It’s usually hit films that earn the pleasure of direct to video sequels, but sometimes a movie that failed at the box-office proves too tempting a marketing opportunity to pass by. Such is the case with 2005’s Into the Blue and its 2009 DTV sequel, Into the Blue 2: The Reef.

These DTV follow-ups typically take a while to show up on virtual shelves, but the four-year span between films here is a relatively quick turnaround. You might assume that’s because the folks at MGM knew they had a hot property, but as mentioned, the original sank fairly quickly in theaters. So maybe they had a fantastic script that simply had to get made sooner rather than later? Don’t be so naive.

Jared - Paul - Walker - Sam - Jessica

Jared (Paul Walker) and Sam (Jessica Alba) are pretty people living in an even prettier place, but while the Bahamas offer endless beauty the opportunities for financial success are harder to come by. The couple’s dream of discovering a sunken treasure has been on the back-burner for years, but that changes when a dive with friends reveals the possibility of a long lost ship and the actuality of a crashed plane filled with cocaine bricks. The pull of easy money and danger soon takes hold leaving the young couple fighting for their lives and future.

Sebastian and Dani are young, in love, and working dead-end tourism jobs in Hawaii that aren’t bringing them any closer to their dream of discovering a wreck, salvaging its treasures, and sailing off into the sunset. Their luck appears to change, though, when a wealthy couple hires them to help search for a legendary sunken ship rumored to be off the island’s coast. Carlton and Azra are rich but friendly, and soon the foursome actually discovers hints of a sunken treasure.
