Trivia

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

Dick Ritchie: Before you walk away, do you want some advice?
Emma MacNeil: Nope.
Dick Ritchie: [as Emma walks away] Don't love the ocean too much. It doesn't love you back.

Grade B Sci-Fi still lives and proliferates
29 August 2009 | by See all my reviews

A few of us like a good sci-fi laugh and this one has me laughing hard. This genre was meant to amuse not be taken seriously as possible but to be laughed at and entertained by it. This movie ranks high compared to the grade B that some of us grew up with that was all Black and White. It was not ever meant to be taken seriously. The one real part is how the shark attacks the plane though the height in air was a bit unreal in extreme. The bigger sharks do attack from below and emerge from water. If a viewer wants serious then there are other movies out for that. Most viewers are looking for entertainment and escape. The place that this movie lacks most is balance between the shark and octopus though Geographic showed us that Octpus can kill sharks near same size. if the shark cant move it will die. Viewers that want a good laugh will get a few from viewing this.
