Jude Law completes with Black Sea his transformation into one of the UK's most imposing screen presences. This, we were not expecting. What next? Ray Winstone, now out of a job, auditioning for Alfie 2?
While "Black Sea" physically dives deep, the story is shallow, the character's motivations are irrational and the drama is forced. The star of the film is the old, rickety submarine and the tension only she provides.
Black Sea is a perfectly dutiful, professional piece of work, with several creditable performances, but it's the sort of movie that doesn't have quite enough of any one thing going for it that might eclipse its influences.
The story loses credibility as it goes along, as the body count escalates, and Robinson's solutions to life-and-death crises grow increasingly far-fetched. Well before it ends preposterously, "Black Sea" has taken leave of its senses.
