But This ship is state of the art...
Doesn't matter with the computer systems down... we are sailing blind... and with no bloody way of contacting anyone for help.
Sir? I've got something on my sonar.
What is it, Collins?
I'm not sure sir... but whatever it is... it's big.
Probably a bottom feeding whale.
Moving at 200 knots? Sir, I don't think so.
Where's it coming from?
Directly below us sir... moving at 160 meters and still rising... 150 meters... 140 meters... 130... 120... 110... 90...

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.
