Underwater | Ratings & Reviews

"Underwater does a lot of things right. And some individual sequences do look astonishing – cinematographer Bojan Bazelli is an industry legend – but this mostly a muddled, rushed and over-complicated thrash at a genre that needs clear and concise storytelling to really work."

"It should not be possible to make K-Stew v. Cthulhu dull to sit through, but these guys seem to have managed it."

FilmInkFilmInk

"In her stoicism and self-sufficiency, Stewart would be well-suited to play the last human being alive — and even Underwater, a hopeless movie for the most part, does at moments convey a comparable poetry of isolation."

Sydney Morning HeraldSydney Morning Herald

"Underwater, it seems, no one can hear you lay waste to the planet for profit."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"Underwater might look on its surface like an Alien retread, but it doesn't dole out the scares in artful, tensely conceived little pieces like that film... It's relentless, and voracious, with a kind of kitchen-sink bravado when it comes to jump scares."

VultureVulture

"It's a challenge to keep action coherent and build suspense in the submerged environment simulated in "Underwater," but Eubank doesn't meet it, instead falling back on stale shocks..."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"What frustrates me most about Underwater is just how very little it brings to the table. It's a solid, competently directed regurgitation of an oft-told tale that never manages to justify its own existence."

The GuardianThe Guardian

""Underwater" is a stupefying entertainment in which every claustrophobic space and apocalyptic crash of water registers as a slick visual trigger, yet it's all built on top of a dramatic void. It's boredom in Sensurround."

VarietyVariety

"An effective sci-fi thriller that acknowledges its inspirations."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"Joining the ranks of Sphere, DeepStar Six and Leviathan as soggy Alien do-overs, Underwater finds a few tweaks to the monster play book, but not enough to make it live."

Empire MagazineEmpire Magazine

"The film is neither a too-big-to-fail event film nor a relatively low-budget genre sleeper."
