And it should stay lost in The Pacific...
21 April 2017 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

I was indeed lured in by the movie cover, because it does seem somewhat interesting, and having read the synopsis of the movie, I decided to give it a go.

Now, with the movie seen, I wonder how and why Brandon Routh ended up in a movie such as this. Has the well quickly dried out that quickly? The story of the movie is pretty straight forward, although a bit too simplistic and it actually doesn't really offer much to the audience. So you essentially just disconnect your brain and lean back in the chair and go along for the ride here.

"Lost in the Pacific" might actually have accomplished so much more if they had a proper budget for the CGI and special effects. For a movie that is centered on creatures and monsters, then it is essential to have a proper budget to spend on coming up with creatures that look impressive and realistic on the screen. "Lost in the Pacific" didn't have such a budget, and we are instead treated to some hilarious and very, very poorly animated creatures, that end up more as creatures you laugh at than creatures you would fear.

And the special effects, aside from the laughable creatures, was nothing of any noteworthy mention. They tried to put special effects in there, such as the airplane, but failed at turning out a product that would pass as believable and realistic. And that whole lack of proper CGI and special effects just furthered the low budget feel that permeated through the entire movie.

The cast ensemble for the movie was adequate, taking into consideration what kind of movie this was, and it was of course Brandon Routh who was the billed lead here. I wonder why the movie makers opted to go for Yuqi Zhang for this movie and made her speak English. Sure, she is a talented enough actress, but English is not what she masters the most. Yuqi Zhang's English sounds like she is speaking by a voice modulator, it is broken, stumped and halting. And it ends up being a thing of irritation and annoyance, rather than just a part of the movie.

The action in the movie, and bless them for trying, well let's just say it was there. But it was nowhere near anything interesting or worthwhile to mention.

This was by no means an impressive movie in any way, and it is hardly the type of movie that you will watch more than once, if you even get to watch it once. Yeah, it is the type of movie that came and went without even as much as a breeze in its wake. There is some kind of enjoyment to a movie of this type, and that is at the ridiculous special effects and the campy, cheesiness to it all.
