As a lover of Documentary, this is one of my all time favourites. It's a story that even the best screen writers would be challenged to write - only this one is true. I highly recommend this film to anyone interested in the challenge of the mind and the challenges of the Sea.

This documentary is made of actual interviews with Crowhurst (prior to the race) and the other sailors. This includes modern-day interviews with the (now older) sailors and his widow and son. It's a fairly complete picture of a man in desparate financial trouble, taking on a costly voyage beyond his skills. Crowhurst was a man unable to adjust to the single-handed voyage and it got the best of him. He persuaded himself to cheat, and then to take his own life, rather than face his family and the media at the finish.

My guess is they lost money on this one. Although James Coburn certainly turns in a good performance as the Captain of a Navy Aircraft Carrier, we don't see that much of him. Costas Mandylor tries hard as a macho Navy Seal but just can't carry the movie by himself. The rest of the perfomances are mediocre. It comes close to being a worthy film but doesn't quite make it. I think a good acting bad man like John Lithgow or Gary Oldman would have made it work, but the group of kidnappers aboard the cruise ship just don't have what it takes.

"Nowdays...you can pinpoint your position to a few feet on any portion of the globe. In the 60's that just wasn't the case. Don Crowhurst sailed over the horizon and effectively into oblivion." --- Deep Water

GPS - open any map and we can know exactly where we are on the globe today. For those of us who were learning to navigate land and sea in the 1960's, it just was not so. Few amateurs knew how to use a sextant; nor could the average person afford one. For the most part, on any given day we knew where we were relative to other landmarks around us. But the thought that you could know precisely to the foot where you were eluded all but the most sophisticated. And the exact same was true for how the majority of people defined their social and personal identity as well...and I am not speaking metaphorically, either.

Today my children take their GPS for granted. The world is mapped...every square inch. Today we know where we are not in relation to something else, but just in relation to where we are...which defines to us where everything else is. And beyond the physical description of where we are, today my children know and can articulate the manner in which their culture, and their society, and their family shapes them. But it was not so in the 1960's...it was not so. When Donald Crowhurst sailed over the horizon, he indeed sailed not only into a geographical oblivion, he also sailed off the social map in a very real way. And as we bid him farewell, we who grew up back then were as certain of this geographically, as we were socially.

It's interesting that today Western culture advocates venturing over social horizons so glibly. The assumption is that in so doing, self-disclosure awaits.

Decent movie May 21 2009
By Gregory J. Burton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I had no idea what this movie was about. I sure did enjoy it. Kind of a different plot. Killers after a woman thrown in with a capsized cruise ship. It had some humor in it as well. Well worth watching!

Not so deep junk March 10 2003
By S. Lawrenz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
About the Movie:
From the stacks of "you get what you pay for" comes this rather awful b-grade direct to video movie.
Deep Water sloshes through water parted 30 years ago by one of the classic adventure films of the late 20th century, Poseidon Adventure. Like Poseidon, it involves a cruiseliner that is hit by a tidal wave and capsizes. Like Poseidon, everyone dies except maybe 5 people. Like Poseidon, the only way to get out is to travel up to the lower hull to escape.
Deep water tries to be unique by adding guns and bad guys. There's no Gene Hackman yelling at God in this movie. Instead we have terrorists trying to kidnap an heir's daughter and a US Marine trying to stop them amidst rushing water, excruciatingly bad dialog, lousy sets and mediocre visual effects. We even have sharks swimming around in a kitchen in a place where there is no obvious way they could have gotten there. Oooo! How original.
This is clearly a rip off of a far better film. The film even recognizes it halfway through when one of the bad guys on the ship gets upset about the situation and announces, "We're living in the Poseidon Adventure . . . , and I for one intend to be in Ernest Borgnine's group when they pop the hull and haul his fat butt out."
At least they admitted it.
There really isn't very much redeeming about this film. Not even the performance by the late James Coburn could do anything to help it. Then again, since his entire part in the movie involved him sitting helplessly on a Navy Aircraft Carrier and fuming at politicians, I suppose it's not much of a surprise.
The only good thing about this movie is the opening theme. It's sort of catchy.
About the DVD:
This budget DVD release comes in a plastic hard case in fullscreen (pan+scan) with Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound. The video quality is decent.
Like many budget DVDs, it lists its interactive menus and inclusion of scene selections, subtitles and theatrical trailers as Bonus Features. Strange how they call them Bonus Features, when 99.9% of DVD releases have them.
Bottom line? Get the Poseidon Adventure instead. It's a far more entertaining and a far better movie than this halfhearted ripoff of it. 1 lonely star.
deep water July 4 2012

Mah, la storia fa veramente pena, Coburn è bravo come sempre anche se in là con l'età . il resto degli attorucoli e la storia in se è proprio insipida.
An extremely ambitious script! May 13 2006
By Hiram Gomez Pardo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This movie had all the dramatic factors to catch our attention and interest. A terrorist faction, an important girl to be watched and the always sensible nuclear premise.

But with such ties to disentangle, there is a hidden risk to dismiss one of the main ethic conflicts; unless you have a hidden Ace or may to lead the film over two hours and a half.

As whole entertainment the film is enjoyable to watch, but it could have been still better.
