Its blend of old-fashioned storytelling values and zeitgeisty relevance make it a worthy addition to sub-aquatic cinema’s nerve-juddering legacy.

It’s hard to decide if Black Sea is a good idea put over with sub-par execution, or an iffy idea handled as well as possible in the circumstances.

Not much of it is credible... but it has action and adventure to burn, leavened with bits of humour.

Uses the "Das Boot"-like claustrophobia for maximum tension, then deadens the thrills with flashbacks to Robinson and his estranged wife.

A superbly shot men-on-a-mission thriller with chest-tightening tension and a striking contemporary resonance.
