Summary: In spite of its many shortcomings (lazy direction, over-the-top acting, gratuitous violence, to name a few), you really HAVE to love this movie! Two years removed from the sensational release of JAWS, THE DEEP in many ways had some very big shoes to fill.
Summary: At first sight, "The Deep" has it all! A wonderful location, a treasure hunt, a hot chick and cool heroes with a nasty villain. How they managed to combine this elements into one of the most boring movies I ever saw is beyond me. "The Deep" is slow. Excruciatingly slow!

Summary: 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.

Summary: Films like 'The Deep' are few, sporadic, and are usually not accepted by many audience members, but are usually the films that end up meaning the most in the end. I found that this film had a charm that I could not put my finger on, upon viewing it for the first time.
Simplistic, suspenseful, scenicly breathtaking, - pure escapism. A 'Shaw' good time!

Summary: This movie has it all. I remember seeing this movie when it came out on TV.At the time I didn't know why I liked it so much, but now I know it was the ocean, the adventure, mystery, and intrigue. I just loved this movie. And I can't help it, I still do.
Summary: 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.
Mystery, intrigue and danger await Nick Nolte and Jacqueline
