Shark Attack is a 1999 American action thriller film directed by Bob Misiorowski and starring Cordell McQueen, Casper Van Dien, and Chris Olley in lead roles. The movie follows the story of a marine biologist named Steven McKray (Casper Van Dien) who is investigating the disappearance of his friend in South Africa. He arrives in the country to find that a series of shark attacks have occurred on the beaches, and the authorities are unable to curb them. When he discovers that the attacks are not the work of ordinary sharks, but rather genetically enhanced monstrous ones, he makes it his mission to stop the threat and prevent further loss of life.

The movie begins with a dramatic scene where a group of swimmers are attacked by a shark while on the beach. Finally, a couple is left alive in the water, and they scream for help. The setting shifts to the United States, where Steven McKray is introduced as a marine biologist who has been working on a new project. He receives a call from his close friend, who tells him about the mysterious shark attacks on the South African beaches. The friend also hints in a message left on his phone that the attacks might not be ordinary.

Determined to find out the truth behind the shark attacks, Steven arrives in South Africa and begins his investigation. He meets a local diver, Lawrence (Cordell McQueen), who becomes his guide and friend throughout the movie. They team up to investigate the mystery and find out what is behind the killings. Steven discovers that the sharks involved in the attacks are not ordinary ones but genetically modified to become faster, stronger, and more intelligent than their predecessors. He also discovers that a group of scientists led by Dr. Miles Craven (Chris Olley) has created these new sharks to test them for military purposes.

Steven and Lawrence must fight against time to find a way to stop the sharks from attacking innocent victims. They have to use all their knowledge and experience to stop the sharks before they can harm anyone else. But things take a turn for the worse when Dr. Miles Craven, the scientist behind the creation of the sharks, finds out that Steven is on to him. He orders his men to kill him, and the climax of the movie is a thrilling chase between Steven, Lawrence, and the scientists. In the end, Steven and Lawrence manage to stop Dr. Craven and destroy the sharks and their laboratory.

The movie has all the elements of an excellent action thriller, including a fast-paced plot, suspenseful scenes, and superb acting. Casper Van Dien delivers an excellent performance as the marine biologist determined to uncover the truth behind the shark attacks. Cordell McQueen is also a standout as the local diver who becomes Steven’s ally in his fight against the sharks. Chris Olley delivers a convincing portrayal of the mad scientist behind the creation of the sharks.
