Underwater (2020)

dir. William Eubank. Very uneven film, filled with movie cliche’s, that prevent you being emotionally involved in the characters. Some beautiful design work, especially on the futuristic diving suits, they look like something out of Warhammer 40k. Curious that even 41 years after ALIEN (1979), the filmmakers still find a way to get young female engineers into a bra and undies: “Lose your pants. They won’t fit in the suit!” C’mon.
