Not really interesting.
22 January 2002 | by See all my reviews

Ben, a former Navy officer now works on a rig as the guy in charge, but since a lot of crew keeps dying whilst diving and planting the rig in the sea he needs men who are willing to take the risk. He gets in touch with an old friend from the Navy who works in a prison as sort of an diving training base and there Ben selects out the best to complete the task, but with superiors breathing down his neck, a camera crew now jumping on board and a deadline to meet he wants to finish the job and make sure the men stay alive, but not all things work out as he plans. A friend said to me that it was a guy movie, yet it's more like a fast forward movie. There aren't any interesting scenes except for fans of Gregory Harrison able to see him in a pair of shorts through out the whole movie, he seems to be the only person able to act out his role properly yet his name doesn't appear as if he has the lead role and yes he is the lead actor in the movie. What everybody else was doing there I don't know because they were just dull to watch. 2 out of 10 if lucky.
