Captivating

Yes, "Tentacle 8" is perfectly titled. As I watched I felt drawn into the story and then bound increasingly tightly in it. If I didn't seek the thrill of not knowing and of danger, I wouldn't have liked this story's powerful hold! It's a spellbinding trap for those who love to be daring. I could sense how torn between hope and despair Ray was. In fact, I felt that right along with him because of Brett Rickaby's exquisite connection with his character. It was tough to watch the ruthless treatment of him and the not-knowing that kept him in a turmoil of doubt, especially because I could sense the vulnerability of his heart. Amy Motta maintained that keen edge through the story also as Tabitha. All characters were fascinating, as were the writhing arms of changing appearances in this very well-done film.

Good Story

Great story, a little slow at times. However good acting and the story content was captivating. It seems very believable. I was losing interest at one point, but the story reached out and grabbed me back in. If you like spy stories, and you like to speculate at what goes on in the I.C. (intelligence community) then this movie is for you. The main character- good. Supporting characters- good. Story-Good My rating is of an 8. Yes I know that is high, however based on being an independent movie and the material being covered with strong characters, I believe this is a fair rating for the ambition put into it.

Good acting, bad script

Tentacle 8 is every conspiracy theorist, spy geeks wet dream on steroids and while the acting is very good, some of the dialogue is abysmally pretentious and the whole convoluted story is preposterous to say it lightly. The basic outline is thus... past middle age NSA spy nerd gets dragged into a vast conspiracy unwittingly while knocking up a hot spy babe he knows for all of ten minutes, gets renditioned and then manages to 'turn the tables' because, and I quote, 'he has a moral compass that's in the 0.5% OF the 0.5% of everyone tested' for this mythical 'Tentacle 8" program that NOBODY is aware of... not even him and HE'S in it!! Btw that percentile essentially makes him 'one in a billion'.... gag me with a spoon. The movie tries desperately to make this entire intelligence community seem convoluted and entangled as all hell but the WAY they do it is by non-sensical dialogue that has no definitives and basically not explaining ANYTHING which is a crime in any movie because it just leaves the viewer confused, trying to fill in information that just doesn't exist. None of the characters have any back story or context except for the main guy and even his is minimal so trying to sort out where anybody stands is a chore unto itself and determining motivations is IMPOSSIBLE! I can't stress that one enough. The pace of the movie is maddeningly slow to boot, possibly to 'aid' the viewer in trying to make sense of this opaque mess... so much so I almost turned it off and about half way through it starts playing with the order of things which REALLY didn't help things. I can only suggest this movie to people who really like being kept in the dark and like to confuse lack of information with depth... otherwise, I'd suggest leaving this one to steam in it's own pile.
