21/04/2015 by Sam Tremayne

Black Sea is the kind of movie that’ll probably fly under your radar (or sonar in this case). It’s the story of Jude Law’s Robinson and his quest to haul a lost World War II treasure from a German U-Boat deep under the Turkish sea. Simultaneously, Robinson needs to solve his money woes and reunite his broken family. This is a film that goes in directions that will divide opinions (or perhaps would have, had anyone seen it).
