Most of the diving related scenes in the movie were filmed with help from Stuart Cove's Dive Bahamas, which is one of the world most renowned diving companies. The company helped charter boats for the crew as well as drive the actors around to various locations off the island. Most of the underwater photography and shark scenes were filmed with the Stuart Cove's staff as well, because they have been working with those sharks around the island since the 1980's. See more »
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 »
Last time you made chili and cornbread, your ex-girlfriend was on the island. And then, the time before that, you brought home a pregnant, flea-infested, three-legged dog.

Fou young divers come across a legendary shipwreck that is rumoured to contain millions in gold, but nearby to their lucky find is another more sinister mystery. As rival treasure hunters begin to suspect their discovery, their friendships and loyalties are tested; and they must make haste before they become the hunted along with the treasure.
The story is solid enough, and in truth it was well above my expectations, captivating my interest very early on and remaining suspenseful and intriguing enough throughout the picture. The cast are all good enough, although they were probably chosen as much for their looks as their acting abilities, but who can deny that Jessica Alba and Ashley Scott did add a sexy feel for the male audience, and i guess Paul Walker and Scott Caan did the same for the ladies.
What really made the film for me was the truly fantastic scenery and the underwater camera work; it was flawless and stunningly beautiful in a way that is rarely captured on film, three cheers for the direction and the film crew for that.
