Into the Blue

2006-07-13 10:24


The world's oceans hold over $6 billion in treasure, most of it in less than 60 feet of water ... still waiting to be found.

Jared (Paul Walker) is a part-time treasure hunter who dreams of striking it rich. His girlfriend, Sam (Jessica Alba), has already realized her dream, working as a shark handler at a resort.

The happy couple's lives are irrevocably changed when Bryce (Scott Caan), Jared's childhood friend comes to Jamaica with his girlfriend Amanda (Ashley Scott). Bryce buys a luxury yacht that the quartet puts to good use to hunt for treasure.

When they discover a plane wreck filled with cocaine, Jared and Sam want no part of it. Bryce and Amanda, on the other hand, see it as a way of financing their expedition. They steal some of the cargo and sell it to a shady nightclub owner, Primo (Tyson Beckford). But Primo has other ideas and threatens to kill them unless the deliver the whole cargo to him.

Now, what began as a carefree treasure hunt turns into a deadly battle and Jared and Sam's innocent world is thrown into chaos.

What the critics are saying:

"...appreciation of beauty (or being lecherous) can only take you so far, before the trite story - about treasure hunters in the Bahamas - wears away your interest. It's best saved for DVD."
- Andy Jacobs, BBC Movies

"Not a thriller so much as an extremely violent swimsuit calendar."
- Justin Chang, Variety

"The most improbable of movies, a comic thriller set in the Bahamas in which Walker and Alba bare enough flesh to seduce us into thinking they've bared pieces of their souls."
- Wesley Morris, Boston Globe

"An enjoyable, gorgeously photographed aquatic adventure whose stars are blissfully bodacious."
- Jami Bernard, New York Daily News
