Fierce Creatures

"Can you say 'complete waste of time and money'? Gooood."
1 stars

Okay, short and sweet cos this movie deserves nothing more.

Have you seen A Fish Called Wanda?


Fine. Then you've seen Fierce Creatures.

Only A Fish Called Wanda was ten times better.

The second half of Fierce Creatures was completely reshot, mainly because it was awful. As a result, there's continuity errors galore, editing mismatching, and a completely moronic last act.

Those involved should have started again, or better, try something else.

That is all. Next.
