Predictable but pleasantly nostalgic.
2 January 2011 | by divers3See all my reviews

Anyone who has watched the "SEA HUNT" TV series will no doubt find the plot very predictable. It is, for all purposes, a slightly "modernized" feature-length SEAHUNT episode but the nostalgia factor easily trumps out what would otherwise be a "ho-hum" 4-star flick and turns it into a unique and memorable 8-star entertainment event.

The "vintage" dive gear is not the only item of interest to many watchers; the appearance of what was, at the time, cutting edge skydiving / parachuting gear will likewise appeal to the old jumpers out there.

This is a must watch movie for the "Mike Nelson" fans out there, even if watching our hero use a single-hose regulator smacks of heresy.
