Editorial Reviews

When a bloody freak accident takes out their captain, a boatload of international tourists on a whale-watching expedition must fight for their lives while stranded in the middle of the ocean. Help seems to arrive in the form of a helpful whaler who offers to take them back to shore, but instead he strands them on a rusty, terrifying barge of death with his insane family who are determined to hunt down and kill the trespassers one by one! Featuring an appearance by horror legend Gunnar Hansen (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), this shocking, blood-spattered trip on the high seas unleashes a night of terror only a lucky few will survive.

    What do you expect from the film "Harpoon: Whale Watching Massacre"? Or "Reykjavik Whale Watching Massacre" (its alternate title)? Whether a straightforward slasher film or a horror spoof of the genre, you will naturally expect something fun and exciting. I'm sorry to disappoint you, but the best thing about the Icelandic movie is its clever title.

    The basic storyline is a familiar one, but not without some twists. A group of whale watching tourists is trapped in a whaler owned by a murderous family having a grudge against environmentalists. There is so much bloodshed, but no memorable killer like Leatherface. Characters are all stereotypes, the killers or the victims.

    You will find that not many characters are likable, and that is probably intentional. The script is penned by Sjón Sigurdsson, acclaimed author and poet, also Oscar-nominated (with Lars von Trier and Björk) for the song "I've Seen It All" in "Dancer in the Dark." Like Björk's dark musical, the story is told with a cynical view on human nature.

    That means you will never know who will survive in"Reykjavik Whale Watching Massacre". That should be a good thing, but as the film suffers from the heavy-handed narrative, bad editing and wooden acting, the end result is dull and uninteresting, except in a few scenes where hapless tourists get killed in a very stupid way.

    Icelandic-born Gunnar Hansen ("The Texas Chain Saw Massacre") appears as Captain Pétur, but his role is rather small and may not be what you would think.

    This is Iceland's attempt at a slasher/ horror type film. It is in English or subtitled where not. A group of tourists go whale watching, but there are no whales to watch so the captain radios for help. He is lured to another vessel location under the ruse of seeing whales. Along the way, an obnoxious drunk Frenchman (Apparently Icelanders have the same respect for the French as the British)accidentally shish kabobs the captain of the boat. As the captain lays there dying, the first mate, damages the boat, takes a small craft and leaves them stranded. The adrift group is "rescued" by a family who used to whale, but can't because of international treaties etc. They hate whale watchers and foreigners. Once they are on board their ship, a woman's cell phone starts to work. She is quickly killed by one of the family as the rest of the rescued group scatters about the boat playing a deadly game of hide-and-seek, with the pretty blond tied up by a religious member of the family who wants to sacrifice her for the lord- go figure. Contains blood, killing, and nudity.

    This movie is certainly better than many of the low budget B horror flicks, but fails to generate any real tension. This is perhaps I have seen so many of these things I have grown numb to people being harpooned or burned alive. The Japanese are stereo-typed with their taking photos, male chauvinism, and kamikaze ability. The Frenchman is obnoxious, you want him dead.

    Yes, Gunnar Hansen,native of Iceland, (Leatherface) is in the movie. He plays kindly old Captain Petur and dies early in the movie. I didn't recognize him without someone else's face on his head.

    Man, Icelanders are still taking the international ban on whaling pretty hard indeed. A few of them apparently have way too much time on their hands, what with the all the cold weather and long dreary nights with nothing to do but complain about the ban and fashion little whale models out of wood to hawk to the wretched tourists whose zeal for whale watching just pours salt in the wounds of those no longer permitted to mindlessly butcher those beautiful creatures. It's just too much for some of them - well, three of them, at least, who go strange in the head and decide to keep practicing their murderous ways on an entirely different animal. I think you know where this is going. It makes for a dark and depressing film that relies far too much on gore and the casting of Gunnar "Leatherface" Hansen for its appeal. This movie makes Iceland look like the most depressing country on earth, and its treatment of foreign tourists can do nothing but hurt the Icelandic tourist industry as a whole. You think you've had a bad day - try waking up late, getting raped, witnessing a horrible accidental death, being tied up and tortured, and then being hunted down by a family of inbred lunatics in the space of a few hours. That's just part of one poor young lady's experience in this movie.

    This definitely isn't your standard horror movie, especially given the fact that the cast of characters doesn't even share a common language.

    Set mostly at sea, in the waters around Iceland, Harpoon: Whale Watching Massacre (2009), is a strange little suspense thriller, that probably won't do much to promote tourism to the small north Atlantic republic. The film follows the adventures of a group of tourists, who unexpectedly find themselves in a grim struggle for survival. There are a few messy kills, some tense atmospheric moments, and even the appearance of a semi-frisky killer whale, but overall the film isn't as cohesive or nearly as frightening as it could have been. A bit hard to follow in places, and with a few plot twists, the movie's unconventional finish leaves many questions unanswered. Spoilers follow, so abandon ship if you feel the need.

    An assorted group of tourists board a small boat with the hope of catching a glimpse of some whales. The party of ten includes three middle-aged female tourists, and a Japanese couple and their aide. Out in the open sea, the captain (Gunnar Hansen) is has a spear run through his chest in a freak accident. Upon hearing the news, the criminal-minded ship's mate disables the craft, and then departs in a rubber raft, leaving the tourists to manage on their own. Icelandic hospitality seems to be seriously lacking, until a small boat arrives, and ferries the survivors over to a larger fishing boat. When the visitors are gathered on deck, the crew of the whaling ship, a mother and her two sons, suddenly whip out weapons and begin attacking the tourists.

    Two of the middle-aged women are the first to go, one takes a hammer through the skull, and the other is tossed overboard after having her throat slit. Tryggvi (Helgi Bjornsson), one of the whalers, tests out shooting skills, sinking a harpoon into one of the tourists attempting to swim away.
