Underwater (2020)



Critic Consensus: Underwater's strong cast and stylish direction aren't enough to distract from the strong sense of déjà vu provoked by this claustrophobic thriller's derivative story.

Critic Reviews for Underwater

All Critics (209) | Top Critics (31)

The Abyss meets Aliens with a bit of The Poseidon Adventure, a lot of Pacific Rim and a dash of The Meg in this subaquatic sci-fi that offers nothing more than the sum of its references.

As viewers of this dreck, we could teach the earth's crust a few things about being deeply bored.

Instantly forgettable.

The plot is 'The Abyss'-lite, the horror beats feel cadged from 'Alien' and the seafood-looking CG monsters appear to have been liberated from a bin outside Iceland.

There's no better feeling than starting the New Year right with an affectionate, action-packed genre picture.

January 28, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The dream-like atmosphere must be partly intentional, if the recurring Alice in Wonderland references are anything to go by -- though it also seems like a result of sheer indifference to the many gaps in the script.
