Although suspense and intrigue are sustained by James’ intense storyline, a half interesting film cannot make-up for what is lacking as a whole. Submergence strives to be artistic, thought-provoking, complex and nuanced. Wim Wenders captures stunning scenery, however, his direction feels like he is trying too hard to create something extraordinary.

Despite their strong performances, McAvoy and Vikander are unable to save this sinking ship of a film. Ultimately, we are sadly left with an average movie that leaves viewers feeling disappointed and unsatisfied.

Submergence (2017) Directed by Wim Wenders. Written by Erin Dignam. Starring Alicia Vikander, James McAvoy, and Alexander Siddig.

    Mmmm what a disappointment. Not the film but your real effort to shut me up.

    I think film is deep analysis of the relation between what reality means for us today, and what real world is like. Unusual people create their own definition of getting to to this relation between true and fiction, and this is what this story is about. The lack of the plot is stupid accusation of people living in the society thriving the true about themselves in the world of infinitive number of mirrors in the form of other human lives. It reminds me the hunger for new series of reality television programs or the dynamic, full of action sensational movies.
    We started to live in fictional world lacking deep questions and ignoring simple impressions providing the answer to something what was forgotten to ask.
