Trivia

One of the final shots of the film features an arm and hand rise from the sea clinching a piece of treasure. A similar shot was used for the main movie poster of another Peter Benchley filmed adaptation, The Island (1980), where an arm and hand protrudes from the sea clenching a pirates knife. See more »

Goofs

When Treece, Berke and Sanders are heading over to the wreck (the first time, just before they discover the three barrel lock escutcheon plate) Treece appears to be looking towards Berke but he's talking to Sanders - Sanders even turns to face him but Treece is still looking in Berke's direction.

[Treece appears]
Romer Treece: Well, it isn't a bloody tourist trap! What do you want?
David Sanders: Mr. Treece?
Romer Treece: Indeed.
David Sanders: Ah. Well, Mr. Treece, a friend of ours was doing some diving around here about a month ago, and he found a Spanish coin, that was dated 1714, and he told us to talk to you.
Romer Treece: Look it up in the Hamilton Library.
David Sanders: Yeah, we did, we looked it up in the library and we talked to the librarian, and she said for us to come out here and talk to you 'cause you'd help us.

24 September 2002 | by (Winnipeg) – See all my reviews

Saw this on HBO with my parents one vacation. I like this movie, it has a story which includes suspenses, horror, mystery and action. Not too many movies have this combination. Great acting by Shaw, his role is on par with Jaws. The under water filming is the best of any under water film. Then tension and fear with the under water scenes leave an impression on one's mind. A classic shown on TBS late night, I will tape the next time I see it on. They usually show the movie The Island afterwards, I never seen that one; I wonder if it is any good being the second feature. Rent it, tape it, or buy it! You will not be disappointed. 8/10
