USO’s: Unidentified Swimming Objects
The name Sean S. Cunningham will automatically always be attached to ‘Friday the 13th’ his notorious teen-slasher that messed up the genre for good. Yet, Mr. Cunningham did do a few slightly more ambitious projects. This DeepStar Six is a semi-successful undersea-monster mash with surprisingly good acting, decent special effects and a couple of good old-fashioned scary moments. The film deserves a reasonable rating, slightly higher than all other lame and laughable Ridley Scott and James Cameron wannabes. The plot involves an 11-headed crew that is about to finish up a 6-month research at the bottom of the ocean. When exploring the ocean floor, they accidentally stumble upon a hideous and relentless monster. Like it usually is the case in this type of films, it takes a little while before you actually get to see the monster. By that time, human stupidity already exterminated half of the cast . Granted, the monster itself is one ugly critter and not at all badly put together by the special effects department.
But let’s not praise this film too much, because it simply remains a rather anonymous 80’s monster movie like we’ve seen them so many times before already. Not one action presented here isn’t inspired by or similar to the ones featuring in other films and every character is a flawless stereotype. The performances given by the entire cast actually outshine the roles they’re playing. Highlight of them all is Miguel Ferrer who portrays the typical, cowardly crewmember. Constantly complaining and arguing at first and when the monster shows up he flees to and leaves his colleagues to their own device. Every monster flick stars a bastard like that, you know. As well as the super-intelligent and over-ambitious female scientist and the heroic captain who sacrifices himself in order to save his crew. If you ignore these inevitable weaknesses, you’ll certainly have fun. You get what you expect, and that doesn’t necessarily have to sound like a bad comment.
Better than you might expect it to be
Yes, this movie isn’t that awful. It does have some questionable physics, and a whole bunch of plot holes. It even has some bad actors! But in the end, it keeps going well enough to maintain interest, albeit sometimes only to see what foolishness comes up next.
The main star (I guess) is Greg Evigan, of BJ and the Bear fame. He doesn’t have a chimp side-kick here, though. In fact, there are a whole bunch of people who filmgoers will recognise, if not be able to put a name to. But the real star is Miguel Ferrer, who has a kind of Hudson-from-Aliens role. He gets increasingly manic as the film progresses until he finally loses it totally. The movie is worth watching for him alone!
The plot is the usual “science tampering with nature” deal and the ensuing onslaught of nature on science. Nothing remarkable. Nothing that isn’t predictable. The creature, however, is refreshingly different and done well enough with the effects of the day to not look pathetic in this age of CGI.
As I mentioned, there are some dodgy plot holes and physics, but the movie entertains enough that you can overlook them (for the most part) and just enjoy it.
All in all a film worth a look in on a quiet day.
