As mentioned James Camereon directed this underwater adventure starring Ed Harris as Bud Brigman, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantnio as Harris's estranged wife Lindsey, and Michael Biehn as Navy SEAL Lieutenant Coffey.
When a American Nuclear Submarine mysteriously sinks, a civilian oil rig crew is recruited to attempt a search and rescue effort of the ship. Leading this crew is Bud Brigman who is very concerned about sending his crew into such a dangerous mission, the Navy also calls on the help of Brigman's wife who designed the oil rig which causes tension between the two. The Navy also sends a group of Navy SEALs to supervise the operation led by a Lieutenant (Biehn) who finds it very difficult to stay sane in the movie. When a Alien Species though is discovered by Lindsey, Michael Biehn becomes tempted to destroy the species which must be stopped at all costs.
The Abyss is a heart stopping, suspenseful, thrill ride that I found a tad boring the first time I saw it, but once I got into the movie, it became one of my faves of all time. I was dissapointed seeing Michael as the bad guy in the movie but I guess you just can't win them all.
Next edition will have the epic Braveheart as I apologize to all chatters out there for the delay in this column. I give the Abyss a 3 1/2 star and I hope you decide to check it out.
