The Abyss (1989)

I’m glad the abyss didn’t stare back as I was staring at it. This movie is worth staring at as it has some really good special effects for the late 80’s. I really like this film especially with Ed Harris and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio leading the cast. The underwater scenes are so surreal and as people start acting crazier the movie’s tension factor rises faster than the sea at high tide. I do think the ending was a little weird and underwhelming, Cameron goes for a very anti-war/nukes message that seems forced into an interesting sci-fi story line about the mysteries of our oceans. Get comfortable if you are watching this as it has almost a three hour run-time. It won’t seem that long as you’ll be swept away by the fast moving current of its story.

82/100
