Gail Berke: Do you think this is it?
[Treece appears]
Romer Treece: Well, it isn't a bloody tourist trap! What do you want?
David Sanders: Mr. Treece?
Romer Treece: Indeed.
David Sanders: Ah. Well, Mr. Treece, a friend of ours was doing some diving around here about a month ago, and he found a Spanish coin, that was dated 1714, and he told us to talk to you.

Action, Adventure, Mystery, Drama, and Treasure to boot
14 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

This movie has it all. I remember seeing this movie when it came out on TV.At the time I didn't know why I liked it so much, but now I know it was the ocean, the adventure, mystery, and intrigue. I just loved this movie. And I can't help it, I still do. I love the ocean scenes, and Nick Nolte's acting (not to mention Jacqueline's). I just ran across the DVD at Wally World for $5.50 and I had to buy it. I got a lot of enjoyment out of this movie and I have to give it a 10/10. I felt that all the acting was just fine including Robert Shaw's. I think that anyone who likes islands, adventure, scuba diving for gold, and beautiful woman will enjoy this movie.
