My reaction
Synopsis: a diver awakens something evil
How I saw it: on video, yesterday (have on DVD)
Concept: Indifferent.
Story: Bad.
Characters: Indifferent.
Dialog: Indifferent.
Pacing: Bad.
Cinematography: Bad.
Special effects/design: Bad.
Acting: Bad. Most are okay, but the lead (Martin Kove) is terrible.
Music: Bad.
Subjective Rating: 3/10 (Bad). It’s a stupid movie, but at least James Earl Jones is awesome as a Shakespeare-quoting rogue.  And there’s a monster, so that’s something.
Objective Rating: 1.3/4 (Bad).
