Most people should avoid buying this DVD and/or immediately expel it from their Netflix queue. While not without charm, it is not a watchable movie. It really should never have been released at all. Yet, despite my giving it one star, I don't regret seeing it. However I cannot, in good conscience, recommend it for a general audience.

"The Deep Below" is a poorly made movie. And I don't mean that minor problems tainted what was an otherwise okay movie. Rather we are talking severe structural issues that render it hopelessly stillborn. Yet through the miraculous, if necromantic midwifery of Amazon, it is available for anyone to view nevertheless. Not only is the movie misbegotten, but this movie was simply not finished. Really. Some examples of what I mean follow.

Many scenes lack dialog partially or entirely. I guess it is possible the sound balance was way out of whack. But I don't think so. While watching the movie I frequently saw what looked to me like missing dialog that was meant to be ADR-ed in later. For example, there is a scene where Dohring appears to be mumbling unintelligibly. Perfect technique in the unlikely event that a director instructed you to pretend to say something that can be looped in later--once the script was firmed up a bit. Apparently "later" never came.

More evidence that the movie is not complete: special effects needed to carry the plot are simply missing. For example, in a climactic scene late in the movie, Will Taylor's (Dohring) friends rescue him from an underwater vault in which he is trapped by ripping the door off the vault with a speed boat. As ridiculous as that might seem, try to imagine how such a scene would play with no footage of the vault door.

Because I'm a HUGE fan of Marina Sirtis I knew That I'd love the movie and then as an added bonus Michael Dorn was in it ad well. Followerd both actors from Stat Trek:TNG, so I knew it was gonna be great. I was very happy with the outcome of the movie. Very happy I purchased the DVD.

"Will Taylor (Jason Dohring) has nightmares about watching his father and aunt being murdered when he was only four years old. Will lives with his troubled uncle Joe Mitchell (Jeff Corbett) because his mother remains catatonic from the attack. Joe, who has his own problems with his girlfriend Sarah (Marina Sirtis), has raised Will since the bank robbery that killed his wife and brother-in-law. Back in 1990 the whole town of Canyon Hills had to be moved because a new dam was built to prevent chronic flooding. The original town is now at the bottom of the lake. Will finds out that the stolen bank money was never found and begins diving to recover it and his past. Enter Carl Bennett (Michael Dorn), the bank robber turned murderer. Just released from prison, he is heading for Canyon Hills to recover the money he left behind. Who will get to it first? Written by CG Cristo"
