From Asylum Pictures - the company that brought you 'Titanic 2', 'Mega Shark Versus Giant Octopus' and ...erm... 'Nazis at the Centre of the Earth' - comes a modern retelling of Herman Melville's classic novel.
Now I don't want to insult anyone's intelligence here (that's the film's job) but if you're expecting an intelligent and psychologically penetrating reinterpretation of the original source material you've come to the wrong place. (Just look at the DVD cover: it tells you everything you need to know about this turkey.)
Buuuuuut(!), if you're a fan of Melville's work and - more crucially - have a sense of humour then you could do a hell of a lot worse than this travesty. There's a fantastic drinking game for English Literature students in this movie. (Rennee O'Connor's opening line, "Call me Michelle"; the remote Typee atoll and the grave of Father Mapple; the nuclear missile 'Fedallah'; etc)
If you want the definitive film version of 'Moby Dick', check out John Huston's magnificent 1956 film. If you want to see all the bits Huston left out, check out Franc Roddam's impressive 1998 TV mini-series with Patrick Stewart. When the takeaway Pizza arrives and your third beer calls, check out this production. Think of it as knowing homage rather than dumbing down, otherwise you'll go crazy. Trust me, I KNOW.

Format: DVD
Whenever my faith in The Asylum begins to waver, a movie like 2010: Moby Dick comes along to remind me why I am, in all probability, the world's most unabashed admirer of this film company's low-budget wares. I'm certainly not saying this modern cinematic adaptation is going to supplant Herman Melville's epic masterpiece of literature, nor am I nominating it for any "best" of film awards. What I am saying is that 2010: Moby Dick is just great fun to watch. So what if Moby Dick could never be easily mistaken for an actual whale? Heck fire, Moby Dick has always been - more than anything else - a metaphor for any number of things dreamed up by literary critics. The same can be said of Ahab and his mad quest to exact his revenge on the great whale. This movie, in my opinion, actually manages to explore some of the same themes as the original novel - it doesn't get very far or do it all that well, but I was surprised just to see the effort made along those lines.

For all of its fakeness, Moby Dick is really a sight to behold - over six hundred feet long, battle-scarred, and bristling with the remains of dozens of harpoons over the years. Even a military submarine is no match for this beast of the sea - and that gets us to Ahab. Having seen the whale first-hand back in 1969 and blaming him for the loss of his leg, this young navy man overcame his physical handicap (and the fact that he is pretty much insane) to rise to the command of a nuclear submarine in today's American fleet - a submarine he personally refortified and redesigned as the final step in his master plan to hunt down and kill the whale that took his leg. Now he's gone rogue, telling his crew that he has orders to hunt down Moby Dick and boat-napping "whale language" expert Dr.

By Cartimand TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 1 May 2011
Format: DVD
Whilst it's certainly not the worst straight-to-syfy-channel movie I've seen, Moby Dick 2010 still suffers from the usual rather cardboard acting and downright dodgy CGI that blights most of these movies.

Updating the Moby Dick tale had potential I suppose, but they made this whale so ridiculously gigantic that any semblance of reality flies out the porthole the first time you set eyes on the great mass of blubber. If it wasn't for the ever-gorgeous Renée O'Connor (who still looks as hot as she did in Xena!), I would probably have rated this a lone-star movie.

Disengage brain, get a few beers in and Renee O'Connor in some skimpy swimwear (and a big whale) may just about hold your interest for 90 minutes!

"The Asylum" - The name of the Production company says it all really. This is up to their usual standard (ie - not very high). The biggest problem of course is their lack of funding, so when CGI is a must they can't come up with the goods. Frankly "Moby Dick" is a CGI disaster, particularly in the ridiculous 15' climax which beggars belief in it's stupidity. There are no "stars" as such - Barry Bostwick is way better than the material he has (or in truth, doesn't have), and Renee O'Connor is just, well, let's just say "miscast". (Secretly-I was curious to see what she looked like after "Xena", and, yes she is 12 years older, but still looks OK and is worthy of a better part.) I have to say there are some quite effective shock moments, particularly in the first 45' or so and I almost had high hopes, but they were sadly dashed. Dialogue daft, SFX poor, but if you have a few quid to spend and some beer/wine/whatever, and aren't too particular there are bits to enjoy, hence 3 stars, but only just, and you won't want to watch it over and over.

Embarrassing! Phenomenally ,, almost like a 5th grade stage show. Acting, sets, C.G. work A L L of it was as if there was an effort to save money by getting a hobbyist do the work in their garage or something.

This is an Asylum production, known for bad films. The technical aspects of the movie are about zero accurate except for the fact submarines go under water. You can not extend a periscope at 1700 feet beneath the water and see anything, let alone take a picture. You cannot poke a periscope through ice, nor can a submarine do a 90 degree up bubble without uncovering the reactor core and immediately going right back down the way they came. They don't then splash on the surface as the Seaview used to do. The list is endless of the gross technological impossibilities.

How did Ahab rise from an enlisted sonar technician to becoming the Captain of the Pequad? I think after losing his leg, he would of had a medical discharge. The movie stars Renee O'Connor (whale scientist) of Xena fame who wears a bikini top in the beginning, sporting her new set of love handles. She manages to do some decent acting amidst a sea of bad actors and stolen lines from the original "Moby Dick". Like Supercar, Moby Dick appears to be at home both on land, sea, and in the air. Ahab is obsessed with finding the white whale that took his leg while he was an enlisted man and goes rogue.

There are worse film out there, and most are produced by Asylum.
