Sam and Jared are a young couple in the Bahamas, divers and aspiring treasure hunters. While the arrogant salvager Bates has loads of expensive equipment, Jared gets by with a small, battered boat. Jared and Sam find a historic wreck, but nearby is a wrecked airplane with a large quantity of cocaine. Jared and Sam want the treasure; their diving partners also want the drugs. Dangerous criminals realize the plane and cocaine are submerged somewhere in the area. When the bad guys learn that the couple has located the drugs, Jared and Sam find themselves in mortal peril.

During the first dive to look for treasure, the divers use individual underwater propulsion devices spinning in reverse to blow water on the sand to clear the sea floor. Only problem is, none of them move backward when they do so. Blowing that much water at the sea floor would propel them backwards unless they were tethered, which they are not. See more »
[Bates enters, on his boat, next to the boat on where Jared and Sam are making out]
Hey. Hey. You guys okay?
Yeah, we're good, man. Just plugging a few holes, you know?
[hits Jared on the chest]
Sea Robin looks great.
Yeah, we just finished it. We got her out to sea before the storm hits. We've been working every day since.
What the hell are you looking for, bro? They allready found the Titanic. You didn't hear about that?
Oh, you mean the one with the dishes? No, I only hunt for stuff...

I didn't have high hopes when I went to see this film and expected it to be little more than Jessica Alba in a bikini and her friends arguing over some underwater goodies. How wrong I was ! Ms Alba is the only 'big' name in this film but all the actors do an excellent job in building-up and developing their characters. The dialogue and interaction is very good, how the characters relate to each other and how they behave is completely believable and its a really good story. Its starts off slow, setting the scene and introducing characters gradually and then it suddenly begins to accelerate - soon enough there are British gangsters appearing, a bit of piracy going-on, some mystery over a sunken ship and several plot twists. Yes Miss Alba is scantily clad but this is a good thriller with a good story that keeps adding surprises along the way.
