In the Somalia coast, the veteran divers Engel, Mitchell, Hurst and the rookie Jones are assigned to repair an oil pipeline on the bottom of the sea by the Vaxxilon representative Karsen. They are advised that a storm is coming, but the Diving Support Vessel Lorimer lowers the bell with the team. They succeed to weld the pipeline but the storm comes and the vessel sinks, killing the whole crew. Short of the oxygen, the divers try to communicate with the surface and the leader Mitchell keeps the hope that they will be saved. But will the oil company send another vessel to rescue them?

Did You Know?


From the moment they reached the pipeline and saw the position mark they new their relative position that is good enough for quick rescue. It was written on the map they where looking to. When reached the second position (emergency tank) with full length of the umbilical they knew the distance. With simple math they could get the coordinates with several meter precision. But yet when asked on radio they chosen to say they don't know where they are. See more »


Engel: A man goes to sea for many reasons. Perhaps to sense its beauty and stare at the infinite horizon that offers no questions, seeks no answers. Perhaps to stand in awe of its power, savagery, grace. This is all true, but there are also those who go to sea ultimately because they are lost and never want to be found.

Deep shallow
7 February 2016 | by eryuiSee all my reviews

This movie is not terrible, it's empty. It is a low budget one, where not much happens and the little that happens is stretched into an hour and a half of length.

It seems more a movie for television then for the cinema. You do not enter into the role of any character and there are no major twists and is also fairly predictable. With a little more development it would be more interesting.

However, while not completely boring and while having a minimum of (uninteresting) suspense, I can not recommend it, unless you've just nothing else to see.

The real nice thing to watch here is the movie poster.
