If you like some of the quirky, anti-hero action/adventure films of the 1980's (e.g. "Indiana Jones", "Big Trouble in Little China", "Remo Williams", "Romancing the Stone", etc.), you'll at the very least LIKE this movie. You may even, as I do, find that you LOVE it and can't do without it.If, on the other hand, you hate B-Movies, sea monsters that "drink you", goofy sidekicks, exploding speed boats, ensemble casts, killer toilets, elevators which can be operated remotely by shotgun, vague references to "the Posideon Adventure", international mercenaries, flying surf boards, torpedoes, champagne, the inevitable slower-than-human-running-speed hollywood explosions, and a little high-quality gore; do not see this movie.Be warned, if you choose to not watch it, or refuse to watch it regularly, you will doubtlessly grow tired and sad early in life, gain ten pounds over Christmas, and the lack of "Deep Rising" will leave you more susceptible to disease and infection. You will lose some hair in the places you want it, and gain hair where you least expect it. You will forget the taste of fresh peaches and find yourself living in Milwaukee.
Director: Stephen SommersCast: Treat Williams, Famke Janssen, Kevin J. O'Connor, Anthony Heald, Wes Studi.Running Time: 106 minutes.Rated R for violence, gore, and language.A deep-sea crew coincidentally stumbles upon an abandoned underwater vessel and is then ripped from limb to limb by a huge, flesh-eating monster. Sound familiar? The original "Alien" formula has been beaten to death for over twenty-five years, but directors such as Stephen Sommers and screenwriters like...Stephen Sommers (hmmm...) seem to believe that something new can come from the same old outdated, overused, and underperformed formula. Treat Williams stars as the head of a group of modern day, underwater pirates who accidentally lurch upon a vacant luxury liner in the South Seas while searching for some goods to steal. What they find instead is much more than what they bargained for.The sensual Famke Jannsen stars as a thief and con artist also aboard the ship, but even her flare cannot save "Deep Rising" from sinking. Director/writer Sommers attempts to add some humor (especially with the highly talented Williams), but this attempt falls overboard. The special effects are only halfway believable, the acting is atrocious, and the script is laughable, all the while using every clichÃ© in the book. A complete waste of nearly two hours. If you're a huge fan of fake digital monsters, over-the-hill action stars who think they are funny, and huge explosions--check out "Deep Rising", but also check into a mental institution.
Well I bet that got your attention....Sometimes a movie is good just because its fun to watch and DEEP RISING is one of those rare gems. Not every movie has to be "better and newer" just to be fun. Call this a 50's B movie for gen X (did I actualy say that???)
I had one heck of a lot of fun watching Deep Rising. It was just the typeof film that didn't take itself too seriously and never tried to be anythingmore than it was. After seeing this, I'm extremely excited to see StephenSommers's The Mummy, the other ILM film of Summer '99.
Treat Williams and company are stuck on board an oceanliner streaming with sea creatures that hunt by sound vibrations. Yes, it's Tremors on water! A deft mixture of action, horror, and comedy, this is ideal B-movie entertainment thanks to some fun performances (Williams and Kevin J. O'Connor) and very good special effects and production values. Like Event Horizon, this one's very underrated.
When I went to go see this in the theaters I thought it was one of the coolest movies I had ever seen.Treat Williams is great and I love his catch phrase. Treat and the black dude were my favorite characters. If you like to watch movies not just because they are oscar caliber but just to have fun, this is the movie.
Deep Rising is a movie which I will call a classic .It's simple plot and character's allow the viewer to sit back and getinvolved in it , without having to think too much .The movie does however provide character's that are easily liked anddisliked and also that "essential" game we all like to play ....." Guesswho's going to die " .Although sometimes the effect's of the film do look computerised , itstillprovides a visual blend of just what we need to see .I did not find myself questioning the plot or asking that old question..."why ? " . I felt the film explained itself and that the overall movie wasan enjoyment to see .The acting was good and in my opinion this movie should be seen by anyonewho enjoy's the horror/sci fi genre .
The movie is rather enjoyable in both graphics and sound effect, but the music is so noticeably poor, which make me just to not buy it!
Truly awful monster flick. Laughable one liners: "They're some kinda mutantsea monsters!" which, as we all know, are much worse than plain ordinary seamonsters. Sue the makers for wasting your time.
...but things get out of hand in the second half due to an impossibleset of coincidences. Treat Williams and his band of hi- tech raidersboard a luxury yacht and dump a virus into its operating system tobypass the vault control. So far so good. Except the ship is infestedwith unbelievably huge and lethal sea creatures and by knocking out theship's security protocols the raiders just let them loose all over theship. Oops. If this all seems like an overly contrived way to flip the movie into asalty creature feature, it is. The plot contrivances by that point killone's suspension of disbelief - there is just too much to disbelieve.What's more the second half of the movie is one long generic run-away-from-the-monster chase sequence already familiar from the Aliensseries, not to mention Deep Blue Sea, Leviathan, Deep Star Six andevery other watery creature feature of the last thirty years. I foundmyself bored during what should have been the biggest action payoff ofthe movie.
