a great adventure tv movie
7 October 2001 | by (los angeles, california) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie. It is really well cast with Cliff Robertson playing the real Mel Fisher. The underwater scenes for television are terrific. I love the music and the boat tipping over sequence is great. Also great is a speech Mel makes about the liberties we have in America which we can't have taken away from us. Go Mel, I agree with you and think you are a great American.
