It's officially the best film ever made. (by Neonsamurai)
Deep Rising is one of the best films ever made, if not the best! That's right, I'm making a bold statement but it's true. Clearly many of you here will disagree, but when you've seen the evidence that I put forward I don't think you'll be able to argue:1 The Godfather: The Godfather was less believable than Deep Rising and also lacked such things as multi barrelled assault rifles, jet skis and huge torpedoes. Deep rising however, did not.2 Raging Bull: No half-digested/half alive bodies, no engine room full of bloody bones or cool looking harpoon guns. Deep Rising <more>
had all these things.3 Citizen Kane: A worthy try, but in the end Orson Welles decision to omit massive underwater squid monsters, left this film floundering. Deep Rising came up trumps in this department.4 Casablanca: Fails to deliver on every account. Most notably, no one gets pulled down a toilet. Again, Deep Rising excels.The sad thing is that if the Colour Purple had included a raid on a sinking cruise liner, infested with sub aqua monsters as part of the film, then it too would have climbed to the top of my favourite movie list. But as with most films the director took the easy way out and chose to ignore this very overlooked area of filmmaking. In my aquatic monster/cruise liner catastrophe marking system, Deep Rising gets a colossal 4 shrimps. But the rather lacking Godfather, gets only 3 angelfish and a haddock.
This is a GOOD movie. It does not deserve a 5.4 (by Duk)
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Treat Williams and Kevin J. O'Connor in particular are very good. It's a low budget genre flick, but acting is excellent across the board. O'Connor is great comic relief. The monster is clichéd, but cool. Quality and care went into this movie across the board.I definitely recommend this movie without reservation. I've seen it several times on cable as well as originally on DVD, and my opinion of it has held up.Wes Studi never bad in anything , Djimon Hounsou, and Anthony Heald the psychologist from Silence of the Lambs as bad guys and <more>
Anthony Heald are very competent as well.I just can't understand how this movie got only a 5.4 from users.
Underrated best monster horror scary action movie flick ever made! (by ivo-cobra8)
Deep Rising 1998 for me is one of the best underrated monster horror movie from the 90's!! I love this movie to death every time I see it, it takes my breath away and I wish there would be a sequel and explained what happened to characters. It is definitely one of the most underrated action horror flicks. It is one of my favorite best film from the Director Stephen Sommers before he made The Mummy. This film and The Mummy and The Mummy Returns are the only movies from Stephen Sommers that I love, the rest of his movies I don't watch! quality keeps you on the edge of your chair good <more>
scene for a film. It doesn't pretend to be anything other than what it is -- your standard creature action film. This is a really fun no brainer of a movie. It doesn't have a great story line, but the action and creature are great! So if you just want to watch a fun gory movie where there are good guys, bad guys, the pretty woman thrown in and a monster. This is perfect! This is the movie for people that just wanna watch a movie. Deep Rising is what you classify as great monster movie, with a story that's all too clear and characters that'll make you wonder what'd happen if they were in Aliens. The jokes don't stop, the action doesn't stop, and the editors did a great job on the cutting room floor. No fat, all meat... Or drink as it goes in this one. This film is genius. Great cast, Great story, Great SFX, Big budget. Laughs, Thrills .This movie has it all, yet no one has heard of it! If you like a fun, corny adventure movie .look no further! Treat Williams, Famke Janssen and Wes Studi are just great chemistry. I've probably watched this movie 10+ times over the years .like your best pair of slippers! Buckle up for edge-of-your seat excitement with the explosive hit Deep Rising, an unstoppable high seas action thriller that moves at full scream ahead! When a band of ruthless hijackers invade the world's most luxurious cruise ship, they're shocked to discover the passengers have mysteriously vanished! But that doesn't mean they are alone! Something terrifying is lurking just out of sight: a deadly force from the unexplored depths of the ocean that begins to snatch the horrified intruders one by one! Treat Willliams The Devil's Own and sexy Famke Janssen Goldeneye, Rounders lead a group of survivors who must overcome incredible odds in their breathtaking battle to escape the doomed ship alive! That is the basic plot about a cruise ship who gets hijacked by a sea monster who eats and drinks people and spits out the bones. A team of mercenaries are the only survivors on this ship and they have to fight for their own survival.It's Die Hard meets