Film Review: 'The Deep'

11 July 2013 3:23 PM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆ A filmmaker torn between intimate tales set in his native Iceland and big-budget Hollywood genre pieces (next up is the Mark Wahlberg/Denzel Washington actioner 2 Guns), director Baltasar Kormákur is back on familiar soil with 'based on a true story' survival drama The Deep (Djúpið, 2012). Sparsely plotted and unforgivingly sombre, Kormákur character study centres upon portly fisherman Gulli (Ólafur Darri Ólafsson), who is forced to endure the near-freezing temperatures of the Atlantic after his trawler is dragged under by a snagged net. Left alone to consider his seemingly imminent death, Gulli suddenly spies land.

However, in a classic case of 'out of the frying pan and into the fire', our bedraggled everyman finds himself washed up onto a treacherous lava field, its long petrified magma transformed into razor-sharp daggers that tear at the feet of this unfortunate soul to ribbons. Staggering through this Hell on Earth, Gulli miraculously arrives back »
