The Plot: After losing his lucrative freelance gig, submariner Robinson (Jude Law) ventures on a mission to the Black Sea to retrieve some lost Nazi gold, yet it’s not long before tensions arise between the British and Russian members of the crew. In short: chaos ensues.
Why It’s Awesome: Director Kevin Macdonald (The Last King Of Scotland) does a terrific job wringing enormous amounts of suspense out of his claustrophobic premise, and Jude Law absolutely rises to the occasion, Scottish accent and all. From first minute to last, Black Sea constantly keeps viewers guessing, and as the situation becomes dire, audiences will surely be racking their brains trying to figure out how Robinson and his fast-dwindling crew are going to make it out alive. Terrific.
