Now what?Deep Rising is an underrated 1998 Stephen Sommers film, and arguably his best work. The basic plot is that our hero, boat pilot for hire John Finnegan (Treat Williams), is contracted by a group of mercenaries to transport them to a luxury cruise liner that they intend to rob. When they arrive on board, they realize that no one is there. It appears that someone, or something, has killed all the guests.Sounds stupid? It is. But one of the things that makes this movie such an excellent and endearing Guilty Pleasure is that it knows exactly what it is, and doesn't take itself seriously for one moment. It also succeeds thanks to a surprisingly good cast, fast pacing and good humor throughout.
