good CGI for its year however there`s total lack of originality, its no more than a bad copy of Alien (shot underwater instead of space)... dose of overreacting is sad...

This has some hilariously inept dialogue and overacting, but ultimately comes off as an Alien/Thing hybrid without the scares or cohesive plot or purpose. Almost worth seeing for the sheer facepalmery of the ending, which is one of the stupidest and most incompetently conceived/performed "false endings" I've ever seen.

Granted Leviathan lacks originally, it's pretty much Alien-under-the-sea mashed with The Thing, but strangely enough it manages to stay, somewhat, fresh. Admittedly it's not as good as either of the films it borrows ideas from but it still offers decent scares and the body horror is unsettling enough to actually make the film horrific.

Hollywood always seems to make the same movie twice every year. In 1989, they actually made it 3 times, with The Abyss, DeepStar Six and this one. All 3 are basically "Aliens" in the Ocean, but unlike both The Abyss and DeepStar Six, this lacks any real suspense. The old school monster effects are always welcomed, but beyond that, the only other good part of the film was the hilarious punch sound effect in the last scene of the film.

One of several similar films released at about the same time -- _The Abyss_, _Deep Star Six_, _Lords of the Deep_, and so on -- this is actually a fairly tense and effective, if predictable, variation on _The Thing_. The capable cast and direction help make up for its rather muddled storyline.

Competently acted with some great Stan Winston effects give this a passing score, but it truly is nothing more than an underwater version of Alien and The Thing.

When this came out I kept confusing it with The Abyss. Similar cover etc. It is not the Abyss. It is also not Alien or The Thing. Watch any of the aforementioned films instead of this.

A deep sea mining crew discovers a sunken Russian ship and pick up some kind of infection while exploring it. The victims morph together and undergo genetic mutation into a gooey, slavering aquamonster that the remaining crew have to fight to survive. Peter Weller and Ernie Hudson are both pretty decent despite how ludicrous the story is. It's entertaining and the excellent creature effects are worth checking out.

Good cast, but the premise and execution are just total rip-offs of Alien, The Thing, and The Abyss. It's good enough to hold your attention, but very unoriginal.

This is what happens when you have a large special effects budget but no story to use it on. You rip off Alien in the most uninspired way possible. The only redeeming part is the absurdly paced over-done ending

A good old fashioned 1980's suspense/horror/thriller, sort of an Alien knock-off, Aliens beneath the sea.
