One diver soon finds himself on a spectacular odyssey 25,000 feet below the ocean's surface where he confronts a mysterious force that has the power to change the world or destroy it.
Let me just be honest. This very movie has been imitated in SEVERAL shows and films alike - all because it is THAT original. Hats off to Ed Harris and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio and their cast and crew on this one. The movie is awesome and I am glad to say that it's in my top 10 of best films ever made. I wont give away too much but this movie starts out slow. It starts out so slow that it's likely that you'll get bored with it. But I encourage ANYONE - ride it out. This one will definitely have you on the edge of your seat and pushing for the good guys...especially my favorite guy. Virgil Briggman. I think anyone of any age can enjoy this one ... I know I did.
