“All told, I was slightly disappointed. Failure to live up to the advertising material similarly goes with the territory. But the gap between the glorious poster and underwhelming “reality” was particularly palpable on this occasion.” Grade: C Film Blitz
” …there’s always something happening — car chases, monster action, gunplay, and even a cute animal character who would probably be in the toy stores if this were an American film. The Big Octopus looks fairly good and suggests something Cthulhu-esque, but somehow, despite some pretty good elements, the whole is… unsatisfying.” Rivets on the Poster
