Film Review: Jude Law Submarines a Passable But Unspectacular ‘Black Sea’

9 hours ago | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – I’m on board with Jude Law leading a film and neutral about submarine movies as a genre. My primary pre-screening interest in the quietly marketed thriller “Black Sea” was what Oscar-winning director Kevin Macdonald would do with this material following his hit with the hard-hitting drama “The Last King of Scotland”.

As it turns out, Jude Law as a desperate, angry and greedy skipper is not nearly as impactful as Forest Whitaker’s brutal Ugandan dictator. And “Black Sea,” which dives down to oceanic hull break point, isn’t propelled by nearly as deep of a story as the Oscar-winning Whitaker film.

Rating: 2.5/5.0

As for standing the test of time, “Black Sea” won’t. The film will not appear on favorite submarine film lists in the company of greats including “The Hunt for Red October,” “Crimson Tide,” “U-571,” “K-19: The Widow Maker,” “The Abyss” and “20,000 Leagues Under »

Film Review: Efficient Submarine Adventure ‘Black Sea’ Offers Classic Thrills

30 January 2015 5:50 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Having explored the farthest fields of space in films like “Gravity” and “Interstellar,” we may have forgotten the danger that awaits down below. “Black Sea” is a lean, often thrilling submarine tale that takes viewers on a journey of timeless terror and sacrificial pursuits.

Rating: 3.5/5.0

Black Sea” is a working class treasure hunt, set in the world of blue collar men who have devoted their lives to working in submarines, but aren’t appreciated by their fat cat employees. A recently fired sub captain named Robinson (Jude Law) makes a deal with his former employer to help the company retrieve a sub with Nazi gold inside of it. On board are men like Ben Mendelsohn’s out-of-control Fraser, corporate stooge Daniels (Scoot McNairy), and young first-timer Tobin (Bobby Schofield).

The cause for Jude Law to earn some respect continues, as he works with diverse characters without a golden showboating, »

Interview: Director Kevin Macdonald Gets Under His ‘Black Sea’

29 January 2015 5:58 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The old fashioned paranoid thriller lives, with the release of ‘Black Sea,’ a submarine movie that combines elements of the silent running of those underwater tin cans with the motivation of finding treasure – in this case Nazi gold – that has been buried where it sunk 70 years ago. The director of this film, Kevin Macdonald, creates a nail biting tension in the will-they-or-won’t-they survival mode of the British and Russian members of the submarine’s crew, led by Captain Robinson (Jude Law).

The Scotland-born Macdonald began his career as a notable documentary maker, winning an Oscar for his documentary “One Day in September” (1999), about the raid by Palestinian terrorists of the 1972 Munich Olympics. But he has also spun some Oscar gold in the narrative category, as Forest Whitaker won Best Actor for the Macdonald directed “The Last King of Scotland.” He continued to produce both features (“State of Play, »

Black Sea – The Review

29 January 2015 2:07 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Review by Kathy Kaiser

Gone is the suave and debonair Dr. Watson persona we have come to love and enjoy – just in case you were wondering going in – as Jude Law brings a Real-man vibe playing the stoic and determined captain in his latest film – Black Sea.

After being a part of the sea for too many years to count, Robinson (Jude Law) is canned from his position at a shipping yard, and isn’t sure at all what his next move should be.

Lost and fumbling through life since his divorce, what is a man to do with no family in his life and now no profession or income? When Robinson is approached to take on an undercover illegal heist of a Russian sub buried in the Black Sea that is supposedly Full Of Gold – he jumps at the opportunity.

Batman V Superman Jason Momoa Talked Possible IMAX Details & More

29 January 2015 12:35 PM, PST | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

Recently, the Daily Beast got to chat up "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" Aquaman star, Jason Momoa (left), and he talked about how much it means to him to be in the new flick, along with the new Justice League : Part 1 movie. It turns out the either the Batman vs Superman or Justice League movies could possibly be in IMAX or maybe both according to Jason's comments, which read like this: "It’s awesome as an actor to know what your future is going to be because I have children and I’ve busted my ass to put food on the table. It’s awesome knowing that I’m going to be in Justice League because my son is the biggest Batman fan and my daughter loves Wonder Woman. It’ll be cool for them to see me in something because they’re not going to be watching »

Jason Momoa talks Aquaman, says he wont be blonde

29 January 2015 1:06 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jason Momoa was announced last year as playing Aquaman in the DC Cinematic Universe, and while his first appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is still over a year a way, fans are keen to get any little bit of information they can about the film.

During a panel at the Sundance Film Festival, Momoa has offered up some new details, responding to a question from a fan about what we can expected by stating: “Well, things are going to be a little different. When I first went in I met with Zack [Snyder] and his idea is pretty amazing. When I went in, he told me … my jaw kind of dropped. My jaw doesn’t normally drop. What he has planned for the DC world and for … definitely for Aquaman is something that, you know… I think I was brought on for a certain reason and they got »

'Black Sea' (2015) Movie Review

28 January 2015 8:03 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Scottish director Kevin Macdonald found some early success and notoriety with his first narrative feature The Last King of Scotland, which ended up earning Forest Whittaker an Oscar. Since then films such as State of Play and The Eagle haven't played so well, though his 2013 feature, How I Live Now, managed to turn some heads, even if it wasn't released on a very wide basis. Known at the beginning of his career as a documentary filmmaker, he's continued on that track here and there, most recently with Marley, but now he comes to the table with his latest fictional feature, a submarine thriller titled Black Sea starring Jude Law as a submarine captain in search of lost Nazi gold. While Black Sea has something of an Indiana Jones-sounding plotline, it's far more serious than that. To go along with the search for sunken gold off the coast of Georgia, there's »

"Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" - 'Jimmy Olsen' ?

