Storyline

Day, an insecure art director of a commercial production company is left alone to clear up a 6-meter deep deserted pool after the shooting. He falls asleep on an inflatable raft due to an unbearable fatigue. When he wakes up again the water level has sunk so low that he cannot climb out of the pool on his own. He screams for help but the only thing that hears him is some creature from a nearby crocodile farm.

Murphy's Law; - level 1.000
15 April 2019 | by CoventrySee all my reviews

We all know the so-called "Murphy's Law", stating that if something CAN go wrong, it WILL go wrong. We also all know this is one of the rare theories in life that is actually truthful, but the good Thai people with unpronounceable names who made "The Pool" perhaps pushed the theory of "Murphy's Law" a bit too far over the edge. The series of misfortunes, unlucky coincidences, malaises and stupidities that overcome lead characters Day and Koi in this film are too numerous and exaggerated to believe, but admittedly they also do ensure a very intense, fast-paced and action-packed thriller. Because of a bit of bad luck and a lot of dumbness, set decorator Day gets trapped inside of a massive but isolated 6-meter deep exterior pool while the water is slowly clearing away. Due to even more dumbness, his fiancée Koi gets trapped in there too, with a serious head injury to boot! If you can accept that people built 6-meter-deep pools without bothering to install ladders, I'm sure you can also suspend your disbelief for the non-stop series of unfortunate events that follow. The fun is complete when a savage crocodile, at large due to the heavy rainfall and floods of recent weeks, accidentally falls into the pool as well. Yes, "The Pool" often is laughably far-fetched, but it's also very suspenseful, compelling and exciting. The crocodile is a fabulous work of craftmanship; - realistic and genuinely menacing. For an action/thriller with such a rudimentary premise, limited cast and minimal set-pieces, it's entertaining & recommendable.
