I’ve found that writing a review for Underwater has been a bit of a challenge. By no means is it a bad film, but it’s not an outstanding film either. The description of “jack of all trades, but master of none” definitely applies with this movie. It’s a science fiction disaster and horror film at both ends of it with the enduring tone of a survival movie throughout. This is one of those films that we’ve all seen before, just not rolled into one. Looking at some other reviews online, you’ll see phrases repeated comparing it to “Alien” and “The Abyss”, and it certainly has those aspects to it.
