The Abyss review
This is an underwater Aliens without the guns and less violent. The picture had so many claustrophobic moments because of the solid acting. The film lacks character development and immediately immerses the action underwater when a crew checks a dilapidated sub. Jammer saw something that was discussed by Virgil "Bud" Brigman (Ed Harris) and Dr. Lindsey Brigman (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio). Effects were magnificent for its time coupled with the majestic score especially when Bud was rescued underwater. Harris and Mastrantonio’s performances were amazing despite some lengthy portions of the film that prolonged the movie. Themes of love, hope, alienists’ and persistence were touched. So many spectacular underwater scenes including suspenseful moments. The Abyss is a sight to behold for aquatic and alien fanatics alike despite its somewhat light confusing plot and descent screenplay. This proves that the director had future plans for greater things.
