The "Chinese M1 L1 triple-pulse assault rifles" used by the pirates are actually heavily modified Calico M-960 submachine guns fitted with 100-round magazines (as opposed to the "thousand-round capacity" mentioned by Hanover). Five non-functional rotating barrels were built around the actual barrel of each Calico and driven by a small electric motor connected to the trigger, so that whenever the gun was fired, it appeared to be firing out of the rotating barrels.

After the Argonautica is sabotaged, the man at the radar warns about something moving rapidly towards the ship and he is able to tell the speed and distance. Nevertheless, the same man claimed seconds before that they were sailing with "blank screens", and previously the imaging, navigational and communication systems are shown to be "disengaged". How can the officers on the bridge detect the creatures coming if all instruments are down? See more »
[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?
No man, he's right. There's plenty of food here. We can hold out til they rescue us.
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.
You wanna wind up in jail, Mulligan?
Better there than in the belly of one of those things

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
