Very good film

This is one of those long films you have to watch and wait, but it works thanks to an excellent cast and great visual scenes. It's no spoiler to say it's mainly shot in underwater scenes, an environment which would make most of us uneasy. It's Ridley Scott at his best, take the alien from outer space and place it in the depths of the ocean. Thing is, the alien is not the star of the show, the setting and characters are. The depths of an ocean trench are as cold and scary as outer space, with an ever present natural threat. Only reason I didn't give it 9 or 10, it's USA film demanding happy ever after, no matter how implausible. But that's a personal gripe, it's a very good film, well worth watching.

"The Abyss", directed by James Cameron and starring Michael Biehn, Ed Harris and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, was released in 1989 raking in approximately 55 million dollars in the worldwide box office. "The Abyss" is an underwater thriller, science-fiction and action film which follows a diving team who encounter an alien species. The alien is a pink glow of light which, at first seems quite splendid and alluring, but slowing fades to an awkward "Close-Encounters-of-the-Third-Kind" meets a stingray, which looks poor and disgusting. Due to these awkward designs, the aliens derive from the actual plot of the film and manage to drag out the nonsense for another hour with unlikeable, paper-thin characters.

Speaking of which, the characters are underdeveloped and lack any varying emotions and personalities. Ed Harris, who also performed in "Gravity" (a similar but much better film) does not give a good performance, constantly over-dramatising scenes. His poor performance in this is also due to the terrible, nonsensical script which is painfully long and extremely boring. Despite the extremely poor, lengthy script (but under-developed characters), Michael Biehn, who stars in much better James Cameron films such as "Aliens and Terminator", performs exceptionally as a slowly crazing marine. Unfortunately, Biehn cannot enhance the experience of this film which, despite all other factors, manages to involve terrible choreography and illogical movements.The setting and sets are, in fact, incredible despite useless dialogue and repetitive "I love you" scenes which never fail to get old.

The worst James Cameron film I have ever (and hopefully will ever) witnessed, "The Abyss" is a terrible film plunged into plot convolutions, cringe-worthy choreography and laughable dialogue.

I only just saw this movie because it was directed by James Cameron. I was expecting maybe a little too much, the film was over long and boring. There is not that much too the movie, but it does have a fairly decent story line. Michael Biehn & Ed Harris are both solid in their roles. But the movie overall is a huge disappointment, if you are a James Cameron fan. I would not watch this ever again.
