Could be the worst movie I've ever seen
23 January 2011 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Being on vacation and this being one of the DVD's in the lodging we decided to watch it. On the front of the box a submarine, some fishing boats and a freighter on fire in the background. Right, another cheesy B-movie. On the back of the box a list of things that are wrong with a fishing village, gossip, stealing, sabotage, etc.. But, when push comes to shove and a military submarine wants to dump radioactive waste in their harbour (What the..?!) they all work together. In the movie itself, it's like they want to show you everything on the list on the back of the box, twice. In bad acting you see all these things happening and they spend about one and a half hour explaining that which you got in one and a half minute. Even at double speed it was boring and took too long. So, here a short summary of the film so you don't have to go see it.

About 89 minutes into a 93 minute movie, out of the blue, a emergency village meeting about a submarine where the main character has his extremely motivational speech "Yes, I blew up that ship and killed someone, but that doesn't matter, we need to work together to stop that submarine!" And we finally get to see a submarine, in a shot that I would guess was stolen out of a documentary about the things and/or a navy promotional video. A shot of a blockade consisting of 3-4 fishing boats. The showdown is nigh. The submarine again, a shot of some random guy in a box with a megaphone: "Move out of the way or we'll go under you!" A shot of the fishing boats again, a shot of a submarine, a shot of the man in the box: "For the well-being of these citizens we'll leave." A shot of the submarine leaving. Victory! Some kid is happily jumping, the end.
