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?

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.

increases the pressure all through...
25 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

This is an unknown film with not such good reviews from audiences and critics alike. But I watched it because I like locked room stories/mysteries, and the fact that it was set hundreds of feet under water, where the pressure is tremendous and oxygen only what you find in your deep sea diving suit and the submarine pod, made it a must watch for me.

This is a locked room suspense, submarine movie. Unless the characters behave stupidly and start killing each other, I don't think anything can go wrong with such a story.

And I was right. Right from the get go, this took me with the deep sea divers down under water, and kept me there.

In a way I was stuck with them, trapped with them, and wanted to see what will happen next.

The basic plot is four deep sea diver are sent in a small pod to fix an oil pipeline on the sea bed. It's a high risk job as a storm is brewing in the skies. Soon they find themselves trapped underwater and retreat into the small submarine/pod which has only so much oxygen for them. So as the characters are trapped they understand, the lesser the number of characters alive, the more the oxygen for them.

So if the other trapped character was to die in an accident they would be able to live longer! But what happened next wasn't what I was expecting. It's certainly not about characters killing each other. Instead the second half of the movie is thrilling and emotional as we begin to root for the characters and want them to come out of this dire situation alive!

It may not be a big blockbuster, it may not have A list actors, it may not be factually correct about deep sea diving, but it is certainly a good story, with an edge of the seat climax! Rarely does a film take you away from your comfortable chair, and comfortable life and transport you into a different, dangerous, unknown, unseen world. This is one of them. In spite of the flaws, this is a must watch for the setting, suspense and the story.
