Conclusion: 'The Deep' may not be a great lost masterpiece, but it's an entertaining couple of hours that have held up pretty well in the three decades since the movie's release. The Blu-ray has a very fine video transfer that emphasizes Jacqueline Bisset's stunning assets like never before. The sound quality is just acceptable, and the bonus features are only somewhat interesting.
Conclusion: The Deep delivers a good, but not strong, story. It also features decent if not sometimes clumsy pacing, solid but not memorable acting, and just enough mystery and danger to keep things interesting. "Average" describes The Deep in a nutshell, it's very existence defined by a collection of mediocre-to-decent pieces that come together for a sometimes fun, almost always intriguing, and worthwhile movie experience.
