Movie Review: Open Water
"Open Water" is the story of a couple's struggle to survive when a scuba expedition leaves them behind alone in the ocean. When I saw the trailer, I couldn't help but wonder how the filmmakers could make a compelling feature length film about two people floating in the middle of the ocean. The filmmakers couldn't. While there are a few moments of fear and excitement, I spent most of the film waiting for it to be over. The acting is mediocre at best, and some of the ancillary characters are down right awful. The way the relationship evovles between the stranded couple is formulaic and predictable. Wait for video if you see this movie at all.
