MILL CREEK DVD RELEASE: Through the Decades: 2010s Collection: Black Sea (2014)

Director Kevin Macdonald also made State of Play and The Last King of Scotland. For this movie, he’s working from a script by Dennis Kelly. Black Sea is all about the recently fired and divorced Captain Robinson (Jude Law) deciding to go into business for himself with a ragtag crew that is made up of misfits and Russian Navy sailors to get the gold of a sunken u-boat.

Of course, the communication between the half British and half Russian crews gets out of control, leading to numerous disasters, all while the company that fired Robinson is actually behind this entire job, planning on leaving the old sailor out to sea again after he finds the gold for them.

Influenced by The Treasure of the Sierra Madre and Sorcerer, I was surprised by just how effective this movie was and how much I enjoyed it. It’s truly the gem amongst the Mill Creek Through the Decades: 2010s Collection.

The Mill Creek Through the Decades: 2010s Collection has ten movies for a great price, including The AmericanMacGruberThe DilemmaThe Adjustment BureauYour HighnessThe ThingContrabandSafe House and Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. You can order it from Deep Discount.
