A fun, ridiculous, very very subpar Jaws ripoff. There are about 8 absolutely hysterical closeups on the whale's eye looking very menacingly at Richard Harris. So great. I am impressed with their whale footage. With the exception of the hilarious close ups on a the whale out of the water staring at boats like he's the angry chicken from Family Guy, it was very hard to tell what was the rubber whale and what was real footage. How did they do the shots of a whale angrily running into boats?
