Way Beyond the Abyss, as low as you can get.
10 September 2001 | by F1ameSee all my reviews

Oh dear. The process might have been. Lets take The Abyss as a template and substitute all the good stuff for something equally unrealistic, and ditch that cool fantasy stuff for some supposedly scientific plot and take all the emotional moments and replace them with as much forced emotion as possible.

I don't like to refer to things as bad, but when the characters in this movie got all emotional, I had a feeling of 'What?'.

A movie is a piece of art. It has to be crafted to carry an audience on a journey. Like a piece of music. You can just say, now play some piano.. stop, strum that guitar.. now quick bang a drum, some more piano. This ends up a mess.

This film totally failed to captivate me, with either the storyline (which although rather way-out was definitely on the cards if you have a bit of nous), or emotionally. If you found this did capture you, then be very wary of what you watch.
