Totally wacky pro-wrestling/sci-fi spoof. Giant squid crashes championship match & steals title belt.
Just too goofy, it's simply silly enough to keep you giggling till the end.
The low-tech costumes are perfect for the tone of the movie. Excellent performances by the human cast, well sorta. The fight scenes are hilarious, the squid is joined by an octopus & a Squilla(some kinda giant shrimp)... again the goofy costumes work great here, as wel as in in the scenes of sunsets and romance ;-) Then when it wasn't getting weird enough, there's an appearance by a boy-band.
