REALLY ENTERTAINING

FRANKINFISH

Have you ever seen a movie and thought "man that was a far out there concept", and then thought "hey that was actually entertaining". Well if you have ever thought that then chances are you were talking about this flick right here. This movie despite having a funny yet horrible name is just one of those fun out there type of creature features in the same vein as "Lake Placid" [the first one]. I remember seeing this movie the first time on the Sci-Fi Channel and thinking man I have to buy that.

The story is your basic loose genetically enhanced animal that tends to have a taste for human flesh. To be more precise it is about a medical researcher and a biologist investigating a situation out in Louisiana after a body turns up mutilated in the swamp. Now as much as that sounds like Lake Placid it really is not, but this could have been a better sequel perhaps then the one that came out. Once out in the swamp they meet the people who live on the water, and well the fish start their attack at that point. From that point on this movie kicks into high gear and I really mean that, the kills in this movie are awesome. There is even a point in this movie that I think is the best death by shot gun ever, or at least the most surprising. This is not just one of those over the top b movies it actually makes sense at times, even the acting is for the most part up to par.

Tory Kittles is pretty good in the lead role and makes for a believable hero, though at times he seems to be trying to hard. K.D. Aubert is just as good as the "please rescue me" damsel in distress, but she is quick to turn on her actual boyfriend for the lead. China Chow is on the same level as the previous two as she gives a pretty decent performance, and is involved in one of the best moments of the movie. Matthew Rauch is by far the most entertaining actor on the film as the egotistical cowardly city boy, he is actually the most believable person on the entire film. His character is hilarious and is really how most people would react, absolutely the MVP of the movie. Donna Biscoe, Tomas Arana, Mark Boone Junior, Reggie Lee all deliver great performances as well.

Writers Scott Clevenger, Simon Barrett came up with a really entertaining film and director Mark A.Z. Dippé really delivered with their idea and crafted a pretty entertaining movie. This is not a classic film but it is a cool movie, it is full of cheese and is a true b movie but it is a good flick. Watch this on a Saturday afternoon or night and grab the pizza.

Pros: at least the characters were well written     Cons: I'm limited to 15 words     The Bottom Line: The bottom line is this is a stinko of a movie     Generally I like to start a review by giving props to the writer, director, etc., of a movie as well as list the rating and awards.  But, seriously, does anyone give a flyin frig if I prop up these culprits that put out this lame movie, Frankenfish?   You know how they always …

About this movie

Wiki

The follow-up from Mark A.Z. Dippe, FRANKENFISH stars Muse Watson (I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER) and Tory Kittles in a story that pits a pack of huge, mutant, flesh-eating fish against the human inhabitants of a Bayou town. A genetic engineering experiment gone horribly awry, these monsters are the result of a cross between a fish and a snake, and can travel on land as well as swim, and they have a taste for blood, leaving a trail of gruesome corpses up and down the river. The local authorities don't realize what they are up against before the death toll mounts considerable, and by then it may just be too late to stop the creatures.
