Trivia

In the initial scene of the Argonautica Casino there can be seen some old Italian banknotes probably used to portrait an exotic foreign currency; their size is 2000 lire and 1000 lire. These were the smallest banknote sizes at the time, roughly equivalent to 1$ and 50c of 2013 - in 1998 the price of an Italian newspaper was 1200 lire. See more »

Quotes

Mulligan: [the remaining six survivors are in the galley. Mulligan closes a hatch door] I say we stay right here!
Trillian St. James: Are you insane?
Pantucci: No man, he's right. There's plenty of food here. We can hold out til they rescue us.
Canton: They're right. This is the galley for the crew. It was built almost entirely air tight in case of fire. With these hatches closed there's no way those things could get in here.
Hanover: You wanna wind up in jail, Mulligan?
Mulligan: Better there than in the belly of one of those things!

B-movie Delight
17 March 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are times when nothing satisfies like a good ol' B-movie action-adventure, not meant to be deep or serious, just good excitement and fun. Yet truly excellent B-movies are not easily come by. This director's own "Scorpion King", in fact, is a textbook example of how the formula can fail: too Hollywoodized, too predictable, too tame, and not funny enough. But before he Hollywoodized himself in Mummyland, this director (and writer!) gave us the masterful "Deep Rising." B-movie fans know who they are and what they want, and they will not be disappointed here. I rank "Deep Rising" up there with the best of John Carpenter and Sam Raimi. 9/10
