Retro Review: Below

After the Tiger Shark submarine, U.S.S. Manta mysteriously lost her captain, Lt. Richard Brice must pull his crew together and unravel an eerie mystery to get his crew home alive.

“Below” is one of those films that got lost in the shuffle of theatrical release.

Headlined by sci-fi director David Twohy (Pitch Black), “Below” is one of those films that plays with your mind until the final frame.

It is utterly amazing how involved you can get with this film. Twohy also uses a lot of interesting camera angles to accent the confinement of being in a sub.

Twohy also has a lot of support from character actors Bruce Greenwood and Olivia Williams. “Below” is definitely a gem lost in the sea of video.
