Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
File under "Low Budget B-Movie, 1950s Style, Nature Gone Awry." Little is different in Octopus II than what was in Them! oh so many movies and years ago. In fact, the people populating Octopus II live in the Land Where No One Sees Movies, because if they did, they would know to stop ridiculing everyone who claims to have seen 50-foot tentacles dragging people into the river and they'd get busy killing the critter before it really goes amok. But amokness is the point of the story, and it hits a high point in amokedness early on, when Nick and Walter spend about 10 minutes of screen time fighting squiggly tentacles under water. The action is fairly competent -- although don't expect much in the computer-generated variety of special effects -- and the acting is appropriately arch. The whole thing is like the monster itself -- voracious but dumb. The scene in which the creature destroys the Statue of Liberty with the World Trade Center standing in the background does not sit well. Yuck.
