When a US plane is taken down over seas by an unknown assailant, the army is sure it was North Korea and a new war is about to break out. Even worse, the true attacker is an alien armed force and only one old battleship can stop them.
Mario Van Peebles,
Neerja is the story of the courageous Neerja Bhanot, who sacrificed her life while protecting the lives of 359 passengers on the Pan Am flight 73 in 1986. The flight was hijacked by a terrorist organization.
A violent tempest and a set of lightning flashes above the infamous Bermuda Triangle takes out one of Air Force One's engines, and President DeSteno narrowly escapes in his pod. As Chief Trip Oliver and Admiral Linda Hansen's Special Forces team comb the ocean to locate the president before he runs out of oxygen, monstrous tentacles emerge from the bottom of the sea, attacking the ships and everything in sight. Now, modern weapons are completely ineffective against the gigantic adversary, and the clock is ticking. Can they stop the beast from the sea?Written by
Straight off the bat I must confess to only watching the first 52 minutes of this movie before I had to relieve the agony by sticking red-hot needles in my eyes. This movie is both puzzling and depressing in equal measure. Why do Messrs. Rimawi and Latt appear in the opening credits, yet there is no mention of The Asylum? Why does Linda Hamilton appear? (I'm assuming that post-divorce from James Cameron she doesn't need the money). Why has she lost all acting ability? She's the same age as me, so why does she now look about 103? (Sorry Linda, but it's the truth). Why didn't the producers spend the money on a well-scripted and acted story rather than blow it on 3rd rate CGI and dodgy sets? I don't know the answer to any of these, but I do know that I found the experience of watching this movie to be quite saddening. Apart from the disappointment of seeing one of your cinema heroines being reduced to this dross, the very fact that films as bad as this continue to see the light of day engenders a sense of ennui akin to that felt when contemplating the end of mankind.
This movie's plot and the quality (or otherwise) of the lighting, music etc. are irrelevant in this case. The overall sense of crapness drowns out any potentially less than awful aspect of the film. Go and watch some paint dry, or some grass grow, or just gouge your eyes out - any of these are preferable to watching Bermuda Tentacles.
