We get the sense that Twohy wants to push this movie to the limits but eases up in the last minutes and tends to resort to old horror clichés...
A subtly eerie mood piece.
| Original Score: 3/4
A well-crafted and criminally underrated Underwater Ghost Story.
| Original Score: 4/5
O roteiro tem sua parcela de furos e absurdos, mas a boa direção de Twohy consegue manter o clima de tensão por boa parte do tempo.
| Original Score: 3/5
An underappreciated little film that would go down well as part of a triple bill on video for some undemanding entertainment.
Half Submarine flick, Half Ghost Story, All in one criminally neglected film
| Original Score: 5/5
Twohy is not only skilled at building and maintaining suspense, he's also aware that a cast chock full of experienced character actors is the right fit for a haunted sub flick.
an exceedingly clever piece of cinema.another great 'what you don't see' is much more terrifying than what you do see thriller, coupled with some arresting effects, incandescent tones and stupendous performances
| Original Score: 3.5/5
The film has enough spooky momentum and good actors to keep it going.
| Original Score: B
Thanks to strong acting and low-key direction, Below stays above water in atmosphere and suspense.
What rounds out the taut WWII terror tale is a more contemporary spin on the paranoia and dehumanization that are the byproducts of war.
Consistently clever and suspenseful.
Gave me the willies.
As underwater ghost stories go, Below casts its spooky net out into the Atlantic Ocean and spits it back, grizzled and charred, somewhere northwest of the Bermuda Triangle.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
There is nothing outstanding about this film, but it is good enough and will likely be appreciated most by sailors and folks who know their way around a submarine.
A crisp psychological drama [and] a fascinating little thriller that would have been perfect for an old "Twilight Zone" episode.
This sub-standard thriller won't float your boat.
| Original Score: 2/4
An enjoyable, if occasionally flawed, experiment.
It's not original enough.
Alive with creepy, menacing flair.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
