The kind of poor special effects that are always so bad they're good. Whether it's a stoner getting his head bitten off to a giant swamp monster getting stuck in a swampboat propeller
Mutated creature movies have been around for a long time and some of them are classics, but unfortunately 'Frankenfish' does not fall into this category. The story is weak to say the least, and with the stock characters, lack of action and the seen it all before ending, this movie doesn't have a lot going for it. I would go as far to say that even with the shortish running time, it is long and boring. The fish themselves are probably the only redeeming feature as the over the top design and hokey animation give them a comedic feel that suits them perfectly. There are many better examples of this type of film out there, and I urge you to go and fish them out.
Also it co-stars China Chow, can't believe she uses that name. You may remember her from The Big Hit with Marky Mark (sans Funky Bunch).
So much fun it hurt, And so bad it gave me herpes!!!!
