There are reasons you've not heard of this before!

I had not heard of this movie before I stumbled across a DVD containing it a few days ago, and it's more likely than not you've not heard of it before. It's an effort from schlock producer Harry Alan Towers, who also wrote the screenplay. He wrote it under a pseudonym, and it's easy to see why. The movie is very unfocused and meandering at times, playing like it was edited from several episodes of a (bad) television series. The direction is a mess as well. For one thing, the movie never makes clear where the events of the movie are taking place (Australia? South Africa?) The biggest problem, however, is that despite the short running time, the movie is almost a complete bore. There are a few impressive tricks the seal pulls off, but those scenes only add up to a few seconds of screen time. If your kids want to see a movie about a seal, find a copy of "The Golden Seal" instead. It is far from perfect, but it's way better than "Sandy The Seal".
