4.0 out of 5 stars good b movie made in the phillipines. FILMED in 3d., 2 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Amphibious (3D Vers.) (Blu-ray) (Blu-ray)
This was filmed in 3d back in 2010. It was not a conversion, instead it was filmed in native 3d. It was a low budget film to be sure but they made the best of what they had and it's a decent traditional monster on the loose film. When you do languages on this one it says 'german , Italy , german, but in fact it has NO Italian language tracks , the second one is a English track. Michael Pare leads the cast here and he's the only one you will know. The effects are very good on this one, they are mix of the old traditional robotic ones and cgi , (computer generated effects). They are quite effective too. If you enjoyed the MANY low budget films of the past featuring giant menacing creature then this one is for you. In this case it's a eupertrid , or giant sea scorpion. they dominated the oceans , long before the dinosaurs were around. Some of them came onto land and became the scorpions we know. In fact scorpions were t he first land animals. The action mainly takes place at a sea platform. Which is fine.I had recently watched 'the carra' or the crabs on dvd and it was made in 1981. It had no cgi but it was a fine low budget monster film. This is like that , only the effects are much better of course. I am a sucker for those big monsters on the loose films . so this was a fun ride for me. If you are a snob and don't like those old movies like 'taratula' of the crab monsters. then you might not like this one. In fact I don't think anyone has made a film like this for the big screen, except on tv, mainly the sci fi channel that is. But this is a true b movie , in every way , with a platform of villains and a big monster ready to eat them all. Theblu ray looks great and the 3d is really excellent. with NO ghosting on my , active 3d tv and glasses. I recently got another german film , 'the cargo' and the ghosting on the blu ray was bad. This one had perfect 3d! It is in 2d as well. however 3d always looks better and more natural and that's a good thing. There are no extras on this disc though.
