I'm really surprised that this movie doesn't have a higher rating than what it does. It came out around the same time as "The Abyss" & "Levaithan," but I really think it is a good film by itself. I think obviously that "The Abyss" was the best of the three and "Leviathan" the worst, but "DeepStar Six" is sort of like that middle child that really gets ignored. It really blows my mind that "Leviathan" is rated higher than this movie and probably only because it had a bigger budget.
There are uniformly good performances throughout this film and decent enough special-effects, though they are rather dated. The music is well composed and it has a fairly believable story, so why the low ratings?
