Editorial Reviews

Thirty years ago, Ray Reiter (Charlie O'Connell, TV's Sliders) witnessed the brutal death of his parents at sea by a strange, octopus-like creature. Now determined to exact revenge, he joins archeologist Nicole (Victoria Pratt, TV's Day Break) on a perilous high-seas expedition to find a legendary Greek Opal--said to be guarded by the very beast that murdered his family. As they come face to face with the killer Kraken, they must also battle a ruthless crime lord (Jack Scalia, Red Eye), who will stop at nothing to seize the coveted treasure for himself. Co-starring Christa Campbell (The Wicker Man).
Special Feature(s) include: "Secrets of the Deep" Featurette; 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround Sound; DTS; Widescreen

1.0 out of 5 stars Oh lordie!! April 17, 2007
Format:DVD
"I've spent my whole professional career looking for this..." and the person who says this has to be all of 24 or 25 years old. Is this about a bad guy (Jack Scalia) or about a killer squid? Well, the plots are intertwined, but they really make no sense. We could have had two movies here. One about the search for treasure and the other about a guy trying to find the squid that killed his parents. This film had elements from "Tentacles", "Thunderball" and "Into the Blue". The acting was weak, the script was silly and the creature was from a special effects guy who is probably currently pursuing a different career path now. The ending was great. "Nobody's going to believe us" Well, they got that one right. I saw it and I don't believe is. The bottom line here is that if you see this one in the video store, keep looking. You can do better.

4.0 out of 5 stars AKA Deadly Waters June 18, 2007
Format:DVD
An underwater photographer and an archeologist combine forces in this one. The photographer has spent most of his life trying to find out about a sea creature that killed his parents when he was a boy. The archeologist is looking for some ancient treasure that sank after being traded on the black market. To make things interesting a cutthroat businessman is trying to find the treasure as his family owned it at one time. An incident with the archeologist gets the attention of the photographer and he manages to get himself included on future dives. Of the three parties he is the only one who has any real idea of what might be lurking under the surface.'

If the treasure is found, it could validate a theory that a certain myth has a basis in fact. But if the photographer is right then there is a very large giant squid in the area and it is willing to go on the attack. Now we have four forces, two good (photographer and archeologist) and two bad (criminal and squid) and a treasure in the middle. How it all works out is up to the viewer to discover.

This movie was in production right when the first live giant squid was caught. The first picture of a live one actually supports the predatory behavior of this one. There are a lot of small references to Jaws and some other fun moments. The special effects were well coordinated and batter than in many movies. The extras were interesting although it was funny to hear them using a different film title. All in all a pretty good little film and a very good sea monster story. Check it out.

2.0 out of 5 stars Squid Pro Quo... May 18, 2009
Format:DVD
I wasn't expecting much from this movie, so it was no big surprise that it had the distinct aroma of months old, sun-baked chum. KRAKEN: TENTACLES OF THE DEEP is the tale of a young man's quest to avenge the deaths of his parents (yep, they were kraken chow). It's also about some treasure-hunters and a gang of ne'er-do-wells (dressed in black of course) out to steal the sunken treasure. Oh yeah, there's a giant cgi squiddy in the mix as well. This Many-armed mess is almost as realistic as MR. LIMPET, and nearly as terrifying! In order to relive the horror of this movie, simply wrap your head in wet, well-cooked spaghetti while your cranium is submerged in the toilet. Flush. Repeat...

Format:DVD
A university PhD (played by a young woman in a bikini, so she must have begun college at age 9), enlists two interns (a young guy, and a young girl in a bikini) to find ancient Greek artifacts off the coast of ... western Canada?

(KRAKEN was filmed in Bulgaria and Canada, according to the end credits.)

But these Greek artifacts are guarded by a Giant Squid! And he's traveled all over the globe, over the course of millennia (or his ancestors had?) to protect these artifacts. Giant Squid kills anyone on a boat who even comes near his Greek treasure.

Luckily, this tall, brawny hero guy (whose parents were killed by Giant Squid when he was a young lad) joins PhD Bikini Girl. He doesn't want the Greek artifacts -- he wants vengeance on the Squid!

I emphasize that's he's tall and brawny, because his role is that of a rather wimpy guy. Brawny Hero stands idly by as the Villain menaces PhD Bikini Girl. Brawny Hero is clearly miscast.

That's typical of KRAKEN. ALL of the acting and writing are awful.

The Villain is ... some rich guy. He dresses all in black, and barks villainous commands to his underlings like, "I don't want any slip-ups!"

Villain limps with a cane, making him all the more sinister. He tries to pressure PhD Bikini Girl to join forces and share the Greek treasures with him. "I have the money. You have the brains. We'd make a great team!"

Villain is accompanied by black-clad underlings, including a Lara Croft type woman in a black leather jacket, and black ponytail. Her "look" resembles Martine Beswick in that early James Bond film ... THUNDERBALL?

This Evil Underling Girl NEVER says a word. She just nods. Can this actress speak? Is she mute?

This Story has been done Way To many Times. The Beast, Creature, Octopuss and countless others have the same theme. Group goes searching for Evidence of giant squad or To Kill it and they get stuck at sea and must fend of the onslaught of tenticals. I have seen it all before.
