The Abyss [1989]

“When it comes to the safety of these people, there’s me and then there’s God, understand?”.

Exciting underwater adventure about a diving team that encounters an alien aquatic species while searching for a lost nuclear submarine. Ed Harris leads a solid cast in this incredibly entertaining movie from writer/director James Cameron. There’s plenty to enjoy here; great sets, first rate action scenes, and an edge of your seat finale (though the ending left me wanting more). Hang on! Note: Extended edition runs 171 mins.

Fun fact: “Cast members had to become certified divers before filming began”.

 Rating: 3.5/4
