Today I wanna post a full HD video with proper text for this sexy scene!
(click to enlarge)
And here is the video:
As you can see I made some cuts in the last part of the video. Well, I wanted to keep the length of the video to a certain size and besides that, she isn’t in these scenes that I cut out.
I recommend watching the whole movie if you like movies like Jaws. This one is pretty good and it has one GREAT feature for me: A fantastic score by grandmaster Ennio Morricone which really makes this movie stand out in comparison to others of this genre (+good actors).
Ok, back to this scene.
Her whole scuba gear is pretty close to perfection to me! This vintage wetsuit just looks awesome 🙂
Ok, I would prefer a vintage double hose regulator for her, but that classic single hose regulator is very nice as well.
From today’s point of view, it looks rather….odd, that she (who is a marine biologist) is hiding between the rocks as a shark approaches. But ok, a great white shark does look menacing, even he is not nearly as dangerous in reality as in the movies. But back in the old days nearly everyone thought that all sharks would be very dangerous, especially after Jaws.
However, it’s a thrilling scene to see her squeeze herself between these rocks.
It’s a fun scene later on as well, as the rough captain yells at the diver (he thought it was a man) and she then pulls back her hood to reveal her long hair.
Yeah, that sight of her in that wetsuit made him speechless for a moment.
Who could blame him? 😉
Charlotte Rampling did look pretty good back then. She was around 30 as the movie was shot, and that wetsuit is just very sexy.
In my version, she would hide from the shark as well but would damage her air hose as she would leave the rocks. Even that would be hard to do in a realistic fashion. Perhaps it got stuck there 😉
So, with the shark close by and her losing a lot of air…. you would have a little more thrill! 😉
(not my upload….. hopefully, it will stay on Youtube)
Isn’t that navy ship armed in any way? No small cannons, no AA guns, no machine guns, no nothing? Hard to believe… but they are only using their assault rifles to fire upon the bad guys.
Also, the navy guys and girls should be in a big advantage. They are on the big ship, can use cover there (what they are mostly not doing), are better equipped, and still have so many problems in fighting off some goons in their small boats?!?
What I don’t understand at all is….why are all these people just shacking their guns and pretending to fire upon each other???????
It looks like small kids would play with each other in kindergarten 😆
I mean, they used this ship, a helicopter, all these boats, had these rifles…… but then no money to buy some blanks???
This way the whole action looks ridiculous² …
This movie is mainly about a female squad of navy soldiers.
Back in 1990 as this movie was made, this was rather unusual.
So, is this movie perhaps feministic?
Well, quite the opposite in my opinion!
I mean most of them are portrayed rather incompetent (for example: the way they hold their rifles) and often are completely hysterical.
This is a rather horrible and sexist way to portray them. Well, Mexico in 1990…. I am not surprised. (wouldn’t be much different in most other countries at that time)
But enough of that, it works as an (unintentional) comedy for me…
The wetsuits are very nice, I wish there would be more and better footage of the frogwomen underwater.
What a missed chance….you have 2 navy frogwomen in sexy black wetsuits(!!!!) ….and then no enemy divers to fight against? DAMN!
Seems like the filming crew here didn’t know much about scuba diving 😉
Later on, as she is underwater the mistake got corrected.
The “good” woman is wearing a wetsuit and scuba socks under her coat they don’t bother in hiding it especially as she is out of the water again in the end. But I guess she was wearing that for the filming of that scene of the movie that they shot inside this movie…..quite confusing 😆
Underwater, there are two main problems for me.
The visibility is quite bad and I guess therefore the camera is very close to the two women, too close sometimes.
But I love the breathing sounds of the villainess and the fact that the other woman fights back, she isn’t totally passive like other women in other movies.
Several times she tries to steal the regulator of the villainess….. so great!
The villainess “only” needs to keep her underwater, even that would be pretty difficult in reality, as the other woman has no weights on her and is even wearing a wetsuit!
I think it would be hard to keep her from surfacing, but ok, only a small issue.
It’s also a little off that the guy does immediately find the two in a murky lake and that without a scuba mask. Yeah, there are bubbles from the regulator of the villainess, but I think it would be really difficult to find them quickly. Especially without a scuba mask.
It’s a shame that the detective was already in scuba gear and disturbs the villainess.
