As a rip-off of Alien and The Thing set underwater, Leviathan is actually quite a fun sci-fi/horror flick. It has no pretensions to be anything else but gory shocker. Heck, it actually starts out it a rather interesting fashion. Once the icky things start happening, it becomes a non-stop ride of thrills and shocks. It's certainly better than DeepStar Six and Endless Descent, two other underwater thrillers made in the same time period.

It's not as good as Alien or The Thing, and it borrows from both of them. But nearly every film borrows from other films. The question is whether it's entertaining and worth the price.
It's suspenseful, has good special effects, believable characters, and an interesting if implausible storyline. And it's a lot of fun!

Listen, I am not saying this movie was on the level of alien, but let's get real. It was as bad as a Carrot Top movie. Well acted and some good special effects make this a very entertaining movie. Give this movie a chance and I can guarantee that you will be surprised. Enjoy!

I enjoy a good story. Heck, I enjoy a decent story with a nifty monster. Being a fan of "The Thing" and other 80's style monster flicks, Leviathen is right up my ally. The production value is great, and the monster is no worse then other 80's horror movies.
The story is a bit slow, but so was "The Abyss" and that movie has tons of critical acclaim. I really believe "Leviathan" is an awesome example of a monster movie, and really encourage people to watch it. If you liked "Aliens", "The Thing", and/or "The Abyss" you WILL get something out of "Leviathan".

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.

Leviathan unlike the Abyss was one of numerous underwater thrillers that had good special effects but needed more work on the script. Peter Weller played a good part but should've stuck to playing Robocop and Richard Crenna who played Doc has never been the same since First Blood in 1982. But all in all A great film.

This is a special effects movie from 1989. Considering its age, the special effects hold up very well. However that can not be said about the plot of this movie. There first half of the movie starts slowly and it attempts to build supsense until the monster arives. Unfortunately the monster itself is so preposterous that its arrival only brings a major let down in the plot. The extended chase sequence is straight out of 'Alien' but holds none of the emotional tension that 'Alien' succeeds in providing.
This is a movie that tried to replicate the success of 'Alien'. It is really just 'Alien' placed underwater with none of its suspense.

To my surprise I actually enjoyed the first half of this movie. But once this poorly made fish creature began appearing while devoring half the cast, the movie transformed into an exact clone of Alien and I lost interest. Peter Weller and Ernie Hudson are the bright spots in an otherwise routine monster film with an unbelievably stupid ending.
