Two-time Academy Award® nominee Jude Law captains the cast of Black Sea, the suspenseful adventure thriller directed by Academy Award® winner Kevin Macdonald (One Day in September, The Last King of Scotland). Black Sea centers on a rogue submarine captain (Jude Law) who, after being laid off from a salvage company, pulls together a misfit crew to go after a sunken treasure rumored to be lost in the depths of the Black Sea. As greed and desperation take control on board their claustrophobic vessel, the increasing uncertainty of the mission causes the men to turn on each other to fight for their own survival.

Common Sense Says
Entertaining but imperfect sub movie has strong language.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Black Sea is a tense, frequently violent submarine thriller starring Jude Law. Language is the biggest issue, with almost constant uses of "f--k" and "s--t," as well plenty of other words. There are a few killings and several deaths, with some bloody wounds and burned corpses seen, but the majority of violence hinges on the sub itself crashing. There's also a pervasive sense of tension and anxiety. Characters smoke and drink in a background way, and there are subtle references to teenage sex, as well as some kissing. Characters do exhibit some teamwork (though it eventually falters), but the bigger message is a condemnation of greed; characters' decisions are affected by the presence of gold.
