Trivia

Originally the eels in the film were going to be created by the American CGI team, and looked similar to a giant moray eel with a more sinister grin. But to save money, the American eel was scrapped, and the work was handed to the Bulgarian CGI team. See more »

Goofs

After the minisub (being piloted by Protas) is attacked by the eels, we see several shots of a computer screen reporting the damage done to the sub. Among the messages shown is the text "Loosing pressure". The correct spelling is "Losing". See more »

Huh?
21 August 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Last week I had some minor surgery and had to watch TV. As the previous reviewer stated the Sci-Fi channel loves putting thier 'original' movies onSunday night at 9:00. Maybe because they think no one is watching.

Lately Sci-Fi is not content to just run movies and TV shows, they want to be movie makers. Having seen most of them, I conclude they need to stop it. This movie (and it really isn't a movie, more like an episode of a Twilight Zone-like anthology series) was just bad karma from the first word.

Paint by numbers.

The script was difficult to follow. Seriously I didn't really understand what was going on for most of it. The only clues I had were the rip-off characters from the Abyss, and of course the 'arch evil' corporate, government, mad scientist (insert here) bad guy. Boy, ever since Alien 2 we've always had the Paul Reiser character in every sci-fi tale.

Anyway, the movie was as bad as it's CGI creatures, and had nothing to offer a sci-fi fan.
