Wow! THE RIG. Just look at the cover and the story writes itself. Brilliant, I thought; I love this sort of crap, was this film made especially for me.

Some oil-riggers who think they're the ones in ARMAGEDDON get trapped on a [surprise!] oil rig. Drilling for [surprise!] oil, they disturb a nasty creature-feature. Someone goes missing, the creature starts [surprise!] killing them off. There's lots of mumbling then it's finished!

Surprise! I hated it.

I didn't hate it for its predictable plot, or its slow start. I don't hate it for its ripping-off of many previous monster flicks, or for its dodgy acting by the extended family of the director. I didn't hate it because the DVD cover indicates a huge sea-monster type beast, and all we get is an underfed-bloke in a CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON-type costume jumping up and pirouetting across the screen in the dark. I didn't hate it for its poorly-concieved multi-tiered ending. I hated it because any enjoyment I may have got from an under-par B-movie [which I love], was sucked away like a whirlpool by the fact that half the time I couldn't hear what the hell was bloody going on.

Acting means acting; why do they mumble their lines? Why bother having any character development at all when all the dialogue might as well be delivered by the flowerpot men. Often, films have subtitles for the hard of hearing. Here we required Subtitles for the Hard Of Speaking! I watch and enjoy loads of micro-budget horror and sf [and really applaud low-budget film-making] but I always believe there are two cardinal rules for film-makers; Don't make it boring, and don't make it sound like its been filmed underwater.

If you have super Spiderman hearing skills, perhaps add another star if you like this sort of thing. Otherwise read "NICOR!", a trashy 80's so-so horror novel by Peter Tremayne that is eerily similar to this. It's equally not amazing, but at least you can hear all the dialogue!

First of i just wanna say that i have a weakness for these kind of movies. A group of people stranded in an isolated area and who are being killed of one by one. I love Carpenters The Thing and the remake/ prequal was suprisingly good to.

Now this movie after i had watched the trailer, i thought this could be good. No it wasn't. This was utter garbage. Bad acting, bad special effects, bad script, actually horrible script.

I'm gonna keep it short and just say: check out Proteus with Craig Fairbrass instead. Not a great movie but still pretty good (a masterpiece compared to this crap).

This film is just awful. I was sucked in by the DVD cover art work of a huge monster below an oil rig; but in fact the actual monster in the film is a man in a rubbish monster suit, so beware.
Why did the film makers behind this film even bother, oh I know why to take money off of idiots like me lol

I have to agree with the review by "Gary". This film doesn't at all try to hide what it is, and what it will contain. The plot is thin because this sub-genre of films (monster movies) very rarely try to be cerebral. These are monster movies where a bunch of people - strangely confined - are knocked off one by one.

As such, The Rig delivers. It's not profound, it's not deep, and there are times when you wish they'd done things better. Just like 90% of all horror movies out there.

Why three stars? Well - it's not a five-star movie, for sure. Let's not go over the top. It doesn't do anything to raise itself above other films of this type. Some of the acting was weak, the music is extremely forgettable. But don't read my three-stars as in any way panning the film, because I'm not. I'm simply acknowledging the film for what it is. It's good - nothing more, nothing less.

Okay, admittedly the special effects aren't great, okay admittedly the plot points are slightly predictable but ... So What!?!

If you are going to watch a film called 'The Rig' - what do you expect? This is predictably a film where people get stranded on (guess what ...) an oil rig, unable to get off and go home, in the middle of nowhere and lo and below - something bad happens and they are trapped!!

For anyone who is going to criticise this film for its predictability ... don't watch it! This 'jeopardy'/situation or whatever it is called is as old as film - if Agatha Christie can get away with it for 200 odd books then surely the whole 'if it 'aint broke don't fix it' argument comes in??

The Rig is good, old school, low budget horror. You may know the outcome but you don't know the path the characters have to take to get there.

Definitely worth a watch if you are not expecting the next big thing. Harmless and enjoyable with a touch of 'don't go in there' fright ...

Right down to the use of the name 'Weyland'. You know the story - drill the ocean floor, something nasty is uncovered, wild storm, no communication with the mainland and rig workers getting picked off one by one. But done on the ultra-cheap and with little regard to character development so you don't really know the people or care too much when they are despatched. Probably wisely, the creatures get very little airtime. The audio on this disk is extraordinarily busy and is always getting in the way of the actors' voices so sometimes it's very difficult to hear what they are saying. And those parts of the movie that would be better of in the quiet or just with the storm in the background get completely overwhelmed by music. The story is OK but shot in such a way that reminded me of watching a daytime soap opera rather than a horror film... And Amazon says the disk is Region 2 locked but there is nothing to say this on the box and I had no issues playing it in a Region 4 player.
