***Okay, but lackluster island/oceanic treasure-hunting adventure***
A vacationing couple in Bermuda (Nick Nolte & Jacqueline Bisset) comes upon a sunken WW2 ship whereupon they find an ampule of morphine, one of myriad aboard the wreck. This stirs up the interest of a Haitian drug dealer (Louis Gossett Jr.) and an old treasure hunter (Robert Shaw). Eli Wallach and Robert Tessier are on hand as friends of the old salt.
“The Deep” (1977) was based on author Peter Benchley’s follow-up to his mega-successful “Jaws” and was successful at the box office due to that momentum. However, it’s nowhere near great like that book/film. Similar oceanic adventure/thrillers include “Into the Blue” (2005), which is practically a remake of “The Deep,” and “Fool’s Gold” (2008), as well as the direct-to-video “Into the Blue 2: The Reef” (2009). The latter, believe it or not, is easily the best of the lot; it has the most compelling story and the best women, which proves that you don’t need ginormous–bucks and mega-stars to make a quality flick of this ilk.
This one is realistic, but the story lacks drive and I was never able to warm up to the three main characters for some odd reason. Bisset is serviceable, but she never did anything for me, although she has gorgeous eyes and no one can deny the formidableness of her bosom.
The movie runs 2 hours, 3 minutes, and was shot in Bermuda; RMS Rhone Wreck, British Virgin Islands; and Australia.
Stylish but sadly lacking any substance.
No doubting that The Deep was a film hoping to cash in on the monster success of Jaws two summers previously. Written by Jaws author Peter Benchley, The Deep on the page is never fully realised here on the screen, and sadly the film never lifts itself out of standard adventure territory.
From the onset it looked to be heading in the right direction, a great first hour of genuine intrigue and tension keeps the viewer interested, where we have ship wrecks, treasure, voodoo, a gorgeous locale, a gruff Robert Shaw and Jacqueline Bisset’s wet t-shirt! but the film drifts onto formulaic sand and peters out like a damp squib (or should that be squid?).
Lovely to look at (the underwater sequences are gorgeous), and the acting is fine enough from all of the leads, yet a meandering drug plot only has one wishing that a big shark would come and swallow the whole bloody picture and regurgitate it with a bit more oomph and passion. 5/10
Mystery, intrigue and danger await Nick Nolte and Jacqueline
Nick Nolte and Jacqueline Bisset star in this solid “B” movie, meant to entertain not challenge the average movie goer. Allow your mind to suspend reality for a couple of hours, and enjoy “The Deep” for what it is. Fans of Robert Shaw, Louis Gossett, Jr. and Eli Wallach will be pleased to see them on screen, but less than satisfied with their weak parts.
When first released, the scenery above and below the water in “The Deep” proved to be amazing. Jacqueline Bisset appeared draped in a wet t-shirt, causing audience members everywhere to either gasp, gulp or sigh. Accompanied by multiple tropical fish, Ms. Bisset’s underwater scenes are just as satisfying.
My recollections of seeing “The Deep” for the first time in the theater, include sitting in the front row with head bent backwards, watching oversize tropical fish swimming back and forth across the screen. I get a hint of a stiff neck every time I review the movie in my head!
I do recommend you rent or buy “The Deep.” Pop up some popcorn, put your feet up and just let yourself be immersed in this entertaining and gorgeous at times, movie. — M. Nels Pearson
Like it like it like it
Saw this on HBO with my parents one vacation. I like this movie, it has a story which includes suspenses, horror, mystery and action. Not too many movies have this combination. Great acting by Shaw, his role is on par with Jaws. The under water filming is the best of any under water film. Then tension and fear with the under water scenes leave an impression on one’s mind. A classic shown on TBS late night, I will tape the next time I see it on. They usually show the movie The Island afterwards, I never seen that one; I wonder if it is any good being the second feature. Rent it, tape it, or buy it! You will not be disappointed. 8/10
