Offers modest pleasures. It is not an essential film, but if you go to see it, it will not insult your intelligence, and there's genuine suspense toward the end.

Into the Blue is as much a mesmerizing aquatic expedition as it is a reasonably suspenseful action adventure.

New York Daily News
An enjoyable, gorgeously photographed aquatic adventure whose stars are blissfully bodacious.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Stockwell takes an especially leaden screenplay, floats the dull thing up from the depths of mediocrity, and makes it cinematically buoyant. Within limits, that is.

Philadelphia Inquirer
It's "The Deep" reimagined as an Abercrombie catalog.

Chicago Tribune
Mad props to Peter Zuccarini, who headed the team of ocean-bound photographers and captured some remarkably vivid footage, and also to the actors, who spend plenty of time looking cool, calm and collected swimming with the predatory fishes.

The cast is little more than the sum total of golden skin, firm flesh and blindingly white teeth, but in a film that demands them to be half-naked and soaking wet most of the time, looks trump technical acting skill every time.

Entertainment Weekly
Walker is supposed to be lured by the buried treasure, but the actor, wearing Brad Pitt's bristle cut, is like Pitt with his sexy appetite sucked out.

The makers of Into the Blue know what the audience wants. And they deliver a little bit more.
50
There will always be an audience for the escapist rewards this type of movie always dangles.

The Hollywood Reporter
When under water, the action-adventure Into the Blue has genuine thrills. Above water or on dry land, this is one dead fish.
