Underwater monster movies essentially relocate the plot of Alien to the ocean’s depths, and this one pits the crew of a deep-sea mining operation against an angry leviathan.
Underwater doesn’t waste time with character introductions and exposition; the viewer – and the cast, led by Kristen Stewart in Ripley mode – is immediately thrown into the deep end when an earthquake threatens the structural integrity of a sea-base, and escape becomes imperative. The surviving crew must suit up and take a perilous stroll across the sea floor to the drill site, where escape pods – and a hungry creature – are waiting in the murk. A glossy, big budget thrill ride featuring some tense and terrifying set pieces, Underwater will satisfy fans of this sub-genre, while introducing it to a whole new generation.
