Jessica Alba was unhappy with the film, mostly because her character was rewritten during filming. Also scenes were shot with her stunt double in a bikini behind her back, forcing her to spend the majority of the movie without much clothes on. See more »
Near the end when Sam is fighting with that guy underwater, her hair is pulled back by a rubber band or elastic at the start of the fight and at the end when she is swimming back to the boat. But in the middle of the fight, when he grabs her chest, her hair is loose. See more »

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.
