Oil...the quest for it is unrelenting. The search for new reserves of the 'black gold' never-ends and leading the search is Nexecon Petroleum and its flagship-the largest drilling and refining platform ever constructed-'Colossus" located in the freezing North Atlantic waters off the coast of Greenland. 'Colossus' will drill deeper than any rig ever has, a fact that gratifies Nexecon CEO, Peter Brazier, but that has geologists the world over up in arms, concerned that delicate ocean floor fault lines could be disturbed with catastrophic effects. Skeptical news reporter Christen Giddings and her cameraman Jake Thompson are invited by Braziera to document the safety of 'Colossus.' The powerful drill tears through the seabed, striking a rich oil deposit. As the drill penetrates further, it ruptures a fissure that reveals a second 'mirror' ocean that has existed beneath ours for millions of years. An ocean teeming with prehistoric life. As the choking oil posions the water, the frenzied ... Written by
Ross recounts the rediscovery mistakenly classified extinct coelacanth fish, "...until one turned up a few years ago off the coast of Madagascar." The living coelacanth was found off the coast of South Africa in 1938. This is over 1,000 miles away from this island of Madagascar and 1938 is hardly a "few years ago." See more »
I really hate ripping up low budget movies because that is the business I am in and I would hate for someone to do it to me. I'll say something positive first and then move on. THIS IS THE BEST SHOT ON VIDEO SHARK MOVE I HAVE EVER SCENE!!! With that being said lets go to the breakdown: This entire movie was shot in a studio on high quality video. The sets are so and so and the acting is also so and so. There is no nudity even though we were all expecting to see some from one of the two lead female actors. Even though this movie takes place on the largest oil platform in the world there is a surprising lack of background actors. This is summed up at a dinner table scene where the multi billionaire owner of the oilrig tells the reporters visiting that they are so automated that they only need 24 people to run the entire platform. Even with that I don't think we see 24 people the entire movie. Couldn't they have done the old Beastmaster trick of having extras walk back and forth in front of the camera during some scenes? It's a move folks. Lets at least try to fake it. The movie is complimented heavily with CGI some of which is good (But that's the exception) but the sheer amount of it starts to take its toll. The oilrig is CGI; the helicopter at the beginning is CGI; All the underwater scenes are CGI; The shark is CGI; The snow outside on the ice flow is CGI; Many of the interior sets are either CGI or enhanced with CGI; The yacht at the end of the move is CGI; with all this couldn't we at least add some CGI actors??? With everything going against it there were some times when I was a little interested in the movie and wondered where it would go, but in the end I found myself just trying to guess which actors would die and how. I'll give it one star because it at least kept my attention long enough to finish the thing. I'm mainly disappointed because there was obviously some money involved in this move and even with all that, and some great computer talent, they couldn't save it in the end. Its called writing folks. Take a class. MKB
