Have your say

BLACK Sea is a tense and powerful story of greed.

After 30 years as a submarine pilot, Robinson (Jude Law) is let go by the company he was working for.

His job has cost him his wife and his family, and now he’s at a loss for what to do.

But a tantalising opportunity presents itself when he’s told that one of Hitler’s U-Boats is lying on the bottom of the Black Sea, packed with $182 million worth of gold.

Robinson assembles a half-British, half-Russian crew to dive down and retrieve the gold.

Each man is told he’ll receive an equal share, but things start to go wrong when some crew members realise that their share becomes bigger as the crew becomes fewer.

Soon, things take a terrible turn for the worse and the fate of the men is threatened.

Tension runs high throughout the film and the suspense is breathtakingly good.

It’s a fantastic concept and the film really delivers.
