Even the endless shots of bronzed beach babes and buffed dudes can't keep this soggy scuba flick's plot from drowning.

While both are happy with their lives in the islands, Jared dreams of finding a major score and living the high life. One day, Jared and Sam are paid a visit by Bryce Dunn (Scott

A glitzy little B-movie.

I don't think there's anything wrong with an escapist adventure, but if you're rolling your eyes in disbelief at the plot and the dialogue, it makes it hard to enjoy the scenery.

It takes Stockwell forever to get these details into place, because he's primarily concerned with Caribbean and bikini-clad eye candy. But even that loses its novelty in a ridiculous showcase like this.

The makers of Into the Blue know what the audience wants. And they deliver a little bit more.

Alba? We'd follow her anywhere, especially Into the Blue.

Into the Blue is fun to watch because it's, well, fun to watch - particularly when its stars dive into the blue in their various skimpy bathing suits (which they do often), but it's not much of thriller.

Even as pure eye-candy "Into The Blue" is a miserable failure.

Not exactly awful, just flashy and stupid.

the characters seem as shallow as the waters through which they paddle.

An unpretentious film that delivers more than the trailers might suggest.

Stockwell fails even to define major plot points, leaving us to figure them out later from the dialogue.

A B-grade joy as deep-tanned and sun-kissed as a Club Tropics promo.

There is not one redeeming quality to this movie

December 26, 2005 Full Review Source:

Reminsicient of nothing more than several wealthy persons' salaried vacation trip, Into the Blue is an absolutely merciless chore of a movie.

December 21, 2005 Full Review Source:

Not a great movie by any stretch of the imagination, but certainly one that offers enough eye-candy and cheap thrills to entertain...

[The film is] bad that I found myself almost nodding out during long scenes of Alba swimming underwater in a skimpy suit.

November 23, 2005

A brainless, forgettable thriller that quickly sinks without a trace, despite an attractive cast and gorgeous photography.

If the serious critic in me weren't fighting to be heard there'd be an extra two stars to give out.

Every time [Alba] dives into the ocean, you expect to see her bobbing back up to the surface like an old plank.

Into the Blue is a fine-looking, often boring, eye candy palace to visit. Until the languid turquoise sea churns into a crimson tide, that is.

October 17, 2005

A rather ludicrous story about sunken treasure and illicit drugs, Into The Blue has as its main attractions the beautiful bodies of Paul Walker and Jessica Alba.

Lumbers in circles before crashing into a surprisingly sadistic finale.

Audience Reviews for Into the Blue

Pretty bad but not awful. This is mainly due to the likes of Scott Caan, James Frain and the great Josh Brolin. It is hard to imagine what Josh Brolin was thinking when he took on this role as his scenes were some of the only interesting things in this film. Also shots of topless Paul Walker and various other desirable men make it watchable.

A cool movie with the lives of cool people involved! It doesn't seem that great, but I enjoyed it, even though I know I shouldn't!

Awesome movie and seeing it again was a nice treat once again.

Jared Cole and his girlfriend Sam Nicholson are a young couple living in the Caribbean. Jared is an unemployed diver whose dream is to find treasure in the Caribbean Sea and Sam works at a local resort as a shark handler. When Jared's best friend Bryce Dunn, a selfish New York lawyer and his new girlfriend Amanda Collins arrive, the two couples spend a couple of days experiencing paradise. But, they discover an airplane on the sea floor that crashed during a hurricane and they find the cargo on-board the airplane is cocaine. Jared and Sam's lives are in danger, when Bryce and Amanda make a deal with a dangerous drug lord who wants the cocaine. Jared's rival, Treasure Hunter Derek Bates learns what they are doing and tries to negotiate the cocaine to raise money for a expedition where he intends to find a sunken boat with treasure. Jared, Sam, Bryce, and Amanda find themselves racing against time to find the shipwreck before somebody else does.
