      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Black Sea may not be particularly deep, but thanks to Kevin Macdonald's judicious direction and a magnetic performance from Jude Law, it remains an efficiently well-crafted thriller.

      Paul Byrnes Sydney Morning Herald Not much of it is credible, starting with the hiring of a rusty submarine out of Sevastopol, but it has action and adventure to burn, leavened with bits of humour. Rated: 3/5 Apr 9, 2015 Full Review Kristin Tillotson Minneapolis Star Tribune Too often, moviegoers must choose between character-driven drama and edge-of-your-seat action. "Black Sea" has both, with a gripping performance by Jude Law as their nexus. Rated: 3/4 Jan 31, 2015 Full Review Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer Black Sea is a submarine thriller set in the murky depths of exactly where the title says. Rated: 3/4 Jan 31, 2015 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review Law’s intensity carries the audience every step of the way. Rated: 3/4 Jul 12, 2022 Full Review Travis Johnson sbs.com.au Black Sea isn't so much a film as a yarn or a ripping tale; one of those classical adventure movies seemingly designed to be viewed on a lazy Sunday afternoon after a big lunch. Oct 27, 2021 Full Review Leo Brady AMovieGuy.com Black Sea is a superbly crafted piece of film. Rated: 3.5/4 Feb 7, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews

      Alec B Despite the solid premise I found the final product somewhat lacking. It teases cynicism from the beginning but delivers cheap sentiment in the ending. Fortunately it does boast enough nail-biting sequences that I ultimately enjoyed it for the most part. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 12/13/23 Full Review matthias s "Black Sea" takes us on a deep-sea adventure that's both thrilling and slightly formulaic. The cast, led by the talented Jude Law, delivers solid performances that keep you engaged throughout. Law's character, a grizzled submarine captain, is a highlight, and his chemistry with the rest of the crew is palpable. One of the film's standout features is its incredible soundtrack. The music sets the tone perfectly, creating an eerie atmosphere that keeps you on edge. As the tension rises, you can't help but get sucked into the undersea world. However, the film does follow some well-trodden paths in the submarine movie genre, making it somewhat predictable. You can almost anticipate the twists and turns as the crew's greed and desperation push them deeper into danger. In the end, "Black Sea" is a good choice for fans of submarine flicks, and it's worth watching for the strong cast and captivating atmosphere. Just don't expect too many surprises along the way. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 11/16/23 Full Review Mark W One of the most intense films I've ever watched. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/07/23 Full Review Graham H A potentially great movie, totally ruined by historical and physical innacuracy. A real shame. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review colin m Drama in the Black Sea. Jude Law, Scottish. Too many of the "dramatic" events were contrived by unsuitable people being present together in the same space and unwilling to cooperate. [Query - I didn't understand, if Jude Law had a survival suit, why he couldn't just escape via the normal exit route?] Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review jose raul b Jude Law makes a great role in this movie. The background story of WWII used as part of the plot was clever. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
