  • DeepStar Six 1989

    ★★½ Watched 20 Jan, 2015

    Dull, perfunctory "under the water no one can hear you rip off Alien" flick that is most interesting for it's terrible matte paintings and models, it's cast of TV actors and in just how perfunctory one of these things can be.

Chris Evans continues to show that he really needs to be in more good roles than just playing Captain America.
