Top critical review
Ending Was Ruined
Reviewed in the United States on February 17, 2020
Ok, I watch A LOT of movies and TV. I also give a lot of reviews on products and movies. One thing I warn consumers about are reviews. Reviews are very personal. Never trust one too much. Especially movie.critics who think they are gods over determining which movies are good, bad or ok.
With that said, this movie, Submergence, had so much potential. The ending could have been magnificent, but it was not. It leaves you feeling helpless and curious.
This.could have been so, so good...but it the story-writer got too deep minded and ruined it.
The acting was superb in my opinion. Alicia and James are both top-notch and very believable. I was convinced of James after watching "Split".
Anyway, the movie keeps you guessing what, why and how. It's hard to figure out what the point is. The plot is mainly a love-story where two people with extremely high pressure and vitally important roles...become faced with major dilemmas in their own right. Completely different industries and types of work, yet they are both imprisoned by their surrounding work duties. He is an MI6 agent undercover while she is an ocean biographer of sorts. I'm not even sure I'd recommend it bc of the sad, empty, curious ending that leaves you unfinished in thought.
