A nice guy recommended me a movie:
“…. and it involves one female diver against 4 male divers. The female diver also surfaces and fights men on a boat.”
Well, for a moment I was really thrilled! A female diver fights against 4 male divers??? Or even 5 if I’m counting right… Sounds great, sounds awesome!
But then I thought…. well, why don’t I know that scene after 900 years of searching for such scenes? And I got a really bad feeling…. 😉
Here is a preview:

And here is the video from hell:
Well….. OH MY GOD!!! Or rather… WTF!!!
Ok, you have a frogwoman heroine and several evil divers…. and they actually do fight underwater…. and THIS is the result of the filming?
I’m not sure if I should laugh my ass off or break down in tears…. or both.
A perfect example of how to totally ruin potential great scenes 🙁
Some folks (not me) are complaining that the scuba battles in Thunderball are too long and “slow” as the water slows down the action.
I also remember that the director of the Thunderball remake “Never say never again” was also no fan of underwater fights.
So, perhaps the director of this “movie” thought about how he could make these fights more intense and with more speed (in his opinion).
And his solution was seemingly to just increase the playback speed… of many action scenes (even on land).
Well, the result is laughably bad… in my opinion… and totally ruins these scenes.
The murky water is also a problem and they seemingly had no underwater lights at all…
In the end, I can’t enjoy these underwater fights at all and am really annoyed afterward.
The wetsuit of the frogwoman is uninteresting and very loose… I guess so the actress/stunt woman could do her martial arts moves. Quite a turn-off.
I’m 99% sure that these scenes were partially cut, as we don’t see the first two frogmen get hit by the spear, but well…. cut or not cut… all hope is lost here.
Oddly enough a german DVD of this “movie” is released in a few days for very little money, guess I will buy that one for the scuba collection as a perfect example on how to NOT do a scuba fight scene.
There are no more scuba scenes with her in this one.
Wanna know the title of this insane flick?
What do you think of these scenes?
Let me know and post a comment!
