Excerpt: This presentation looks true to most late 70's American films. Nice colors, a natural filmic look (not razer sharp), good levels of detail and a modest level of grain. There were a few scenes where detail seemed a bit too soft, perhaps due to the condition of the film elements, but certainly several...
Excerpt: I had my doubts about upgrading from my standard-def DVD for this title. I previewed the screenshots on this site and they bolstered my confidence somewhat, but it wasn't until I purchased and viewed the disc that I was fully assured.
Treasure-hunting story with good cast and wonderful underwater photography
24 May 2010
Summary: Suspenseful , thrilling and well-paced underwater adventure about divers who locate a a shipwrecked treasure and morphine . This is an intense and engrossing movie with agreeable performances and good rendering of maritime action .
Excerpt: I have never seen this movie before. One day it popped up in my suggestions on Netflix. I decided to give it a shot. Overall I liked this movie. I did think it was funny that it was called "The Deep" when they weren't very deep at all.
Excerpt: A nostalgic favorite of mine that looks better than ever on blu-ray. Some of the underwater shots are a little grainy but I believe that is due to original film quality. For Peter Benchley fans, this is leaps and bounds better than recently released "The Beast".
An old favorite that couldve been given better extras.

Excerpt: The Deep is an old favorite from when I was younger. Ive had this on VHS, Laserdisc and DVD. Ive always wanted extras but never had any till now. However Im disappointed that no commentary and most of all the deleted scenes arent here. Do do get 6 but why not all?!
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.
Treasure hunt underwater, romantic music of John Barry
25 July 2006
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. 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...
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.
