In the middle of the South Pacific, a thousand feet below the surface of the water, an alien spacecraft is discovered by the U.S. Navy.

Nothing has prepared them for what will soon be discovered. -- Supercrum

Okay, so I have watched this movie several times. It is one of my all time favorite movies. The acting is superb. The underwater scenes are phenomenal. The plot line is new and refreshing. As always, Michael Crichton is a genius!

Ponderous, verbose sci-fi that entertained me (or rather, I entertained myself) for as long as I was trying to figure out what was going on. There are some nice images and interestingly spooky ideas (such as the unfinished copies of Moby Dick) but the "explanation" is pathetic and the ending a total anti-climax.

I remember reading the book and wanted to like this movie, but it just didn't live up to expectations. Movies based on books rarely do, but this manages to be bland and tries to do too much for its own good.
