THE PLOT:

An underwater research rig called Deepstar Six uncovers a cavern deep under the ocean. A cavern that contains something that they were not expecting, a strange creature that has one thing after centuries of hybernation and that is "EAT! EAT! EAT!". But tuna fish salad is not on this beastie's menu. Human flesh is. So the question remains, how are they going to escape being the main course in this thing's meal while trapped hundreds of feet under the water and stay sane doing it?

ZEDD'S OPINION:

Three major underwater movies came out in 1989, Deepstar Six, the Abyss and Laviathan. Now first place will have to go to the Abyss. It's great but more about that when I review the Abyss. But as for Deepstar Six, it has some minor character issues and it is your stereo typical monster movie situation. Monster found in cave, starts eating everyone. The cast does a great job with what was given to them. The effects are good for your standard animatronic monster movie. Nothing special. Nothing bad either. Now what gets my goat is that they never say that the monster is an alien, and how it got there in the first place. That's my only major complaint so in the under water monster movielympic race, the winner is THE ABYSS, but coming in a close second is DEEPSTAR SIX who takes the silver. I give it 8 STARS

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree with Zedd and yet I think the character issues didn't work. I think that they could have been more three dimensional and less of a a**hole. I think the cast does a good job for what they were given. But all and all I think they could have done better. I give it..6 STARS

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ CAST (The cast does a good job for what they were working with)
+ EFFECTS (Won't win any Oscars, but still pretty damn good.)
+ CREATURE DESIGN (The creature in this movie is kind of cool.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES)

- WHAT IS IT? (What was this strange creature? Alien? Mutant? Dinosaur? WHAT?)
- WHERE DID IT COME FROM (If it is an alien, how did it get there?)
- CHARACTER ISSUES (Some of the characters were major jerks.)
- TYPICAL MONSTER FLICK (Somewhat predictiable. Jumps in the place your suppose to jump.)

AND FINALLY...

- ABYSS IS BETTER (Out of the three monster movies that takes place under water, this comes in second.)
