I watched this movie around early 2000's. It's in English.

There are a group of people researching something (not really sure maybe a fallen object from space) in the ocean. They sent some kind of robot to investigate it. But they failed because water pressure destroy the robot. Another scene I remember is a man is taken to a chamber of glowing light and communicating? with the alien. I think the alien in a form of a fish/stingray

    This description is great - Its just funny that it almost lines up perfectly with both movies suggested below. I believe the one you are looking for is The Abyss though.

    @Mumford451 and if it's not The Abyss, OP should see it immediately. ...actually, even if it is, it should be watched again ASAP!

It could be The Abyss (1989).

Here is a picture of the stingray alien:

Here is a shot of Ed Harris, standing in the undwerwater chamber and communicating with the aliens: enter image description here

You can watch the complete movie here (quality is not the best, the picture is intentionally distorted to avoid deletion from Youtube due to copyright reasons):

Near the end of the movie, starting ca. at the 2:04:00 mark, the underwater aliens save Ed Harris' character and bring him to a room in their submerged base/ship. In that room Harris communicates with the aliens.

There are several submersibles in the movie. There is a scene in the movie where after a prolonged underwater duel between two submersibles, one is manned by Ed Harris and Mastrantonio, the other is manned by the mad Navy Seal (played by Michael Biehn), the good guys manage to push the crazy SEAL's damaged submersible into the abyss, and after a short descent the enormous water pressure pulverizes the submersible. The desctruction of the submersible starts ca. at the 1:35:14 mark.

"Bud fights Coffey but Coffey escapes in a mini-sub with the primed warhead, and Bud and Lindsay give chase in the other sub. Coffey is able to launch the warhead into the trench, but his sub is damaged and drifts over the edge of the trough, and he is crushed when the sub implodes from high pressures."

You can read a detailed plot description for the movie on Wikipedia here:


  • This is the one. I remember the stingray looking alien.

Not sure if this one is what you're looking for. The name of the movie is Sphere, aired in 1998 and lead by Sharon Stone and Dustin Hoffman. The plot: A spaceship is discovered under three hundred years' worth of coral growth at the bottom of the ocean, and a team goes down to investigate.
