The Abyss

"Excellent"

The Abyss Review


Before he became King of the World, James Cameron blew budgets out of the water, so to speak, with this little gem about aliens living on the bottom of the ocean, and what happens when humans interact with them. The original ending blows totally, but the laserdisc promises a new ending that threatens to make The Abyss a classic.
