Nature’s Death Torpedoes, or Misunderstood Gentle Ocean Creature?
In this movie we’re going for the latter, as Richard Jaekel, only a scant 5 years away from an Oscar nomination, plays Sonny Stein, a former marine salvage worker in the Philippines, who is now, powered by a mystical amulet given to him by some random old dude, able to communicate telepathically with said sharks, give them names like Matilda and Sammy, and protect them from evil scientists, evil fishermen and evil morbidly obese night club owners.
Jacques Cousteau, he ain’t. Maybe slipping a $10 donation to Sea Shepherd or Greenpeace would have been better.
Let’s take a look at Richard Jaekel, Shark Whisperer, shall we?
