  • 3 stars Reasonable story, good 3D, stiffling dialogue and acting..... too bad! I gave it Three, but would be hard to recommend to friends!
  • 3 stars The 3D was fantastic. James Cameron is no doubt the Master of 3D. Despite what other comments have said so far, the entire movie is in 3D and, like Avatar, I had to stop eating my popcorn for a little while to get over the vertigo. The concept was awesome, and it's nice to see a cave movie that ISN'T a horror show. However, the movie itself was too short. There wasn't enough time to develop an emotional bond to the characters, IMO. It was a fun movie nonetheless. And I wish the moderators of this site would be a bit more thorough with not allowing 'Reviews' that have nothing to do with the movie.
  • 3 stars This film engrossed my wife, nails biting into my palm while she broke the cardinal diving rule - she held her breath. I unlike her love diving and given 3-D it gave me a small fix only because caving (or spelunking) is the real quest here. Thanks to the bad reviews above I expected a lot worse - the script runs as thin as their oxygen tank supply on occasion but it all fits together as a cold-winter getaway with a who-will-make-it down under roller coaster ride - australian accents, caves, japanese tanks (yes) and diving in tight places. Imax would have emersed me more but it was far from all wet. Consider it a nice drive in the country, with flippers.
  • 1 stars Worst movie of the year.God,what a waste of time.
  • 1 stars I would say 0 stars but its not a choice to pick. This movie was terrible!!!! James Cameron you finally worked on a movie that sucked. I'd say its the worst movie Ive seen in 3 years!!! and I go to the movie often. Dont see it people!!! If you do see it in 2d theres nothing in 3d in this movie...Its boring, dull plot, horrible acting/directing...Im actually mad that I would think this movie would be good. God Im mad. Beebz!!!
  • 1 stars Why all the swearing? Especially disturbing to hear the Lord's name taken in vain. Glorification of killing not appreciated either.
  • 1 stars Didn't expect all the profanity & using the LORD'S name in vain! Movie was filled with very poor decisions(really stupid ones) that resulted in a lot of unnecessary deaths! Not recommended to see & a waste of money.
  • 1 stars Saw it at a midnight screening - wow, this is a very bad movie. James Cameron shouldn't be out there pimping this crap, it only ruins his rep.
  • 5 stars If you've ever been caving OR have been to that location you'll appreciate the movie. If not, you won't enjoy it.
  • 1 stars It's time to pack up the 3D gear Mr. Cameron, this movie is a muddy mess with a boring storyline. I realize he didn't direct it, but he was greedy enough to slap his name to the title to get my hard earned money. If you must watch it, see the 2D version at a lower price.
