I love a good creepy thriller akin to the likes of Alien and Underwater, with its unoriginal storytelling, is basically Aliens underwater. But unlike Aliens it gets to the action instantly, a twist that surprised me in a good way.
As I watched the film with its hour and a half runtime, I was blown away by how riveted I was. The adversaries apprehending the characters were legitimately terrifying and the ending left me nodding with mild appreciation. Underwater is a film heavily based on the storylines of other greater films that have come before it but manages to be entertaining all the same.
Characters perish, there’s a bunch of screaming, I jumped quite a few times, and for once, the designs of the creatures in the film were legitimately terrifying.
No, Underwater is no masterpiece but it was very enjoyable throughout. I’ll give it 4 out of 5 stars and 93 out of 100.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.
