Story


A suspenseful adventure thriller directed by Academy Award winner Kevin Macdonald, centering on a rogue submarine captain (two-time Academy Award nominee Jude Law) who pulls together a misfit crew to go after a sunken treasure rumored to be lost in the depths of the Black Sea. As greed and desperation take control onboard their claustrophobic vessel, the increasing uncertainty of the mission causes the men to turn on each other to fight for their own survival.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..'Black Sea' runs a few fathoms short of classic status. But its blend of old-fashioned storytelling values and zeitgeisty relevance make it a worthy addition to sub-aquatic cinema's nerve-juddering legacy..”
by Trevor Johnston [Time Out London]
“..Kevin Macdonald makes the most of the claustrophobic setting, the powder-keg atmosphere and the swift, deadly action sequences. Law isn't bad, but ultimately, in a situation like this, he's just too decent..”
by Graham Fuller [NY Daily News]
“..Macdonald has torpedoes of conflict firing in every direction. There is cultural mistrust (Brits vs. Russians), class war (corporate weasels vs. honest workingmen), plus man v. man, man v. nature and man v. his own nature, particularly greed..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
