Critic Reviews for The Surface
This is the sort of film where you enjoy the cast even though the running time becomes a bit of a snore.
"The Surface" has such fine performances in it from Mulkey and Astin that you wish the filmmakers had trusted them more, letting them bring the film back to shore on their own.
The film is a true two-hander-and Astin and Mulkey are mostly up for the task-but inept storytelling sinks the picture faster than anyone can bail it out.
Audience Reviews for The Surface
A few touching scenes and nice music, but mostly poor acting, wooden dialogue, and unintelligent. The trailer stitches every tiny action clip together to make a drama seem like a thriller, and there is no tense storm rescue like in the cover pic. There's not even a storm! Dishonest cover pic and dishonest trailer. The trailer doesn't even mention the main theme of the movie - dealing with personal crisis. There are no 'worst fears' confronted as in the description and no struggle to survive. They sit in a boat talking on calm water for less than a day with plenty of food and water, even alcohol. Lazy movie-making and dishonest hype.
