Deep Rising is a guilty pleasure of mine. It's one of those films I rented on a whim and and simply fell in love with.
Is it a great film? No.
Does it have a great script? Not really, and it's downright silly in parts.
Does it have great acting? Eh, there's been better...
But the effects are good, the characters are likable, the creature is neat, and somehow it all comes comes together to make an enjoyable B schlock horror/comedy that, in my case anyway, leaves me with a big smile on my face.
Oh and as an added bonus, Famke Janssen is simply lovely in this film. Rent it on a rainy day and you won't be disappointed.
