On board a deep-sea mining vessel, the crew, Captain Phillip Laidlaw, (Taurean Blacque) Joyce Collins, (Nancy Everhard) McBride, (Greg Evigan) Snyder, (Miguel Ferrer) Scarpelli, (Nia Peeples) James Richardson, (Matt McCoy) Dr. Diane Norris, (Cindy Pickett) Dr. John Van Gelder, (Marius Weyers) and Burciaga, (Elya Baskin) are under pressure to get a secret Navy project operational. Upon getting the project started, a series of accidents and deaths begin plaguing the site, and their equipment becomes ruined. The distress is eventually discovered to be a giant sea creature, who proceeds to attack the station and are forced to ban together to fight off the voracious creature.
The Good News: A decent creature feature, this one wasn't half bad. The set-up for the attacks is nice, giving some nice sequences that shows all is not that right. The main one is the first attack on the submarine. The repeated shots of the creature's eye-view ramming the ship are excellent suspense-builders. The dive into the cave is effectively eerie, giving off some nice chills, and the creature's attacks late in the film are also pretty creepy. The look for the creature isn't that bad and makes an interesting design. As a giant mollusk-type creature, it's certainly imposing, especially when compared with the damage it causes at the end. There is a general sense of being shut off from the upper areas that's nicely captured in here, and it does it well. Even though it is a little slow at times, it's never boring and keeps the attention throughout. It's a pretty decent film.
The Bad News: There's still a few problems overall with the film. It takes awhile to get anyway, and then the result isn't all that spectacular when it happens. The first half is very slow to get started, as it concentrates mostly on the day-to-day systems of the station. It's a real struggle to sit through it at time. The monster itself is a big problem. When it's finally unleashed late in the film, most of the damage and explosions come from the various characters doing something to try and destroy it or escape the base. Hardly anything is actually done by the creature. There's only a few deaths that's actually done on-screen by the creature, and most of the deaths don't even have any impact from the creature. The creature could have been removed from the film completely and there would be little impact on the story. It manages to change size, shape, intelligence and strength whenever it likes to suit the plot too. That in itself is a little confusing, as it's not entirely logical and can easily be seen as such.
The Final Verdict: A decent creature feature fare, this is pretty forgettable but still has some great moments here and there to make it a watchable one. Give it a shot if you like the underwater monster films, but don't be too surprised if there's a lot of eye-rolling or bored moments.
Rated R: Graphic Language and Violence It says a lot about the lack of imagination that when one studio comes up with an idea for a production other studios feel the need to join . If you have a film about a volcano for example there will be another film about a volcano . In 1989 Hollywood studios went one better and brought out three films with an identical premise of a deep sea research station making alien contact: LEVIATHAN , THE ABYSS and DEEPSTAR SIX . None of them did very well at the box office which says one thing - if you're going to play follow my leader at least follow a winner
Having a film featuring aliens in inner space is no different from having a film featuring aliens in outer space so right away you're think of pulp B movie and unlike THE ABYSS this movie does try and stay true to its B movie roots , even the title DEEPSTAR SIX offers up connotations of sci-fi B movie horror It's strange watching how the storyline is structured . It's a very mechanical three act play but for some bizarre reason a film featuring the ocean as the backdrop lacks a hook . No not a fishing hook stupid a dramatic hook to pull the audience in . The first 30 minutes is composed of a group of marine biologists talking techno-babble as in
Character A : Technical words , technical words ,technical words
Character B : More technical words , technical words
Character C : Even more technical words , technical words
You can see what the director and screenwriter are trying to do , they're trying to convince the audience that these characters are scientists who exist in the real world and they succeed to a large degree but you're senseless and find yourself uncaring towards the characters . When a hot latina chick does a workout and gets all sweaty you may enjoy this scene then start fearing it might be the best scene in the movie
After the first act the second becomes a disaster type movie where the research station will set off its nuclear reactor in the type of plot you've a million times and you're left wondering if DEEPSTAR SIX is a marketing scam not featuring a monster at all . Thankfully we do eventually get a big mouthed monster who chews up the cast but this doesn't happen until the one hour mark
By no means a terrible film DEEPSTAR SIX will be a disappointment for those people watching it expecting to see brainless thrills and spills . As I said it feels like three films stuck together , a talkative scientific drama which turns in to a disaster flick and ends as a sci-fi horror B movie and one wonders why it just didn't hit the ground running as a more straight forward horror
