Hulu’s latest thriller/romance/drama, “Deep Water” may or may not be on your radar, but with a decent cast of Ben Affleck, Ana de Armas, and everyone’s favorite Euphoria actor, Jacob Elordi, it’s one of the most hyped digital releases of the year. At face value this movie mimics most other dramatic thrillers and doesn’t do enough to be unique. The plot is extremely predictable and really doesn’t lead the mind to any confusion. With nearly all great thrillers, my anxiety goes crazy, but with “Deep Water” I never felt like I was on the edge of my seat. With all that being said, you can still enjoy this one if you’re a fan of Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas’ acting.
“Deep Water” is a melodramatic 6.5 out of 10 and really fails to scratch the thriller/drama itch. With solid acting and a worthwhile cast, “Deep Water” is definitely worth the watch if you ONLY have Hulu.. Although it’s not perfect, if that’s the only streaming site you have access to, you’ll be entertained by the watch and won’t regret it. However, if you have a lot of streaming options, it’s better to leave this one alone. It may just be because I watched “Deep Water” and “Windfall” back to back, but if you have to choose one; “Windfall” is the better watch and will leave you more satisfied.
