Basically 'DIE HARD' but during the flood of the century. It's certainly a unique setup. Morgan Freeman is watchable as always as the lead bank robber trying to retrieve a hidden cache of millions.

After a while though, the movie runs out of ideas for having action scenes on or under water.

Unfortunately, as the plot gets more and more preposterous it gets harder and harder to care and by the end I'd lost all interest.
