Critic Reviews for Dead Water

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3) | Rotten (5)

  • A tepid VOD-ready melodrama that strikes faint echoes of Roman Polanski's "Knife in the Water" and Phillip Noyce's "Dead Calm" while ponderously padding 60 or so minutes of plot to feature length.

  • Plot twists multiply, turning Dead Water into nothing more than one huge red herring in an attempt to distract viewers from the sorry fact that nothing of substance is really happening.

  • None of the performers are able to bring life to their schematic characters, although Nelson appears to be having fun as a modern-day pirate.

  • ... the filler in between the tension gave time for all of that apprehensiveness to drain away. What's left felt more like an anchor than a buoy.

  • A promising menage-a-trois at sea thriller that sinks more often than it swims
