Trivia

Diving bell had open hatch to sea kept open with pressure in cabin for dives & diving bell moored itself onto an structure submerged. See more »

Goofs

An open diving bell cannot go very deep unless it is pressurised. For an open diving bell it would require increasing volumes of air to be pumped into it.

Without pressurisation, the air inside the bell would be at the same pressure as the water - it would literally crush the bell but not until all occupants had been squeezed to death. See more »

Quotes

[discussing the diving bell]
Captain Daniels: Man crammed into that sardine can? Under the sea? How you gonna expect to breathe?
Greg Collinson: Simple. Pass the coffee. Think of this coffee cup turned upside-down. You plunge the cup into the water, and there's air trapped inside, right?
Captain Daniels: Yeah, but that bottom's wide open. I mean, that's crazy! Crazy!
Greg Collinson: Crazy, but it works. Believe me. Would I go down if it didn't? Skipper, I'm tellin' ya, this baby's got an emergency backup system throughout. And besides, I'm no hero.

This is the first time I've commented on a movie, and it's fairly appropriate to be writing about this one as this was the first movie my dad ever bought for our shiny new video recorder. Well, I must take after my dad in my movie taste, as I though this was (and still is) a very entertaining and enjoyable film. I don't really care if the acting is wooden (what else would you expect from good ol' Doug??), the premise was sound and the special effects were alright for the time. In all, this was generally quite a good film - don't let the snobs put you off it.
