More Info:
  • Roger Ebert

    Offers modest pleasures. It is not an essential film, but if you go to see it, it will not insult your intelligence, and there's genuine suspense toward the end.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Jami Bernard

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

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    Into the Blue is as much a mesmerizing aquatic expedition as it is a reasonably suspenseful action adventure.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Rick Groen

    Stockwell takes an especially leaden screenplay, floats the dull thing up from the depths of mediocrity, and makes it cinematically buoyant. Within limits, that is.

  • Allison Benedikt

    Mad props to Peter Zuccarini, who headed the team of ocean-bound photographers and captured some remarkably vivid footage, and also to the actors, who spend plenty of time looking cool, calm and collected swimming with the predatory fishes.

  • Steven Rea

    It's "The Deep" reimagined as an Abercrombie catalog.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    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.

    Let's be honest: Whether it's Jessica Alba or Paul Walker you're dying to see stripped down to her/his sexiest swimwear, there's only one reason anyone is interested in diving Into the Blue.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Ian Nathan

    The Academy might not be troubled, but at times Into The Blue's wet Hollywood bodies really hit the spot.

    Empire Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    In the thriller Into the Blue, the Bahamian waters dazzle the eye. They are breathtaking and welcoming, possessing mysterious depths. The same cannot be said for the film's stars, Paul Walker and Jessica Alba, who are every bit as gorgeous as the scenery but not quite so profound.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    There are far, far worse ways to spend two hours than watching Jessica Alba in a skimpy bikini - as well as other natural wonders photographed in the Bahamas - in the airheaded underwater adventure Into the Blue.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

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

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Mike Clark

    There will always be an audience for the escapist rewards this type of movie always dangles.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Marrit Ingman

    Its characterizations are as bland as sand.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    Walker is supposed to be lured by the buried treasure, but the actor, wearing Brad Pitt's bristle cut, is like Pitt with his sexy appetite sucked out.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • John Patterson

    Into the Blue is a likable bimbo of a movie, all surface and -- despite breathtaking underwater photography and a marked resemblance to Peter Yates' "The Deep" -- zero depth.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Matt Singer

    Granted, the cast has a certain rumpy charm, and setting four-fifths of the movie underwater keeps the pesky surfer-speak to a minimum, but the film is less about thrills than punishing the wicked.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    Accommodates some great water photography.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • William Arnold

    An undistinguished treasure-hunting epic that rips off the 1977 movie, "The Deep," in virtually every frame. It's pretty to look at, but so low-voltage and instantly forgettable that it's hardly worth anyone's time.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    When under water, the action-adventure Into the Blue has genuine thrills. Above water or on dry land, this is one dead fish.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Robert Wilonsky

    Into the Blue drowns before it even surfaces.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Kevin Crust

    This logic-challenged dive-bum thriller directed by John Stockwell, who did the equally silly surf movie "Blue Crush."

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    This undiluted nonsense is best suited to DVD-rental desperation. Still, aficionados of cheap cinematic thrills involving beautiful and stupid young people will be happy to learn that while the film fizzles far more than it sizzles, its director, John Stockwell, is a connoisseur of the female backside, which he displays to great and frequent advantage.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    Not a thriller so much as an extremely violent swimsuit calendar, the lushly lensed but dramatically waterlogged Into the Blue is too infatuated with its scantily clad stars to make sense of all the drug dealers, boat looters and bloodthirsty sharks trying to hunt them down.

    Variety Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    May look good cavorting prettily on deck, but ultimately it deserves to walk the plank.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    It has all the elements one would expect from a "so bad it's good" feature: cheesy dialogue, a script that could have been written by two chimpanzees, acting that would make a high school drama teacher cringe, and lots of tight female bodies poured into tiny bikinis. Despite all of that, however, I found Into the Blue to be a real trial.

  • Lawrence Toppman

    Not even the repeated sight of Jessica Alba in a bikini, the camera caressing her like the eyes of a strip-club patron, can lift this leaden refuse off the ocean floor.

    Laughably awful.
