Storyline

Five years ago, expert sea diver and Naval Captain Jonas Taylor encountered an unknown danger in the unexplored recesses of the Mariana Trench that forced him to abort his mission and abandon half his crew. Though the tragic incident earned him a dismissal from service, what ultimately cost him his career, his marriage and any semblance of honor was his unsupported and incredulous claims of what caused it - an attack on his vessel by a mammoth, 70-foot sea creature, believed to be extinct for more than a million years. But when a submersible lies sunk and disabled at the bottom of the ocean - carrying his ex-wife among the team onboard - he is the one who gets the call. Whether a shot at redemption or a suicide mission, Jonas must confront his fears and risk his own life and the lives of everyone trapped below on a single question: Could the Carcharodon Megalodon - the largest marine predator that ever existed - still be alive - and on the hunt?

I Swear
29 December 2019 | by axmwxuSee all my reviews

This film is about a shark supposedly but we see so little of it.

As for the her he is the cliched drunkard getting over tragedy type.

As for the women: it mostly happens underwater so there is very little of them too. There is a girl she is too young. There is a woman who is slim and not tattooed so we should be interested in her... right? Wrong. Her father and daughter are in the room.

3/10
