Storyline

The course of true love never did run smooth. Two octopi entwine in an embrace when a hand reaches from above, plucks them out of the water, disentangles them, tosses the male back in what now we see is a small aquarium, puts the female in a cold storage box, and heads for a delivery truck. He recovers from the initial shock and gives pursuit, grabbing the back of the truck as it leaves, then working himself to the front. As the driver tries to thwart his efforts to save his woman, the truck careens through the small coastal town. Will he succeed? Do other perils await? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Oktapodi – Finding Nemo + Ratatouille
10 February 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

One commendable job done by the creators of Octapodi was to create two cute octopuses, which are otherwise one of the most hideous looking things on the planet. I've yet to see a movie with a 'cute' spider though. Anyway, Octapodi probably spent most of its budget designing the octopuses' movements, as the locations in the film look bare and lifeless. It's as is The White Witch from Chronicles of Narnia had turned those buildings into ice.

Also, the actions were at breakneck speed, so one really gets no time to let all the action sink in. The plot is similar to the films mentioned above, but the villain here seemed absurd. At least Skinner had a valid reason to chase Remy. It really can be a gift or a curse to get an Academy Award nomination since it elevates expectations of the audience towards the film. Oktapodi is sweet but is still too green to get such a distinction.

My Rating: 4 out of 10
