Product Description

Product Description

An international terrorist plot to kidnap the daughter of an oil tycoon off an ocean liner goes awry after a nuclear test in near-by waters creates a massive tidal wave that capsizes the ship. Now, a group of survivors must fight their way through the upside-down maze of the ship’s corridors racing against the rising water, deadly sharks, and the terrorist leader still on board.

From the Back Cover

A capsized ocean liner, a kidnapped heiress, a terrorist leader and the U.S. Marines who take them all on-get ready for intense action deep in the water when Lt. Colonel Alan Decker (Costas Mandylor) finds himself in the middle of an international terrorist plot to kidnap the daughter of an oil tycoon. Terrorist leader Lazo orchestrates a nuclear test in nearby waters in an attempt to disable all airborne and surface surveillance equipment. But without warning, the blast creates a massive tidal wave that capsizes the ship, and threatens the lives of everyone on board. Now, Colonel Decker and Captain Josephson (James Coburn) are the only hope for survival and must make their way through the sinking ship to reach the ocean's surface before it's too late.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deep Story Sept. 18 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Documentary July 23 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Deep Debt Dec 4 2002
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sailing Into Oblivion... Jan. 19 2008
"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.
