The brain child of James Cameron at the tender age of 17, The Abyss deals in submarine tragedies, underwater terrestrial life forms and the flawed nature of human kind.
But what makes this Cameron’s superior disaster flick is the director’s cut of the film, in which megatsunami-level waves rush toward every coast at the hands of the NTIs, who are in control of the water. Just thinking about the devastating reach of the giant walls of water washing over every coastline in the world makes my head spin. Makes a boat with a hole in it seem a little small, doesn’t it?
