The divers at 90 meters must breath helium-oxygen mixture instead of normal air, or at least a mixture made of helium-nitrogen-oxygen. This would significantly alter their voice. Normal air at 90 meters leads to oxygen toxicity and furthermore it is impossible to calculate their decompression that should be anyway longer than 200 minutes. See more »
And we want you to know that this has nothing - nothing at all - to do with your performance, which is exemplary by the way.

Look, the business has changed. Marine salvage has changed. We don't need a submarine pilot anymore. We don't even need a sub.

And by "lost loves" I am talking about other submarine movies.
This film is so bad in so many different ways that for a brief moment I was desperate to remember just a single submarine movie that I actually enjoyed.
Then I remembered RED October and scooted over there (on the IMDb) to post a short review of one of the most perfect movies of all time.
So, you see, it IS POSSIBLE to make an entertaining sub movie. This just isn't it.
It is OK for about 20 minutes. Just you think it might actually get interesting, it turns into the one single thing a submarine movie must never ever do -- it turns into a claustrophobic story about a bunch of men who don't like each other but can't leave anyway.
In my review of RED October, I commented that there were effectively no women in the film to counter-balance all that testosterone, and the viewer was too busy being entertained to care.
In this movie, I would have liked to see the Avon Lady knocking on the hatch with her box of samples. At least THAT would have been interesting.
