Critic Reviews:

Deep Rising is a bit of an ‘unchain your brain’ movie that everyone can enjoy. If you like big action set-pieces and explosions, you’ll get it here. If you like romance during impossible times? You’ll get it here. If you like gooey and visceral gore? You’ll get it here.

Deep Rising, being a typical B-movie, still had pretty decent special effects for its time. Some of the effects are actually still good, albeit a little outdated in places. Considering that it’s over 20 years old, it’s actually holding up far better than many movies from the same time, and even better than what you can see in some movies today.

This film is well worth a watch and I’d describe it as a forgotten gem, it’s not perfect and at times feels quite dated but that’s to be expected from CGI done nearly 20 years ago. The film runs at a decent pace, has some great action scenes, decent deaths and some likable main characters which isn’t common in monster movies.
