The 50 Worst Special Effects In Movie History

3. Shark Dines on Samuel L. Jackson

Movie: Deep Blue Sea (1999)

Sometimes, bad special effects are wonderful, as in Deep Blue Sea's notoriously shitty send-off for Samuel L. Jackson's character. The scene plays out brilliantly: Giving a defiant, call-to-arms monologue while standing dangerously close to water, Jackson achieves a Janet-Leigh-in-Psycho moment of fatal surprise. After all, he's the biggest name in the film's cast, so he can't die yet…right? It's not even an hour into the movie.

But, alas, Jackson's overlong speech gets cuts short when a fake-looking shark grabs what looks like a Samuel L. Jackson action figure in its jaws and pulls him into the water.
