Netflix’s French Shark Attack Movie Bites Bigger Than Hit Man


Move over rom-coms; there’s a new sheriff in town, and it has razor-sharp teeth!

Hit Man Scores Critics But Lacks Audience Bite

While Glen Powell’s “Hit Man” landed a near-perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes, it seems audiences are hungrier for a different kind of thrill. The French film Under Paris, featuring a monstrous killer shark, is currently dominating the Netflix Global charts.

Under Paris: A Low-Budget Surprise

This monster movie, despite its weak critical reception (currently at 53% on Rotten Tomatoes), has captured the imagination of viewers worldwide. Under Paris dethroned “Hit Man,” which currently sits at number eight, showing audiences crave entertainment beyond just critical acclaim.

Not the First Low-Budget Foreign Film to Make a Splash

Under Paris isn’t the first foreign film to make waves on Netflix. The Japanese monster flick Godzilla Minus One previously enjoyed similar success, proving that language isn’t a barrier to a good story (or a terrifying shark!).

So, if you’re looking for a thrilling escape that might not win any awards but will leave you on the edge of your seat, Under Paris might be the perfect film to stream. Just don’t go swimming in the Seine anytime soon!
