Movie Review: Underwater

Whenever there is a movie about a group of scientists who are working miles under the ocean, two things will always happen. There will be problems with extreme water pressure, crushing parts or all of the structure the scientists live in. There will be new and horrendous deep sea creatures that come out of the deep to terrorize and kill whoever is in their way. This time around, one of the scientists is played by actress Kristen Stewart, and what is most unusual about this film is how quickly things go wrong. Within the first 5 minutes, there is a small leak and soon after, people are running for their lives – within tunnels that are 7 miles under the Sea.

Other actors in this film are Jessica Henwick, John Gallagher Jr, Vincent Cassel and T.J. Miller as the only other well known actor. Regardless of anyone’s rating or opinion about this movie, you have to admire some of the special effects and risks within extremely claustrophobic conditions the actors had to live in work in for months. This movie was actually made in 2017 and probably due to the low audience testing results, it has been on the shelf for 2 years. Not a good sign for any film.

I mostly agree with the relatively low ratings of about 50% for this movie and cannot recommend it, because there are not enough new things we all have not already seen in other similar films.
