        Lord Doom, evil master of Proyas, the Dark Planet, sends Kraa the Sea Monster to Earth as part of his plan to dominate the galaxy. To keep the meddling hands of the Planet Patrol out of his scheme, he incapacitates their nearby space station. Fortunately, the alien agent Mogyar is on hand to land on Earth to stop the giant sea-beast. Accidentally landing in New Jersey rather than Italy (where scientists could have helped Mogyar build a weapon to stop Kraa), Mogyar must overcome his stereotypical Italian accent and strange appearance in order to ally with nearby humans to save the day.

Kraa The Sea Monster looks like it might be a fun B-movie: it's got a giant monster, an evil ruler, a team of space police, and an alien hero shaped like a lunch box that speaks with an Italian accent.

Except it doesn't really add up to much. I thought this was slightly less entertaining than an episode of Power Rangers, or any variation of an after-school adventure show.

The evil ruler sends Kraa to earth to destroy mankind. The space police try to stop the evil ruler, but their ship is low on power. The Italian alien crash lands in a diner and a customer and a waitress hear his story and get involved. A secret government agency is out to capture the alien that is the size of a backpack, but doesn't seem to be doing anything about the giant monster ripping apart buildings. Despite the government interference, the civilians and the galactic patrol blast Kraa with a laser that destroys him.

Nothing about this movie was any more interesting to watch than this plot summary I've just typed. Everything just kind of happens without the viewer really feeling anything about it. This movie is cheaply made, poorly written, and is full of silly, cartoonish characters. All that I can forgive. But it makes the unforgivable mistake of being boring.

I give it a 2 instead of 1 because I kind of liked the way Kraa looked. However, he moved so slow, even he wasn't fun to watch.
