A pair of young vacationers are involved in a dangerous conflict with treasure hunters when they discover a way into a deadly wreck in Bermuda waters. Featuring extended underwater sequences and a look into the affairs of treasure hunting. Based on a novel by Peter 'Jaws' Benchley. Written by
The picture was notable for its opening underwater diving sequence featuring Hollywood actress Jacqueline Bisset in a white bikini bottom and see-through wet t-shirt thus launching her as a Hollywood sex symbol and contributing big word-of-mouth for the movie, assisting with its box-office success. According to the book "Hit and Run: How Jon Peters and Peter Guber Took Sony for a Ride in Hollywood" (1996), producer Peter Guber allegedly once said, "That t-shirt made me a rich man!". See more »
In scene where Nick Nolte is inside the shipwreck looking at a small school of big-eyed red fish, the fish are shown upside down, then goes to Nolte (upright), then back to the fish correctly shown upright. The first clip of the fish was apparently accidentally reversed. See more »
At first sight, "The Deep" has it all! A wonderful location, a treasure hunt, a hot chick and cool heroes with a nasty villain. How they managed to combine this elements into one of the most boring movies I ever saw is beyond me.
"The Deep" is slow. Excruciatingly slow! The characters are empty shells. I could care less about them. The underwater scenes while beautifully shot are tedious after a while.
Jacqueline Bisset has one good scene in a wet t-shirt but is then wasted for the rest of the film. Nick Nolte seems bored. Robert Shaw is basically the "guy from Jaws" once again. Louis Gosset Jr. is hardly in the movie but he tries his best. Eli Wallach is the nasty little bastard traitor we all love to hate, and as always he's great! They're the only saving grace of the movie.
It's not that "The Deep" is insultingly bad! It's just that its so bland, dull and unemotional that I was pretty much indifferent to the whole thing. So if you're expecting a big, exciting adventure look elsewhere. The only thing about "The Deep" worth mentioning really is Jacqueline Bisset's hard nipples.
