What a waste of time watching
18 October 2004 | by (Bochum) – See all my reviews

My TV-Guide showed a big question-mark next to the film's title. They weren't able to give a comment on this film because the producing TV-channel didn't show it to journalists before its premier screening on TV. Well, they knew why...

Quite ambitious for a German TV-film with quite a budget and quite a known cast and very large marketing campaign. But the film I had to see

  • the try of a mixture of "Jaws" and "Jurassic Park" - was very


disappointing. And the special effects - not really good - weren't the worst of all things about the film!!!

To me it seemed that the director tried to fulfill every audition's needs and so he delivered a patch work of multiple film elements, that didn't want to fit to each other. While as well "Jaws" and "Jurassic Park" were thrilling movies, in this movie every time there comes at least a small moment that might become thrilling, there is a cut and a change to a different scene, that destroys every thrill.

And in a lot of cases, the following scene is an absolute senseless filler to make the movie longer. For example there is a long dancing scene on a party - maybe to give the 14-25 year old TV-customers some Mallorca-impressions - totally senseless. Or like some kind of "product placement" a full lenght performance of the German starlet Jeanette Biedermann singing her new song on the beach....

I'd say: drop about 30 minutes of the film, take 10 minutes of new material and a very good cutter, maybe you can make at least an average film of it. Like it is by now, it's absolute waste of time watching it!
