Movie Review: **^The Abyss (1989)
I must admit, this was not my favorite movie. The existence of a species in the abyss, deep sea, against might be plausible, but that they accidentally case the crash of a nuclear submarine, and then rescue those who come to rescue the nuclear warheads. But of course the military guy wants to blow them all up with his nuclear warheads, and the scientists want to keep him from doing so. This film plays the same tactic twice, husband and wife are disaffected, but when the other partner faces imminent death then the emotion changes. These near death experiences, or actual death and then coming back from death play on the heart strings, but just felt like a manipulation. Ed Harris as Bud Brigman and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio as Lindsey Brigman star as the couple.
