Poor filming.
17 August 2008 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

Well, to say that BLACK OPS (a.k.a DEAD WATER) is Oscar gold would probably anger a lot of people who have seen it, but for me as a horror fan, it was like watching a movie with my TV turned off, everything that mainly took place in dark areas you couldn't see and the places that were supposed to be well lit, seemed like the light was cast by using very cheap bed lamps, honestly the lighting effects in this film are so poor adjusting your TV's contrast makes it look like your watching a fog bank, the storyline is uninteresting, plainly put, the acting seems decent but the dialog was poor so the acting is more shallow Overall, If you don't like a movie that mainly takes place in the dark and don't have an interesting storyline, well try something else of course.
