Movie Reviews

Fun movie but so so DVD
Mian Sukiman | Jakarta Indonesia | 05/21/2001

"Deep Star Six is a fun monster movie. I am really surprised that it got a DVD release. Too bad the DVD is not up to the high standard. Full screen only, no subtitling option, no Dolby 5.1 but the picture quality is OK better than the old image entertainment LD. The story is about an underwater research facility attacked by a giant sea monster. Nothing special about the story and the special effects also not very good but is has enough suspence for this genre. Worth a look."

"1989 was the year of deep sea movies (THE ABYSS, LEVIATHON to name a couple). DEEP STAR SIX reached the theaters first. A completely forgettable ALIEN(by the sea) ripoff with a notable performance by Miguel Ferrer as Snyder. When this reviewer first saw this film with a bunch of drinking buddies,we started calling the'Snyder'(Ferrer) character 'Gilligan' (as in GILLIGAN'S ISLAND) because the character kept on screwing everything up. The film is unintentionally made humorous because of Ferrer's character (along with the ineptitude of the rest of the characters and the rubber suited sea monster) so the film has some merits. A deep sea missile base with a bunch of engineers and technicians disturb an ocean monster out of its hibernation. Perhaps the creature is starving from its long sleep. The rest of the premise is the garden variety plot as each character is oft by the monster one by one (some of the killings are a bit gruesome). Eventually one or two members will outsmart the monster and find a way to kill it. Not much here except for some interesting casting of actors playing out of type (i.e. Greg Evigan and Nia Peeples), a couple of intense scenes, decent set designs, and the films' non-deliberate humor."

"ok yes i know,it's a monster movie without a monster(well we see very little of it),it's really more an action movie underwater(the first of three that year,and the least),in five mins. you already can see who will live and who won't,and most f/x shots of the outside are so dark you can't see anything,it's all this and more, but ,but....i still like it!!!
if you are in the mood for it it can be fun."

"Director: Sean S. Cunningham
Cast: Taurean Blacque, Nancy Everhard, Greg Evigan, Miguel Ferrer, Matt McCoy, Nia Peeples, Cindy Pickett, Maruius Weyers.
Running Time: 103 minutes.
Rated R for violence, gore, and language."Deepstar Six" is an excellent example of how the 1979 classic "Alien" was a mistake in some ways--not because it was a poor film or that it was not well-made--but it set the standard so high for creature-features that anything that does not deliver such suspense, terror, and thrills is seen as a disappointment. This 1988 rehash is the same formula ad nausea and does not provide many scares or believable characters.Far below the surface of the unforgiving sea, the crew of the Deepstar Six submarine are explorers in a world of darkness and unimaginable pressure. All they want is to get home safely and see their families. Their mission is to establish a top secret naval base on the ocean's floor, but an alien-esque creature is making that task not only difficult, but deadly. The special effects are fairly humorous, the performances of the has-been soap opera cast are only adequate, and the script is poor. Director Sean S. Cunningham ("Friday the 13th") saves this picture from being a laughing howl in the wind, using some unique camera angles and articulate cinematography, but unfortunately does not have the support or the screenplay to produce an effective horror film. Fans of the genre will be satisfied, but those looking for a stylish, scary monster movie should stick with "Aliens". The DVD does not provide many features except the standard scene selections and director commentary."
