Shark! ★½ ManEater; Un Arma de Dos Filos 1968 (PG)

American gun smuggler Reynolds, stranded in a tiny seaport in Africa, joins the crew of a marine biologist's boat. He soon discovers the boat's owner and his wife are trying to retrieve gold bullion that lies deep in sharkinfested waters. Typical Reynoldsian actioninfested dumbness. Like “Twilight Zone: The Movie,” earned notoriety because of onlocation tragedy: a stunt diver really was killed by a shark. Edited without the consent of Fuller, who disowned it. 92m/C VHS, DVD . Burt Reynolds, Barry Sullivan, Arthur Kennedy; D: Samuel Fuller; W: Samuel Fuller.
