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

Any excuse will do to ogle Jessica Alba's behind . . .

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

A glitzy little B-movie.

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

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

Better than it has to be.

Occasionally the action is so pulsing that we forget the actors are only half-clothed.

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

There is nothing about Into the Blue that is going to arouse anything above the waistline, but director Stockwell makes a fair show of it.

The cast is little more than the sum total of golden skin, firm flesh and blindingly white teeth, but in a film that demands them to be half-naked and soaking wet most of the time, looks trump technical acting skill every time.

Buff bods. Fantastic fish. Silly thriller twists, trolled along at a leisurely but increasingly suspenseful pace. Some funny lines and a shark attack or two. Did we mention there are buff bods?

An enjoyable, gorgeously photographed aquatic adventure whose stars are blissfully bodacious.

Manages to create a winning Caribbean vibe that stretches into a fun popcorn flick.

This one tells a hoary tale of Caribbean salvage operators dedicated to hunting sunken treasure on the ocean floor. But the true salvager is the guy behind the camera. John Stockwell has already flashed his talent for rescuing B-material.

This is about as standard a collection of thriller clichés as has ever been committed to film. Still, the settings are amazing (above and below the ocean), while Paul Walker and Jessica Alba look better in bathing suits than ought to be allowed.

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.

...lurking underneath the sleek and fashionable veneer is a not half-bad little morality play.

Ultimately, Into the Blue isn't nearly as bad as it looks.