26 January 2015 1:46 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Take another look @ images from the Detroit, Michigan set of director Zack Snyder's "Man Of Steel" sequel, "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice", revealing actor Scoot McNairy ("Halt and Catch Fire") filming a dialogue scene, reportedly as 'Jimmy Olsen':

"...Scoot is playing 'Jimmy Olsen', but with a bit of a twist. Jimmy was injured during the battle of 'Zod' vs 'Superman'. 

"His legs were pinned under falling building rubble and that caused him to lose the legs. 

"He now walks with prosthetic legs that will be realized with CGI FX, hence the green-screen socks. Jimmy doesn't blame Superman for the accident, but grateful to 'Kal-El' for saving the world..."

The comic book origins of Jimmy Olsen began as an unnamed 'office boy' debuted in DC's "Action Comics" #6 (November 1938). That character was also first introduced as 'Jimmy Olsen' in the radio show "The Adventures of Superman", April 15, 1940.

Is this the line-up for Guillermo Del Toro’s Justice League Dark?

26 January 2015 11:24 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The last we heard about Guillermo Del Toro’s Justice League Dark was that the script was finished and it would be part of the DC Cinematic Universe. Although, we still have no release date.

In an previous interview, Del Toro stated that the line-up for his Justice League Dark movie would include Swamp Thing, Demon, Deadman and Zatana. Well according to Latino-Review, there could be a slight change to that line-up.

El Mayimbe (who has blocked us on Twitter so thanks to Cbm for the heads up) claims that the line-up will be John Constantine, Zatana, Deadman and Jason Blood.

Del Toro is also working on Pacific Rim 2 with Zak Penn, so there is every chance that Justice League Dark could be on the development table for some time yet.

Before we get to Justice League Dark, we need to kick things off with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice »

Win Run-Of-Engagement Passes To See Black Sea In St. Louis

26 January 2015 5:39 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Outside a submarine thousands of leagues under the sea lies a dark, cold death. Inside the sub lies a crew on a mission that could salvage their lives…Mining full-speed-ahead tension from a fathoms-deep treasure hunt, Black Sea is a suspenseful adventure thriller directed by Academy Award winner Kevin Macdonald.

Robinson (two-time Academy Award nominee Jude Law) is a submarine captain, and the sea calls him at the expense of all else: his nearly 30 years of voyages have cost him the love of his wife Chrissy (Jodie Whittaker) and child. When the salvage company for whom he has toiled over 11 years abruptly lays him off, this working-class ex-Navy man finds himself adrift.

But after hearing the tale of a German U-boat full of WWII-era gold sitting on a bed in the Georgian depths of the Black Sea, the captain feels he can prove himself anew. He jumps at a funding »

New Batman V Superman Reportedly Bringing Back General Zod As Doomsday,New Details

24 January 2015 1:49 PM, PST | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

According to a new report from Movieweb and their sources, there's some new rumors flying around that claims the new "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" super hero/action movie is bringing back the dead corpse of Michael Shannon's General Zod (left) to be the dreaded Doomsday villain! If the rumor turns out to be true, the film would supposedly have Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) experiment on Zod's dead body, since it is, "the key to his master plan to defeat Superman." The experiment would then "trigger the Doomsday genome" which re-animates the dead body and turns it into the villainous Doomsday. They did reiterate that this is an unconfirmed rumor as it has not been confirmed by Warner Bros. Pictures. With that being said, something like this could possibly take place. Of course, if it does, we more than likely wouldn't know until we actually see it in »

Is Michael Shannon in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?

24 January 2015 4:47 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Rumours have resurfaced again about Michael Shannon having a role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Shannon played General Zod in Man of Steel but due to his character’s fate in that film, it was thought unlikely that he would return for the latest instalment in the series. However, Shannon was spotted alongside Henry Cavill in Chicago a few months back, and now a new report from Comic Book is claiming that General Zod will appear in the new movie, with his body serving as the basis for Doomsday.

“His corpse is stolen (or perhaps just acquired, given his military contacts in most versions of the modern mythology) by Lex Luthor and experimented on, presumably in the hopes of finding a weakness to exploit against Superman. In the course of his experimenting, we’ve been told that he “triggers the Doomsday genome,” causing the corpse to reanimate as »

Black Sea, red carpet by Anne-Katrin Titze

Black Sea director Kevin Macdonald with Jude Law: "He really entered into that character." Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

At the premiere in New York of Kevin Macdonald's action-packed marine thriller Black Sea, starring an intrepid Jude Law with Scoot McNairy and Ben Mendelsohn, I asked Law about his relationship to the ocean and talked with producer Charles Steel about the horror of shackled skeletons. Screenwriter Dennis Kelly gives the world an ultimatum and I found out from the director that for him grapefruit rituals differ from continent to continent.

Law's face in Black Sea, looking a bit more roughed up and disillusioned than we are used to, commands the story of survival and greed. Wolfgang Petersen's Das Boot meets Bong Joon-ho's Snowpiercer, meets Andrew Dominik's Killing Them Softly. The latter because of the team of McNairy [as Daniels] and Mendelsohn [as Fraser]. The two actors form again a wildly entertaining duo of unsavoury immoral characters. »
