Like Friday the 13th, the film is about picking off the characters one by one, but here, Cunningham succeeds in a creature feature that focuses on the psychoses of the men and women trapped under the sea. Their assignment is to install nuclear missiles on the ocean floor, but the mission becomes jeopardized when they open an underground cavern. It spends a lot of the first half hour with each of them as they do their jobs on the sub. The movie will appeal to bad horror film lovers and does appear to be bigger than the straight-to-video movies that dominated the video stores at the time. Low budget thrills and water-based filming, however, generally make unpleasant bedfellows.
The ensuing detonation collapses part of the seabed, forming a massive fissure in the ocean floor. McBride swims through the flooded base to the mini-sub, to use it as their means of escape. Scarpelli Nia Peeples who wants to explore a massive cavern that is discovered under the planned site. Miguel Ferrer clearly gives the best performance in this film with his excellent, slimy portrayal of Snyder, the ever-picked-upon handyman eager to get topside. After a hallucination of Van Gelder, Snyder jumps into the escape pod and launches. In a masterful thriller like Jaws, Spielberg manages to hide the shark as much as possible while achieving maximum bang for a relatively minor buck.
The remaining crew now prepare to abandon the base, but the missile platform must first be secured. With failed life support, they begin repairs to restore power and pressure for the decompression procedure.

Loves all things pop-culture especially if it has a bit of a counter-culture twist. The characters are trapped in the spaceship oops, I mean underwater base and must escape the creature when the mission turns bad. Navy deep sea laboratory surveys the ocean shelf, researching the potential for underwater colonization methods and installing a nuclear missile storage platform. Even if some of the dialogue is a little too cheesy at times. Norris electrocutes herself and the creature as it attacks her, allowing Collins and McBride to escape, fleeing before the reactor goes critical. Already nearing his deadline, Van Gelder's plans are threatened when geologist Burciaga discovers a massive cavern system under the site.
Scarpelli Nia Peeples , who want to study the potentially primordial ecosystem inside. Tensions increase dramatically when an unidentified underwater creature targets them for dinner. Welcome to Seeing Double, a series where two strangely similar films released around the same time are put head-to-head. That is only half the generic cliches Cunningham poaches, the mild surprise being that a few of them work. But in 1989, Cunningham set his sights on a movie that completely disposed of the mysterious killer scenario; instead, Deepstar Six dove into the sea for an underwater adventure involving a group of Navy divers trapped in a submarine with an ancient arthropod trying to eat them. Leviathan stepped up the casting game a bit by featuring faces and talents recognizable from multiplexes across the country, with Peter Weller and Richard Crenna leading the pack.
The most notable actor probably is Miguel Ferrer who plays his normal screw-up guy. The monster is designed in such a way that it would have good deal of difficulty actually eating anything — in one of the more improbable moves, it appears to be capable of biting a two-ton pressure suit in half, yet is restrained by a mere bulkhead door. Upon finding the probe, they detect a large sonar contact moments before being attacked and killed by an unseen force. Pretty unfortunate that the monster has a claw that just fits perfectly around my neck… DeepStar Six is at the end of their run.

The sub breaches the surface, where they deploy a raft, only for the creature to emerge.
The team retreats as the creature consumes the panic-stricken Scarpelli. Scarpelli Nia Peeples and Richardson Matt McCoy have a fling going on; Snyder Miguel Ferrer is suffering from a little bit of cabin fever, and a whole lot of guilt later on in the film. Originally, was going to direct the film. Feeling less like a horror and more like a sci-fi thriller for first half, once the creature does get unleashed things take a darker turn. The monster attempts to look like a trilobite-dinosaur hybrid, but it is goofy and not threatening. Namely script… and characters… and originality.
