In his book "Inside The Deep" (1977), producer Peter Guber said of the film's source novel by Peter Benchley: "While the tale lacked, as one critic would later put it, 'the maxillary crunch of Jaws,' it was a good, compelling story in its own right and the filmic possibilities practically leaped off the pages".

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
