A group of heavily armed hijackers board a luxury ocean liner in the South Pacific Ocean to loot it, only to do battle with a series of large-sized, tentacled, man-eating sea creatures who have taken over the ship first.
When a band of ruthless hijackers invade the world's most luxurious cruise ship, they're shocked to discover the passengers have mysteriously vanished! But that doesn't mean they are alone! Something terrifying is lurking just out of sight: a deadly force from the unexplored depths of the ocean that begins to snatch the horrified intruders one by one! Written by

One of the few films that has no heroes or heroines. Finnegan and his crew are hired for villainous reasons. Trillian is a thief. The mercenaries are simply mercenaries. See more »
When Mason says, "I don't mean to sound like a pussy," he is pointing his rifle towards the water where our characters are about to dive in, but then in the next shot when he says, "but this shit is startin' to freak me out, man!" his rifle is pointing in the opposite direction. See more »
[the rad stops working]
Son of a bitch. Pantucci!
[Stands up and hits his head]
Ow! shit man!
I'm flyin' blind up here, brainiac. I thought you fixed the radar.
It's a little temperamental, you have to be gentle.
Gentle, my ass. The whole system just crapped out on me.
Killed off by your negative vibes no doubt.
[Finnegan hits the radar, which sends sparks flying at the box that Joeys at and makes him jump]
Are you hitting that thing again?

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
