5.0 out of 5 stars A truly classic adventure tale!, 14 Nov 2010

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Deep [DVD] (DVD)
I just happened to catch this film by chance on TV a few years ago and was glued all the way through - from the dreamy opening sequence to the climactic end encounter, with sharks and baddies swarming around the heroes.

Made on the back of the success of Jaws, this is an often underrated and far superior tale to its predecessor - skillfully told on-screen, over the course of nearly two unhurried and totally absorbing hours; without ever dragging or feeling over-long in any way. The look of the movie may appear a little "retro" now, over 30 years after it was made; but it has outlasted so many of its comtemporaries, with a story that could be set at any point in time from the late sixties onwards, which would make a more than half-decent remake today.

Jacqueline Bisset's character (just forget the T-shirt for 5 minutes, will you?) serves as way more than cliched eye-candy-cum-damsel-in-distress; her feminine insight moving the story forwards at a key moment.

A finely-woven combination of adventure, romance and historical detective work makes this a film with something for everyone; to be enjoyed by singletons, couples and families alike. An absolute must-see - add it to your collection today!
