Black Sea (2014)

Director: Kevin Macdonald. Cast: Jude Law, Scoot McNairy, Ben Mendelsohn. 114 min. Rated R. UK/USA/Russia. Adventure/Thriller.

Naval mercenaries are hired to find gold in the depths of the Black Sea, in a WWII-sunken Nazi U-Boat. Although after films like Wolfgang Petersen's Das Boot and Tony Scott's Crimson Tide (and even Aliens-like doomed-mission themes, with evil corporate guy in the midst and all), making a noteworthy submarine movie requires the elements of a miracle, this film is still able to hold on its own till the very last minute - and Jude Law makes a credible impression as the crazy no-nonsense captain. It's not a bad film; just that we've already been here before.
