Theatrical release poster
- James Cameron took CGI to a new level with this film with the underwater Alien species. He would later take CGI beyond this level with his next film Terminator 2!
- Michael Biehn works with James Cameron again as a military lieutenant, but this time with a less rational mind.
- James Cameron clearly has a passion for being under the ocean. He would later make the Titanic, in which he travelled down to see the real life wreckage for research. After that he took 10 years off feature films and made under water documentaries instead. Hence his vision for this film The Abyss!
- It opened up our eyes to what could be down in the depths of The Abyss. It is often said we know more about space than we do about the deep deep ocean. Who knows what could be down there.
Starring: Ed Harris, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio and Michael Biehn. Directed by James Cameron. There's all you've known about adventure. And then, there's The Abyss.
When it comes to the safety of these people, there's me and then there's God, understand?
Goddammit, you bitch! You never backed away from anything in your life! Now fight!
[slaps Lindsey again]
Fight! Right now! Do it! Fight goddammit! Fight! Fight! Fiiiiight!
We all see what we want to see. Coffey looks and he sees Russians. He sees hate and fear. You have to look with better eyes than that.
[regarding Lindsey Brigman]
God, I hate that bitch.
Probably shouldn't have married her then, huh?
It's not easy being a cast-iron bitch. It takes discipline, and years of training... A lot of people don't appreciate that.
