Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The latter half of the film is one long feeding frenzy, guided by a familiar horror-film principle: survival of the best-looking."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"There are some slow spots, and because it so closely mirrors a horror classic, there's not a lot of originality or surprise."
‑ Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat
"Big, dumb monster movie."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Dismal knock-off of THE ABYSS, but better than DEEP STAR SIX."
‑ Brian Mckay, eFilmCritic.com
"There are some interesting psychological overtones here that have to do with genetic research, but they are never explored."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"Leviathan is intermittently interesting, but it's a bad sign that the movie starts losing its punch when the monster shows up."
‑ Richard Harrington, Washington Post
"It's almost impossible to discuss Leviathan without making a reference (or three) to James Cameron's far, far superior Aliens..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"A "just say no" (or "nyet") PSA disguised as a thriller."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Okay effects, good performances, and just a little more than the FDA- recommended daily minimum allowance of mindless entertainment and chills."
‑ James Rocchi, Netflix
"Marks a low point in special effects wizard Stan Winston's career..."
‑ James O'Ehley, Sci-Fi Movie Page
"Pulled off with a fine cast and a taut storytelling sensibility from director George P. Cosmatos, the film is worth a revisit or a first-time look, whichever the case may be."
‑ Dustin Putman, TheBluFile.com
"Cheesy hybrid of Alien, The Thing, and The Abyss."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Forgettable and predictable, but with a good cast and some fun special effects."
‑ Andreas Samuelson, Slasherpool
"Cheesy underwater monster movie that, for some reason, I have a perverse enjoyment of."
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
