A pair of young vacationers are involved in a dangerous conflict with treasure hunters when they discover a way into a deadly wreck in Bermuda waters. Featuring extended underwater sequences and a look into the affairs of treasure hunting. Based on a novel by Peter 'Jaws' Benchley. Written by
In the scene right after Gail had the voodoo encounter in her hotel room, we see Sanders (Nick Nolte) sitting and talking with Treece. He is toying with a cigar in his fingers. The cigar is wrapped in its protective plastic/cellophane wrapper. The view goes to a closeup of Sanders running the cigar under his nose to smell it, and we see the cigar is clearly bare - no longer wrapped in its plastic wrapper. Then the camera angle goes back to the long shot, and Sanders is once again toying with the cigar, only now it's in the cellophane wrapper. See more »
Treasure hunt underwater, romantic music of John Barry
I have the movie on Video, would buy it on DVD, I have read all the other reviews and surprised nobody mentioned the great music by John Barry. The theme made it to the radio top hits in 1977 For me, the music makes this movie, together with the three main stars including Shaw, Nolte and the beautiful Jacqueline Bisset. Is there an actress today quite so stunning? Don't think so... The Deep probably did not have the impact of Peter Benchley's Jaws but I like it just as much. The music is more melodic, the warmer location Bermuda, in contrast to the cooler Cape Cod of Jaws. I always appreciate a good treasure hunt anyway, Spanish doubloons and the possibility of reef predators adds interest. Watch it just to see Bisset in skimpy scuba swimsuit... you won't be disappointed
