Trivia

When Emma, Seiji, and Lamar are interrogated, Baxter describes Emma as "a woman whose career is all washed-up." That's a pun on Debbie Gibson's music career, which reached its peak with the album Electric Youth in 1989, but floundered through the 1990s. See more »

Goofs

When the shark and octopus attack each other for the first time, the shark bites off one of the the octopus' tentacles to break free from its grasp. In later scenes, the octopus has all tentacles intact. See more »

Trailer is way better than actual film
17 May 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is definitely the film to see drunk with a few mates. Yeah it's pretty lame but what the heck... it's also a lot of fun. Suspend all belief and go with the schlock. The effects are pretty woeful but that's what makes it fun. Unfortunately the editing of all the major action is done so quickly that you don't get a chance to revel in it's outrageousness. Just when the creatures do something really cool like bite the Golden Gate bridge the scene cuts to something else. I want more from my "millions of years trapped in ice giant monsters of the deep." You also get the feeling that all involved know exactly what a pile of B grade celluloid they're turning out. Two thing I've learnt however is next time i fly I'll be looking out for massive leaping sharks and never call an octopus a squid. Surprisingly Debbie Gibson is really good... not as an octopus but as an actor. I'm now a fan. I can't wait for the sequel. It rises...
