Black Sea

Critics Consensus

Black Sea may not be particularly deep, but thanks to Kevin Macdonald's judicious direction and a magnetic performance from Jude Law, it remains an efficiently well-crafted thriller.

The caper? Nazi gold on the bottom of the ocean. Nothing new there, but everything is done competently in this submarine treasure hunt, except for a couple of plot curiosities. Definitely fun, with a premium performance from Jude Law.

When it comes to submarine films, nothing will ever top Das Boot, of course. But this is a fresh, very worthy attempt to mix the intense underwater situation with a Dirty Dozen-like treasure hunt. To add human interactions to the list of technical difficulties to deal with is making the film almost unbearably exciting at times. Good acting, interesting characters, very grounded and pessimistic story and great direction: overall a very entertaining and engaging thriller.

It's "Das Boot" -- but less hopeful.

An average underwater thriller. The performances outweigh the storyline.
