Deep Star Six

Rating:

The only reason I watched Deep Star Six was because I remembered the excellent box art on the tape and was intrigued to finally see what this movie was all about. I think I was in the right mindset at the moment because I actually enjoyed this despite its major plot and characterization shortcomings. It was just nice to see a movie filled with practical effects in an underwater setting that, outside of The Abyss, is underused in cinematic sci-fi. If only they'd cut down on the F-bombs this could have been a memorable PG horror film like we used to get in the afternoons on HBO.
