Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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 »

Pretty good thriller/horror combination
28 November 1999 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

I rented this in the local video store since it was based on a Peter Benchley (Jaws) book. I didn't know it was a mini TV series but once it was started, it kept me in front of the TV till the end. Craig T. Nelson delivers an excellent performance and it has got some pretty decent creature effects by Stan Winston. The plot is somewhat like Deep Blue Sea. The Navy performs experiments on Dolphins but something goes wrong and one of the test subject escapes. It reappears 25-30 years later (how old do dolphins get??) and starts spreading terror. Better than your average action movie, I rated it 6/10.
