Andrés García in underpants, that's about it.
25 March 2005 | by (Eastend of London - UK) – See all my reviews

I picked this one up in a weird charity shop as it had weird cover art featuring an exploding aeroplane above an ocean full of sharks fins, people over-board a ship and an odd large alien shaped hand. Anyway as the credits rolled for this Italian/Spanish co production, I noticed the music was by the (usually god-like genius) Stelvio Cipriani and the main star was Andrés García, the handsome muscle guy who starred in Tintorera. The film starts with a voice-over intro about U.F.O's and the Bermuda Triangle... Strange occurrences begin happening in the Bermuda area (will they ever learn?) as boats, ships and helicopters (yeah!) disappear into thin air after a high pitched screeching noise is heard, the sea water bubbles and a weird green light pulsates into red (very basic not so special effects). A rich old guy's much loved daughter and her new husband (wearing possibly the smallest white hot-pants I have ever seen) experience the same fate and the old guy wants to find out what happened to them. So he hires a bloke (money no object) with a theory about the disappearances to go and search the area they went missing. He takes with him Andrés García and an old sailor who likes the whisky, an Alsation dog and some some other bland characters (divers etc.) Anyway, as they search and search you really expect something to happen, but sadly it never really does. They search the area for what takes up nearly the entire film, dodging the occasional stock-footage shark and discovering rocks unlike any other found before. One of the divers who sports a beard gets possessed by something in the water and the dog growls at him. It really is this exciting. Eventually Andrés and the other guy discover an underground (and under sea) grotto with a huge statue like one found on Easter Island.

I won't give away the ending, because I want other people to watch the entire film (like I had to) see what the climax would be. I will say though, that silver body suits and silver crash helmets do not make for good space aliens with intelligent and supreme powers!

The score by Stelvio Cipriani was a lot more orchestral than I was expecting (not like the superb 'Tentacoli') and there's no suspense to speak of, but if you like the look of Andrés García, you wont be disappointed as you do get to see him in very skimpy underpants for almost the entire film.
