Sam and Jared are a young couple in the Bahamas, divers and aspiring treasure hunters. While the arrogant salvager Bates has loads of expensive equipment, Jared gets by with a small, battered boat. Jared and Sam find a historic wreck, but nearby is a wrecked airplane with a large quantity of cocaine. Jared and Sam want the treasure; their diving partners also want the drugs. Dangerous criminals realize the plane and cocaine are submerged somewhere in the area. When the bad guys learn that the couple has located the drugs, Jared and Sam find themselves in mortal peril.

User Review

Well-paced fun

Rating: 8/10

I was astonished at the dismal rating for this film, which at the time
of this writing was 4.8. Into the Blue never demonstrated any pretense
of becoming the next academy award winner, and instead faithfully
executed its focus — beautiful ocean scenery, beautiful bodies, and a
significant degree of tension and action to carry the plot. I found the
characters believable, especially given the target audience of the
movie: the dialog was fairly cleverly humorous, but serious when it
needed to be; the characters were adequately conceived, including the
intentionally unlikeable 4th party woman who "wasn't family." Most of
all, I enjoyed the pacing of the movie. Some slow underwater scenes
were accompanied by peaceful music belying the increasingly perilous
situations the characters found themselves in. Halfway through the
movie, the tension never fully dissipates, as each event flows into the
next as the stakes rise. The badguys are dealt with intelligently, and
there are enough twists to convincingly carry the instability and
danger of the situation.

I went into this movie wanting to enjoy it, and I wasn't disappointed.
Though its premise wasn't the most intellectual of premises, I don't
feel as if it were dumbed down as much as many action movies do, and
instead carried out is plot with due respect given its expectations.
I'd recommend this movie as a good post-summer adventure flick!
