Atlantis Down Reviews
Don't bother watching this steaming turd, it's 90 slow minutes of sheer boredom and by the end frustration.
The sfx are among the cheapest I've seen the story is pointless and the set for the film seems to be a shed, a small wooded area and a dark room with computers.
Although not the worst film I've ever seen Atlantis Down comes pretty close.
The plot is super complex but keeps you nailed to your seat. Great movie!
The story was intriguing and moved at a good pace. The actors did a fine job and I liked the fact that there were some fresh faces in the movie, although I certainly enjoyed the performances from Dean Haglund and Michael Rooker. It was put together well and was a visual feast. The director kind of reminds me of Christopher Nolan when he was getting started. If you like Christopher Nolan movies, you'll like Atlantis Down.
I didn't even know it existed until I read an article of Max Bartoli, the director, on Indieslate (issue #63).
I strongly recommend it.
Atlantis Down nails you to your seat and keeps you thinking for a while after it has ended. Open to multiple interpretations it's a very well done thriller, kind of distant from the typical scifi flick.
CGI shots look good and credible, acting is good and believable. Direction and photography very good.
The movie was cleverly and beautifully shot. The acting of some consumed actors like Greg Travis and Michael Rooker was very solid, others' (Darla Grese and Tony Ware) weaker, but once considered as a whole, the performances of the less experienced actors did not bothered me that much.
After a slow start, the Director did an amazing job of ramping up the suspense and still be able to keep seasoned cinema goers like me constantly wondering what will happen next.
This was an entertaining sci-fi thriller and I did enjoy the pace and the direction the movie was given. The setting felt authentic enough as the story unfolded smoothly with no big narrative holes.
I usually see a movie twice a week in the movie theaters and everyday on Netflix, and this one worked for me.
