CHERNOBYL ABYSS * (Theatrical Release Russia 2020)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.6|5.0 Starsììì

Chernobyl Abyss builds itself around the Chernobyl nuclear power incident that made the Ukrainian town uninhabitable for over thirty years. The story can be hard to follow and a little incoherent at times with questions about why some actions are taking place. Emotional scenes do not really touch the heart and the movie comes off as cold which takes away from its quality. The English dubbing and subtitles are in place. If watching this on Amazon Prime, there is an option to choose Dolby Plus for sound quality. Choose the Dolby Plus for better ability to catch the complete dialogue.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Maybe. The film is not memorable, and the story seems so much smaller than it could have been.
