But this submarine has a life of its own and the new crew soon start showing characteristics of the old crew. Written by
David Jason is brilliant. Sadly a good actor cannot salvage an obvious story line (which owes a lot to other works, such as the similarly named Ghostship) which meant it all became a little predictable, and towards the end just plain silly.
Characters behave inconsistently and illogically as the story lurches towards the less than surprising end.
The special effects themselves were also erratic - obviously a lot of money was spent on the set of the sub, but the cgi shots ranged from the okay to dreadful.
Okay if you are bored, but not the great work I was expecting.
