This is an adventure film. Some action with the animals and a man whipping the animals but that's about it. Why is this film considered Science Fiction I'll never know because it's far from it -- not one ounce of Sci-Fi within the film, not unless the ship/boat is suppose to be Sci-Fi. It's also a Romance with the animal trainer and the girl he rescues.
Anyway, the film is quite dull, it's got a couple of cute moments, some beautiful animals and a couple of dorky characters. There is also an animal trainer/tamer that mainly (pretends to) whips them.
I have no way of knowing how these animals were treated on and off the sets but I doubt they were treated all that well - but I don't know for sure.
There's not much to see nor much else to say about this one.