Alien meets Titanic!!!! I love this film to death it has my favorite actress in it Famke Janssen from GoldenEye 1995 my favorite James Bond 007 movie! Why would anyone thought that this movie suck? I don't get it! I didn't saw this movie about 10.years ago until just 2.days back and honestly this movie took my breath away. I never saw any monster movie eating people like that ever. Deep Rising was Stephen Sommers movie which he directed. And I thought the movie was one of the best action paced horror movie. I was surprised to see Famke Janssen in this movie she stared in James Bond 007 GoldenEye one of my best Bond movies as the main villain opposite of Sean Bean. First I thought the awesome women in this flick was Izabella Scorupco because she looked a like Izabella Scorupco from GoldenEye. But I was surprised to see Famke Janssen in this awesome flick from Stephen Sommers.This is the second time Trevor Goddard played an Australian, the last time I saw him played an Australian was in Baywatch Season 3 In Episode Fatal Exchange in 1993. I seriously miss this actor and it is a terrible and sad, that this awesome actor is no longer with us anymore. May he rest in peace 1962 - 2003 . This movie failed in the Box office but it was still a fun ride. I think this is Treat Williams's favorite film he ever made! I love it to death! For me this movie is a 10 not a 6 or 7 a perfect 10. This movie does not deserve to be bashed or hated I always love it. great film! as far as the "action-scify-horror" genre this one's up there with the best, and there's only 5 or 6 proper ones out there, so that says a lot!. the more I watch it the more I like it. Shame they stopped doing films like these with a proper budget I mean . I'm disappointed it never had a sequel though.Deep Rising is a 1998 American action horror film directed by Stephen Sommers and starring Treat Williams, Famke Janssen and Anthony Heald.

It's just a tad better than the first Mummy, and it wees on Van Helsing like an incontinent dog.When I first saw this movie, I had no idea what to expect. I was at the cinema one night, I'd just come out of a movie--can't remember which--and I saw the poster. The tagline, "Full Scream Ahead", seemed corny enough that it might be good. Then I noticed Famke Janssen was in it. Bonus. And it seemed like a good late-night B movie, to follow the one I'd just seen. I was there with a mate of mine, who was kind of indifferent. I twisted his arm, and he agreed.Two hours <more>
later, I walked out, grinning like an idiot. It's silly, cliché-heavy, and utterly predictable. This movie rocks.See, Sommers, and all the actors, KNOW that it's silly, cliché-heavy and predictable. In fact, THAT'S THE IDEA. It's also full of spot-on one-liners and gags, and the horror bits seem more intended to "gross-out" than to actually scare the bit where a half-digested member of Hanover's team bursts out of one of the monsters--still alive, despite half his head being missing--is not for the weak of stomach . Most thrillers and horror movies set out to keep you "on the edge of your seat", but with this one I was too busy falling out of it with laughter.Treat is...well...a TREAT as Finnegan, the rugged, all-American adventurer type. For a while I was disappointed that Bruce Campbell wasn't cast in the role, as it would have suited him perfectly. But I've since decided that Treat does a bang-up job, and deserves full praise. If he did more movies like this, I might become a fan.Kevin J. O'Connor is hilarious as the sidekick grease-monkey and performs all the better for not having to put on a stupid accent . He gets most of the best lines. Famke is great as always. Sexy, funny, and capable in the action scenes. Anthony Heald, as the villain, is hammy and over the top in a good way and Wes is...well, Wes. All the goons are fine, particularly Jason Flemyng and the late Trevor Goddard. It's nice to see a good mix of nationalities in there, and the playful in-fighting amongst them is a nice touch. Their assault rifles are cool, too. Funny though, I never noticed anyone reloading...The special effects are just bad enough to work in this context, without appearing TOO lame. A few years before this movie was made, they'd have actually been considered brilliant. But Sommers realises that sometimes it's best not to actually SHOW the monsters. They swim along under the knee-deep water, the walls of the corridors buckle and threaten to collapse, gratings fly out of the floor directly behind the running characters...very effective.The climax is about as far-fetched as it's possible to get. But it's done so well that, like all this movie's flaws, it doesn't matter.If you're easily scared, this'll do the job. If you like tongue-in-cheek, B-grade action flicks, this is one to see. If you like movies that force you to think, make you change your outlook on life, and move you to tears...yeah, you should REALLY watch this. TO SEE WHAT YOU'RE MISSING OUT ON!
