Movie couldn't been made without hard work.
10 November 2003 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

The documentary shows clearly how hard it was to make The Abyss.Making- team of Abyss really had problems making the movie and it almost was doomed to fail. Document includes scenes of actors talking about the dangers that occured, and scenes of making the movie of course. I have to say that it's almost impossible to think what kind of technique they already had at the 80's to make all the special effects. The documentary show everything you need to know about the movie.
