Super Boring
8 May 2017 | by O2DSee all my reviews

An American company has built a factory in Colombia and the pollution from the factory has possibly created a monster in the local lake.A TV station from New York has sent an investigative reporter to the scene and she is the lamest antagonist ever.You can tell she's a very serious journalist because she never wears a bra and leaves her shirt half buttoned.A guy gets a phone call asking for sonar equipment.He says he doesn't know what it is, then immediately says they have some at another site.Weak.So there's tons of tight shots, bad acting and even more music and dancing.Most of the Colombians are white with American accents, of course.Weirdly, Colombia seems to be full of extremely hot blonde women.I would have never guessed.Anyway, the monster looks really cool but he's extremely hard to see and is only on screen for thirty seconds.While this is a truly terrible movie, I gave it two stars because I have seen worse.Never see this.
