Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

The Abyss (1989)

Directed by James Cameron

Starring Ed Harris, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Michael Biehn, Leo Burmester


Fantastic effects, would be awesome on the big screen. I think the story would be a bit better if there was a little more development of the human/alien relations, but maybe that was part of the script that was cut from the already long screenplay.

In a way, the story has a lot in common with Crimson Tide. Both are about submerged vessels that lose contact with their commanders on the surface.

According to Drew Casper, a combination of Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Jaws, Alien, Aliens, and 2001: A Space Odyssey.
