The Abyss

Film, 1989

The Abyss is a whimsical thriller from the Steven Speilberg era of science-fiction. It’s totally serviceable if that’s what you’re in the mood for, but doesn’t demand to be seen if you’re not. Loses it’s way when it forgets about the science fiction elements for a good long while, but more than picks them up again at the end. It’s rock solid premise is intriguing, but it doesn’t really do much with it other than stage action sequences. I hear the director’s cut is a vast improvement over the original version. 3
