Deep Blue Sea - C-
Viewed December 13, 1999 at the Chateau

Yet another moral lesson about tampering in God's Domain, Deep Blue Sea is a typical Alien clone that thrills on finding truly creative ways to kill people[1]. There's a couple of moments of wicked humor, such as Samuel L. Jackson's "inspirational" speech where he all but confesses to cannibalism, but these moments are few and far between and the film lacks the consistent tongue-in-cheek mode of a Stephen Sommers film or Harlin's own Long Kiss Goodnight that's really the only way to enjoy something this inherently idiotic.

[1]Unlike the terrific Tremors, a perfect "popcorn" picture in my book, which is far more concerned about finding creative ways to keep people alive.
