Bad TV adaptation of a good book

The source material of this TV movie is a novel called White Shark. It was a failure when published since the public thought it was about a great white shark, instead of what it was, namely a crazed tale about a Nazi experiment re-awakened. The novel's plot played like the movie Shock Waves, but gorier and loopier. It was a great read thanks to Peter Benchley's storytelling ability. It was nothing if not a wonderful guilty pleasure that would have made a great movie had they filmed it straight...

...The problem was the producers couldn't leave well enough alone and decided to take a grade Z plot line that worked because of the authors skill, and change it so that it was a grade Z plot line in the hands of a grade Z writer and director. The result is a laughably bad over long movie that has a laughable but cool monster and little else. This is a movie to get drunk and make fun of. Its a so good its great film, or would be except its way way too long.

Solid creature-feature flick

As a TV mini-series, Creature ranks pretty much as first rate.

Although hardly original story wise, it's still an interesting creature feature flick that doesn't have too many lulls despite it's three hour running time. There are moments you could easily see get the axe should this be pruned down to feature length but overall the film runs along smoothly and at an adequate pace.

It's quite atmospheric at times and suspenseful and special effects are top notch. There's not any gore here and a seasoned horror fan can easily see where some red grue and more could have been spliced in. But no matter, it works despite that. The cast is also quite good with Craig T. Nelson in top form and Kim Cattrall looking lovely as ever.

Verdict: 7 out of 10. A very good time filler on a slow night.

This movie fails so hard that it approaches win from the other side.

Grab some popcorn and skittles 'cause this movie is epic! Creature is one of the worst movies I have ever seen, and as such I consider it one of the best. Nothing speaks to a true B-rated sci-fi fanatic like government cover-ups, outlandish monsters, strained family ties, and the manipulation the human genome. And, Ladies and Gentlemen let me tell you: this movie does not just speak, it sings. I would recommend this film to anyone who consider themselves a connoisseur of the B-rated genre. Yes, Creature is about 3 hours long (with commercials) but the ending is pure poetry and very worth the wait. Creature is a classic cross-section of the epic sci-fi; as such I recommend that it be viewed at 2:00am - no earlier.
