A decent B-movie mash-up of Alien, The Poseidon Adventure & Die Hard with octopus-like beasties attacking those aboard a ship in the South China seas.
It isn't that good, but then again, it isn't trying to be either and though the CGI creatures look rather terrible, the plot is tongue-in-cheek enough to let these technicalities pass by.
