Captain Frances Kelly (Driver) leads a research team below the Arctic ice aboard the cutting-edge submarine Orpheus in a quest to solve the world's burgeoning energy crisis and establish the fate of a doomed previous expedition, and expedition that took the wife of Kelly's chief engineer (Nesbitt). Enduring crushing pressure, violent volcanic gas eruptions, freezing temperatures and total darkness, the Orpheus arrives at the Lomonosov Ridge, an area of seabed within disputed territory under United Nations' administration and monitoring. Nobody ever goes there but there is something else in the freezing depths: something huge, a behemoth of epic proportions, menace and unknown purpose. As the Orpheus crew struggle for survival and attempt to unravel the mysteries of the deep, they uncover secrets more terrifying than they ever could have imagined. Written by
Anyone hungry? Try tripe...or this show. Big name actors to entice us; James Nesbitt, Minnie Driver - but what a waste of viewing time. The scriptwriters should be shot. Oohh look, there's a thing; ooh look, it's big; ooh look, nasty Russians. Bland, bland, bland.
The story did not develop the characters for us. We are expected to trust the script and almost automatically know that Minnies character is the leader, that she's in love with another, that James character is the broody tough guy who will overcome the adversity, that Svetlana knows 12 languages and is not just a pretty face. Also, add in a token black female character cos somehow, that balances the crew.
I thought scientists in a sub would all wear the same clothing, you know, overalls or wet weather gear.
Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea was better and that was 40 years ago.
One hour never to be recovered. Forget the next four.
