I want you to stop me if you have heard this one before. A crew of workers find themselves at work under the sea (insert cave or space whenever), and they encounter a creature unknown to humans who slowly start to kill the workers one by one (add Alien or Life). In case you missed one of those 18,654 movies, you may actually be surprised by Underwater.
Kristen Stewart has tried to break away from the Twilight fame by taking on daring roles like this one. She is the hero here, and it didn’t involve being an angel. Her supporting cast included J.T. Miller and Vincent Cassel, which made me wonder why all three wanted to be apart of the project.
There’s not much to the story, except people think that their exit strategy is better than the others and that never leads to anything good. Faulty equipment and dangerous passages are just cheap tricks to make the audience feel the story is more intense than it actually is. There wasn’t a single moment that I was concerned about the outcome, which obviously was a massive showdown with the creature from under the sea.
The ending was kinda cool, and I liked how the writers really tried to pin all of this stupidity on greedy corporations who don’t care about the warning signs. 3/10
