That infamous whale is bigger, badder and a whole lot stronger in this sci-fi reimagining of Herman Melville’s classic tale of the battle between man, sea and sea creature starring “Xena” alum Rene O’Connor as the (traditionally male) narrator. But the boat — now a high-tech submarine — is also bigger, and Capt. Ahab is as determined as ever to settle the score and take down the mighty sea mammal that maimed him.
Length 87 minutes

Moby Dick (2010) is another recent The Asylum release that, yes, is a modern retelling of that classic story including the Barry Bostwick as Captain Ahab. Oh so clever. But I will go on record as saying this is actually a pretty darn good flick… for The Asylum. More often misses than hits, this one is definitely a better watch than most.
