Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

A capsized ocean liner, a kidnapped heiress, a terrorist leader and the U.S. Marines who take them all on-get ready for intense action deep in the water when Lt. Colonel Alan Decker (Costas Mandylor) finds himself in the middle of an international terrorist plot to kidnap the daughter of an oil tycoon. Terrorist leader Lazo orchestrates a nuclear test in nearby waters in an attempt to disable all airborne and surface surveillance equipment. But without warning, the blast creates a massive tidal wave that capsizes the ship, and threatens the lives of everyone on board. Now, Colonel Decker and Captain Josephson (James Coburn) are the only hope for survival and must make their way through the sinking ship to reach the ocean's surface before it's too late.

Product Description

An international terrorist plot to kidnap the daughter of an oil tycoon off an ocean liner goes awry after a nuclear test in near-by waters creates a massive tidal wave that capsizes the ship. Now, a group of survivors must fight their way through the upside-down maze of the ship’s corridors racing against the rising water, deadly sharks, and the terrorist leader still on board.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not so deep junk March 10, 2003
Format:DVD
About the Movie:
From the stacks of "you get what you pay for" comes this rather awful b-grade direct to video movie.
Deep Water sloshes through water parted 30 years ago by one of the classic adventure films of the late 20th century, Poseidon Adventure. Like Poseidon, it involves a cruiseliner that is hit by a tidal wave and capsizes. Like Poseidon, everyone dies except maybe 5 people. Like Poseidon, the only way to get out is to travel up to the lower hull to escape.
Deep water tries to be unique by adding guns and bad guys. There's no Gene Hackman yelling at God in this movie. Instead we have terrorists trying to kidnap an heir's daughter and a US Marine trying to stop them amidst rushing water, excruciatingly bad dialog, lousy sets and mediocre visual effects. We even have sharks swimming around in a kitchen in a place where there is no obvious way they could have gotten there. Oooo! How original.
This is clearly a rip off of a far better film. The film even recognizes it halfway through when one of the bad guys on the ship gets upset about the situation and announces, "We're living in the Poseidon Adventure . . . , and I for one intend to be in Ernest Borgnine's group when they pop the hull and haul his fat butt out."
At least they admitted it.
There really isn't very much redeeming about this film. Not even the performance by the late James Coburn could do anything to help it. Then again, since his entire part in the movie involved him sitting helplessly on a Navy Aircraft Carrier and fuming at politicians, I suppose it's not much of a surprise.
The only good thing about this movie is the opening theme. It's sort of catchy.
About the DVD:
This budget DVD release comes in a plastic hard case in fullscreen (pan+scan) with Dolby Digital 5.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent movie May 21, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had no idea what this movie was about. I sure did enjoy it. Kind of a different plot. Killers after a woman thrown in with a capsized cruise ship. It had some humor in it as well. Well worth watching!

3.0 out of 5 stars SHARK HAD NO TEETH!!!! May 3, 2005
Format:DVD
DEEP WATER is certainly no "Poseidon Adventure" but for a tidal wave capsizing a luxury liner rip-off, it entertained me enough not to totally trash it. The funniest thing about the film is that when the shark makes its way onto the capsized vessel, he doesn't have any teeth. He must not be a killer shark, or else he gummed his victims to death?? Anyway, the late James Coburn took home a paycheck for his almost cameo role, and Finola Hughes was almost sexy as the villainous tv reporter. I think Larry Poindexter who played the supporting role of Lazo would have been better in the lead role played by Costas Mandylor. Larry seemed to be more of a heroic type and is basically a better actor than the somewhat hunkier Mandylor. Alex Hyde-White did not ooze enough villainry to be a good "Ghost" and there are no real surprises. DEEP WATER is a mediocre, but enjoyable little straight to DVDer!

3.0 out of 5 stars An extremely ambitious script! May 13, 2006
Format:DVD
This movie had all the dramatic factors to catch our attention and interest. A terrorist faction, an important girl to be watched and the always sensible nuclear premise.

But with such ties to disentangle, there is a hidden risk to dismiss one of the main ethic conflicts; unless you have a hidden Ace or may to lead the film over two hours and a half.

As whole entertainment the film is enjoyable to watch, but it could have been still better.
