Did You Know?

Goofs

When the woman is telling the president about the two crew member remaining aboard, she says James Piersall is an electrician's mate qualified in weapon's control. Sailors have specialized ratings and therefore someone with a weapon rating would have that qualification and an electrician's mate would work in the engine room (they make reference to a reactor room in the movie) where the reactor that supplies power is controlled and maintained.

Eric Roberts ? Name rings a bell somewhere . Let me think ? Ah yes I remember him now . Brother of Julia Roberts and at one time was seen as very much an up and coming big name in Hollywood but never really made it Instead it was his sister who became the star name . I will say one thing admirable about Eric Roberts and that is he's very possibly starred in more films than any other actor in history . Well starred is a bit misleading and " First name to appear in the cast list " is probably a more accurate description but Roberts prolific output is genuinely phenomenal and somewhat sadly for every widely distributed blockbuster like THE EXPENDABLES there's literally a hundred Robert star vehicles receiving their premiere at a DVD bargain bin or a very obscure cable station late at night

DEPTH CHARGE is typical of a Roberts film . It's action adventure that owes a fair bit to other superior films . Sometimes you see Roberts in a Tarantino wannabe , sometimes in a John Carpenter wannabe , and in this case a JerryBrukhemer / Tony Scott wannabe but without the budget and without the shallow excitement
