Yet another Hollywood disaster

I know it is useless with these repeated complaints about Hollywood and submarine films. But still.

Swedish television just showed Sub Down (1997) starring Stephen Baldwin, Gabrielle Anwar and Tom Conti. It is absolutely hopeless, from the opening scene to the end. They have managed to get everything wrong. I will not list all stupidities. See the film!

Also look it up at www.moviemistakes.com where you find a fraction of all mistakes.

My favorite clip, though, is when the deep diving submersible pilot (Baldwin) taps his finger on the LCD, showing depth, as if it was a mechanical pressure gauge!

Just to top it up, the translation into Swedish subtitles made me laugh several times. But I can’t blame Hollywood for that!

Best,
