MV5BMTYxMjUyNTc3NF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwOTYxNjYyMQ@@__V1_SY317_CR3,0,214,317_AL_Review (Spoils): An orca whale (or dolphin for some) witnesses the death of its child and mate so it goes on a rampage on a local fishermen’s harbour area. This is all at the cost of a man named Nolan who is an Irish Canadian fisherman who mistaken the beast for the bull whale. This comes on after the successful l of the famous and classic Jaws.

We have a killer whale that screams in anger, lots of pulling people out to into the water to eat them, we have bit off legs, some whale chasing, and some smashed dock housing and some drowning. Basically we have a orca on the verge of killing for revenge. This is a movie done on fake graphics but the topic of itself makes you root for the whale, this not a animal lover type film. If anything it will piss you off. The acting is not that great either.

Rating: Being a total animal lover this film did touch me and piss me right off. You wanted to see the town get smashed and eaten by this great beast. The opening scene does set the pace for this. Its no Jaws but I seen a lot worse.
