Goofs

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 »

an absolute disaster
21 March 2003 | by (bournemouth,england) – See all my reviews

I'm sorry everyone but when i saw the trailer,i thought the potential was there - even the effects looked good, but to my amusement the movie was another straight to video disaster.The story was bearable,the cast were there for the free parking and the script i think was written by the tea boy on his tea break.On swiftly to the effects which would have given a teenage harryhausen nightmares,judging by the companys cv they have found there market in unintended hilarious monster flicks - but speaking as one chump who bought the dvd before viewing,BEWARE
