Have You Seen ‘Underwater’?

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.

  1. I actually saw this with a free GoFoBo pass. I was pretty surprised that I enjoyed a lot of it. There were some memorable scenes in there and Kristen Stewart was pretty effective. I don’t think I would’ve given it a blanket recommendation to general audiences to go see it in theaters, but anyone who’s a sci-fi monster movie fan should check this one out at home. There’s another underwater monster movie from 1989 called Leviathan which got mixed reviews which I never saw but want to get around to checking out soon. And if you never saw 1989’s The Abyss, I highly recommend you check it out (Special Edition version if possible), as it’s a more ambitious and less predictable take on underwater science-fiction.
