Trivia

Norah loses her glasses in that first action beat which suggests her vision is for s*it from that point forward. "This was a point that we brought up, yes." They wanted to keep them on her, but they realized it just wasn't feasible with what was coming including more action and underwater shenanigans in a diving suit. See more »

Goofs

During the opening title sequence a typo can be seen, twice, where a portion of the station blueprints is labelled "BOYANCY COMPENASATORS" See more »

Anxiety level start to finish: 💯
28 March 2020 | by TopDawgCriticSee all my reviews

I'm really shocked the critics slammed this film, and at its low IMDb rating. My blood pressure and anxiety levels were red-zone from start 00:01 to 95:00 ending.

Sure this film was The Abyss meets Aliens with a bit of The Poseidon Adventure, a lot of Pacific Rim and a dash of The Meg, but that's what made it fun! Don't people realize that 99.99% of original film ideas have already been done?

Now add the fact that the two writers and directer are basically newb filmmakers, and were able to put this huge production together... mad respect and props! 🙌

Acting was great with the proper amount of comic relief from the one character, and Stewart nailed her role. Cinematography was excellent, S/VFX outstanding, score on point, pacing amazing, and the 95 min runtime was perfect. I actually wanted more!

Man, people need to chill and research the filmmakers of films, and to see this was a newb production, and give props were due. They have to start somewhere. There's been a ton of garbage out there coming from seasoned filmmakers, so this was refreshingly exciting and entertaining - start to finish.

It's a well deserved 8/10 from me, and if anyone is questioning this review as being fake, click my username to see my 1000+ ratings and 800+ reviews, and read my bio on how to properly rate a film. Then go see this one!
