Marine biologist Jack Ellway and his son Brandon are drawn to the Polynesian island of Malau to study the effects of recent seismic activity on the area's marine life. Along with the local doctor Alyson Hart, they soon become caught up in the investigation of a series of recent drownings with unexpected results. As Jack explores the surrounding ocean for a mysterious marine creature, Brandon discovers and befriends a three-foot-long baby creature that is able to leave the ocean and walk on land. As more dangerous and giant creatures come onto the island, and the military begins to take offensive action, Jack must risk everything to save the creatures, the island and his son. Written by

"He like cheese balls" - best line in the movie!! Other than that this was garbage, about as yummy as the DDT that supposedly transformed cute little salamanders into these beasts who kill if you get in their way. I can understand joking how this is a great movie but giving it a "10"? That's really not funny. Nothing in this movie deserves a "10" except maybe the sand on the beach. Chock full of mostly bad acting, mostly bad effects. Boy Scouts from Nebraska could probably stage a more realistic take over and evacuation of a tropical island. I will say I did like the little guy; I thought the baby monster was kinda cute. Adam Baldwin did okay. The helicopters were nice. The sun was shining. It was kind of an interesting story but just flopped. How could it not? A tv movie like this, what kind of budget were they looking at, like 5 or 600 bucks, maybe a thousand? It goes to show ya that almost everything made-for-tv, especially in the action category, is worth less than the time you spend to watch it.
