Storyline

The capture of a legendary, ancient monster in a Latin American lake obsesses a dilettante U.S. adventurer and the country's ego-maniacal military dictator. The adventurer wants glory & fame, the general craves the tourist influx. The amazing powers of the creature, the reverence of locals for it, and the ideals of both countries' scientists stand in the way of the power-crazed adversaries' schemes. Written by David Stevens

Something's Fishy
8 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This has multiple stories going, none of which is very interesting. You have the insensitive megalomaniac who abuses his female partner. You have the cowardly scientist who takes off, leaving his boss to the dangerous fish. You have the fish themselves which are about as stupid looking as any of the monsters (men in sweatsuits with fish heads). You have the banana republic leader who thinks he is helping people but is only serving himself. Anyway, the bossy guy is clueless. One of the most ridiculous scenes has to do with allowing an undependable alcoholic guard to watch over the captured fish-man (when it has been announced that this may be the discovery of the century). His buddy comes over with wine and a checkerboard and turns up the heat in the refrigeration unit and allows the guy to thaw. They get drunk and the prized possession gets out. Pretty dumb.
