Writer-director James Cameron and producer Gale Hurd (Aliens and The Terminator) have teamed again to create this epic underwater adventure. When a nuclear missile sub mysteriously sinks, the Navy commandeers the crew of a civilian deep-sea oil rig to help in the rescue operation. This perilous mission becomes a wondrous odyssey into the unknown as forces from the ocean's deepest region begin to make contact with the divers. For Bud Brigman (Ed Harris) and his estranged wife Lindsey (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio) it becomes also a test of their physical and emotional limits. Their journey into the endless night of the ocean's depths lays bare the human heart in an elemental confrontation between death, love and something else...the strange inhuman watchers in the abyss. Requiring the most complex underwater sets, photography and special effects ever attempted, this science-fiction thriller is suspenseful filmmaking at its best. There's everything you've ever known about adventure...and then there's The Abyss.
