Brilliant film
21 November 2016 | by chuckhundredSee all my reviews

Utterly gobsmacked at the depth (no pun intended) of the story line. Don't want to spoil anything but the story was solid and immersive throughout. Special effects were far better than I expected from a Syfy attempt and at times had to remember this was a movie.

Brandon Auret and Stephanie Beran had real chemistry and delivered a real powerful performance throughout (why no Oscar nominees?). I love it when I pick up a movie expecting a bit of mindless hum-drum and get hit with this kind of quality.

A true masterpiece, I won't be swimming in the ocean any time soon.

If I could give this 11 stars I would, loved it!
