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 Deborah Gibson's music career, which reached its peak with the album Electric Youth in 1989, but floundered through the 1990s. See more »

Goofs

The Japanese submarine appears to be manned by Japanese natives, but they only speak English. None of them even have an accent. See more »

Quotes

Allan Baxter: [to Emma] And you little lady, you've got a lot of mouth from someone who's career is all washed up. Sleeping on your old Prof's couch. What's next, a little extra credit?
Lamar Sanders: Hey!
Allan Baxter: Cool it hombre.

A Scintillating Cinematic Masterpiece
21 August 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Debbie Gibsons finest hour comes with a gritty, mesmerising performance in what has to be described as the film of the decade.

The plot, written by premier director Jack Perez, focuses on the age old undersea battle between the two aquatic giants of the sea, which, as we all know, is that of the Shark and the Octopus.

It was only after watching the film 8 times I was informed that the crisp special effects had been done using CGI......incredible! The shark is so lifelike i literally voided my bowels every time this nauseating monster came into shot Perhaps the biggest highlight, of this orgasmic blockbuster, is the romantic sub plot involving Gibson and Vic Chao. Thrown together in a time of world catastrophe the two scientists battle masterfully subtle feelings of sexual tension........now I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but lets just say there is a groundbreaking, red hot conclusion that will leave you shocked and stunned ;) The sequel, Massive Panda vs Quite Tall Aardvark, is due to hit our screens early in 2010, and, if this film is anything to go by, you will need to make advanced bookings at your local cinemas. During a private screening of the first rough cut, 31 people suffered crush injuries while fleeing in terror.
