Ratings & Reviews

  1. Sean Patrick Stevens's rating of the film Black Sea

    Underwater "Treasure of the sierra Madre" is made truly memorable by Jude Law's nuanced performance that positions the character less as a clever Red Oktober James Bond type than a working class coal miners who could REALLY use a union!

  2. Luca Soldati's rating of the film Black Sea

  3. Dalibor's rating of the film Black Sea

    Allegory of a male midlife crisis as a claustrophobic environment echoing life failures, imprisoned with unresolved and irrational political conflicts, and haunted by an ever present but never really seen (institutional) enemies standing in the way of one's rightfully earned (financial) way out. The whole thing is missing a bit more courage to step away from mainstream into a more provocative analysis.

  4. Django's rating of the film Black Sea

    Jude Law delivers a strong performance outside of his normal comfort zone in this well crafted entertainment.

  5. Inês Moreira Santos's rating of the film Black Sea

  6. pluviosity's rating of the film Black Sea

    it's a bit too slow to be tense, but not bad, it's good to see Jude Law letting out more gruff than the usual charm.

  7. SafeStanding's rating of the film Black Sea

    Formulaic and predictable but Jude Law impresses in this tense tale of greed. Of this genre of film which is so often OTT, there is logic in it's direction and an enjoyable journey.

  8. †. Kennedy Pope's rating of the film Black Sea

    I haven't seen a submarine film between this and Hunt for Red October (not even sure if many of them exist in that time period); for what this was I enjoyed it. Jude Law gives a great performance with the exception of his character motivation kinda slipping for me toward the end. There are a lot of different wide-scope conflicts going on at once that work together to make an entertaining thriller.

  9. Horace's rating of the film Black Sea

    At least it felt like home.

  10. pencils only's rating of the film Black Sea

  11. Federico Di Folco's rating of the film Black Sea

    Film senza infamia e senza lode,realizzato bene ma molto stereotipato e forzato in molti passaggi.Law è spesso sopra le righe e la lotta di classe è troppo tirata per i capelli,tenendo presente anche il fatto che l'equipaggio è un ammasso di cerebrolesi che quasi meritano la fine che fanno(e che ti aspetti fin da subito). Ha in bagaglio la giusta dose di tensione e claustrofobia, ma non colpisce mai nel segno.

  12. Enrico Gaudenzi's rating of the film Black Sea

    Può anche andare bene fomentare l'odio di classe... ma non così! Storia di alcuni disoccupati che si votano ad un impresa quasi impossibile di recupero oro nazista

  13. Denis Zordan's rating of the film Black Sea

  14. Fırat Ataç's rating of the film Black Sea

    A submarine thriller that fails to thrill

  15. ABVH's rating of the film Black Sea

    Predictability and cliche don't work together, or separately

  16. FCC 86's rating of the film Black Sea

    "Boats are like whores, the old ones know how to look after you best"

  17. Palmat's rating of the film Black Sea

    Pretty good thriller as submarine movies go. Production values are very good and the cast is quite accomplished, although I feel that the typecasting of Mendelson is a bit boring. Law does a fine job as the central character but lacks that special something to bring everything together. The direction is good and the script while somewhat stale has enough twists to keep me interested. Worth a look for sure!

  18. Jorge Mourinha's rating of the film Black Sea

    Heist movie meets submarine thriller meets #occupygold.

  19. Giles J Davis's rating of the film Black Sea

    Kevin Macdonald continues to creates tension for the everyman is this incredibly taut thriller. Keeping things British is what he does & that he does extremely well here. Jude Law is surprisingly exceptional as a skipper with the world on his back. Akin to Where Eagles Dare meets The Abyss, Black Sea feels very real, very claustrophobic & so close. Great support as always from Michael Smiley & Ben Mendelsohn.

  20. J. O.'s rating of the film Black Sea

    It may run a little predictably, but this was highly entertaining and a much needed entry to the expensive near-extinct genre of submarine thrillers. Jude Law commands the screen - as an actor he's much more enjoyable in his middle age, as a tough-as-nails brute. Good supporting cast. Quite stylish, too, with gritty red and blue cinematography that saturates each shot of the wonderfully rusted out, leaky sets.

  21. Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film Black Sea

    The adventure grows pretty exciting in the last thirty minutes and the finale, if not totally unexpected, did have a good impact on me. (3.5 stars)

  22. Tigrão's rating of the film Black Sea

    Fantastic filmmaking from a master of modern thriller.

  23. Addy K.'s rating of the film Black Sea

    Had director Kevin Macdonald been truly fearless, could this have been a worthy successor to Clouzot's WAGES OF FEAR? What we can settle for is a beautifully shot white-knuckle thriller based on themes of greed, class warfare and survival. Though plot defies logic, playwright Dennis Kelly milks the political irony of the Americans, Brits and Russians as partners on a mission that produces only toxic results.
