Storyline

Tikoyo lives by the Bora Bora lagoon in the South Pacific, where he found a man-eating tiger shark when it was an orphaned baby, just a foot long. He named it Manidu, and it grew to be sixteen feet long. Tikoyo believes that his companion houses the soul of a wise old man, and helps him guard the sacred black pearls in the lagoon. In fact, Manidu does protect Tikoyo and his girlfriend Diana, only eating those who are their enemies, or who seek to destroy their environment, or steal the pearls.

Boring and stupid
5 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was terrible. It came on TV a few months ago and my girlfriend and I watched it because we were really, really bored. We kept watching it in hopes that it would become more interesting or more exciting. Never happened. This is precisely the kind of movie that should have been made fun of (and may have for all I know) on that show "Mystery Science Theater 3000" that used to come on the Sci-Fi channel. It was a show where this guy was a prisoner on a spaceship and his punishment was having to watch horrible movies all the time. He and his robot buddies sit down and you get to hear their wisecracking commentary the whole time. This would have been perfect for that.

The acting was awful and uninspired. The story was stupid. The screenplay was dull and boring. That pretty much sums it up.
