Stellan Skarsgard’s Favorite Death Is Now From DEEP BLUE SEA
Stellan Skarsgard (Dune, Thor) says his favorite movie death is from director Renny Harlin's killer shark action flick, DEEP BLUE SEA
Renny Harlin’s killer shark action flick, Deep Blue Sea sports a ton of awesome death scenes. And today it looks like Stellan Skarsgard agrees. In fact, the Dune actor says his favortie movie death is from the flick.
Read his comments below.
He tells Daily Beast: “I would say that is probably, in terms of inventiveness, my favorite one too. It was Renny Harlin. Yeah. I like it! Fortunately, I didn’t have to spend that much time on that stretcher—it was a doll. But it looked really cool! And the sharks weren’t CGI back then. It was mechanical sharks, and they were pretty dangerous. The little boy in me was very excited.”
While I think most people remember Sam Jackson’s death scene from Deep Blue Sea, you have to admit Skarsgard’s arm-chop, stretcher throw is pretty badass too.
On an island research facility, Dr. Susan McAlester (Saffron Burrows) is harvesting the brain tissue of DNA-altered sharks as a possible cure for Alzheimer’s disease. When the facility’s backers send an executive (Samuel L. Jackson) to investigate the experiments, a routine procedure goes awry and a shark starts attacking the researchers. Now, with sharks outnumbering their human captors, McAlester and her team must figure out a way to stop them from escaping to the ocean and breeding.
The film sports an 59% approval rating over on Rotten Tomatoes. The Critics Consensus: Deep Blue Sea is no Jaws, but action fans seeking some toothy action can certainly do — and almost certainly have done — far worse for B-movie thrills.
