my son was not impressed with it
One of the worst Sci fi films I have seen in a long time. It doesnt reach Pot zombies but comes close. A shark and octopus is unleashed and the humans race to save the world. Dreadful acting, horrible directin that shows more human action then creature. There are scenes repeated over and over with the creatures attacks and chases and the same cheap set is used for a sub and a battleship. Even those looking for the 2 title creatures to show carnage will be disaapointed by the very brief attack scenes and lack of action. Even the shark vs octopus is basicly 2 scenes the same with a slight difference with the worst CGI ever seen. It makes Lake Plaid 3's blurry CGI look like Lord of the rings. And that scene with the shark taking out an Airplane? And they say Horror is far fetched. That scene is def pure cheese there and deserves an Oscar for cheeseyness. Sci fi fans are better off looking at other match up films of this kind as this garbage is bargin basement material. How could they mess up such a great concept???
You know how there are movies that are so bad they're good (think Luke Perry playing a nuclear physicist). Well this movie is just so bad its bad. The acting is APALLING though with Lorenzo Lamas and 80's pop sensation Debbie Gibson as the leads what could you expect! Apart from that there is just frankly not enough mega shark nor giant octopus and when there is its the same 5sec clip over and over and over again. Although they managed to squeeze 10mins of the 'scientists' pouring different coloured liquid together and shaking their heads in defeat (maybe they finally got around to reading the script).
This is truely a stupid dvd. CRAP.
I think the trailer says it all. Samir is right, 2008? Or 1978? If it came on telly when I was laid up in bed with broken limbs and nobody to pass me the remote control, I would probably leave it running in the background while I gazed out the window, imagining what it would be like to be able to fly away. Actually, it looks pretty funny but somehow I don't think it was produced as a comedy.
So B-grade you just HAVE to watch it. Got a good laugh out of it!
2008 ??? You must be kidding me. $2 budget movie, even my dog can make a better one. Don't rent!
Goes past "BAD", past "So bad it's GOOD", past "Why did they do this?" and ends up at "WORST. MOVIE. EVER".
Terrible. Do not watch this movie.
Never judge a book by its cover, and that goes for the good covers too. Paper thin character development, not enough scale to appreciate the monsters, not enough budget to do it right, and too much dialogue saying the wrong kind of things. Still can't outright hate it though.
