The Director of this film made by Johannes Roberts. The quality of his previous work is appalling. Who gave him a 5 million bucks?

The strangeness and the horrors begin with the beginning. We see of the five million dollars is not found the money to buy the heroines have the same wetsuits. Although no, I came early. When I realized that will not empathize with the characters in the definition, because their characters are trying to solve in principle. What is really there that Lisa and Kate are sisters, I learned to the middle of the movie. And they panic. It would seem that here is not right? Yes that the panic instantly stopped, exactly as in an instant start. It is even more annoying.

Situation where the heroine is even more hopeless and frightening than in "the Shallows". It is a pity that attempts rescue — using good luck, erected in the square. Not like what the viewer is held for idiot. Why heroine speak all their actions and thoughts? "There are few air" — this phrase is a hole in the brain is able to penetrate its repetition. The shark turned out lovely, wish a few of them. Camera work of the first half is good. The soundtrack is memorable no.

Actors. Mandy Moore mediocre and ugly replays, and I can do whatever the same for smaller salary. Somehow, I do not name shooting. Claire Holt is playing well, but the great nothing shows.

Thus, the "Blue abyss" — checkpoint horror, lose their potential. I wouldn't spent on your time.

It is human nature, perhaps one of the most essential components that the curiosity of the what is born of the most cognition, allowing the General idea of boundless world where he does exist, but how often is often the knowledge is accompanied by a series of shaped drops, without which has not been any discovery, and possibly preserving the peace originally existed. Deep-sea horror "the Blue Abyss", clearly shows K what can cause careless and reckless zeal to look into the secret...

"The blue Abyss" — it is quite simple with the point of view of visualization and plot of the film tension, this kind of picture — Jaws, "Deep Blue Sea" have long ago showed what actually needs to be natural, the horror, the when in natural course interfere with people. But remarkably, the film has a fairly iconic changing the General mood, when the viewer, while in limbo, along with the main characters absorb the horror near and in a moment it seems that the light that is so close is able to be extinguished, and now again comes the deep darkness that still has the end of the opportunity to breathe the air and to save his life, in this case, the film-makers managed to immerse the viewer in water vortex where crashing waves to the end give rest.

Despite quite emotionally expressed by the component, the picture in some extent, not had a pretty sharp end, impending doom... then the finish would be more resistant and memorable, and this history is a familiar path of classic complete like the kind of movies where the estimated final expected.

"the Blue Abyss" — it is interesting that noteworthy — not tight and not least, a tense film in which the horror of demonstrative and very real that can not to excite, after all, what the secret of water depth is truly frightening, and still then, existing in this world as a reminder that life is the most valuable thing is not as mediocre to dispose of intruding where so long dormant evil...

The theme itself is beautiful and danger of the ocean attracts me already for many years, starting with viewing the low-budget "Open sea" made almost solo Chris Certicom. Who could be said, but such work at times to make far more complicated, and attract the attention of the audience to the screen harder: you need to submit a good idea, to give the film the desired, smooth atmosphere for full immersion (atmosphere here — success). With times 2003 (when and was released on tape Kentish) came not much like: the sequel, filmed in 2009 not justify the hopes and here "Drift" (the project of Hans horn, released in 2006 — om) was able to give a positive impression. Now, many Directors left the ocean, renting a movie on earth: the genre of "survival" has evolved and went "on the land", it becomes with each passing year stronger and more stable as a quality and duties. And with the earth even moved to space ("gravity", which became a sensation), so what's ocean. But only now, in 2016 — the year on the screens out "Fear of depth" — Thriller Johannes Roberts, on where he will be discussed.

Sisters Kate and Lisa are resting in Mexico. Determined to get rid of any thoughts to immerse yourself in present, full of adrenaline, the adventure, they accept an invitation to fall in an iron cage in the heart of the ocean, where can enjoy only for a good view, but and incredibly close to see white sharks. On along the way Lisa is stalking a strange sense of mischief, — sister is constantly trying to relieve it from all daily. Once in place, Kate and Liz are immersed in depth 20 meters, preparing to observe the sight. Feeling one of the sisters is incredibly strong, when the cable breaks and the cage falls on the bottom height of entire 47 metres. Coming to myself sister try to find a chance to get out for the way to the top if not will cause the death of the sharks, it will easily cause the bends, and stay here, they be deprived of oxygen...

After his last failure "On the other side of the door" Director Johannes Roberts is not particularly inspire confidence at all. We can say that with a new ribbon, the Briton was able to gain the necessary momentum, slightly rehabilitated. A film is not very bad quality and atmospheric. Perhaps, of the entire list of works, "Fear of depth" can be called the best on this moment. Interest in viewing will not out as the atmosphere, they come with the end only when the screen goes off. The cell is like a grave, and ocean — 47 meters of land that separates the heroes from air, which each breath becoming less and less. Thus, there was some deep-sea version of the "Open sea" made as a chamber Thriller in a confined space. Good job Director. Scenario same Roberts his faithful companion Ernest Riera so has the desired components to create an atmospheric Thriller. Is the idea (albeit not so new), there are few heroes that I feel, and there is a situation that simply must be experienced. Agree, once in this story will definitely be the blood freeze in his veins. Not without problems:

A) Oxygen. The heroines too often use the air by controlling it, at this, the remaining 25 percent they well not have lived even up to the middle of events.

B) It commenting on own actions (God, I could get all the air out). It is not how much less, how much is a bit annoying, the audience and he can guess, his eyes he has.

The ending, on the surprise is done perfectly. Not a great unexpected twist adds the right atmosphere, dynamics, playing with the nerves as not only heroes, but and imbued with the atmosphere of the audience. Neatly done sharks, due to problems with resources, huge fish typically the shadows, showing in all its glory rare, but accurately (not visible jambs with special effects). Good, confident work of Mark silk, who became a full-length debut. The picture is dark, colorful. The operator is not lazy, carefully guide the camera on important aspects not really. Bright made dynamic scenes (this is a shark attack, the last ten minutes). In the desired tempo running Duo of Tomandandy". Good music, especially memorable is a dynamic composition in the stage replacement of the cylinder, the final, where of — the depths of the ocean, the moment seeps beam hope.

To rant about the actor work — the main characters here only two actors (including Liz and Kate) only seven. More and unnecessary similar stories of the genre. I want to praise Mandy Moore and Claire Holt for a very natural game. Let the film was shot at least in the ocean, though in some pool of the Studio, the actress has not played a realistic joke, showing his heroines more alive. Looking at the game of this duet, the viewer begins to get lost in the mysteries of thinking about the final if they survive? And might make it one? And can not one? All this engenders intrigue in the project. All the other actors (Matthew Modine, Yani Gelman, Santiago Seguro, Chris Johnson) can be seen only on a few minutes in the first part of the film, because most part of it will be possible to hear only the voice Madina giving advice to survive. So that it is possible to estimate only the acting Duo playing Moore — Holt.


"Fear of depth" — is very bad design with its essence and morality, though not completely original script, but a catchy atmosphere created by Director, cinematographer and composers. Actors only reinforce the desired effect, making the intrigue lives up to the final minutes. I like the fan of this genre, painting Roberts were able to give more positive emotions, to pass the extra 90 minutes. To recommend the draft is difficult, because not everyone is ready to estimate the dignity. I will say this, like "the open sea" or something like that? You can evaluate. Fans of the cast can also to climb on Board. All the rest — on their own.

Thank you for attention!
