This movie has been unfairly denounced by some reviewers here and elsewhere, in my opinion! As an entry in the B-movie genre it is outstanding...it would be my first choice to see as a drive-in movie!
So the octopus appears to morph into many different sizes throughout the film. Minor detail. This is a low-budget flick that has no pretensions! The square-jawed good guys are all lovably flawed, and although the character of Dr. Finch (played by Carolyn Lowery) was thrown in as eye candy and non-essential love interest which never quite lived up to expectations, I liked her character and her performance. Kudos to Rico Ross as Mr. Brickman, second-in-command on the doomed nuclear sub that is done in by both mutant octopus and truly stomach-turning on-board terrorist.
Most of all, this film offers the talents of one of my favorite newcomers, George Stanchev, as young seaman Salvanto. He does a super job manning the sub's controls and his character's untimely demise tugs at our heartstrings. The video is worth it simply to see him flashing his brilliant smile. (He also portrayed "Davy" in the Monkees biopic "Daydream Believers".)
Well, what are you waiting for? Go get "Octopus"!!

I take OCTOPUS for what I think its producers wanted: a corny, old-fashioned let's run from the giant monster movie. Sure, it's effects are no where near what a larger budget would have entailed. But, still, there are some pretty neat shots, especially of inky's mouth! Jay Harrington as Turner, is so inept and bungling, it had to be intended. How many times does the slippery terrorist slip away? And poor guy won't shoot a gun in cold blood? Remember---he's not a special agent..he's an analyst. David Beecroft as the demoted captain has a world-weary edge that gives his performance both a sharp and comic bend. And with all the crew going psycho after the octopus attack, it certainly lends credence to the government's psychological profiling attempts. The addition of the ocean liner as the climactic finish also bends convention wisely. And, hey, we had to let Turner be heroic at SOMETHING!!!
Corny but I had fun!

Cross over stories, each that could not stand on its own go down together. We get treated to an opening scene of a submarine fight. Then we get to see some old lady leave a suspicious bag off at a CIA outpost. This leads to a submarine mission to retrieve a bad guy and it will soon cross over a strange location where many ships have disappeared. We have the standard clich' characters. Of course the bed guy is extra bad and the girl is extra sexy and the others are dumb and dumber.

After turning into the formula "it's going to eat us all"

So do they all get eaten one by one like bon-bons?

Or does everyone have calamari for life?

This movie rocks!!! Think "The Hunt for Red October" meets "Aliens" meets "Close Encounters Of The Third Kind" meets "Titanic" meets "The Division".
Jay Harrington (dreamboat!) of TV's "The Division" attempts to save the world from a giant radioactive Octopus, while fending off unstable submarine commanders, terrorists, smugglers, and the bends.
While at times the romantic subplot felt forced, overall I felt that the movie did a fine job of balancing subtle comedic interplay and acerbic dialogue
And the part where the mini sub blew up was awesome!

In Octpus a nuclear submarine care toxic chemicals is ground at the botttom of the sea. The radiaoctive materials in to the ocean mutate octupus. That grow to godzilla sized porportins.
This move in my opion is a mondern day version of peter Benchly class movie the Beast. Thilled with action, gore and adventure. Rate R for gore bad language and violence. The CIA gut is histirical. If you like thise she action packed octpusus 2.
