nel corso della seconda guerra mondiale il sottomarino americano 'tiger shark' - che nell'oceano atalntico sta dando la caccia ai sommergibili tedeschi - sta facendo rotta verso una base amica del connecticut dopo aver preso a bordo tre marinai britannici (fra i quali una infermiera), unici superstiti dall'affondamento di una nave ospedale inglese. ben presto fra gli uomini dell'equipaggio comincia a serpeggiare uno strano timore legato alla leggenda secondo la quale una donna a bordo porterebbe sfortuna. ben presto, infatti, la malasorte comincia a materializzarsi: il sottomarino, a causa di un guasto, non puo' tornare in superficie e fra strani ed inquietanti incidenti l'affascinante infermiera comincia a porre strane domande sulla recente morte del precedente capitano.

By Lawrance M. Bernabo HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
After being disappointed by so many thrillers "Below" benefited by exceeding expectations. The 2002 film from director David Twohy ("The Arrival") takes place during World War II and begins with the crew of the American submarine "Tiger Shark" picking up three survivors of a British hospital ship that has been torpedoed. One of them is a nurse, Claire Paige (Olivia Wilson), whose presence aboard the boat is seen by some as signifying bad luck. But it is clear that this sub already has been running on the down side since the depth of the captain. The new commander, Lt. Brice (Bruce Greenwood) is jumpy, and apparently is telling the newcomers a story about the death of Captain Winter, and he is clearly not alone in hiding the truth about what really happened. Right after the British are brought on board "The Tiger Shark" is attacked by a German ship, while makes Brice think that one of the three survivors in a collaborator. Meanwhile, Ensign Douglas O'Dell (Matt Davis) is trying to make heads or tales out of everything that is going on, especially when things start to get creepy.
It is easy to say that "Below" is a combination of a WWII submarine film and a ghost story, especially since that is a pretty interesting combination. But one of the things that makes "Below" work better than most ghost stories is that the possibility of there being some other explanation is quite strong throughout the film. One of the things that Twohy takes advantage of is the role that sound plays on a submarine where you can hear just about anything from whales singing to a Benny Goodman record that suddenly starts playing when the sub is engaged in silent running to a German depth charge bouncing along the outer hull (a marvelously affective sequence).

OK, I'll level with you first: When I first read a preview of this in Total Film in 2001, I was intrigued. A haunted submarine, directed by David (Pitch Black) Twohy, with Darren Aronofsky's writing. Naturally, much checking for the cinema release date...which never came, as it hit the mid-shelf of Blockbuster instead.
And that's a real shame. For this film, while not a technical marvel, is worth a look in if you're realising how bad the average Hollywood fodder is these days, or everyone else rented it.
It may not have any marquee stars (Jason Flemyng, Olivia Williams, Dexter Fletcher, and Holt McCallany from Fight Club), but is that a reason to switch off to the possibility it may be kinda good? After all, it is a very taught, tense, atmospheric horror film, with a few good twists in the plot that make it work much more than, say, the remake of The Haunting (if you haven't blanked that from your memory yet).
So, good acting, fantastic set-up, and many elements that work well, so why just three stars? Well, a few reasons:
1.) There are so many characters early on, you will get wires crossed due to the physical similarities between some of them - although the more distinguishable ones will obviously be alive longer.
2.) You will be able to spot the final twist within the first half hour.
3.) Despite its charms, and undeniable qualities, I would have to say it would be better as a rental than a Must Own, or Must Buy for that matter. Of course, if you do like the film, by all means add it to your collection, because it deserves to find an audience.
A potential late-night cult film for the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Spooky and surprisingly good 31 May 2005
By A Customer
I watched this and was actually scared by it. And that's quite an admission from from a cynical film fan. Its a great film, much better than most suspense dross that gets a cinematic release. The reason for this (I believe) is the great cast of character actors, (you'll recognise most of them from one film/TV programme or another) and what the director has managed to achieve on a small budget. The film capitalises on its setting, drawing out all the claustraphobia and danger of a WWII submarine, and the film leaves you guessing to what or who is killing off the crew. Definately worth a look.

4.0 out of 5 stars Damn Fine Chiller 8 Jan 2004
I was on night duty and a female colleague asked me to bring in a few dvds.
I brought Below and Deep Blue Sea.
Deep Blue Sea shocked her but Below scared 7 colours of you-know-what out of her!
Compare this to that dross that was Ghost Ship !
A brilliantly put together bit of chiller cinema, criminally overlooked by the masses.
Rent it out then buy your own copy and convert your friends !

By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER
*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Below is directed by David Twohy and C0-written by Lucas Sussman, Twohy and Darren Aronofsky. It stars Bruce Greenwood, Olivia Williams, Matthew Davis, Holt McCallany, Scott Foley, Zach Galifianakis, Jason Flemyng, Nick Chinlund & Dexter Fletcher.

1943 and The USS Tiger Shark submarine is patrolling the Atlantic Ocean. After taking on board three survivors of a wreckage and a battle with a German warship, mysterious things start to happen on board the sub....

It wouldn't be the first or last time that they did it, but Dimension Films failed to support a rather good horror film in their care. Coming a few months after Harrison Ford submarine thriller K-19: The Widowmaker sank without grace, Below was barely given a release or publicity junket to give it a chance. Which considering that $40 million was given to produce it comes off as mighty strange. More so when one looks at the credentials on offer. A cast featuring fine character actors from Britain & America, directed by the man who was hot from the popular Pitch Black and a certain Darren Aronofsky involved in the writing. OK, so admittedly a haunted submarine premise on the surface doesn't sound too demanding on the cerebral front, but this is much more than an underwater spooker.

Below gets all the key ingredients right for such a genre production. It's intensively tight in claustrophobic atmosphere, creepy in narrative, adroit with the kill dispatches and crucially pays off with the big reveal. It also has some great underwater sequences to sample as the cast do justice to the smart script. True it's a little derivative of similar themed film's like The Keep, The Bunker et all, but what it lacks in freshness it more than makes up for in slick story telling.
