De Armas behaves as if she’s in some saucy cologne commercial, and Affleck appears to have necked a hundredweight of Percocet before the cameras rolled.

Stubbornly and knowingly unsexy...

The film is hindered by lacklustre direction and a script barely willing to scrape the surface of what could have been an intense, psychosexual exploration of masculinity, morality and marriage.

Lyne’s a talented enough director to keep us invested, even in the film’s lunatic last third.

Most remarkable about Deep Water is the fact that beyond being a sexy and gruesome thriller, it is also an absolute riot.

After a dangerous, even personal, first half, Deep Water becomes crude in all the wrong ways.

Deep Water isn't really thrilling or erotic, but it accomplishes a kind of diagonal camp sincerity...

For the first time in a long time, (Lyne is) enjoying his characters’ awfulness rather than damning them for it.

Deep Water shows that (Lyne) hasn’t lost his touch.

For a stylish thriller to work, it needs to be at least a little bit stylish and offer an occasional thrill. Deep Water does neither.
