Is It Any Good?
This is an intense, dark drama that's as much, if not more, about the imbalance of power in mentor/mentee relationships, especially when they become romantic, as it is about no-limit diving. The two leading actors in No Limit have a lot of screen magnetism, and the entire cast turn in very good performances. The direction takes viewers through the story as it unfolds, without spoon-feeding answers, which keeps up the tension and suspense.
The underwater photography is fantastic. It's easy to see and follow the action when no one can speak, even in the black depths of the ocean. A brief pairing of sex and violence make it best for oldest teens and up who can handle the intensity.
