Now to one of my favorite scenes! Female scuba divers in full-face masks are pretty rare in movies, especially regarding scenes where there is any real ACTION underwater.
Here we have actually a scuba fight scene with a female diver wearing an FFM!
Ready for action!
Let’s cut this one!

And here is the action, ENJOY!
*EDIT* March 9, 2022:
Time for a proper text as this is a scene from my Hall of Fame!
I really love these Interspiro full-face masks (FFM)! And seeing one in an action scene in a movie/TV show, especially in a scuba fight….is VERY RARE!
The villainess messes up to sneakily attack her from behind and the diver is able to fight her off for some seconds with the help of Flipper.
I love the struggle she puts up to prevent the villainess from cutting her precious air hose incl. great sounds!
She tries to escape (doesn’t she have a knife to fight back?) and the villainess pins her down on top of the submarine, really well done.
I love that the villainess then goes for her air hose and slices through it.
Sadly she turns away then as the good guy comes for the rescue.
Two mistakes are here: Her air hose loses only very little air for some time after it was cut. I guess they turned the air off more or less for a segment.
Also, as the good guy arrives and gives her his spare regulator her mask is only pressed against her face, the straps aren’t in place anymore. I guess they skipped the part so she could quickly get the regulator to breathe again.
The “aftermath” as she pumps the water out of the chamber in the sub and is pretty much shocked and out of breath is well done as well.
Well, in my version the villainess would then be attacked by the hero and …underwater…of course 😉
So he could give her a taste of her own medicine!