A shame that the villainess here wasn’t able to put up more of a fight. Quickly he yanks down her mask hard and thereby also removes her regulator. With one swift move, she is finished.
Seemingly he quickly yanks down her scuba hood as soon they hit the surface because her hood is already down as the camera shows her.
I love the way she looks as they drag her away in her gorgeous scuba outfit!
And the whole idea of having this villainess putting on that scuba gear to sneakily kill a woman in a film shooting is just brilliant and quite ….sexy….for me.
I mean it’s incredibly rare to have a frogwoman who tries to kill someone. Especially in such a sexy wetsuit!
This villainess here is one of my favorite villainesses of all time.
And even the scuba scene has quite some flaws, I will make an entry in the Hall of Fame, where you already can find a special “wetsuit cut” video of this scene!
Would have loved to see how she would have escaped from the lake in her wetsuit…
Certainly a really good scuba fight/peril scene even it has quite some flaws for me.
The scene where he attacks her is quite odd. He appears right in front of her and seemingly she didn’t see him before?!? I mean perhaps he was hiding but you see the bubbles of a diver, especially when he is in front of you.
Check out how she reacts to his attack, both her arms go for his right arm that is wielding the knife. Yeah, the knife is a big thread but his other arm is thereby completely free and he can rip off her mask without any struggle. Also, it seems like she is using only one of her arms after his initial attack….quite odd. Normally a diver should use both hands to attack or block the other diver’s hands so that you can control them. But ok, she certainly was surprised by him….
She is very, very, very passive in the whole scene. Yeah, he (seemingly) surprised her but she didn’t even try to rip away his mask or regulator, would have been great if she did!
What is bothering me here the most is her reaction after he ripped away her mask and regulator.
She doesn’t try to get her regulator back or is attacking him to get his regulator. She just tries to get to the surface….
But even if that would be successful, he would still be there and could attack her again with him being totally in advantage with his knife and scuba mask.
And is badly scripted how calmy she is trying to get away from him and to the surface. She almost looks bored in the video! 😆
She should be in a panic right now!
I mean he attacked her underwater!
She is about to drown!!!
But she looks like she is watching a documentary about the different shades of white paint 😉
But ok, enough of that. This one is one of the very few scenes where a female scuba diver gets attacked and drowned in a movie or TV show.
And despite its flaws, it’s quite thrilling and sexy as a (fictional) scene!
Maybe I’m imagining things but as the evil guy dives away there is a suspicious bulge on his wetsuit….. I guess the actor/stunt diver did enjoy the scene 😉
In case you don’t know the title/episode of the TV show:
A longer video with better picture quality and real text! Back in the day, I wrote only little to nothing in my blog post and that has certainly changed a lot of the years 😉

And here is the video:
Watch the video before you continue!
Ok, where to start? Well, I would prefer if her nose and mouth would be covered in the mask, don’t know if they had modified these masks, but I guess they wanted to show as much of her face as possible… Well, as I have a thing for masked women… I would have rather preferred the mysterious version 😉
I totally love her plan to have that bomb and the poison stuff to have something in her sleeve to blackmail everybody to let them go with their loot. And the fact that she is breathing oxygen from her tank and isn’t using a filter on her mask is a big bonus for me as well.
I guess this guy has the sharpest blade in history as you could never cut with such a thing through a thick rubber hose with just one move like he did. And why does he have such a blade with him in the first place?
I love this hissing sound of the escaping air after he sliced her hose and how she grabs it and realizes what this sneaky guy had done! A shocked “NO!” would have been nice there. I feel sorry for her that this guy ruined her plan like that.
And I’m also a little disappointed that she gives up immediately. I mean she could have ordered a henchman to give his tank and attached gas mask to her. And if he had refused she would have shot him. After all, she is the villainess. At least in my version, she would have done it. 😉
She would have had a working gas mask with an oxygen supply and he couldn’t surprise her again!
Just these two would then walk into a room for some reason, he would attack her and she would drop the poison stuff which would then be released into the air.
They would then battle frantically over the gas mask in order to survive. He would try to yank that mask off her, perhaps pinch her air hose to suffocate her so he could get the mask from her.
Or he would slice her air hose, and lock her inside that room…..
But well, this scene is very interesting and sexy for me as it is already!
In the next few days, I will make a special category in the Hall of Fame for gas masks/oxygen masks/astronauts.
