Submergence (2017) Rated NR

James More is held captive by jihadist fighters off the coast of Africa; across the ocean, Danielle Flinders prepares to submerge into the Greenland Sea. While More and Flinders are separately confined, they each remember their romance from the year before. Starring Alicia Vikander, James McAvoy, and Alexander Siddig.

This film has beautiful cinematography. The story jumps back and forth between the present and a year earlier when the main characters were romantically involved. The jumps don’t always transition smoothly, which makes the story difficult to follow. Vikander is an asset to the film; the camera loves her, and her natural beauty shines brilliantly on screen. However, I wish the story was more concise than it is. I don’t like the way the film closes because it leaves the storyline open-ended making you unsure of what you just watched. This film isn’t worth a watch.
