Deep Blue Sea - They Should All Be Dead!
The shark in the circuit room grabs Scoggins (Michael Rapaport's character) and slams him into a circuit panel. Sparks shoot out. Ummm, the panel, the shark, and Carter Blake nearby are all underwater: they'd all electrocute. But they don't.
This makes even less sense because a few minutes later the head scientist, Susan, electrocutes a shark and takes precautions to avoid the very same thing by using her wet suit (although this is also an error, because the wet suit is soaking wet and on top of a wet shelf). If she'd seen the scene earlier in the movie she would have known she didn't have to bother.

DoobieGirl2, It depends on how close the currents are. If you throw a plugged-in hair dryer into the bath you're in, chances are you'll be sizzled. If you throw a massive electrical cable into a room full of water, same deal. If you threw a hair dryer 2kms away from you in the ocean, you wouldn't die. It depends on the distance as to how strong the currents are. I agree with the slip up. :)

Yeah I agree with Steve. I mean come on, you can go swim in the ocean with lightning hitting the water less then a mile away and you wouldn't get electocuted. Now I'm sure that lightning has A LOT more energy then that generator, and if that wouldn't get you from less then a mile away then I doubt a generator would fry the whole ocean. But I do agree that Carter should of been shocked.

The shark is touching Scoggins, and Carter is nearby. That's close enough for them to get electrocuted, but no, up to a point everything in the ocean wouldn't get electrocuted.

I don't agree. By your theory everything in the ocean would have died. I know that people have put something electric in the ocean and every thing didn't die. We would have no fish,whales,sharks,or rays. But we do. Explain that to me. I am not saying that you are wrong but I am just wondering.
