When Jesse, played by Nicky Whelan, and her friends take a vacation that was supposed to be idyllic finds out that the island that they are visiting also is home to a vicios great white shark.

If you like animal monster movies, like Jaws or Deep Blue Sea, then this movie does a good job setting up the shark to be the villian. However you will have to suspend the disbelief that they would just not go into the water.

Mr. Smith, played by Sylvester Stallone, just wants to live a quiet life of retirement.

Imagine the story of Hancock, without the hero being an asshole. The story of Samaritan is just about a man who wants to no longer be a hero, but the world needs him and as a result he has to see if he still has it within himself to be the hero once again.
