Nuclear bombs are sent near the bottom of the ocean and Ed must go down and release the timer. While he is there knowing he does not have the oxegen to come back up a beautiful miracle happens to him. Don't want to ruin the surprise. It is a great movie.

Don't waste your time with this 're-issue' unless you do not have the previous release. It adds nothing, and what's worse is Fox Home Video failed to do an anamorphic widescreen with this release, a feature sorely lacking in the previous release. Without any new features and no anamorphic widescreen added to the re-issue, this is just another attempt to milk money by adding nothing but pretty new packaging. Boo, Fox Home Video.

All the elements are there to make this a fun "sit on the edge of your seat" movie. You have a nuclear sub accident that just gets worse as it goes you have conflict between authority types and free wheelers. There is a love interest (attraction at a distance). Will he make it or is it out of time or out of air or out of distance maybe out of patients. Who knows?

Aside from the story there a re great effects and many panoramic scenes. There are lots of bubbles, an abyss and maybe some Ruskies. If you like all those submarine movies this fits in well. Again it is the people action and reaction that make the movie. Don't wait for some slam-bang surprise to appear out of no ware or you will have misses the story.

This is one of those movies that have to grow on you and then you will watch it again.

The Abyss became James Cameron's lost masterpiece. The film was cut for theatrical distribution because of Cameron's contract with the studio (it stated he could have final cut if it came in under a certain time limit). Thus, a whole subplot became a buried plot.
This re-release of the classic two disc set has the extended version and the original theatrical version on the same disc. It also has a huge amount of extras on the second disc. The difference really comes down to the packaging; The Abyss is now in a digipak two disc set. Both the political conflict raging up above the stranded submersible oil rig and the first contact with the aliens below benefit from the enhanced screen time. While it's clear that Cameron was trying to make something of a political comment within the entertainment, it still doesn't come through as anything more than "all you need is love, and if you don't find it fast we'll blow you away" variety. So, perhaps we should be thankful that while the message isn't necessarily better, the entertainment sure is.
The performances of all the principle actors enjoy the enhanced screen time as well. Ed Harris and Michael Behn both give very different but powerful performances. In this film Behn isn't the hero but an insane wannabe hero who falls victim to his own paranoia.
The disc itself appears the same as the previous edition. I didn't notice any improvement in picture quality or the interactive menu. The packaging is less sturdy than the previous edition. Of all the films to re re-released as a two disc set, this film and Cast Away deserve to be presented in the two disc format. While the re-release of Planet of the Apes has oodles of extras, it's a pitiful excuse for a film. ID4 is entertaining but really doesn't deserve the extra disc space.

The story in this movie is mainly about people and social reactions as situations and stress levels in a closed environment change...what do you think will happen in a movie about a deep-ocean oil rig? Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio and Micheal Biehn are standouts in this Academy Award winner. (One Oscar out of four nominations...)

Admittedly the Abyss gets a little corny near the end, but hey, this was 1989 remember? This is sci-fi that the wife and hubby can enjoy together.

Sit back and enjoy the screen candy, and realize that this was before everyone just chucked in CG any old time they felt like. Most of the effects in this movie are real-life! (But don't take my word for it, buy this and watch the commentary after you've watched the movie. If all commentaries were this informative we'd have it made.)

A great movie with a great plot, great directing, and great acting. What more is needed?

James Cameron is one of the most talented directors out there. He takes you into these worlds that you never though would be explored or visually realized. The way he does it is awesome. The Abyss is no exception, and it follows in the footsteps of Aliens, and The Terminator. It is filled with Drama, Action, Special Effects, and some awesome thrills. You feel completely and totally cut off from the world, and you are indulged in the characters that are on screen. The cinematography is great, and the acting is good. If you love sci fi- & action see this film. I highly reccomend this movie for just about anyone.
