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 Rene O’Connor as the (traditionally male) narrator. But the boat — now a high-tech submarine — is also bigger, and Capt. Ahab is as determined as ever to settle the score and take down the mighty sea mammal that maimed him.
Writer:Paul Bales (screenplay), Herman Melville (story)

It's considered to be among the worst films ever made, it's really stupid, it feels like a big budget version of a low budget 80's action film, it's utterly ludicrous, convoluted in its storytelling, and just plain idiotic. But...I still liked it for all these stupid reasons. It's pure trash, but it was fun trash to me. I had a blast with this ridiculous film since I enjoyed the action scenes, I thought the acting was okay, I liked the music, and I think it's a lot of fun overall. I like my trash and this film is among my prized pieces of trash now. I liked it, but most will not.

Dianna C (au) wrote: This is the second time I've watched this film, and I still find it just as wonderfully weird this second time around, very atmospheric and moving, love the parts where melancholy is present, it somehow screams loudly in its expression, although subtle and understated at the same time..Nice soundtrack too..

Sgt C (ca) wrote: (55%)(contains spoilers) A somewhat more than reasonable drama looking at death and love in later life. With its strong cast it gets by a lot smoother than it would have, as really the story never develops into something overly interesting or engaging, or even that thought provoking. There's also issues with the making of Cain's character American, as his performance would have been more natural and less distracting in his native accent, also considering that there is no real reason for him to be American so it just feels like a self-inflicted misstep. The inclusion of Mr Morgan's offspring in the second half only partly works as they do bring another dimension to his character, but they are largely unlikeable, and the final few scenes involving his son's relationship with the lovely Clemence Poesy are even less convincing and if anything even more contrived than old man Morgan's. With that aside there is still a decent 70 odd minute movie to be found within this, and it's too well put together and quite sweet at times to be valueless.
