Computer tech Norah Price (Kristen Stewart) got unwanted change from her isolated grind at a subsea research station--courtesy of an earthquake that caused a catastrophic breach. She, as well as the handful of other survivors, faced a mile's trek in pressure suits across the ocean floor to safety ... and they'd discover to their terror that they weren't alone.

Kind of Alien + kind of Abyss or some other underwater disaster film I've seen + kind of Pitch Black. Kristen Stewart has kind of started to learn to emote. The film has some other B-string actors I recognize from a few films and faces I'm unfamiliar with. They carried it, I thought the film was fairly cool as a sci-fi / action / disaster / monster / survival film. It moves along and the tech looks good.

Kristen Stewart has another impressive performance in this movie. She has really improved from her Twilight days and given a few more movies, she'll be top notch. This is both an action movie and a monster movie, but it comes together nicely. The cinematography is wonderful, but at times it was too dark to see much. There was action from the first moment with no character development and even though there were a few minor flaws, tension builds to the ambitious ending. We enjoyed this movie.

This was a pretty good movie. It definitely slowed too much in the second act, but picked up again. Too dark for my taste - watching it at home, not one the big screen, I'm sure we miss some of what we're supposed to be seeing in the "almost-reveals" of the monster(s) because it is so dark (they are at the bottom of the ocean - not a sunny tropical island). The story was good, the acting decent enough - and there were a lot of spots where it kept me in suspense, and the resolution of the story was satisfying for me as well.
This movie definitely could have been a home-run suspense film, but it fell short of that. Good enough to watch though, IMO.

Organically and infinitely sleep inducing,despite the fact that i really tried my greatest to stay awake.It features 2 attractive actresses,but even they couldn't keep me awake with almost no clothes on.The Covid-19 "Plandemic" fearmongering in real life is scarier than this derivative science-fiction thriller will ever be,even if you're watching it on a home theater system.

Surprisingly great horror thriller. Gets straight to the point with it's personal mix of Alien, the Abyss, and Lovecraft. Very fun.

Good sets and special effects in the opening, but wooden acting and a terrible, predictable script lifted from similar, better done movies. Yawn. I had to skip forward a lot.

Very average horror/thriller film. Worth a watch if nothing else is available but don’t go out of your way. Although, I always like Kristen Stewart and I still think she did a good job here with very limited material. And trust me, the (pretty minor) spoiler from the plot description (which is not explained at all in the movie, so must be some sort of insider joke, and really doesn’t matter to the plot) would not be harmed by anything man-made!

Murky water..murky camera.. m.j urky story stolen from alien and others makes this a murky and quite boring film..huge disappointment and complete waste of time..honestly even on bluray this film is barely able to be watched..its one thing to leave things up to viewer its another to make it so frustratingly bland and murky that it's a chore to TRY to feel part of..

I liked this movie. YES, it follows Alien theme. Kristen Stewart was fun to watch, talented actress. Good scary predictable movie with a few few sarcastic scenes along the way.
