Quotes

[first lines]
Liam: And we want you to know that this has nothing - nothing at all - to do with your performance, which is exemplary by the way.
Captain Robinson: [sighs looking out the window]
Liam: Look, the business has changed. Marine salvage has changed. We don't need a submarine pilot anymore. We don't even need a sub. Now, you've never been on contract, so redundancy, well, it's out of the question. But I spoke to Bob Toris personally and he has insisted that Agora make sure that there's something for you.

This is a great suspenseful film.
23 March 2015 | by John_KamperSee all my reviews

A man with nothing left to lose, captains a mixed crew of low lives and scum bags with mixed agendas and open hatred for one another, also whom half speak Russian, the other half, British English, add some "lost in translation"-esque moments, a bit of confusion, trust issues, a banker type whose job it is to ensure company interests are kept afloat (pun intended), add some lost Nazi Gold as the prize, some major plot twists and you have yourself a brew for disaster.

This film is brilliant. A great story, an awesome cast and suspenseful storytelling. Had me interested from the get go. Character goals, flaws and needs are clear, we can sympathize with the hero and his reasons for wanting to succeed, even when his crew start turning on one another and questioning his leadership. The films asks us some interesting questions in simple Human psyche. It also explores some of our most basic instincts when our survival is at stake. Do we stick together as a team in trying to succeed for a better life, or does one disband from the group to save ourselves? A claustrophobic and riveting film. The ending had me smiling as it was well executed and leaves one satisfied.

GREAT FILM. Bravo!
