| Starts off well but quickly goes downhill
What keeps Deep Evil just about afloat are the creepy first half-hour and the good creature design(The Creature from the Black Lagoon comparison is definitely apt). The acting is also competent, nobody is terrible but nobody apart from Lorenzo Lamas perhaps stands out either. Deep Evil however was the sort of movie that started off with promise but went in a downward spiral very quickly. There is nothing interesting about how it looks, how it's shot is dully lit with a use of bland colours. And most of the special effects are generically coloured and look as though they were constructed in a rush at last minute. The music doesn't drive the movie at all, in fact it is a very lifeless soundtrack and is just forgettable at the end of the day. The dialogue is very turgid stuff, full of tiresome clichés and full of lines that make you go "what do they mean by that?" How the actors managed to keep a straight face or not look embarrassed is quite an accomplishment. The story is often slow to the point of boredom, and is predictable and like Alien mixed with The Thing but with hardly any of the suspense, thrills or nail-biting horror. The deaths are generally weak, in number and how they're played, and the alien(s) are not threatening in the least and are developed and characterised very poorly. The science and the depiction of the military will raise eyebrows and even annoy/anger people. There is very little interesting about the characters and you don't care for a single one. To conclude, not bad to start with but from half-an-hour in it's very bad. 3/10 Bethany Cox
