|An underwater rescue mission is put into effect to find survivors on a stricken nuclear submarine which went down in unexplained circumstances. During the dangerous operation the crew find more than they expected in the deep abyssal trenches of the Atlantic Ocean.|
Great adventure, albeit a bit long, and with some stand-out scenes.
A negative word has to be said about the treatment of the 2-disc Special Edition DVD from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment: the fuzzy picture resembles nothing much better than a decent bootleg copy; and a non-anamorphic widescreen print as well? However, on the plus side it does contain both the Theatrical and the Special Edition of the film, along with a ton of extras including this brilliant documentary.
The script can be viewed here. (It is also available to read on Disc 2 of the 2-disc DVD).
A Blu-Ray is in the works, we hear...often...
