This film captures the summer at the Jersey Shore in a verbal and visually compelling way.

The characters are grounded and well performed, the cinematography is gorgeous, and the story is compelling and has great dramatic turns.

THAT was creative, different, and exciting!

Anyway great cast that is enjoyable to watch their characters throughout.

super entertaining drama / thriller .

Anyway, Low Tide is a numbing, languid drama/thriller that marks the directing debut of one Kevin McMullin (his only previous credit was a short called First Prize).

It seemed like it dragged as I was waiting for something to happen.

The result is a believable, enjoyable, well-paced, heist thriller.

Even the soundtrack of this movie sounds like the sort of soundtrack all these movies have - all sombre cellos and slow strings.

And the ending clearly shows there was no compromise on the part of the creators of this movie, but not because the plot ending is in itself unexpected: it is the tone which is unexpected (and as such will leave a more lasting impression).

The story and the twists and turns kept me interested throughout and the ending was most unexpected.

Low tide but high boring .

Slow burning movie that it does not goes anywhere.

Boring, bad acting and awful script.

His editor (Ed Yonaitis) shapes the film in slow, tight cuts which favor the actor's rhythms.

Waste of time.

Despite the generally fascinating acting and the beautiful images presented in this film, there are a few shortcomings in this movie.

It is done well and I enjoyed it.

It has a steady but slow pace.

For me, "Tide" at eighty-six drawn-out minutes, is like a mixture of The Outsiders, 2001's Bully, Stand by Me, and Hot Summer Nights.

Low Tide is very well written and intriguing constantly which is nice for an independent film!

Very realistic and exciting.

Engaging and Impressive .
