Special effects are OK, but if you don't have some sort of story behind it, you might just as well watch fireworks.
This isn't the strongest story in the world, but it does have a number of good moments that only add to the problems the squid causes. A fat cat rich guy, a boat captain with more ethics than sense, and the desperation of town folk, in an area where the main business of fishing is starting to fail.
Most of the back story could be transposed to any location in the country have have strong grains of truth in it.
While a four hour mini series could have easily been told as well in two hours, it is still a good story. I'll watch it again.
