*sarcasm* Wow. This looks like a totally original Giant Killer Sea Beast genre film. *sarcasm* Suffice it to say it looks like they decided to throw good movies about big beasts and obessed lunatics wanting to utterly destroy said beast into a blender until homogenized. I think I'd rather watch Moby Dick and Jaws rather than this rehash of better movies. And I can't believe Sci Fi canceled MST3K just to showcase this maudlin tripe.

Great review of a mediocre flick.  I'm just glad the Sgt's back!

God bless UFO Studios for giving us all those wonderful Sci-Fi Channel Original nature run amok films, they never cease to bring me to tears from laughter or intestinal pain,

For those calling this a rehash of 'Jaws'... apart from the shark, and a different species of shark at that, this has.... WHAT to do with 'Jaws', exactly? Does someone mind explaining that?

Yes, this is a terrible film, HOWEVER... although its bad, people still underrate it, and overrate (completely out of proportion) Jaws and its sequels.

I've actually spoken to profession al movie scriptwriters. They agree with me that Jaws had very little plot, and was just plain bad.

Again, this is a terrible movie... but as bad as 'Jaws'? I think not...

I saw this flick on the Sci-Fi Channel. Exausting to watch, but I still found it entertaining. I didn't think of it as much of a B-Movie. I guess it's just cause' I'm a big fan of Shark Movies. Until I read this webpage I never realized the amount of mistakes in this movie!

Well i guess that if they would have add more budjet for the movie and we would have seen a bit more of the shark, which was quit amazing btw and the effects where great.

I am in no way shape or form a fan of Antonio Sabato jr, and laught my ass off when i see him so small after he juiced up in John Woo movie, he looks like an idiot same has Dean Cain another loser.

The effects where amazing but the story dumb and the fact that everyone at the end dies, is dumb.

The sub blows up what kind of plot hole is that, rushed ending.

This movie is horrible. But the scary thing is, the scifi channel made it look GOOD! But than again, they made cube 2
and curse of the kommodo look really good, and they were both crap. Did you know that the only reason this movie is rated R  is for brief mild language? Were's the f**king violence?

By the way, I'm still p**sed off at this site for giving the movie "Super Mario Brothers" 1 slime drop.

Anyone else notice that the director's name of this
"film" is Codd? Coincidence? Well? Well, yes.
Also, in the opening credits, "mom" (I wish my mom was hot like Spencer's) anyhoo...  "mom" had major pit stains... eeew!
This movie is a piece of carp
It's floundering
It doesn't know its place
Okay, I'll clam up now

Won't bother seeing it, but it does kinda look like a marine version of Lake Placid, Anaconda, KingKong, et al.
All I really wanted to say is about the picture of the blonde with the microphone; I think she was a big Roseanne Rosannadanna fan(check the mouth configuration).

Halfbadger did you know that Meg Is going to become a movie in 2006?

I rented and watched this movie today.  It looked very interesting especially after reading Steve Alten's latest Meg book.

Anyways the opening credits was so unbearable to watch.  First the mom trying to like secude the dad, with the kida round.  The kid who looked 12ish, was acting like a 5 year old, sticking out his tongue and do the moose hands thing etc.  I think some of the shots were reshown, like they do in pornos...

Then after dinner the family sits near the edge of this very small boat, on a dark foggy night.  Seems dangerous to me, so easy for someone to fall off the boat.  Then the Meg attacks the boat, sunk it and killed his parents, but left Spencer alive, with a life preserver, riiiiight...

Then we jump what 20 years and Spencer is a proffesor at a college/university, I suppose someone could get there PhD by late 20's, but then be a professor so soon.  The weirder part is, his lecturing/teaching sucks, it was so unbearable to watch him teach, also showing slides with the lights on????

It gets worse from there, His friend invites him to dinner to tell him he gets to go on his Sub (if he designed it, why not design another better one and put in the contract with the company he gets to ride it a bit..), but waits forever, until Spencer has almost left the restaurant.  This was also excruiating to watch.

Then we get to the Sub and are introduced to the crew, where Harrington, is right away confrontational towards Spencer, yet has no problem with new Lab chick, who never really does anything.  Not that any of the crew really do anything other than die.

There is so much illogic and stupidty in the movie, it's amazing.  It's so hard to describe how bad the acting and story is.  The scenes with the Meg are cool though.  The ending appropiately enough was like the entire movie, LAME.

Super-funny line about the atmosphere on the ship, dude-

"Angst walks through the halls like a jilted lover drunk on tequila." I laughed pretty hard when I read that.

Regarding the Moby Dick/Ahab theme- thanks, UFO, for rehashing a 10 to the 17th times already rehashed plot device! Maybe in your next movie, you can have a theme centered around a youthful hero and an older mentor, and have the hero ask, "You knew my father?" at some point. I think that's only been used in like 11 million movies, so it's still fair game.

Dude this movie was so bad and low budget that they didn't even film the 'DIVING" under water... there was a scene where a dude was supposed to be underwater and as a diver you can clearly see that he was not.  I was flicking through and actually on the floor laughing at how BAD the scese was filmed next time they should at least try to foot for a POOL.
