Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

An obvious attempt to cash in on the success of Jaws, this 1977 thriller was also based on a bestseller by Peter Benchley, and it features a memorable performance by Robert Shaw (the doomed shark hunter in Jaws) in one of the last roles of his career. Looking very tanned and healthy, Nick Nolte and Jacqueline Bisset play a young couple enjoying a tropical vacation who discover a glass ampoule while scuba diving off the coast of Bermuda. It takes a seasoned treasure hunter (Shaw) to identify the ampoule as part of a valuable shipment of World War II morphine lost at sea, coincidentally, atop the even greater treasure of a sunken Spanish galleon. Thus begins a race for drugs and treasure pitting Nolte, Bisset, and Shaw against a ruthless drug lord (Louis Gossett Jr.) who'll do anything--even resort to Haitian voodoo--to get what he wants. It's all rather contrived and exploitative (after all, the movie's best known for Bisset's wet T-shirt scuba-dive), but as escapist entertainment goes it's got some exciting highlights including a moray eel that attacks on cue and... well, uh, Jacqueline Bisset in a wet T-shirt. --Jeff Shannon

2.0 out of 5 stars This DVD is missing some footage February 7, 2002
Format:DVD
There is a scene in this film wherein Robert Shaw's character, Romer Treece, discovers the body of a friend strung up in a shed, gently lowers it to the floor, and covers the body with his coat. Treece, overcome with grief, then drops to his knees and hugs his friend's lifeless body. On this DVD, the scene ends after Treece covers the body with his coat. The footage that is supposed to follow is missing from both the widescreen and full screen presentations on this disc, so viewers don't get to see a very powerful and emotional moment. Also, this DVD is a no-frills release, with just the widescreen version on one side and the full screen version on the other--no trailers, nothing. Perhaps at some point there might be a special edition or director's cut which will restore the missing footage. I can't recommend this title in its current DVD incarnation.

Format:Blu-ray
Before "The Island", "Into the Blue" and "The Beach", there was the 1977 underwater suspenseful thriller known as "The Deep".

Based on the very popular novel by Peter Benchley (who wrote the popular novel "Jaws" and "The Island" which both would receive film adaptions), the suspenseful aquatic film adaption would be directed by Peter Yates ("Krull", "Roommates" and "Bullit") and a screenplay by Benchley and Tracy Keenan Wynn ("The Net", "The Longest Yard" and "The Glass House"). The film would feature the music by John Barry ("Indecent Proposal", "Madagascar", "The Scarlet Letter" and "Dances with Wolves") and cinematography by Christopher Challis ("Force 10 from Navarone", "Two for the Road" and "Top Secret!").

The film would star Robert Shaw ("Force 10 from Navarone", "Jaws" and "The Sting"), Jacqueline Biset ("Nip/Tuck", "Joan of Arc", "Bullit" and "When Time Ran Out"), Nick Nolte ("The Prince of Tides", "Hulk" and "48 Hrs.") and Louis Gossett Jr. ("Iron Eagle", "Diggstown" and "Roots").

The film revolves around a scuba diving couple, David Sanders (Nick Nolte) and Gail Berke (Jacqueline Bisset) who found the wreckage of the Goliath (a ship that sunk during World War II in Bermuda). The two start to look at the artifacts found and discover a medallion from 1714. During the search at the wreckage, something has grabbed Gail and tried to pull her in but she manages to escape.

When the two return from their search, because of the belongings they found, they start to make certain locals suspicious of their actions. With their research into the medallion going nowhere, the group enlist the help of lighthouse-keeper and treasure hunter Romer Treece (Robert Shaw).

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun Film - Bad Presentation March 21, 2005
By turtlex
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This inexpensive run of "The Deep" is really a no-frills version. There is only the FULL SCREEN presentation here and that is disappointing, since one of the big things this film has going for it is the wonderful underwater photography. The story and plot are actually a good one - missing treasure, treasure hunters, bad guys and good guys. I always disagreed with those indicating it was a rip-off of "Jaws". The story isn't close and the only thing in common is that it takes place in the water. This film can really stand on it's own. It's a pity this DVD didn't do it justice. All in all - a good movie, a bad presentation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forget Into the Blue, this is a much better movie ! January 22, 2006
Format:DVD
2005 remake of the Deep (into the blue) is not bad. But the Deep (1977) is a much better film. The photography is much nicer, and in my humble opinion, even the sexy Jessica Alba is no match to miss Bisset in her prime. And Louis Gosset Jr is one of the best villain of all time in this movie. The treasure hunt story is OK, predictable but quite entertaining. The new budget DVD is presented only in Full Screen which is a big disappointment, find the older release which include both WS and FS Version. Highly recommended and did I mention Bisset's Wet T Shirt. Classic.

An okay transfer of the movie on a bare-bones DVD.

Unfortunately, the makers of this disc decided NOT to include the 53 minutes of additional footage that was shown on the NBC broadcast of this film. This additional 53 minutes shows the sinking of the U-Boat during a storm, along with some additional fighting scenes.

Hoperfully a Special Edition of this film will be released that will feature either an extended cut or offer the deleted scenes seperately.

5.0 out of 5 stars They don't make 'em this good anymore! July 26, 2002
Format:DVD
A brilliant and engrossing movie which closely follows Peter Benchley's novel on treasure hunt in the carribean. Spectacular views and under-water footage, all accented by one of John Barry's finest musical scores which lends mystery and expectation to various scenes and sustains an atmosphere of suspense throughout the movie. Top performances by Robert Shaw and Louis Gosset. Even Nick Nolte and Jaqueline Bisset were at their best, the latter sporting a semi-transparent underwater mask so that you're positive no stuntwoman was employed for the under water scenes. Elli Walsh is at his usual sleezy best. Great movie and great music. See it!

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE THIS MOVIE! June 18, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
The Deep was one of the first movies i ever saw at the cinema, and i loved every minute of it, and twenty years later i still watch it and get the same enjoyment i did all those years ago. The film has everything in it you could want if you love or even just like the sea. The under water scenes, the romance between the two leading characters and the whole escapism of this movie is wonderful. The film rolls along at a very good pace and its just too easy to sit back and really believe your there, yes REALLY! I was David Sanders the lead character in the movie, and Jacaline Bisset still takes my breath away, pwrooooooor. Do they still make movies like this?
