Underwater was much better than I was expecting. I had fun watching it; they definitely did a great job with the suspense. I took my granddaughter with me and she whispered the funniest thing to me half way through. She says, “Don’t worry Grandma, I’m not gonna ask you to take me to the beach again.” She tells me in the car on the way home that if things like that could exist, she wants no part of the ocean again. Thanks Hollywood — no more sunburns and sand in my car.
I have one major positive and one major negative thought on this film.
The positive side: they did a fantastic job showing you their fear. I could feel the tension — it oozed off of the screen. Many times I put myself in the situations they are faced with, and I figured out that I would have been the first to die. Well played, actors.
My negative side: I wish we would have been given more on the characters’ back stories, especially Norah’s (Kristen Stewart). That girl wouldn’t give up. They put in a quick scene about her past, but it was rushed and not very detailed.
Overall, we had a great time and weren’t disappointed.
About The Peetimes: This movie is short, but jam packed with scenes that just don’t fit into Peetimes. If you use the 2nd Peetime, be sure to get back to your seat before the Peetimes ends, because there’s a critical scene you can’t miss.
There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Underwater. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)
Rated (PG-13) for sci-fi action and terror, and brief strong language
Genres: Action, Drama, Horror
Don’t miss your favorite movie moments because you have to pee or need a snack. Use the RunPee app (Android or iPhone ) whenever you go to the movies. (We've been doing this over 10 years now.)

RunPee.com owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.
Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.
