Storyline

After an over-cocky inter-forces 'anti-terrorism' game in which he damaged the minister's car, Belgian Army special ops diver Rick Symons is transferred to the Navy. Alas, in Koksijde base's rescue unit, rivalry among both Seaking helicopter crews is as dangerously blind. Rick has a stormy hate-love-relationship with female medic Alex Breynaert. And his past, an incident which left veteran Koen crippled for life, sort of catches up. Koen's crazy scheme has dire consequences, breaking Rick's will to go on. But he changes his mind during a ship fire emergency and takes extreme risks. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

With a budget close to 4,500,000 Euro the most expensive dutch-spoken Belgian feature to date. Because this compared to American or British films still is low budget, the production agreed with the Pinewood Studio's and the SFX teams to pay them a lower fee then usual. See more »

Goofs

In the beginning of the movie, when "Rick" is in the Army, he is a 1st sergeant (4 stripes). From the moment he arrives in Koksijde, he is an Airforce sergeant (3 stripes). (However, due to his exercise foul up, it's possible he may have been demoted as part of his transfer to the Air Component.) See more »

a story about a diver and a medic, and how they will/will not come together.
23 May 2007 | by elkesnoeksSee all my reviews

I enjoyed the film very very much. It took me 5 minutes to hook up with Rik Symons, and he got me through the whole story. I like the combination of strong characters, and the very good action scenes. Very well done, for such a small budget. It really looks very real. As we say in French: 'Chapeau!'. The actors' performances are very convincing. I already saw 'The Alzheimer Case' with Koen De Bouw, and in this film he is very good again. I like Kevin Jansens, and the combination of very subtle scenes and the big action scenes he's in. I heard they shot a part of the film in the underwater studios at Pinewood in England. It is impossible to see what is shot in studio, and what is shot outside. Again, that is really well done.
