"First of, I completely agree with the other reviews for this movie.
My five year old insisted on renting this movie, because he was hoping to see those "scary sea creatures". He was totally disappointed, as was I with the movie quality. Most computer-generated special effects were too much like a video game clips, Movie plot was silly. The worst thing was the sound quality. Music was way too loud comparing to the dialogs' sound. Actors mumbled a lot, when I tried turning the "subtitles" on to understand what they were saying, I found out that there was no option for it. Basically I missed half of the conversations."

"I thought this was a B movie when I rented it, so I wasn't expecting a LOT. But this movie was still disappointing!
Silly looking creatures in the special effects department didn't help, the VERY loud music which covered up a lot of the conversations REALLY didn't help, but the plot was the main problem.It started off okay, the plot I mean, but 2/3 of the way through it got ridiculous. And I have to say, at the point I realized the "heroine" and her x hubby were aiding and abetting the very enemy who was currently in the process of destroying the human race, I lost all desire to finish the viewing.I did finish watching,however, but nothing was done to correct this unbelievable ERROR. At the end, we are supposed to be happy about their accomplishments, even though it meant the earth's destruction eventually. BIZARRE....Is this a new wave of science fiction.. where wiping out the EARTH is a GOOD thing????If you have to watch this, I recommend watching it on an old TV set. At the end, you'll probably want to throw something at the screen."

"There is a trench near the North Pole and heat is pouring out of it. If left unchecked, this would result in massive global flooding. The problem is being investigated by the UN.One scientist wants to understand what is going on while another just wants to blow up the trench mindlessly. guess which one the UN supports?Well, the heat is actually artificial. It is being created by an ancient race of eel-like creatures that have awakened to spawn. They are intelligent. They think the world belongs to them and not humans. Can a deal be reached?Well, at one point the UN, in its infinite wisdom, feels the way to end the heat is by blowing up 50+ 1-megaton nuclear missiles (can you say massive radiation and HEAT?).There may be a chance of coexisting with the eel-creatures but there is no time to work out the solution now. But maybe if the creatures hibernate some more, there will be time later for proper communications.Average effects and moderate acting are added to the odd plot. Anyone who has followed world events for the past year or two will really wonder at the writers who dreamed up the UN scenarios. Seems a small group of scientists are making very important decisions without the rest of the UN. At one point the group actually answers to the President (yeah, right).Anyway, all of the silliness combines from all directions to make the film work (a single serious element would have made it terrible). Did you know it was an okay idea to fire high-powered rifles aboard a submarine?"
Killer electric sea-ponies!

"This film promises you giant killer eels. What it gives you is a carbon copy of THE ABYSS. The eels get about two minutes of screentime and look like snakes with horse heads. That, and they never do anything cool.
Bad acting and horrid effects ensue when an unknown heat source is detected below the Polar Ice Caps. Guess what the cause is: Super-intelligent electric eels with thoughts of world domination!
Take my advice and only rent this movie to laugh at it with a group of freinds."

"Deep shock is possibly the worst movie I've ever seen in my life. Hardly ever do you actually 'WANT' to turn a movie off. This one made the list. Not worth renting! If you are considering buying this release for somebody, you are a bad person. If you happen to see it on cable, don't watch it, go out and enjoy the day. Avoid this movie at all costs."
