Most of us have considered the possibility of dying in a horrific flying accident; a thought chilling enough to bring anyone out in a cold sweat! In his film 'Pirana II - Flying Killers', the director, James Cameron, lends another dimension to our fears, as he depicts the very real possibility of fish evolving into flying killers! Throughout history, fisherman have reported sightings of strange, 'fish like', flying creatures. Although these fish can only fly at around ten feet above sea level, for a distance of only a few yards, their intensions are obvious; the persuit of human flesh. Throughout the film, the director deals with this delicate issue in a very professional manner. The film is a thought provoking portrayal of the extremes
of human nature. Firstly the viewer is subjected to the realisation of human greed, coupled with the depiction of our tendancy to go 'into denial' over matters that we find to terrifying to face. This occurs 'Jaws style', as the autorities refuse to listen to the advise of people who have not had their priorities clouded by averice. Although the director shows the darker side of human nature, some brilliant acting from both: Tricia O'Niel, and Steve Marachuck, restores the viewers faith in mankind, as they battle to save the world from this terrible foe. The outcome? I recommend you find out for yourself, and, after watching this, I wonder if you'll ever feel safe to go near the water again!
