A group of would be drug lords heads home after negotiations go sour with the Chinese Triad. The Triad sever communications
with the group by destroying their boat. They somehow escaped the death trap and wind up on a worse death trap. A floating
lab which was converted from an old oil rig.
Now they are trapped with Charlie, a great white shark mutation that has absorbed all the science team and is going after
the group one by one.
If all the group was just scummy drug lords I wouldn't have liked as much, but there was one DEA agent and one girl who had
no idea what her boyfriend was doing. The bigging part of the movie they were grilling the DEA agent about what happened
in that stupid third degree hot lights nonsense which wasn't realistic to begin with, they can't do that anymore, not even
in the 1990s. His wounds from the fights still bleeding, I mean they'd treat the gushing wounds first, they wouldn't drag
him into an interrogation room before medical attention, even the slimmest lawyer know you can't do that. But the creature
effects once they got into the creature was cool and the movie is worth watching, 7 STARS.
Zedd is being too kind again, sure the creature effects are cool, but was it worth waiting for? There is some serious character
issues to deal with and the story drags on at points. To me it's not worth more then 5 STARS.
ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):
+ STORY (Basic but works.)
+ CAST (The cast does a great acting job.)
+ CREATURE EFFECTS (The creature effects are well done.)
+ DIALOG (A bit cheesy but fun>)
+ ACTION (Plenty of fights to go around.)
ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):
- TREATMENT OF A DEA AGENT (They way they're treating him is criminal.)
- CHARACTERS (VOLTRON thought there was serious character issues.)
- LAGS (VOLTRON also thought it lagged in places.)
