Movie Reviews

Finally its here.....A True Masterpiece!!
Alexander Buttigieg | Malta | 07/01/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In 1969 Peter Gimbel set off on the First ever Expedition to Film The Great White Shark. His Team included other World famous underwater Photographers: Stan Waterman, Ron & Valerie Taylor, and also Shark Attack Survivor Rodney Fox.

Their search for the Great White lasted for 9 months and it took them from South Africa to South Australia. The tension, the drama, the setbacks... of a long journey, plus the first ever awesome underwater photography make this documentary an all time classic and a living tribute both to the team and the sharks.

A lot of the footage that was Filmed had never been seen before. Some highlights like the dives with the feeding Oceanic Whitetips, and the final encounter with the Great White Shark are simply awesome.

Peter Gimbel and his team were the first to introduce me to SHARKS with this Documentary when I first saw it in 1971 and Since then, my life has never been the same again.

A True Masterpiece!!"
Absolutely superb!!

"I'd been waiting to see BWWD since 1971. Tried to get a VHS copy but failed. Now the DVD is out and a copy appeared in my mailbox, having pre-ordered several months ago. The movie itself is every bit as exciting as I remembered it. My wife, who is a also a diehard scuba diver and hadn't seen it before, agreed it's top notch. The real bonus is the high quality of the digital transfer. Every bit as clear as the original, with stunning colors and lighting to match. What a pleasure to watch. There is also a bonus feature on a get-together with some of the divers, including the Taylors and Stan Waterman."
At last...!

"I first have seen this movie when I was a teenager. And never since this time. I watch out for the DVD and now here it is ! Don't miss this movie. This is not JAWS but a very impressive shark movie one of the very real first ! It is an historical account not only about the history of scubadiving Captain Cousteau or Hans Hass began years ago (as reported in HDS last issue) but also about the way we considered Mother Nature in the 70's."
