This entertaining film combines all the action and excitement of a fastmoving yarn with shark-filled thrills in the tradition of Jaws. It stars Hollywood's Cornel Wilde (who also wrote and directed the movie) as the tough leader of a perilous four-man voyage into the Caribbean in search of a fortune in gold located in a lost Spanish treasure fleet. The expedition is beset by danger from the start. When the adventurers locate the wreckage, they find that the area is infested by man-eating sharks. Finally they succeed in getting rid of the sharks and start to bring up the treasure, only to be captured by five escaped convicts... Wilde's good screenplay and muscular direction ensures that the action and excitement never let up and he gives an excellent performance, as does Yaphet Kotto who plays an ex-navy diver and Cliff Osmond as the vicious cold-blooded leader of the convicts. Said The Hollywood Reporter 'This movie features some of the finest shark attack sequences ever filmed... This is a good film', the Daily Mirror noted that there was 'lots of action' and The Sunday Times commented that there was 'plenty of adventure' while the Daily Mail felt that Wilde has 'a keen eye for exciting action'.
