Audience Reviews for Beneath the 12-Mile Reef
Beautiful underwater photography but hokey beyond belief!
wagner wears a ridiculous curly-haired wig in this (he's italian, guys) but you forgive him cuz he's got such a nice smile
Interesting to see Wagner as a young man. The performances were well done, good as the acting of the day required. The movie is based around a toiling sea farming business that environmentalist would have a breakdown watching: sea sponge extraction. The backdrop to the movie however could have been about almost any other industry and the conflict anf the story could still make sense. Wagner is lovely on the screen and brings a lot of energy. The story is a strong one but some things are left open to speculation and could have been tightened up with more time or a passing word here or there. I enjoyed this movie just to see Wagner youthful but turned out to learn omething about an industry I should have known much more about. This film could be remade and it would still have a grab to a new audience.
