Thousands of years ago, the world's most advanced civilisation sank beneath the waves, its people forever doomed to wander the ocean floor. The Underwater Realm is the story of the five times those on the surface have caught a glimpse below: freediving off the coast of modern Hawaii, a downed pilot at the height of World War II, amidst the smoke and fire of the Spanish Armada, a suicidal girl in medieval England, and finally, at the height of Roman Power in 149 BC.

Mermaids throughout the centuries?
4 February 2016 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

"The Underwater Realm" is a British short film from 4 years ago written and directed by David M. Reynolds and, according to IMDb, his second effort in both positions. Actually, it is five short films and not just one as we get to watch sea-themed stories playing during very different eras in terms of human history. The oldest takes us even back to before Christ was born. These were also not all released at once but one by one and chronologically backwards. I personally cannot say I enjoyed the watch too much. The costumes and sets were pretty decent and these films certainly deliver from the visual perspective, but in terms of the story, it was fairly disappointing. This could have been a lot better looking at how they portrayed each if the different moments in time. As a whole, I do not recommend the watch. I hope Reynolds can step things up if he makes more films in the future.
