Tepid underwater adventure
6 April 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Fast-paced treasure hunt finds self-proclaimed scuba "bum" (Kincaid) framed for murder after local king-pin's (Dillman) thug overdoes the standover routine on two divers searching for antiquities of a sunken Spanish galleon. When Kincaid discovers the ill-fated pair recovered part of the long-lost bounty, he enlists the aid of marine archaeologist (Dullea) and local treasure-hunter (Montalban) to raise the wreck before Dillman can cash-in.

Very modest time-filler at best, and sorry to disappoint, but little to no shark (or any other) action mention. Dillman is offbeat as he minces about in flamboyance, whilst the beautiful France Nuyen hangs from his arm foretelling destinies with a perpetual cocktail and Black Magic motifs. Montalban is perhaps the most watchable, both he and Dullea have some sort of back-story on which to develop their characters, unlike poor Aron Kincaid despite being essentially the central protagonist, has little to do but look annoyed and complain. Nevermind, there's a glimmer of hope suggested before the credits roll.

Good cast, some sunny-looking Caribbean exteriors and plenty of underwater faunalogue, but ultimately, there's very few shocks or thrills in this 72-minute TV quickie to recommend.
