Adequate Programmer
15 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

This is really a routine, typical 30s melodrama with then-popular leading men Edmund Lowe and Jack Holt being good buddies and Lowe saves Holt and loses his arm in the process. After being unable to find diving work anywhere he then takes a job for Bela Lugosi who is a criminal searching for lost treasures in the sea. Holt becomes a cop and then must go against his buddy. Those looking for Lugosi will be very disappointed. He has about 5-10 minutes of screen time and really no time to develop his character. He still does his best in being the bad guy for those few minutes. The best thing about the movie is good underwater footage. This is the type of movie Leslie Halliwell, in his old annual guide, would call "Adequate programmer" and offer no other information. In one word, "mediocre".
