THE TRENCH is pure formula. A Godzilla with a dorsal fin is menacing the North Pacific looking for its next meal. The hero is out to save humanity from this terror. And an evil scientist is holding a damsel in distress captive under seven miles of ocean. If reader Bruce Reizen were at the very top of his game, he could do little to improve THE TRENCH. But Reizen is spotty at best. Dialogue and characterizations are strong, but narrative sections lack conviction and assurance. All in all THE TRENCH might make a credible abridgment.
