Deep Rising 1998

Deep Rising

Critics Consensus

Its fleeting glimpses of creature feature mayhem are certainly dumb fun, but Deep Rising cribs from far too many better movies to stand on its own.

Movie Info

A newly unveiled ocean liner, the Argonautica sets out on its first cruise, only to encounter dangers both on board and in the ocean depths. While the beautiful thief Trillian (Famke Janssen) attempts to steal riches from the boat's wealthy passengers, the ship encounters major problems, most notably a giant murderous sea creature with tentacles. Eventually, a boat captained by John Finnegan (Treat Williams) comes across the Argonautica, and everyone struggles to survive the monster.

    An embarrassing mess. Janssen and Williams have anti-chemistry. The more the script demands that they fall for each other, the less believable their interactions become.

    Monster mayhem which is a lot of fun. It was initially frowned upon during its release like most of sommers films. Yes it is an aliens clone but who really cares, at least it isn't a remake. The film takes the guys with guns and creates an intriguing concept. The cast is full of recognisable international stars and sure the script is a little light on background but at least they seem to be having fun. Treat Williams was quite good in a very rare lead role. Stephen sommers is a great story creator but he can't write dialogue. The lines are so badly written its delivered with cheese. The action is relentless and its good to see a monster movie that studios allowed a horror rating hire then the usual teen. Good if you are a horror buff but don't expect your friends to like the film as much as you

    Excellent monster mash and over the top riot of sea faring proportions which borrows from afew films but keep its tongue firmly in its cheek as a no bars hold B-movie. The way the plot unravels is much like 'Aliens' with a mish mash crew of cut throat mercs and civilians being surprised and taken down one by one by an unexplained sea beastie, the casting is unique and perfect for the posse of renegades who each have their own quirks and style which, again, does remind you of the classic marines from 'Aliens'. Its a very silly and obvious layout but Sommers doesn't try to hide this fact and goes all out with nice scares and some nasty gut churning makeup and cgi for the victims. The cgi does now look pretty dated and there is some really nasty blue screen effects but at the time this felt so good and really impressed, I saw the film on release at the cinema back in 1998 and I enjoyed then as I do now. Your typical popcorn flick with nothing to worry about in terms of depth, probably one of the best ensemble casts for awhile in a B-movie and a really terrific creature all add to a fun time. The text at the start gets you thinking about the deep for real and the ending is great stuff haha why no sequel??

    Slime from the endless abyss (this time with teeth, ouch!) arises from the depths and must be stopped! Who among our plucky tongue-in-mercenary-cheek cast will survive this Poseidon Adventure meets Predator marriage made in hell?!? Fun goo to step into.
