In the Somalia coast, the veteran divers Engel, Mitchell, Hurst and the rookie Jones are assigned to repair an oil pipeline on the bottom of the sea by the Vaxxilon representative Karsen. They are advised that a storm is coming, but the Diving Support Vessel Lorimer lowers the bell with the team. They succeed to weld the pipeline but the storm comes and the vessel sinks, killing the whole crew. Short of the oxygen, the divers try to communicate with the surface and the leader Mitchell keeps the hope that they will be saved. But will the oil company send another vessel to rescue them?

SAT Divers breath Heliox which replaces the Nitrogen content with Helium. One of the effects experienced is an increase in the pitch of the voice and sounding like 'Donald Duck' See more »


Engel: A man goes to sea for many reasons. Perhaps to sense its beauty and stare at the infinite horizon that offers no questions, seeks no answers. Perhaps to stand in awe of its power, savagery, grace. This is all true, but there are also those who go to sea ultimately because they are lost and never want to be found.

I would never put in a thing like that
5 September 2016 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

I thought the movie was better then some of the reviews on IMDb make you think. Okay it might be boring for someone who expect to see a lot of action and a lot of different locations but the story is about men trapped in a small pod underneath the ocean so you can't expect anymore then that. To me it's all about the suspense that you get by watching their desperation and the way they try to find a solution to get them out of this very bad situation. And the least you can say is that they acted well. I could feel the claustrophobia, the anguish and despair. There's absolutely no way I would ever put a foot in one of those pods. So to me it was a better movie then I expected. It might not be the greatest in this genre but it certainly did the job to keep me entertained on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
