Trivia

Near the beginning of the movie, when Tony 'DeJesus' Rodero's oxygen is about to run out, the captain tries to do something with a computer on board. Between 3D animations and strange interferences on monitor, we see Luxo, Pixar's logo, with a ball, like in the first ever short film made by Pixar Luxo Jr. (1986). See more »

Goofs

When Willie falls off the ridge, you see her walking among some large tube worms. Immediately before she says "My God", the worm to her left clearly shows a vertical seam where the left/right pieces of the worm were glued together. See more »

Quotes

Jones: This whole thing is unnecessary, Doc. The only skin problem I can see is white people. How come you are wearing those gloves? It ain't bend-over time, is it?

One of the better sci-fi movie from the '80s
15 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie is an obvious Alien copy, only that it's settings have changed from outer space to under water.

In my opinion, '80s was the decade of low for good sci-fi movies. There were many really bad B sci-fi made during that time. But this is one of the few well made movies from that era.

If you're going to be cooped up in a small area, you might as well be with sexy good looking people like they did in this movie.

I liked the scene where "doc" just went right into the shower stall where Bowman was taking the shower, just saying "Bowman, it's doc". Doctor's privilege ?

I don't have much bad things to say about this movie except that in my opinion, they spoiled the movie at the last scene where the creature comes to the surface. The creature looked so fake that I think it destroyed the good image of the movie.

So asides from the ending, the movie was very well made, and was entertaining to watch.
