In fact the action doesn't even really start until an hour into the film.

REVIEW - BLACK WATER

2 of the most famous action / martial arts stars team up for this, what promises to be an all action 90+ minutes of fights.

But........

The film credits for the 2 stars in this film are impressive beyond belief, with every film from Rocky to Timecop being a fight and action master class, unfortunately this film doesn't even come close to any of the previous films made by Van Damned or Lungdren.

In fact the action doesn't even really start until an hour into the film.

Most disappointing of all was the poor screen time Lungdren had, only really coming into the mildly interesting story very late into the film itself.

Without trying to give too much away, correct me if I and wrong, but a submarine is basically a long tin can which goes underwear and usually comprises of one central long corridor with rooms to the bow, stern, port and starboard.

The sheer amount of gun fire being exchanged! Enough said.

Mildly interesting story, poor action, shoddy submarine and honestly not their best by far.
