REVIEWS:





"A U.S. submarine encounters some really weird stuff in 'Below', a very well-crafted film that I enjoyed watching very much. .... There are some genuinely eerie moments [and] the movie's photography is highly stylish and effective, with great use of lighting, darkness, shadows, and some bright, bold colors on occasion. One particularly stunning moment comes early in the picture when we see the image of an approaching warship being reflected in the eye
of the officer looking through the submarine's periscope. .... 'Below' is an intelligent, thoughtful, and realistically spooky tale. It's not 'over the top',
but it's not totally void of ghostly imagery either. It's somewhere in between.
Darn good set of actors here too. They are totally believable in their roles. ....
This DVD edition gives us some extra goodies, too. .... My favorite bonus is
a short 12-minute featurette called 'The Process', which shows several
behind-the-camera clips from the film. Much of what we see in this bonus
is rehearsal footage, which is then shown alongside the actual footage
which ended up in the movie. This brief featurette, like the film itself,
exhibits very high production values. It surprised me that they would put
this much stylish emphasis on a short twelve-minute bonus piece. But they
did, and it's a very nice little bonus on the DVD."

-- David Von Pein; January 2004







"David Twohy is turning out to be one of those rare screenwriters who are actually better as directors. .... His films are distinguished by a clean, classic direction of action; a sophisticated sense of the relationships between people under stress; and a camera style that keeps the viewer intrigued without calling attention to itself. .... ['Below'] is a film of great technical precision, in which every shot has been thoughtfully selected for maximum expressiveness
and the crisp, creative editing propels the story along."
