Trivia

The plane shown crashing and underwater, right down to the plane settling on a ledge are from Airport '77. The rescue scenes, like pressurizing the air hoses, the burst air bags, the stern of an LST (Naval ship) and the plane sinking are also from Airport '77. See more »

Goofs

The tail logo changes from the one seen at takeoff to the one seen when the plane crashes. Probably due to using Airport '77 footage. Interestingly enough, both movies use Stevens as the bigwig who has the bucks for the plane. See more »

Homage to Airport 1977
27 May 2001 | by (San Francisco, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"Submerged" is an updated remake of Universal's "Airport 1977." Although this is a Paramount release, "Submerged" uses the same model work, stock footage, and many key plot points from "Airport 1977" including the same rescue sequence. This version sensibly takes some of the story outside of the plane crash--the fatal flaw of the original. There are some good action chase scenes and some lively explosions. There are some other interesting additions, such as shark-infested waters and a pregnant woman in labor. The plane decor is interesting -- including a old western-style saloon bar. Aside from Dennis Weaver as Stevens, the acting is pretty wooden and uninteresting. Overall, "Submerged" is midly entertaining, on par with a good made-for-TV movie.
