I disagree. I didn't mind the surreal elements at all. I understand how that might turn people off who were expecting a realistic underwater thriller, but the focus of Landis's story is clearly elsewhere.
No, I didn't mean it. I didn't expect it to be realistic, I love supernatural stuff and without it there wouldn't have been suspense and it would be boring. I meant that supernatural stuff here doesn't have any explanation at all. Weird things happen because...It happens. It doesn't make any sense and Landis doesn't even try to explain why It happens. It's just very lazy. I mean, for example, protagonist finds a century lost explorer alive and young. What happened and how did she survive? Well, there's no explanation of it at all, not even hit. And the same things about other supernatural stuff. It just happens for no reason. Everything here is explained with "why not?". That's very lazy. Landis should spend time on polishing his scripts with all his talent.

I'd love to read Sorkin's latest, too, if anyone feels like sending it my way. I wonder how it'll fare as he's directing the film. Is Jessica Chastain still attached as the lead? She's so damn watchable. I can't keep my eyes off her even in not-so-good movies.
