So Bad It's Good
24 January 2013 | by grahampotts2012See all my reviews

If you know anything about commercial oilfield diving is so bad it is really funny. Everything is completely out of whack but pro-divers will see that David Carradine plays the arch-type Projects Manager who doesn't mind who gets hurt as long as the money rolls in. And a one-armed LSS!! Who dreamed that one up?? As I recall there are some Ocaemeering stickers in the back ground - no wonder their diving division went bust! - not the best advertisement for a global diving company. The divers are all supposed to be graduates from the legendary Chino Prison Commercial Dive School - the course was two years long and some very heavy duty people walked out of the correction facility straight onto construction barges in the Gulf of Mexico and the Middle East. Hopefully none of them were as stupid as the divers portrayed in this hilarious film. None of the ones I met were. I think they should do a re-make
