Since this movie has a rather lame reputation, of course, I wasn't expecting much from the damned thing but since it was James Cameron's directing debut, I still wanted to check it out. Indeed, many people might think that James Cameron started his career with 'The Terminator' but it wasn't actually his first directing effort. Indeed, his first movie was in fact this massive piece of garbage. Basically, it was some kind of very cheap and boring version of 'Jaws' except that they replaced the sharks with some flying piranhas. Actually, to be honest, they didn't even look like some piranhas but it was rather difficult to tell with such horrendous special effects. Eventually, it was actually rather funny that the special effects looked so bad as Cameron would become eventually the reference in this area. Anyway, the story was just boring, the characters were not interesting or entertaining at all and the acting was just abysmal. It is quite understandable that Cameron would like to forget this movie all together (he officially disowned the damned thing) . Anyway, after this movie, he did bless us with some outstanding movies. To conclude, it was pretty bad and not really worth a look, even if you are curious to see how James Cameron started his impressive career.
