Format:DVD
Coming in the late 1980s with all the momentum sprung from the "Alien" original and first repeat, "Leviathan" sought to take the alien model underwater, where a group of trash collectors fights on-board monsters with saws and flamethrowers.

The producers of this film knew a good model when they found it and obviously allowed the audience to laugh at their copycat ways by creating aliens that alternately look like tongues with teeth and moving intestines. There's also a paean to the real "Alien" near the end that Peter Weller does away with by squishing it's head in an elevator shaft.

And, in the final scene, you won't believe how hokey and stupid this kind of movie could be just a few years before the advent on high tech and high gloss computerization became de riguer in this type of thing. It's worth it to sit through the whole thing just to see that unbelievably dumb final scene.

Weller "starred" in this vehicle two years after his biggest hit, 1987's "RoboCop". This didn't do much for his reputation even though the cast included some great eye candy in Amanda Pays and the steely blue eyes of Meg Foster. A solid supporting cast headed by the great Richard Crenna, Ernie Hudson and Hector Elizondo offer a high level of acting credibility.

Still, they can't make sense of this mishmash which, oddly and fantastically, still works as horror. Leonard Maltin says to, "Skip it" on this one but I'd disagree. I think there's enough humor, whether intentional or unintentional, eye candy, schlock horror and fine acting to give you your money's worth. It didn't work as a big release in the theater but it's pretty good entertainment on a Tuesday night on your home system.

3.0 out of 5 stars Beware of the latex leg.... May 27, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Plot synapsis: Underwater mining rig, day 87 of a 90 day tour, goof-off sexist jerk wanders off and finds a sunken Russian freighter.

The cast consists of Peter Weller as the geologist boss, Richard Crenna as the semi-doctor and crewed by Ernie Hudson (who gets some of the best lines and steals his scenes), Amanda Pays (and her annoyingly fake accent) Daniel Stern, Michael Carmine, an adorable Lisa Eilbacher, Meg Foster (what IS it about her eyes? And why was she trying so hard to do a crappy acting job?), and the wonderful Hector Elizondo.

After ALIEN did the haunted house in space so successfully there were a lot of immitators. Then we had a few underwater adventures which did fairly well in a vauge sort of way. Think of this as a cheap way of combining both. Except for Pays and Foster, we have a group of really fine actors working in an underwater mining facility.

Personal note: Seriously, if this had been real and I was Pays' charactor I would have severly hurt the Stern character. His behavior was borish to the point of distracting from the movie and something no decent boss would have allowed.

Anyway, the movie cover said the magic words: GENETIC MUTATION! I was hooked, as always. Pays and Stern are outside doing their job when Stern wanders off (why?) and falls off a cliff. Movie goers probably cheered at that point. Pays goes after him, wandering through fakey looking sea worms and finds the Russian freighter. I liked the scary fish that pops up in Pays' face. Stern shows up with a huge safe, carrying it like it weighs 20 pounds instead of several hundred and they head back.

The safe contains a lot of 'personal effects' from deceased crewmembers which should have triggered a lot more concern than it did.

4.0 out of 5 stars underwater scares October 3, 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Having a monster movie filmed in a huge underwater mining lab is kinda silly at first, but gets pretty cool after a while. I've seen several Peter Weller movies, and this is his second best sci-fi movie he's done (right next to "RoboCop"). For people who haven't seen this movie yet, it's about a group of
wise-cracking underwater miners (led by Weller) who's being terrorized by a giant human-fishlike creature that was spawned from a genetic experiment gone haywire. The special effects was pretty cool, although they could have done a little more, but it's still an enjoyable movie to watch. Oscar winning composer Jerry Goldsmith (winner of the Best musical Score Oscar for 1976's "The Omen") does an excellect job conducting action & scary music sequences throughout the entire picture.

3.0 out of 5 stars Alien underwater! January 23, 2001
Format:DVD
Leviathan isn't nearly as good as the movie it so obviously tries to be. Though it offers better creature effects and set-designs than ALIEN, as well as a larger cast, and an equally good score, that doesn't justify its total lack of imagination. If you're a fan of the horror genere, you'll likely enjoy this movie. Be warned however. This movie is basically Alien set underwater. So if you're looking for something fresh, look elsewhere, because you'll probably see where this movie is headed less than fifteen minutes into it. Though Leviathan lacks in the plot department, it still exceeds the quality of most monster movies released in the theaters, which is why I recommend it. But to enjoy this movie fully, you should really watch it on DVD. Leviathan was shot in a 2.35:1 widescreen format. And when a movie is shot with a 2.35:1 aspect ratio, it means you'll only be seeing roughly half the image when you're watching it on t.v. or VHS, which are best to be avoided if you want to see this movie the way it was meant to be seen.
