Goofs

At the end of the film, Lucas walks down a gangplank from a "US" Destroyer, to have lunch with the US President. However, US warships are gray in color with their ID numbers painted on the bow. Australian, British, New Zealand and other "British" Commonwealth Warships are an off-green color with the numbers painted amidships. Also, those ships are WW2 style reserve vessels - far from being "current". See more »

One of the worst
16 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If I could have given this a half star I would have. We watch SyFy movies for laughs. We enjoy the bad acting, the awful special effects, the ridiculous-ness of it all. While this definitely had the bad acting (aside from Louis Gossett, Jr. he was fine for the couple of minutes he was in it...but why, Louis, why?) it had none of the fun. There was a lot of conversation, a lot of 'science', but no gratuitous violence that we've come to love from the SyFy movies, none of the laughs, just a bunch of serious talking about the why's of it all. I don't care, I just want to watch someones arm come off or some silly line I can quote afterwards. Skip it. Watch Megasnake or Frankenfish for some good quality cheese. This is boring monotony. The only fun we had was when they mentioned how big something was and we compared whatever it was to the size of Joanne Kelly's distractingly large upper lip. We fast forwarded the last 20 minutes to see the predictable ending and regretted wasting a Friday night on this one.
