Underwater (2020), you guessed it, takes place underwater in a drilling facility. While this is at the bottom of the ocean, I couldn’t help but think at times that I was watching an Alien remake with Kristen Stewart instead of Sigourney Weaver.
I empathized with the trepidation the characters felt of getting out of the falling apart facility, but after a while, I was like, OK, what are they going to do to them next. The best parts were when the creatures were attacking them. Otherwise, there wasn’t much to the story besides survival.
I didn’t feel a connection to the characters like I do in other films of this type (like Alien), and when it came to a close, I wasn’t sure how I felt about what I saw. So as I do when this happens, I ponder the film for a few days before writing anything about it. Unfortunately, I still have no opinion on Underwater. It’s not the worst and definitely not the best I’ve seen.
I gave Underwater 2.5 out of 5 Stars.
