Dalle profondità del Mare Cinese meridionale affiorano alcune orribili creature che cominciano ad attaccare i passeggeri di una lussuosa nave da crociera. Ben presto la nave diventa una camera degli orrori galleggiante. In corsa verso la nave da crociera c'è la Saipan, capitanata dall'ingegnoso mercenario John Finnegan, insieme al meccanico e al comandante in seconda. Quando arrivano, saltano a bordo e scoprono che qualcosa di terribile ha attaccato la nave. Il sangue scorre dappertutto. Tra i superstiti ci sono il comandante, l'armatore Canton e Trillian, ladra di gioielli. Finnegan e il suo equipaggio si trovano davanti il compito di dover respingere le creature mortali, ma insieme scoprono che sotto c'è anche una sporca operazione commerciale, secondo la quale l'armatore ha interesse a far affondare la nave per incassare il premio dell'assicurazione. Superati tremendi pericoli, Finnegan spara nell'occhio del mostro, poi lui e Trillian lasciano la nave sulle moto ad acqua. La nave esplode, mentre i due approdano su un isola. Da lontano si sente un rumore profondo. Forse un altro mostro è in arrivo sull'isola?

This was never meant to be a film that would tick all the boxes for an Oscar nomination, it wasn't supposed to be at the top of the list of nominations for an academy award. It was meant to be a fun, action packed thrill ride that will entertain and provide a good way to spend a couple of hours in front of the TV.
The story follows Treat Williams (as wooden as ever) who is giving some mercenaries a lift, what he doesn't know is that he's taking them to a luxury cruise liner that thye are going to board, rob and then blow up. But things take a nasty turn as from the depths of the ocean a monster rises and infests the ship, killing almost every single passenger (in a very gruesome manner) and causing the mercenaries and Williams a lot of trouble once they get on board. No sooner than they do board than one by one they get picked off by the hungry tentacles. The CGI is decent, not ground breaking, but acceptable enough for a film of this age and budget, the acting is decidedly hammy, though Famke Janseen is good as the thief who survives by being locked in a fridge and who ends up accompanying Treat on their journey through the ship.
Stephen Sommers is an adept director, having helmed such films as The Mummy 1 and later its sequel as well as the entertaining Van Helsing. As i said before it will never win any awards but it does offer up some thrills, spills and action and, for those of us who don't want to watch a film that makes us so bored we end up staring out the window, its perfect.
The special features are rubbish, but i doubt that anyone will be dedicated enough to this film to really be bothered how it was made.
Overall it is worthy of a three star rating for offering mindless fun with unique monsters and a fast pace.

In 1998 before Stephen Sommers had his world -wide hit with his re-make of "The Mummy" he wrote and directed this action horror thriller set in the South China seas, where a gang of criminals hire a ship's captain his crew and boat to take them to a certain point in the ocean, little does the captain know they intend to meet a luxury liner called "Argoautica" and unknown to him they going to rob the vessel but by the time they get there something has beaten them to it, the ship has become a floating house of horrors where the surviving passengers and crew are scared to move as whatever came aboard hasn't left.

The captain of the boat is played by Treat Williams (The Devil's own) a passenger on the liner is played by Famke Janssen (Goldeneye) a couple of the criminals are played by Djimon Hounsou (Amstad) and Jason Flemyng (Lock stock and 2 smoking barrels)

This film has some genuine jump out of your seat moments and some excellent surround sound effects and the director borrows from various films such as "Jaws" and "The African Queen" a great movie to curl up on the couch with the partner of your choice and some popcorn, disengage your brain and let the film wash over you.

Format: DVD
A gang of modern day pirates board a luxurious ocean liner intent on looting it of everything. But once on board the liner appears to be deserted, all traces of human life has vanished. It would seem some strange sea creatures have run amok and the pirates themselves are next on the menu!

Deep Rising doesn't have any delusions about what it wants to be, it was marketed as a raging B movie man versus beast gun fest, and that is exactly what it is, with tongue firmly in its cheek. When the tag line reads "Full Scream Ahead" then you get the impression it's not a film to be remotely taken seriously. Written and directed by Stephen Sommers (The Mummy), Deep Rising is a blend of Alien, Poseidon Adventure and Under Siege, all built around the Ten Little Indians structure. Blood spurts and quips are dealt, and the film isn't found wanting in the good old "it's behind you" department. The cast give it the full gusto histrionics, Treat Williams, the sumptuous Famke Jansen (holding her own surrounded by hundreds of pounds of testosterone), Anthony Heald, Kevin J O'Connor, Wes Studi, Djimon Hounsou and, erm, Jason Flemyng star.

It's a mini riot out at sea, great great fun. 7/10

A super sized liner in a raging sea, beset by pirates and something else...

This starts off as a so-so modern gangster film, but the tension is quickly and expertly ratcheted up as it becomes clear that the vessel is under siege from something else, something malevolent and quite ugly.

The cast, headed up by Treat Williams, get right into the spirit of things, and seem to refuse to take it too seriously. The special effects and direction, from a pre-Mummy Steven Sommers, are pretty good, and pave the way for his big success in the Mummy. This is an enjoyable film, perfect for a DVD night with a beer and a few friends. Shakespeare it ain't, good fun it is!

Okay, I’m giving ‘Deep Rising’ top marks. Why? You ask. Does that mean that I’m saying that Deep Rising (a film about a monster attacking a cruise liner) is as good as such cinematic greats such as ‘The Godfather’ and ‘The Empire Strikes Back?’ No, I’m not. However, Deep Rising shouldn’t be viewed along films like that. It deserves its own league – possibly one filled with B-movies.

And there it is truly a prince among men.

Like I say... a monster attacks a cruise liner. It kills people. There’s not an awful lot more I can say about the plot. It’s hardly original and has been done a thousand times in a thousand different settings with only slight variations on the overall premise. The beauty of Deep Rising is that everything just – somehow – works. Yes, most of the characters are stereotypes and have little depth, let alone character development, yet they’re still different from each other enough for us to root for and be just a little sad when they’re finally gobbled up and reduced to bloody skeletons.

Deep Rising is never dark and serious. It seems like it knows it’s stupid, but the in the good kind of way. I know the monster looks a little ‘CGI’ after all those years, but it’s still pretty impressive, even now.

So, if you like your ‘monster-munching’ movies a little one the tongue-in-cheek side and loaded with cheese, then you should definitely like this. It’s the ultimate popcorn movie where you don’t need to use any brainpower to understand it. Just sit back and enjoy the ride (and don’t ask why, no matter how wet Famke Janssen’s top gets, it never becomes see-through).
