This, to me, plays like a television movie. There isn't a lot of dialogue. A lot of the movie is visual with music. And that's not a bad thing. It moves a little slow as well. Klaus Kinski is one creepy bastard as Count Dracula. This is the second Werner Herzog film I've seen and so far he's 50/50 with me.
I don't know anything about whales but I find it hard to believe that a whale is this smart. As in planning things and knows what it's doing. I feel like this movie is just pig backing off of Jaws even though it came out 2 years later. I love animals and all but this movie is pretty terrible.
