Quotes

Seiji Shimada: How are you holding up under pressure?
Emma MacNeil: It's not easy being brilliant under armed guard
Seiji Shimada: From what I know you're no stranger to pressure. Joyriding in an experimental sub in an ice floe seems kind of tense.
Emma MacNeil: Yeah well, I was always drawn to the water. Always felt like a part of it.
Seiji Shimada: Me too.
Emma MacNeil: It didn't matter how rough or stormy or how big the waves were, they never scared me.
Seiji Shimada: Me too. My family were all fisherman, lived on the water, lived

Seiji Shimada: *because* of the water. They all wanted me ...

Trailer is way better than actual film
17 May 2009 | by thecomicboxSee 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...
