The video quality is superb, particularly the underwater shots. The water is superbly clear, and the contrast between the white sands and the blue sky mirrored against the ocean jumps out at you in bluray. The sea life is photo real. What makes it better than real life is the supplemental lighting used so there are much more colors than blue at the depth the video was taken. If you want to push great colors and PCM sound as a demo of interest to adults, this is it.
The main con is the movie story is predictable and ordinary. The main pro is underwater photography and lots of Jessica Alba in her prime.
NOW FOR MY BLU RAY THOUGHTS: A beautiful transfer. The power of blu is evident in all the underwater sequences. On DVD the scenes look pixelated in areas of darkness. That is not the case with BD. The audio is also a nice mix. SPECIAL FEATURES: All ported over from DVD. FINAL THOUGHTS: Jessica Alba in a bikini in HD = UPGRADE!
Otherwise... the movie was actually really good and I credit the director, John Stockwell, who is also known for acting stints in Top Gun, Christine & My Science Project. FOR ONCE!! A DIRECTOR TREATED US LIKE WE ARE INTELLIGENT BEINGS AND DIDN'T CHEAT US! No, movies most important job isn't to inform, but they are supposed to be realistic. After watching INTO THE BLUE, I had a better understanding of the DIVE trade and it was completely necessary to move the movie along.
Stockwell did his homework. He cared about the audience and cared that they know what was going on. He didn't preach or bog the story down with diving lessons, he made diving and what they had to do part of the story.
Stockwell shot a beautiful movie with wonderful underwater scenes that are engrossing and sharp. Not to mention, necessary story movers.
Not only did he deliver the goods with the diving scenes, he delivered with a sharp story about modern day ocean pirates, club life, drug life and WHAT TRULY MAKES A person successful? Is it money? or is it Love?
You know what. I hope Hollywood stops giving these great idea movies to the Emmerichs and Bays of the worlds and starts giving more of these movies to people like Stockwell. Directors that don't insult our intelligence, do their homework and understand that movies have to be more than just an explosion here and there. It has to be sensible. Fine job and I'm looking forward to owning this one on DVD.
