This ain`t no pleasure cruise
Certificate: 15
Running Time: 106 mins
Retail Price: £15.99
Release Date:

A roller-coaster ride, a life-and-death journey to escape terrifying sea creatures that have come from the ocean floor to infest the Argonautica, one of the largest luxury liners in the world. From the bottomless depths of the South China Sea, gruesome creatures surface to attack and cannibalise the passengers on a luxury cruise liner.

With swift and deadly precision, these voracious serpents swarm through every deck and passageway, devouring all living things in sight, and transforming the vessel into a floating chamber of horrors. For the few terrified survivors remaining on board who are able to elude the bone-crushing forces, a living nightmare awaits them at every turn.

`Deep Rising` stars Treat Williams (`The Devil`s Own`), Famke Janssen (`GoldenEye`), Djimon Hounsou (`Amistad`) and Jason Flemyng (`Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels`).

I agree with the previous reviewer. Yes, it is a B movie but it highly entertaining, fun and humourous. It features quite a good cast who play their roles with energy and humour. If you enjoyed Tremors or the Mummy, you should enjoy this.
The plot may be silly, the acting not too great, the dialogue dodgy but is really is a good film to watch with your mates. Since it is selling for less than a tenner, it is worth picking up.
