Goofs

In the scene right after Gail had the voodoo encounter in her hotel room, we see Sanders (Nick Nolte) sitting and talking with Treece. He is toying with a cigar in his fingers. The cigar is wrapped in its protective plastic/cellophane wrapper. The view goes to a closeup of Sanders running the cigar under his nose to smell it, and we see the cigar is clearly bare - no longer wrapped in its plastic wrapper. Then the camera angle goes back to the long shot, and Sanders is once again toying with the cigar, only now it's in the cellophane wrapper. See more »

Quotes

David Sanders: I'm goin' down there, and you're gonna have to blow me up too!

Action, Adventure, Mystery, Drama, and Treasure to boot
14 July 2004 | by (Yucaipa, California) – See all my reviews

This movie has it all. I remember seeing this movie when it came out on TV.At the time I didn't know why I liked it so much, but now I know it was the ocean, the adventure, mystery, and intrigue. I just loved this movie. And I can't help it, I still do. I love the ocean scenes, and Nick Nolte's acting (not to mention Jacqueline's). I just ran across the DVD at Wally World for $5.50 and I had to buy it. I got a lot of enjoyment out of this movie and I have to give it a 10/10. I felt that all the acting was just fine including Robert Shaw's. I think that anyone who likes islands, adventure, scuba diving for gold, and beautiful woman will enjoy this movie.
