Goofs

When they board the ship, Finnigan's boat is far below the cargo door; then, when he jumps from the boat in to help Trilian it is at the almost same level - which is plausible since the ship is sinking. However, when they jump on the Ski-Doo to escape, it is again far below the door again. See more »

B-movie Delight
17 March 2003 | by David ElroySee all my reviews

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
