Product Description


An obvious attempt to cash in on the success of Jaws, this 1977 thriller was also based on a bestseller by Peter Benchley, and it features a memorable performance by Robert Shaw (the doomed shark hunter in Jaws) in one of the last roles of his career. Looking very tanned and healthy, Nick Nolte and Jacqueline Bisset play a young couple enjoying a tropical vacation who discover a glass ampoule while scuba diving off the coast of Bermuda. It takes a seasoned treasure hunter (Shaw) to identify the ampoule as part of a valuable shipment of World War II morphine lost at sea, coincidentally, atop the even greater treasure of a sunken Spanish galleon. Thus begins a race for drugs and treasure pitting Nolte, Bisset, and Shaw against a ruthless drug lord (Louis Gossett Jr.) who'll do anything--even resort to Haitian voodoo--to get what he wants. It's all rather contrived and exploitative (after all, the movie's best known for Bisset's wet T-shirt scuba-dive), but as escapist entertainment goes it's got some exciting highlights including a moray eel that attacks on cue and... well, uh, Jacqueline Bisset in a wet T-shirt. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars They don't make 'em this good anymore! July 26 2002
A brilliant and engrossing movie which closely follows Peter Benchley's novel on treasure hunt in the carribean. Spectacular views and under-water footage, all accented by one of John Barry's finest musical scores which lends mystery and expectation to various scenes and sustains an atmosphere of suspense throughout the movie. Top performances by Robert Shaw and Louis Gosset. Even Nick Nolte and Jaqueline Bisset were at their best, the latter sporting a semi-transparent underwater mask so that you're positive no stuntwoman was employed for the under water scenes. Elli Walsh is at his usual sleezy best. Great movie and great music. See it!

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME! Dec 22 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I have loved this movie for years, in fact it inspired me to move to the British Virgin Islands where a lot of the under water scenes were filmed on the RMS Rhone. The new Blue Ray format is beautiful and the colours and cinematography are really evident now, versus the old VHS version I had.

Great story and acting...a must see in my opinion!

A pair of young vacationers (Romer Treece as Robert Shaw & Gail Berke As Jacqueline Bisset) are involved in a dangerous conflict with treasure hunters when they discover a way into a deadly Caribbean wreck ...
Very good underwater scenes if you think 70's ...
A must for Horror , Mystery , Adventure , Thriller lovers ...

3.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful photography, and that's about it May 16 2002
The Deep grabs your attention in the first ten minutes, which shows Jacqueline Bisset and Nick Nolte scuba diving, and Bisset's wearing a.....well, you probably already know. The underwater photography throughout this movie is gorgeous, but the action that happens on land, I felt, was kind of fake and somewhat improbable. The story is interesting, though, but it could've been told in the film better. The book by Peter Benchley is good, though. The film's worth watching for the underwater photography.....and the first 10 minutes.

3.0 out of 5 stars The true sequal to JAWS. April 20 2002
Forget Jaws II, III, or IV. This film by Peter Bates was about as close to a good sequal to Jaws as they could get. Also based on a book by Peter Benchley, with Robert Shaw pretty much carrying the whole movie with his performance, great underwater photography, and enough of a story to keep a person watching to the end.

2.0 out of 5 stars This DVD is missing some footage Feb. 7 2002
There is a scene in this film wherein Robert Shaw's character, Romer Treece, discovers the body of a friend strung up in a shed, gently lowers it to the floor, and covers the body with his coat. Treece, overcome with grief, then drops to his knees and hugs his friend's lifeless body. On this DVD, the scene ends after Treece covers the body with his coat. The footage that is supposed to follow is missing from both the widescreen and full screen presentations on this disc, so viewers don't get to see a very powerful and emotional moment. Also, this DVD is a no-frills release, with just the widescreen version on one side and the full screen version on the other--no trailers, nothing. Perhaps at some point there might be a special edition or director's cut which will restore the missing footage. I can't recommend this title in its current DVD incarnation.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well Shot March 24 2001
Format:VHS Tape
This movie is well shot its photography is outstanding. Bisset is gorgeous, in this movie watch it even for her. Quint from JAWS shows up but his performance not as good as in JAWS. Nick Nolte is real 70's. The plot though is O.K. Its not the greatest movie I think youll ever see but enough to keep you awake. Even a guy from JAWS 3 shows up in this flick I think his name is Louis Gosset Junior I dont know this guys name but he is in it. Alot of stars in it but an O.K movie about some treasure underwater.

The Deep is a very interesting little yarn about deep sea treasure that Peter Benchley released hot off the success of "Jaws" So again we get a sea monster (moray eel) and a clean shaven, back from the dead Captain Quint, as Robert Shaw basically plays that character again with as much gusto as he did in Jaws. In the place of Dreyfuss and Scheider, we get a young looking Nolte, and an incredibly sexy Jacqueline Bisset...wet t-shirt notwithstanding, "Gail" just oozes sexuality/sensuality just standing around. Powerful supporting cast with crusty Eli Wallach, and an evil Louis Gosset Jr. I believe this film would have been better off with a hard "R" rating, as Bisset parades around showing off her best assets the entire film anyhow! There was also a sexy scene with her and Nolte that could have been made more elaborate, and would have only added to the film...but overall, it was very enjoyable to see Robert Shaw chew up the scenery one last time!
