According to director John Stockwell on the DVD commentary, a lot of the violent scenes were edited or digitally altered to secure the desired PG-13 rating. See more »
The sounds produced by the Honda 4-stroke outboards on the triple engine offshore boat are not accurate. They are clearly produced by a low-restriction exhaust on an inboard or inboard/outboard engine configuration. The real engines should sound far more quiet and timid. See more »

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.
