  • Underwater's strong cast and stylish direction aren't enough to distract from the strong sense of déjà vu provoked by this claustrophobic thriller's derivative story.

    Underwater does a lot of things right... but this mostly a muddled, rushed and over-complicated thrash at a genre that needs clear and concise storytelling to really work.
