"Heart stopping…white knuckle…deep sea thrills." - David Ansen, Newsweek

In this thrilling, underwater action adventure from writer-director James Cameron ( Titanic, Terminator 2: Judgement Day, Aliens ), a civilian oil rig crew is recruited to conduct a search-and-rescue effort when a nuclear submarine mysteriously sinks. One diver (Ed Harris) soon finds himself on a spectacular odyssey over 25,000 feet below the ocean's surface, where he confronts a mysterious force that has the power to change the world or destroy it.
