From Amazon.co.uk

Stunning tropical scenery and gorgeous athletic movie stars may not make a movie great, but they sure don't hurt. Jared (Paul Walker, The Fast and the Furious) dreams of finding sunken treasure and making millions, but his girlfriend Sam (Jessica Alba, Fantastic Four, Sin City) is content with their poor but idyllic life in the Bahamas. Still, when they find artefacts from a 19th century pirate ship, she gets caught up in the excitement--until they also find a crashed plane full of smuggled cocaine. Naturally, someone's going to want that cocaine back... From there, Into the Blue is a surprisingly well-plotted action film, unpredictable in its specifics if familiar in its broader outlines. Even more pleasant, the action itself stays plausible and genuinely engaging throughout. Jared seems able to hold his breath for a preternaturally long time, but aside from that the film is meticulous about the dangers and threats the characters face and is all the stronger for it. Add to this its unabashed ogling of Alba and Walker (both of whom are astonishing physical specimens) and you have a solid romp. Also featuring Scott Caan (Ocean's Eleven), Tyson Beckford (Biker Boyz), and Josh Brolin (Flirting With Disaster) as a slimy rival treasure hunter. --Bret Fetzer

Synopsis

Jared (Paul Walker, The Fast and the Furious) and Sam (Jessica Alba, Sin City) are a pair of in-love Bahamas-dwelling naturalists; she wrangles sharks at a local water park, he shepherds tourist scuba divers around the local reefs. Their beach-bum tranquillity gets a jolt when a fast-talking buddy (Scott Caan) and his drug-user girlfriend (Ashley Scott) come to visit. While out on a dive, the foursome uncover what could be a dagger from an 18th-century pirate ship but nearby there also happens to be a downed plane laden with cocaine. Moral quandaries ensue, bad guys get wind of the drugs, guns come out, and the plot thickens. The film is based on The Deep and features shark attacks and real sharks swimming among the actors. Director John Stockwell also did Blue Crush, so it's a given there's no skimping on the beautiful scenery, both above and below the water line. Ralph Lauren model Tyson Beckford is suitably intense as a shady club owner, and Josh Brolin is a sleazy boat captain.

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly Entertaining 18 Mar 2006
By Mercian
Format:DVD
Into the Blue was one of a number of films that caught my attention when I saw a trailer for it at the cinema. However, the film passed me by completely when it was released. This being the case I thought i'd give it a go on rental. I'm glad I did!
Like most people have said this film is not big on plot, but this doesn't matter. What plot there is is more than enough to keep you entertained for a couple of hours, particularly with the gorgeous scenery of the Bahamas (and the 'other' scenery) to gawk at!
I can't really say the acting was tremendous, but it is Paul Walker ('The Fast & The Furious' and '2 Fast, 2 Furious') in the main role and Jessica Alba is pretty much there just for eye candy for the guys (which she achieves with aplomb).
This film is heavily inspired by The Deep, based on Peter Benchley's novel, with enough of a difference to keep fans of the older film interested. Overall, I think The Deep was a better film (Robert Shaw was just awesome as always). This is no disrespect to Into the Blue, which brings the story bang up to date and has more stunts and action sequences. Oh, and sharks, which participate in some pretty nasty scenes! It's just that I think The Deep was better overall.
All in all, i'd say rent this even if you don't want to buy it. It's really entertaining and perfect viewing for a miserable day! Personally, i really liked it and would watch it again...

3.0 out of 5 stars If you're thinking of buying this... 16 May 2006
By Jay
Format:DVD
...then you know exactly what to expect. You don't take a Jessica Alba-Paul Walker film off the shelf unless you want to suspend reality and immerse yourself in an utterly fake yet guiltily satisfying world of ridiculously attractive individuals living remarkably vacuous lives in pursuit of something resembling meaning.

Let's face it, this isn't about the story or the quality of the acting. It's a half-decent action thriller with some stunning underwater photography, moments of genuine horror (the shark attack) and the hunt for hidden treasure.

There's no social comment, no political message. There are plenty of hot young actors wearing very little being paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to have fun in the sun. Paul Walker is a model brick, but everyone knows that already, Jessica Alba could pout for her country, 'butt' everybody knows that already, too.

So, no surprises here, just a diverting mix of 'The Deep' & 'Wild Things'. If you like those two movies you'll probably love this nonsense...Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Mildly entertaining 4 April 2006
Format:DVD
I'm a Jessica Alba fan so I was expecting great things from this film and I was left somewhat disappointed. The story-line is good but the performance of Paul Walker just annoyed me. He's so wooden!
The story is based in the Bahama's and what starts off as treasure hunt turns into a nightmare when instead of finding a pirate ship while out diving for treasure they find a plane loaded with drugs. While Walker & Alba want to report it to the authorities Walkers buddy (Scott Caan) and his newest girlfriend (Ashley Scott) have different ideas. Out of the woodwork come the bad guys and their guns. Que shooting, screaming and action galore.
It's not rocket science and it probably isn't something you'd watch over and over but Into the Blue is a fast-paced action thriller that has all the ingredients for escape.....blue sky, blue sea, half-naked males & females, bad-guys, guns, drugs..... It won't tax the brain but it'll keep you entertained.

3.0 out of 5 stars Warm Your Winter Cockles 5 May 2011
Format:DVD
Into The Blue was never going to trouble anyone come Oscar time. The preformances are at best non descript. Even one of the villains Tyson Beckford is a model. However on the massive upside this is a visual stunner of a film. As I sat on my sofa in the midst of yet another ghastly Scottish winter the mere sight of these beauitful types larking about in the Bahamas was enough to bring a smile to my weary face. How any man with a pulse cant enjoy the outrageously attractive Jessica Alba larking about in the sea escapes me. Into The Blue would probably be best descibed as an uber glossy music video with some dialogue thrown in.
Josh Brolin makes a workmanlike villain, the underwater photography is stunning if watched on a good tv. the action set pieces are well staged and the shark wranglers appear to have earned their corn to. As for the disc itself there are plenty of extras including a making of featurette. All in all a bit of a no brainer to watch but excellent escapist fun when you have the winter blues.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cool, sexy action film! 12 Mar 2006
By DVD Fan
Format:DVD
Into the blue didn't get great reviews at the cinema but from the trailers I sa it looked ok so I thought I'd rent it. I'm glad I did. It's one of the best action films I've seen in a while. It has some good actors, plenty of eye candy for the boys....and girls! A good story with a few plot twists and a great exotic location.
The story follows Paul Walkers character as he tries to make ends meet diving for lost treasure. After a storm he discovers a potential wreck site, but also discovers a crashed plane with an equal valuable cargo of drugs. Along with his friends he faces a battle of morals about what to do. When the owner of the drugs comes looking for his missing shipment things get even more tense!
This is an easy film to get into, with plenty of action, a good story, beautiful locations, some great underwater shots of Sharks and sexy women in bikinis! Although not hard to follow it does have some twists and turns towards the end. Much better than most recent action films.
The DVD has 10 deleted scenes, nothing to major to the story line. A 20 minute making of feature brief interviews with the main cast and director, also looking at the location, underwater filming etc. Also screen tests and trailers inc the remake of The Fog. Overall a great package 9/10
