Customer Review

on 17 May 2013
"The Deep" was rushed into production after the success of another film adaptation of a Peter Benchley novel, - "Jaws" (1975). Robert Shaw even returns as essentially a slightly more sophisticated version of his "Capt Quint" character. When you throw in some great character actors and a beautiful Jacqueline Bisset at the peak of her looks, you know you wont be disappointed with the offering.

The story is concerned with the intrigue and danger that arises as a result of a holidaying couple (Nick Nolte and Jacqueline Bisset) accidentally discovering a ship wreck full of morphine. A joint plot involves their similarly accidental discovery of a haul of Spanish jewellery in a seventeenth century French ship wreck on the same reef as the other vessel.

The underwater scenes are excellent and as an adventure yarn it is great fun. There is an underlying "creepiness" to some of the Voo-doo scenes and at times it can be quite a scary adventure.

If you can ignore the obvious plot holes and coincidences, this is a must for any mystery / thriller fan.

Its also quite interesting to see how the fad of "Wet T shirt competitions" was originated by this film !
