Jessica Alba looking good in Blu-Ray!
Hitman777 | 12/14/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Story Synopsis:
If you are a clothing minimalist, Into The Blue is for you. With the azure skies and crystal waters of the Bahamas their backyard, Jared (Walker) and his girlfriend, Sam (Alba), enjoy a peaceful existence...and incredible tans. But, with the arrival of Sam's childhood friend, Bryce (Caan), and his girlfriend Amanda (Scott), and the subsequent discovering of a possible sunken treasure, greed rears its head jeopardizing not only their friendship, but their very lives.

Disc Picture:
The 2.32:1 MPEG-2 Blu-ray Disc picture looks great, overall. There is a purposely oversaturated look to the picture, with blown-out whites and colors.The underwater color schemes seem to really look good as well. The picture quality is outstanding, with beautiful locales, which is improved of course by the presence of Jessica Alba.

The linear PCM 5.1-channel soundtrack uses a broad front stage, good surround integration, and well-recorded dialogue to deliver an enjoyable audio experience. Deep bass is not very prevalent, making the soundtrack sound a bit thin."
Jessica Alba...bikini... swim....

"I have no idea if this movie is any good. I watched the whole thing and all I can tell you is that Jessica Alba is in a bikini a good part of the time and swimming. If they would have made a movie with 99% of it her swimming under water in that bikini, which the bottoms seemed about 2 sizes too small) I would rave about it too.

Alba... bikini... wet... swim..."

"As I sat down to watch "Into the Blue", I knew exactly what I was in for. There would surely be lots of ocean, lots of beautiful underwater scenery, some gorgeous fish, and a semi-coherent plot-line. Additionally, I knew that it was a safe bet to expect plenty of the incredibly beautiful Jessica Alba in a bikini - for the guys, and a considerable amount of camera time for a shirtless Paul Walker - for the ladies. What I didn't expect, what nobody could have possibly expected, however, was COKE ADDICTED SHARKS! Allow me explain.

The premise of the movie starts off simply enough. Walker is a down on his luck diver, underwater scuba instructor with a penchant for disobedience. Basically it's "Fast and the Furious" if swimming replaces the driving. His girlfriend, Alba, is an instructor at what looks like a SeaWorld rip-off, and inexplicably is with the guy who has no money or possessions. So, right off the bat, all viewers can easily place this movie into the fiction category. They are "in love" despite their meager incomes and the fact that they are scraping by in the world. Walker, however, has dreams of striking it rich by finding treasure in the ocean, despite the fact that he's a borderline homeless guy that still gets to sleep with Jessica Alba. The plot thickens...

Upon eventually finding his buried treasure, a ship called the Zephyr, he and a few friends also happen upon a crashed/sunken airplane filled with tons of cocaine. They debate about using the drugs to fund their treasure finding expeditions, something they can't do presently because of their impoverished state. After mulling it over time and again, arguing and pondering the ramifications of illegal drug trafficking, they inevitably get involved. And this, my friends, is where it gets good.

There are numerous diving scenes where Alba and Walker, although it's hard to notice Walker with Alba swimming around, go down for the treasure and drugs. Unfortunately for the divers, but incredibly fortunate for the viewers, some of the cocaine packing gets a little loose. Sure enough, it's turned the entire ocean into a big swimming cokehead convention. Sharks have bloodshot eyes; fish are fidgeting as they swim by, and the manta rays are pimping themselves for some unknown reason.

What follows is a combination of "Jaws", "Cool Runnings", every episode of the original "Star Trek", and a smidge Scooby Doo antics. Sharks eat people; Jamaicans are rampant; the sole, inconsequential character from the Alba and Walker crew dies, and there is a ridiculously convoluted and complicated trap set up to catch the bad guys. Bad guys lose/die; good guys win.

The movie in and of itself is worthwhile. I don't feel like I wasted my money. What needs to be made clear, however, is that this movie took the next step. They breached a horizon that has never been previously approached. The touched upon a concept with unfathomable possibilities: COCAINE ADDICTED SHARKS! Think about the possibilities; really, think about it. Tell me you can't think of another 10 movies with animals addicted to drugs as the major factor in any one of the rising action, climax, falling action, or denouement.

What a great friggin' idea."
