That infamous whale is bigger, badder and a whole lot stronger in this sci-fi reimagining of Herman Melville's classic tale of the battle between man, sea and sea creature starring "Xena" alum Renée O'Connor as the (traditionally male) narrator. But the boat -- now a high-tech submarine -- is also bigger, and Capt. Ahab (Barry Bostwick) is as determined as ever to settle the score and take down the mighty sea mammal that maimed him.
"The Asylum" is back with another mega monster flick and this time around they have taken the classic tale of Moby Dick and brought it into 2010. The tale is about a Capt. Ahab who lost a leg to the creature years before and now he is determined to kill the beast once and for all no matter the cost. After seeing a number of these films from "The Asylum" you would think people would stop complaining about bad acting or bad effects, it gets old and if this isn't you kind of thing move on instead of making such a fuss over it all. That being said this is similar to "Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus" and "Mega Piranha" so if you like these creature features I think you are going to find this one to be entertaining as well. The production is pretty good considering the budget and the effects range from from poor to not so bad but the cheese factor is what the film is all about so it doesn't really matter because you can sit back and laugh along with it. The cast does a good job here and like always "The Asylum" is able to bring in a few friendly faces, this time around it's Renée O'Connor and Barry Bostwick who plays the lead actor, he takes the role and runs with it and a perfect campy kind of way. Bostwick delivers some of the best and most hilarious lines in the film and for that alone it is worth watching. If I had to compare the film to "Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus" and "Mega Piranha" I would have to say it wasn't as good and it never reached the campiness or cheese factor the other two had but that doesn't mean it wasn't fun to watch. The bottom line is if you don't care for these films watch something else but if you like them then I suggest picking this one up. I had a fun time watching it so get yourself some snacks and leave your brain at the door and just go with it, if nothing else you are sure to get some good laughs from it.
