Highly misunderstood movie

This movie might as well be the most misunderstood one of the century.

It is a well woven fantastic (the literary term) story. If you know what a fantastic story is, then you will appreciate this movie.

(End of movie spoiler alert!) When you arrive at the end of the movie, you continue to ask yourself questions. Have they truly escaped the sphere or are they just caught in it perpetually? Were they really rescued or is that just what they desired and are still caught underwater?

Most people do not seem to understand how great fantastic stories are. Half Light is also another good modern one.

They do not make much of these because people seems to be just too dumb to understand or they prefer quick stories, with lots of explosions and killing or sex and drama, rather than a well woven story like Sphere or Half Light or literary art like La Venus D'Ylle or Axolotl.

The acting in this movie is appropriate, there are rotten tomatoes there. The actors/resses do their job.

This movie is an underdog and highly underrated due to people not understanding the story.

Mankind with Alien Technology

It is 2017 and I'm still discovering movies from the 90's that are worth a peek.

The government has discovered a space craft buried beneath some coral in the Pacific Ocean. The government concludes that this must be an opportunity at alien contact so they grab a team of scientists to make the first contact. Within the crashed vessel they find a shimmering sphere. A few of the scientist decide to enter it and then things get weird.

I liked the cast: Sharon Stone, Samuel L. Jackson, Dustin Hoffman, Liev Schrieber, Queen Latifah et al. The setting was very claustrophobic as they spent the majority of the movie 1000 feet beneath the surface surrounded by water. Once people started being killed by odd creatures it was race to figure out what or who was causing this before they all perished.

This movie was really about man's inability to handle alien gifts/technology. That's a lesson we've learned many times over. The movie got a bit confusing towards the end as they tried to solve the mystery of who/what was the cause of the death and destruction. I felt there were a lot of holes in the movie and it left me a bit unfulfilled.

Some differences from the book and didn't make sense

In the book, we learn what the message decodes to merely from what Harry claims. In this movie, 'My name is Jerry' is actually what's printed on the screen, which isn't realistic. If it were realistic, all of the sentences would be messed up. After getting back from the falling eggs and getting unsuited, Norman states with determination that he wants to talk to Jerry, only to try to explain to him a minute later that the guys and he need some time alone to talk things over while Jerry's adamant to talk.
