Scuba and wetsuit scenes from โ€œDer Hai von Mallorcaโ€ [SOS Barracuda movie series]

So, the 2nd movie of the SOS Barracuda series was aired yesterday.

From the description and pictures, there were surely male scuba scenes in it.

But luckily, there is a female scuba scene in it as well in the very beginning of the flick!

Also longer and much more interesting than the tiny scuba scene in the first one:

The scuba scenes were oddly edited together with some scenes at the airport, so I edited that stuff out of the video as it was most annoying during the scuba scene.

And here is the video:

This was the only female scuba scene in the movie.

Ok, as much as I love to see some frogwomen in peril, there is SO much going wrong in this scene!

  • Ok, it can happen that you dive against some rocks as she does but the way she does it, it shouldn’t damage the valve(?) like that from the angle she hits the rocks.
  • Also, there are bubbles coming from nearly every direction :lol:. How is that supposed to happen? Ok, the valve is (seemingly) broken but it looks like she is leaking air in quite a lot of different places! Most bizarre!
  • Ok, let’s say this happens to you as a diver. You could continue to breathe as long as the tank isn’t empty and ascend slowly. If you are then out of air you could make an emergency ascend. Or better, just wait for your buddy to reach you in the first place. That situation shouldn’t be dangerous at all with the buddy close by. But what does she do? She doesn’t use any of her 2 regulators, she doesn’t ascend, she doesn’t swim towards her buddy. She seemingly spits out her regulator and then calmly is waiting to drown!?! Surely she is surprised of how quickly she loses her air reserves, but her reaction doesn’t make any sense at all.
  • This is SO odd, who thinks of such a scene? Pretty sure no one involved with the script had any knowledge of scuba diving. Or the writer was just going to create a dangerous situation for he could be able to rescue her, which is later in the movie an important plot point…..no matter how crazy it is.

However, as much there is to criticize, I do like the scene. Certainly a nice, odd addition to the collection.

And in general, it’s never wrong to have a scene where oxygen is escaping like that. The audio alone is…… ๐Ÿ˜‰

Odd little detail:

They are using scuba gear from Mares. Whenever the whole lettering is visible it gets blurred, so you can’t really see it very well.

Although you know in any case that “Mares” is lettered there.

Especially in other scenes, it’s most obvious that they tried to hide the fact that this is Mares equipment (very unsuccessful though! ๐Ÿ˜† )

Why did they do that?

My only explanation is that Mares was perhaps ashamed of being involved in this movie?

Perhaps they thought it would be bad publicity…..

 

In another 2 weeks, the next movie is shown and then I can make a longer cut with improved picture quality of this one:

Caves, frogwomen and “ghost” sharks [Blog exclusive]

These scenes are from a very new movie, I tried to upload the short clips (under 4 minutes) on Youtube, but they were blocked right away (like in the past with the prequel to this movie).

So, these videos will only be on this Blog on not on my Youtube channel.

In this movies we got 4 very young women that wanna explore an ancient underwater cave system.

And SURPRISE….that wasn’t a really good idea ๐Ÿ˜‰

They have to fight monstrous “ghost” sharks and their dwindling air reserves!

Well, you didn’t expect that ending! ๐Ÿ˜‰

For that reasson I avoided any hints of drowning in the text and pictures above.

This one is a pretty great one for the drowning-peril fans out there.

I wanted to watch this movie for a while and I was spoilered that she would drown in that scene….unfortunately.

Never expected to see a shark to “drown” a female diver. Yes, of course that wasn’t his intention, but by biting into her scuba gear, he forced her to give it up.

And without it -deep down in that cave system- she hadn’t had a chance without any help in range.

She drowns pretty quick, but in her state of panic, with the shark on her tail….no surprise.

The movie offers a lot of underwater scenes as they are underwater for at least 75% of the movie!

I generally like full face scuba masks, but these aren’t my taste. They show “everything” (what the producers clearly wanted)  and look very “unstylish”.

The scuba gear is incomplete with these “shorty” wetsuits and the missing fins. For me, more would be …..more here ๐Ÿ˜‰

The “we run out of oxygen soon” is a topic for parts of the movie, but unlike in the first movie, it wasn’t handled very well in this one in my opinion.

However I strongly recommend that you watch the whole movie, if you like to see these 4 frogwomen in underwater peril for a looooong time!

 

Here is the title of the movie:

The frogwoman ….and the sneaky, evil dive buddy

It’s time for another great scuba peril scene!

A scene, that I didn’t understood fully until I saw the whole episode, thanks to a very nice guy.

A little knowledge is needed to know exactly what is going on.

The story before the scene (if you know a certain episode from the Sea Hunt TV show, you should remember that storyline ๐Ÿ˜‰ :

Due to an accident a woman can’t really use her legs anymore. A private diving teacher is hired by her husband.

The leg movement in the water should help her to slowly regain control over her legs.

One day the husband takes her to a dive, even she isn’ t really ready yet.

But he is looking after her…and dives deeper and deeper with her….

And here is the video:

Wow, what a bastard!

Tries to drown his own wife, who isn’t able (due to her condition) to fight back…

But luckily …his evil plans gets foiled.

And I’m pretty sure the actor (or stunt diver) is….looking forward to the drowning scene. If you check at around 0:24….he seems…well…. “excited”. ๐Ÿ˜†

The scuba fight scene isn’t bad either, could have been longer, but it’s a nice addition to the “scuba peril” scene before.

She isn’t shown in scuba gear on the surface just before or after this dive.

Wanna know from which TV show this is?

IMDB-link

The episode has “Murder” in the title. I guess …it may be labeled “Murder at 60 feet” like the original episode from the original Sea Hunt show.

What do you think of this scene?
