Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The rest of the movie is a predictable guns 'n' beasts gorefest that wants to be equal parts Aliens, Titanic, and Anaconda but winds up being all parts crap."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"It's Poseidon Adventure, Alien Resurrection, any heist movies, Jaws, and a little art house flick called Titanic all in one."
‑ Karina Montgomery, Cinerina

‑ Elias Savada, Nitrate Online

‑ Scott Weinberg,
"Goes for two and three climaxes, blows up far too many things, and generally wears out its welcome before it's over."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, Film Journal International
" old-fashioned and flat-out fun monster movie that benefits from Treat Williams' tremendously engaging lead performance."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"It's a pity the creatures don't eat the cast up faster"
