Some things should just stay submerged and out of sight...
I found "Queen Crab" on Amazon marketplace, although it was titled "Claws" on the DVD release. And being a sucker for creature features, and the low price of the movie, made me pick it up and give it a chance. I didn't know anything about the movie prior to buying it in terms of story or cast ensemble.
I managed to sit through about 30 minutes or so of this movie before I gave up out of sheer and utter complete boredom. Very little, and I do mean that literally, happened throughout the course of this movie.
The storyline, at least from what I managed to sit through, was about a scientist's formula that could rapidly increase growth, that quickly got out of control.
"Queen Crab" (aka "Claws") had some questionable CGI effects right from the very beginning, and the CGI animated crab wasn't looking particularly convincing in most scenes. This just meant that the movie took on a comical demeanor.
The characters in the movie were sort of one-dimensional, and no one was in particularly memorable. I am sure that the people on the cast list were doing good jobs with their given roles, but they just had very little to work with in terms of script and storyline from writer and director Brett Piper.
Actually I was ready to get up and turn off the DVD way before the approximate 30 minutes I endured, and that was when an explosion destroyed the Laboratory. It was so inconsistent, because the parents were down in the basement, yet the explosion happened in the tower, and that still managed to kill the two people in the basement. It was just so stupid. And the fact that the explosion and CGI effects here were not even anywhere near being believable.
I have no plans to return to finish watching "Queen Crab", as it just didn't have anything to offer in terms of entertainment value.
