As a follow-up to the first film I saw with snakeheads, this one raises the bar, but still not high enough to limbo under. The action is quick, however, and that's good so there's never an extreme lull.
Some of the characters seem to die just for shock value, which works, but beware not to invest value in too many or develop a favorite...it's anyone's food for fish in this TV movie.
I watched this on a Saturday night when I had nothing to do and it was definitely entertaining. If you're looking for Masterpiece Theatre, look somewhere else. If you're looking for a good popcorn movie to watch with friends and enjoy some decent CG, Frankenfish just might be the right movie for you.
Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the...swamp? Enjoy!
