During one part of the movie, they have a camera shot across the deck of the cruise ship. In that shot the signature "Whale Tail" of the Carnival Cruise Line is shown. All other pictures of the ship are without that smokestack and do not resemble a Carnival cruise ship. See more »
Uneven, jumbled, with an occasional visit by the title creature
Starts off with a Soviet sub being lost in 1962 while on its way to Cuba. Cut to four decades later.
There's confusing hi-jinks, political intrigue, and traitors aboard an American sub that find the old sub. There's also a giant Octopus wandering around that makes periodic (and oddly timely) attacks, whenever it serves to thicken the plot. A spy is aboard the sub, and endeavors to uhhh, umm, do something bad I guess. The script doesn't make it clear, and the novice acting by the cast doesn't help, either.
Then the sub meets up with a cruise ship (!) What? Oh, and more spies show up too. The script darts around so much you'll get dizzy trying to follow it.
The final scene is about the only part that has anything of interest happen, as the Octopus makes his finest appearance. He's pretty nasty looking, as the director loves to take CGI shots into his mouth, as he attacks. Most of what you see is sloppy CGI, but at least you get to see something happen after waiting through the entire movie.
A goofy, bargain basement movie, good for sporadic moments of chaos and comedy.
