Trivia

The actors were actually in shark infested waters. This was achieved by putting the actors in the water and then chumming the waters around them. Safety nets were secured around the life rafts and actors to prevent any accidental contact. See more »

one of the best documentaries since 9/11
15 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The minute i saw the commercial i immediately wanted to see this its one of those things that just draws you in to it. I watched it from begging to end and recorded it on my DVR and still watch it. You will be in tears at one point in this movie, while you're watching it you think "My God people actually went through this." The documentary part is somewhat disguised as actually testimonies from the survivors of the Indianpolis along with some actually footage of the rescues. The soldiers also relate there past at one point where one of them tells a story about his father giving him permission to join and that he was signing his death sentence. If shark week brought us this on the first day i can't wait to see what the have in-store for us next year. 10/10
