I actually thought it was a pretty good movie. Nice little action thriller; lots of death which is always cool.

 

The storyline was a bit unbelievable, but once you get past that--it was well scripted and directed.

 

Amazingly, it was only about a 1.5 hours--felt like a lot longer. Anyway, I'd give it a 7/10 overall.

Yeah, on Rotten Tomatoes (not that--that's the be all, end all of seeing a movie) the reviews are pretty skewed towards rotten.

 

141 reviews

99 rotten

 

Wolfgang Peterson is usually a pretty good director of these kinds of movies, too. I wasn't that intrigued by the trailer, myself.

It wasn't as much of a blockbuster as I expected. BUt it's still very enjoyable. I find that most of the time, I disagree with the average critic. But that's just me.

 

People expecting a Titanic-like monster of a movie would be disappointed. But if you want a non-stop, action-packed movie, this is it. It's not deep; it's not sophisticated. It is what it is--a thriller about a boat under water.

The movie does look kinda stupid from the previews. A boat gets hit by a big wave and goes upside go boom. Not a whole lot of creativity.

 

I thought the same thing (still do, really). But the action and story of the film is good overall I thought. It helped that it was a star-studded cast, at the very least. And a few unknowns did a good job as well.

you know if you are in a boat unside down, cant you just swim out of the bottom instead of trying to climb to the top to get out?

 

A) suction wouldn't allow it

B) the 'bottom' would be way too far under water to even attempt. And you don't even know what's above you when you get to the surface.

C) that kinda stuff only happens in 'Deep Blue Sea'
