In fact as advertising campaign "Black water" focused on the reunion of the stars "Universal soldier" Jean-Claude van the Damme and Dolph Lundgren, the Swedish action hero has a more significant role in the picture. And not the only disappointment, because it does not so much has changed in 26 years: the tandem still wants to kick butt to the nose of the foe. In the rest "Black water" panders to the typical rhythms of the Thriller category B, seeking to create tensions that, however, is impossible in the story of the rogue of the CIA.

ZHKVD in "Black waters" submitted by the intelligence agent who's looking for a leak in their organization. The hero was framed and sent the lair of "dark operatives" — submarine. Lundgren also in the form of the mysterious German spy by Marco is the name of the hero ZHKVD friend and cell mate. Soon the couple is challenging the government forces and the plot holes.

The script, which seems to be based on escape characters, often focuses on tracing the relationship of various groups. Here and the security team submarine, a prison, and hero ZHKVD with its background, and the agents of rogue States and etc. Not forget the unfortunate crew and Marco. This glut not working. Endless flashbacks make with mind do not allow to concentrate on one thing.

"Black water" has a duration of 105 minutes and the most insane in terms of plot scenes decided not to expose the ruthless pruning. The Director is clearly hoping for strong characteristics ZHKVD and Lundgren, who, despite its texture, yet somehow inflate what is happening. Have in mind that never believe they, well, because they are obvious actors. I think if their characters over a good story or less known actors for these roles, you would is the effect conceived by the Director. And in the moments when the story reaches a predictable twist, then I like puzzly shrug: let the debutant Director and copes with gunfights and fisticuffs, opening in action potential van Damme, is up to something clever in terms of plot he still far away. Especially considering the fact that action, despite its the drive, not possess a variety of fighting are in one same the narrow corridor.

The most serious problem of "Black water" is that no one, even a kind of the good guys, not know what happens. Sometimes the desire to bring down with good character and accordingly, the viewer goes to the tapes in plus, but not this case. The world created by the writers, in the framework of Aqua prison full of torture, unrecorded interrogations and other unpleasant things that a little belittles the personality of the protagonist, who himself of the gang operatives. This story is about won't make sense, because, well, he obviously fictional. A given the fact that the creators do not managed to convey the claustrophobic atmosphere of "Submarine" or"Crimson tide", then and the main feature with a place of action is not really works.

The desire of the creators to create a new version of "under siege" is more or less clear for viewing, but this tape is not have faith in its written on the paper world, relying on other outdated today the scenario elements. To the moment when the hero Lundgren escapes from the casemates, the potential for a claustrophobic Thriller disappears and remains only the battle on the Cam. The writers are ready to defend their offspring and several features of the storyline may please fans, but "Black waters" contain so many tricks to keep her attention focused on the dealer slaps van Damme.

Regardless of in some movies for the legend, the appearance of them on the screen, the viewer who grew up on the films of the 80's and 90's, sure to be pleased. And Jean-Claude van Damme, and Dolph Lundgren, and a number of other celebrities are currently involved in more low-budget projects that are a party large screens. However, these guys left in the film industry's iconic track, which can't take calculation do not view their new work.

The Duo van damn — Lundgren, appeared in 1992 "Universal soldier", and then in several other films, was once again in in "Black waters" — spy Thriller about a secret agent trying to bring the traitor in the ranks of the CIA to clean water. By the way, the film's title has a double meaning: you can think about the pond, where is a submarine, and how to convict the traitor and take it from the turbid/black water on the net...

Certainly a major plus of the film I think the part in this Jean-Claude van the Damme and Dolph Lundgren, who despite the age still keep myself in great physical shape and ready to give odds to any young actor in terms of melee skills or something like that.

But as for the cons — them be more. Here and weak plot with not less sagging dialogues, performed at the level: — "We need to get out damn submarines!", — "Okay, let's do it!", — "how we get out?", — "Just go forward".

The design of the submarine looks very very strange. Yes, she is presented to the viewer as a floating secret prison, but still we cannot ignore the laws of physics acting on the depth. Construction of submarines is not imply a large space for movement of man, but in this submarine, you can at least head to dance and to walk, not even ducking. The bridge, the impression, made up of that was under hand of the Director. Complex submarine equipment, including life support systems, navigation, tracking, communications, and everything else fit here on a couple of control panels and the periscope. In short, part of the scenery "Black water" was disappointing.

Same can about the acting of the secondary characters, which play on the level of soap operas and trying to be too artsy and pretentious, catching the shadow of excessive brutality on his characters. Shooting and fight — another item that raises many questions and they (the questions) pertain more to the operator of the movie (aka Director) and stunt Director. These the episodes are edited in such a way that gets a kick an opponent, only after a moment realizes that he punched, and the one who was shot, after a moment, realizes that it was time to move the horses. In other words, the action-scenes of "Black water" is not have enough speakers so they looked spectacular and has caused a minimum of censure.

However, to watch You. Your opinion is not impose.

Nice view.

Jean Claude van dam — my childhood idol, so many great spectacular movies has been removed from his participation in the late ' 80s and throughout the 90-ies and very sad to see how your idols lost its former glory and popularity, but now it's not about it.

First reading the announcement on the movie was delighted not only van Damme, but Dolph Ludgren, which is also known as van Damme was at the peak of popularity in the past, although he has now been removed in low-budget films (waiting for it in the sequel "creed 2"), but alas Dolph was undeservedly little in the movie, despite that it appears the beginning of the film all the character (a German spy Marco) in the a considerable share of humor, although I wanted to see him more hard, brutal and with expanded screen time, but still it Duo, van Damme looked organically, despite the small number of joint scenes. Notable for the fact that not their first collaboration. To that they appeared in the legendary the best version of "Universal soldier" in 1992 in the sequel to "Universal soldier" and the well-known "the Expendables 2" (2012). Note Patrick Kilpatrick, who starred with van Damme in the movie "the Order to death", 1990.

Well as far as the film itself-I became a judge this film very strictly, because made in style fighters 1980-1990, shootouts, the fight scenes showed character, van the Damme indestructible, which the work is cut with their enemies, to acting the game, no complaints, at least it was obvious that van Damme tries for his game was not boring to watch. Really want to filmography van Damme added more strong fighters.

in the conclusion - no no negativity to this film, this film will be useful for single view, fans of van the Damme is also recommended, it is a pity that Dolph Lundgren movie wasn't enough. Well and a separate ball out of respect to legends Jean-Claude van the Damme and Dolph Lundgren!
