Too often, moviegoers must choose between character-driven drama and edge-of-your-seat action. "Black Sea" has both, with a gripping performance by Jude Law as their nexus.

Black Sea is a submarine thriller set in the murky depths of exactly where the title says.

By no means a masterpiece, but a solid genre offering, a portrait of desperate men crammed together and surrounded on all sides by what one describes as "dark, cold death." What better way to escape the midwinter doldrums?

I'm something of a sucker for submarine-movie clichs; watching this movie, I was happy the very first time I heard a disconcerting ping.

A contemporary submarine thriller that serves the genre well.

A brutal thriller, and almost a horror film with fear itself a virus. There's a pared-down urgency and realness, even though this is a preposterous tale -- of WW2 Russian gold at the bottom of the Black Sea. With a terrific turn from Jude Law.

I may have seen something like Black Sea a hundred times before, but the elements hold up, stitched this particular way. If every there was such a thing as submarine movie comfort food, it's this.

It is a shame Kelly's narrative clunks and clangs along, because Jude Law is terrific as the salty Robinson.
