Critic Reviews of "The Abyss"Hollywood ReporterMarch 10, 2015
Colossally ambitious, this logistically boggling and technically brilliant film from writer-director James Cameron is a visual tour de force, featuring overall, the greatest underwater sequences ever seen on film.VarietyJune 19, 2008
A firstrate underwater suspenser with an otherworldly twist, The Abyss suffers from a payoff unworthy of its buildup.Chicago ReaderJune 06, 2007
The attempt to extract the essences of several genres (cold-war submarine thriller, love story, Disney fantasy, pseudomystical SF in the Spielberg mode) and mix them together ultimately leads to giddy incoherence.Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
This overlong concoction is scuppered by dire dialogue, histrionic performances and maudlin sentimentality.Rolling StoneMay 12, 2001
Anyone looking for a discouraging word about this stupendously exciting and emotionally engulfing film should read no further. The Abyss confirms James Cameron as a world-class filmmaker.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
I'd sooner believe that Moby Dick could swim up the drainpipe.Nick's Flick PicksAugust 04, 2010
The Abyss gains in some ways from its own Achilles heels, in a way most movies don't... its formal technique, its reckless obsessiveness, and its gutsy emotionalism are what I can't stop turning over in my mind.Antagony & EcstasyDecember 14, 2009
One need not be a Cameron acolyte to recognise that The Abyss has aged better than some of the films that outshone it back in the day.BrianOrndorf.comAugust 26, 2009
The movie was a bear to make and it shows onscreen, parading around a series of mesmerizing set-pieces that look deliciously hard-earned in ways our current CG-drenched filmmaking climate never allows.EmanuelLevy.ComSeptember 19, 2007
As a follow-up to Cameron's great sci-fi Aliens, The Abyss is too verbose for an actioner and the special effects, striking as they are, are not well integrated into the narrative, but it's still worth seeing.TV GuideJune 06, 2007
What ultimately saves the film are its extraordinary sets and phenomenal Oscar-winning visual effects.ColeSmithey.comMay 11, 2007
Great blending of spectacle and drama.
