With storms raging above sea-level, a submerged oil rig faces the prospect of being cut off from the surface. To complicate matters, a nuclear submarine has been downed just a few miles away, the Navy SEAL in charge of the rescue (Michael Biehn) is cracking up, rig boss Ed Harris doesn't get on with rig designer Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio - she's his estranged wife - and something very strange is lurking deep in the trench below. With absorbing characters, groundbreaking special effects (which picked up an Oscar) and a fresh crisis emerging every minute, James Cameron's first oceanic epic is a plunge well worth taking.
