Leviathan (1989)

leviathanBy Scott Goldfine

Peter Weller is a geologist in charge of an undersea mining facility in this sci-fi thriller. The crew falls prey to a generic experiment gone awry and “Alien”-like misadventures ensue. Despite a capable cast, this film falls flat. It can’t compare to “Alien” and it even pales next to the similarly themed “Deep Star 6.”

If it were any more derivative it would qualify as a parody. Also stars Richard Crenna, Daniel Stern and Ernie Hudson. Rated R.
