Film and television reviews by our resident autistic film critic Maymay. Maymay had the opportunity to take part in an interview with Kevin Macdonald, the director of Black Sea which can be read here.
In order to make good with his former employers, a submarine captain takes a job with a shadowy backer to search the depths of the Black Sea for a submarine rumored to be loaded with gold.
It was a really well done submarine movie. I liked how Jude Law’s character, Captain Robinson, was very fatherly towards Tobin, and was kind and encouraging to him. When there was so much anger, he was protective of Tobin. I liked that. I liked that they made Jude Law Scottish instead of British. I liked his accent. It was cool. I didn’t like that the only American in the whole movie was really mean. I did think someone was going to get eaten by a shark, but there wasn’t a shark in the movie.
I learned a lot about submarines, and found it interesting. I never knew that when the lights on a submarine explode it can cause a fire. Submarines look more dangerous than a normal boat. I also thought that submarines had windows in the front so you could see all the fishies and other cool creatures in the ocean.
Black Sea — A rogue submarine captain pulls together a misfit crew to go after ….. Captain Robinson: [from trailer] I lost my family because of this job. … movies like U571, The Hunt for Red October & Crimson tide, then this movie is for you.
