Overall Underwater is an exciting and entertaining film though it is also ironically very wishy washy in it’s premise, and though it seems to have a narrative, it loses its own footing as it delves deeper into its own story, leaving me as a viewer uncertain of where we started, where we were going, and where we ended.
In terms of a thriller movie, overall it wasn’t that bad at all. It did have it’s scares, and it does have its thoughtful moments, but it is laden with tropes and unnecessary moments along with unnecessary characters.
I am not sure if overall the point of this movie was pro-enviornmentalism, or pro-humanity, or love conquers all, or what, but there are several not hard to see messages that are spoon-fed to the viewer as the movie drudges on. The downside is none of these messages are driven home as characters often mention things and do things that turn out to be completely pointless later on in the film.

One character even utters something along the lines of “… this is the earth fighting back. We don’t belong down here…” As if to envoke a sense of man vs nature and nature will always prevail sort of ideology, the main character confirming her co star’s view with a firm and uncontested “She has a point.”
However, by the end of the film our protagonist is blowing monsters away Ripley style in her mech suit. So what is it? The monsters are just defending their home that we’re rudely entering?
Or is the film more about always supporting each other, as one of the final survivors of the film had contributed to all but 3 other character deaths, and became literally incapacitated less than a quarter way through the protagonist’s journey and had to be dragged for the latter portion by the survivors. There is after all a message sewn into the film’s beautiful cinematography (will touch on that soon) that pushes the idea of the “Buddy System” after all. But, who really knows? This film sure doesn’t.
Outside of the glaring problems with the story, the actors ALL did a phenomenal job and we’re exceptionally believable in their roles. At times our lead actress was slightly overselling her stress, and underselling her terror, but in a sense the film does allude to a bit of psychological disfunction from being “Underwater” *roll credits* for so long, so perhaps that’s where some of the detachment came from?
Aside from this though, even the film”s score was well placed and atmospheric. Much of the background noise was filled by high synths and aquatic rumblings, which fit perfectly in the deep sea tale. Furthermore, the creatures noises were very creepy and set the tone well for a believable deep sea monster without being too “Godzilla Kaiju” like, though we do get a bit of that later on.Underwater 2020 Movie.
The organization behind the Roebuck Drilling I feel should have far more backstory than the exposition given through flashes of newspaper clips we don’t have the time to read when adjusting the reclining seats and choosing the hole our cups will go into when we get in the theatre. A slower pace and a bit more showing rather than telling would have done this film wonders as it truly does have an interesting story to tell, and has an incredibly talented group of actors on board to help tell it.
Underwater gets a solid 6/10 from me as while I was floored by the incompetency of some of the film, I was unable to peel my eyes away from it for 99% of the experience.Underwater 2020 Movie.
Not the greatest film to start the year off with, but certainly won’t disappoint anyone looking to be thoroughly entertained and thrilled for a few hours.
