This movie was filmed partly on the island of St. Lucia in the Caribbean. Unfortunately, the directors didn't pay enough attention to some of the local speaking "extras" who, in the scene with the young boy in the town of Soufriere, one of the locals curses a certain part of his mother's reproductive anatomy in the local Creole dialect - Patois. Oops!!! See more »
Tthe Beretta M9 wasn't developed until 1976 and didn't enter service in the US military until the 90s, where as the beginning of the movie takes place in 1972. Also, the M16 that Peniston had just before letting the Creature's cage go was the A2 model, which wasn't developed until 1981 and didn't enter service until 1983. See more »
Good cast, interesting looking creature.....dismal ending
From the author of Jaws comes this so, so tale of a military experiment that splices the DNA of a human and a Great White shark.
Yes, predictably the resulting uncontrollable beastie eventually gets loose and subsequently goes about terrorising a small beach side community.
Craig T. Nelson and the ever sexy Kim Cattrall headline and equate themselves well in their respective roles whilst the rather splendid shark creature is supplied by the fx genius of Stan Winston (who was also responsible for the wonderful looking Pumpkinhead).
A fairly run of the mill affair overall, this does nonetheless contain a fair number of exciting scenes to lift it above the average mark although the ending it has to be said is sadly a particular let down!
Final verdict? Fellow fans of aquatic beastie films could certainly do a lot worse than to give this a go.