This movie is a geat action movie, that contains almost it all ( no sex), but Framke looks a lot like Sandra B. in this movie, and I don't believe that it's a coincidense, because her role is some what like SB in speed and speed 2, The "alien" this time looks like the tentacle of a octopussy, there's a lot of action. At first you think of them as bad guys, but suddently they're the good ones fighting for their lifes.. A movie you have to see more than once.......!!!!
I'm as much of a fan of action movies as the next person, but the acting inthis movie (including Treat Williams) was so wooden, it was pathetic. Thespecial effects were interesting; however, how many more times am I going tosee a modified multi-jawed monster ala "Alien"?
The cheese oozes of this movie. But what I like about this movie thatdespite the silly and ridiculous premise the viewer still can getcaught in the tense situations created on screen. The cast does anexcellent job in convincing the audience that there is a real threatout there and at the same time also tell you that you shouldn't takethings so seriously.Treat Williams is a master in doing that. His looseacting is one of the main reasons that this movie works. "Deep Rising"is fast paced and offers non stop action. It doesn't give you much timeto think about how silly certain events are. In stead you are rewardedwith hard hitting action and just the right amount of comedy and goreto keep watching. I had no idea that Stephen Sommers directed thisotherwise I would have watched this much sooner. Better late thannever. Pure fun and entertainment!
This was just one of those movies you have to suspend your deep thoughts andjust Go With It. I was surprised that I enjoyed this as much as I did. Ididn't have high expectations. It had no pretentions and was clearly campyon purpose. I thought it was better than several of the Aliens series andall of the Scream ripoffs. Pretty good humor too. Can't wait to see whatthey have in mind for the sequel.
Not as deep in human characters or high level suspense like Aliens(1986),Deep Rising(1998) is still a fun fun to watch will some very good specialeffects. Much better then Virus(1999) or Supernova(2000). The action isfast paced and the creatures are well designed by the special effects team. Very good B movie that manages to entertain and scare inspots.The dialogue may be lame and the acting not very good, but what saves themovie is its technical aspects. Deep Rising(1998) features a goofyperformance by Treat Williams as John Finnegan. The direction is adequate. Famke Janssen turns in an erotic performance as Trillian St.James.
The fact that it doesn't take itself seriously once is its' saving grace.With full-on suspension of disbelief engaged, it is a good monster comfortmovie on a dark wet boat. Stephen Sommers is on his way to becoming amaster of the popcorn movie. What is a popcorn movie? It's a movie thathas enough cheap but effective scares in it to spook your date out fromunder the blanket, sending popcorn everywhere and then you get to spankherfor making a mess. Spot on, Mr. Sommers! When we want characterdevelopment, we'll go see Merchant/Ivory. In between I'll take Kevin J.O'Connor playing comic relief to the one-line stylings of Treat WilliamsandB. Fraser. Author! Author!
never can stop bragging about this movie. what a damn good movie! has one of the coolest creatures of all time in a movie in my opinion too. great acting and one of the most entertaining films of all time. one of my fav.if you havn't seen this one then your definitely missing out!
This movie has everything, action, romance(a little anyway),comedy, suspence, horror. The SFX are quite good and the movie moves along at a good pace, there is never a boring moment. The plot is very good for this type of movie and the ending...well i'll just let you find that out. This is a must see.
Such a comfortable old friend this movie - love it! Entertainment with acapital E! Stephen Sommers was hired to direct a "B" grade monster moviewith limited funds, limited actors and limited fx and to keep itentertaining! Well, I'm here to tell you he most certainly succeeded. Inthegrand scale of things this flick was never going to matter, make much moneyor pull too many votes at the Academy Awards but I tell you what, its ashonest as the day is long! Unpretentious, undemanding but heaps of fun asTreat Williams squares off against a pathetically organised gang ofboat-nappers, hired by the owner to sink his own cruise ship purely for theInsurance payout!Gorgeous Famke Janssen with whom I have wanted to have children sinceGOLDENEYE, plays the femme fatale in slinky red...Sorry, I'm going to haveto pause here mid-review for a few minutes while I have a cold shower! She,Finnegan and his best friend Joey (O'Connor) must neutralise not only theterrorists but the somewhat awesome sea creature that has disposed of mosteverybody in gruesome fashion on board the ARGONAUTICA.What makes this film so watchable, quite apart from Ms Janssen's cleavage,is the repartee, terrific characterisations and remarkably good CGI effectson show. This is not a film to critically analyse simply to enjoy...and ifyou can't do that, you have serious issues to deal with!A total "B" grader that makes no attempt to disguise its pedigree. Iconsider it to be a winner on all levels. Great ending too! Devotees ofcourse will fully understand the meaning of my two-wordsummary!
This one is obviously some "Die Hard"-meet-"Titanic"-Meet-"whatever",but despite its shortcomings, it is good, unpretentious fun.Mainly because the characters are well drown and almostbelievable, including a guy who looks much like the "RoadWarrior" helicopter pilot, and the "bad guys" looks straight outof a Spaghetti western. The final appearance of the monstermight makes you yell "count the pixels !", but is a goodsurprise, as well as the final joke.