There are times when nothing satisfies like a good ol' B-movie action-adventure, not meant to be deep or serious, just good excitement and fun. Yet truly excellent B-movies are not easily come by. This director's own "Scorpion King", in fact, is a textbook example of how the formula can fail: too Hollywoodized, too predictable, too tame, and not funny enough. But before he Hollywoodized himself in Mummyland, this director and writer! gave us the masterful "Deep Rising." B-movie fans know who they are and what they want, and they will not be disappointed here. I <more>
rank "Deep Rising" up there with the best of John Carpenter and Sam Raimi. 9/10
Pure entertainment for the monster fan (by ichobodcrane)
I rented this recently and loved every bit of it from it's tongue in cheek extra clichéd action types to it's fabulously over the top gore. You can see here, exactly where Stephen Sommers is coming from and where he will go. The Mummy had exactly the same style and sense of humour. Treat Williams is fantastic in this. This is one under rated actor. Why is he not in more great flicks? His comedy is superb and he looks the action hero. Remember Things to do in Denver. Anyone who likes a good old monster movie should sit back and pamper themselves with this cracking good yarn.
Cheesy, but likable, popcorn flick... (by JWM-2)
Deep Rising is a guilty pleasure of mine. It's one of those films I rented on a whim and and simply fell in love with.Is it a great film? No.Does it have a great script? Not really, and it's downright silly in parts.Does it have great acting? Eh, there's been better...But the effects are good, the characters are likable, the creature is neat, and somehow it all comes comes together to make an enjoyable B schlock horror/comedy that, in my case anyway, leaves me with a big smile on my face.Oh and as an added bonus, Famke Janssen is simply lovely in this film. Rent it on a rainy day <more>
Ever since I saw 'The Mummy',I have become a die-hard fan of Stephen Sommers,and in this movie he once again proves himself to be a master of the genre of sci-fi action adventure.Treat Williams plays a captain of a small vessel which is hired by a gang of mercenaries to transport them to an undisclosed location.Little does Williams know that the gang intends to board a huge an understatement,actually,this ship is gigantic ! luxury liner called the Argonautica and hold its crew to ransom.The bloodcurdling surprise comes when they reach the ship and discover that no one is alive,save <more>
the beautiful Trillian,played by Famke Janssen.Things become even more scary as they discover dozens of half-eaten bodies,and a couple of half-dead ones.However,everything gets out of control when the giant octopus,the monster responsible for devouring all the passengers and crew of the Argonautica,finally appears,unleashing hell upon the new members on board.The octopus is unquestionably the biggest I have seen in a sci-fi movie,and the special effects guys have done perhaps too good a job with the semi-alive,half eaten survivors.That actually makes this a regular horror film,and certainly not the one you'd conveniently watch over dinner .The plot will undoubtedly draw comparisons with " Anaconda".But the difference here is that we get to see a lot of the bad guys becoming octopus lunch,instead of the pitiful deaths of innocent people in ' Anaconda'.As for the cast,Treat Williams seems ill at ease playing his role,while Famke Jansen as the jewel thief Trillian couldn't be more ravishing.Kevin J.O'Connor as Williams' faithful sidekick provides the only comic relief to an otherwise humorless script,so uncharacteristic of Sommers.This is first class sci-fi fare from start to finish.
No Need To Think Just Sit Back And Enjoy This Highly Entertaining Little Film! (by callanvass)
No need to think just sit back and enjoy this highly entertaining film!. Yes It's dumb, but damn it entertained the hell out of me!. The characters were pretty cool and the monster effects were great, and it wasn't overloaded with CGI!. Don't bother in trying to think while watching this movie, because your likely to get a severe headache, that being said however, i had tons of fun with this movie, and found it to be highly entertaining!.The Direction is good. Stephen Sommers, does a pretty good job here, keeping the pace fast and furious, all the way, with some really neat camera <more>
work, awesome camera angles, great lighting, and overall doing a solid job!. There is LOTS of gore. We get, a gory stitching of a wound, TONS and TONS of blood Splahes, Axe in the head, a few bloody gunshot wounds, HUNDREDS and HUNDREDS of extremely gory corpses, lots of severed body parts, TONS of gooey gore, severed arm, TONS of creature gore, and more!. The Acting is a little cheesy at times, but for the most part very good. Treat Williams is awesome here,he is extremely likable, had good chemistry with Famke Janssen,was perfect for the lead and kicked that ass!. Famke Janssen, is STUNNINGLY GORGEOUS!, and did very well here, she also kicks that ass, and looked damn sexy doing it!, plus her character is likable. Kevin J. O'Connor, is quite amusing here, i liked his character quite a bit, and glad he survived. Anthony Heald, is very good as the weasel, and did his part well. Wes Studi, was pretty cool, and was a bad ass!. Overall, i highly recommend this, highly enjoyable little flick! ***1/2 out of 5,
