Leviathan, a sci-fi thriller directed by George Pan Cosmatos, is the story of a group of scientists who discover a sunken Russian submarine which contains a monster that is the product of a genetic experiment. This film, a hybrid of both The Abyss and Alien, has a decent cast, including Peter Weller as Beck, the lead oceanographer. Working with a good budget, action director Cosmatos, should have been able to put together better action sequences and a more frightening monster, but he gives this

The latter half of the film is one long feeding frenzy, guided by a familiar horror-film principle: survival of the best-looking.
Leviathan is intermittently interesting, but it's a bad sign that the movie starts losing its punch when the monster shows up.
It's almost impossible to discuss Leviathan without making a reference (or three) to James Cameron's far, far superior Aliens...
Big, dumb monster movie.
A "just say no" (or "nyet") PSA disguised as a thriller.
Forgettable and predictable, but with a good cast and some fun special effects.
Dismal knock-off of THE ABYSS, but better than DEEP STAR SIX.
Okay effects, good performances, and just a little more than the FDA- recommended daily minimum allowance of mindless entertainment and chills.
Cheesy underwater monster movie that, for some reason, I have a perverse enjoyment of.
There are some interesting psychological overtones here that have to do with genetic research, but they are never explored.
