“Release the Kraken!” Whether it’s the tentacle-bearded Davy Jones in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise or Irish actor Liam Neeson, those words generally come followed by a sea-dwelling behemoth with a thousand teeth.  Krakens/ sea monsters have become popular in recent cinema, but have been a part of human narratives for hundreds of years. Whether the basis for the kraken was the last of a race of dinosaurs or just a giant squid, seeing Hollywood’s computer-generated interpretations of ancient legend are always good for a solid cringe. Although a wide shot-type of monstrosity completely in charge of any situation, the kraken always carries out the plans of a master and never gets its own agenda.
