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? Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

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.

Surprisingly Good
12 June 2015 | by chrismackey1972See all my reviews

This was not a movie I was really interested in seeing. Four guys trapped in a submersible bell vehicle during a storm. Sounded like it would be boring. In truth, it wasn't the type of genre I'm interested in. However, they did a very good job.

The acting was awesome, and it seemed realistic as to how people would behave in such a situation. The production value was good, as was the cinematography. It didn't look cheap or CGI to death. The movie did tend to have a claustrophobic feel, as a real life situation would.

There is nudity. The young man is dreaming or having a hallucination, and a girl swims up to him, and she's totally naked, and you see everything.

I recommend this movie. I gave it a 7-star rating. I doubt I'll watch it again, but it was surprising that they did such a good job on the movie.
