Storyline

Down on his luck and perpetually impecunious, the experienced deep-sea diver, Jared, and his theme-park guide girlfriend, Sam, lead an idyllic and simple life in the sun-drenched Bahamas. Dreaming of striking gold, the couple along with Jared's solicitor friend, Bryce, and his new lover, Amanda, set sails for the vast ocean on a rickety boat, to claim ownership of a sunken pirate treasure of inestimable value lying next to a wrecked fuselage crammed with watertight cocaine bricks. Before long, the temptation to get their hands on easy money will lead to a dangerous head-on collision with the murderous local drug lords, as the team gets sucked deeper and deeper into an unexpected adventure amid the blue and shark-infested Bahamian waters. But, will the sea give away its riches so easily? Written by Nick Riganas

Trivia

Due to US moral views, Sony Pictures digitally altered the theatrical trailer to give Jessica Alba a 'less revealing' bikini. See also Pathology (2008) and The Hangover (2009). See more »

Goofs

When the crew lifts the cannon and the police pulls up you can see the airbags stopped under the surface of the water. They are very small. As the air released at the bottom it expands, the bags/balloons would be twice/thrice the size at least to have the lifting power (boyancy) to lift a cannon. See more »

Quotes

Amanda: I love the Caribbean. Too hot to wear shirts, too hot to wear pants and we're two hot young ladies.
Sam: You dive?
Amanda: Yeah, I can keep up.
Jared: So how long you known this one for?
Bryce: I don't know, about 14 hours now. Picked her up last night at The Mercer...
Amanda: [interupts Bryce] I picked you up last night. Don't start lying already.
Sam: So you and Bryce.
Bryce: I think I'm in love. Serious.
Bryce: [Looks at Jared]

Well-paced fun
8 October 2005 | by SpellvexitSee all my reviews

I was astonished at the dismal rating for this film, which at the time of this writing was 4.8. Into the Blue never demonstrated any pretense of becoming the next academy award winner, and instead faithfully executed its focus -- beautiful ocean scenery, beautiful bodies, and a significant degree of tension and action to carry the plot. I found the characters believable, especially given the target audience of the movie: the dialog was fairly cleverly humorous, but serious when it needed to be; the characters were adequately conceived, including the intentionally unlikeable 4th party woman who "wasn't family." Most of all, I enjoyed the pacing of the movie. Some slow underwater scenes were accompanied by peaceful music belying the increasingly perilous situations the characters found themselves in. Halfway through the movie, the tension never fully dissipates, as each event flows into the next as the stakes rise. The badguys are dealt with intelligently, and there are enough twists to convincingly carry the instability and danger of the situation.

I went into this movie wanting to enjoy it, and I wasn't disappointed. Though its premise wasn't the most intellectual of premises, I don't feel as if it were dumbed down as much as many action movies do, and instead carried out is plot with due respect given its expectations. I'd recommend this movie as a good post-summer adventure flick!
