considering that the cast of this forgettable tripe is so uniformly unlikable — I was even rooting for the dog to die — I’m not the least bit surprised they’re the sort of people who play Halo online.
