Enjoyable descent into submarine claustrophobia and paranoia - as Jude Law leads, complete with a passable Scottish accent, a ragtail bunch of Brits and Russians down to the sea bed to find sunken Nazi gold. In many ways it's basically 'Treasure of the Sierra Madre' under-water, as the lure of the gold starts to pit one against the other and they forget that there are always things more precious than gold, but there is a clever and unexpected plot-twist that chimes with our more modern obsessions with bankers and big coporations. All very well done but not quite in the same league as the John Huston classic.

Film of the Week

The Conjuring (15)

Hugely enjoyable, genuinely scary horror flick that provides a welcome throwback to classic 1970s chillers, thanks to impeccable production design, a superb script, powerfully atmospheric direction, intense set-pieces and terrific performances.
