DEEP GOLD (review)

Filmed on location in the Phillipines, Deep Gold is reminiscent to the Zalman King/Andy Sidaris productions that feature attractive actors, stunning cinematography and lush locations.

Freediving champion Amy Sanchez and her sister Jesse team up to discover the whereabouts of Amy's boyfriend, Tony dela Cruz, an Air Force pilot who had vanished with his plane with several million dollars of gold aboard. As the sisters investigate Tony's disappearance further, they uncover details that places them both in the center of an intricate conspiracy.

Co-writer/director Gleissner has crafted a fresh take on a classic style of adventure film; the characters are not cartoons and the action sequences are well executed. Underwater sequences are also visually impressive and lead actress Bebe Pham (a Vietnamese top model) is stunning.

Deep Gold is a throwback to the fondly remembered late night cable movies that ran throughout the Eighties, and a reminder of what the major studios tend to forget; that movies are meant to be escapist entertainment.

For last night's Red Carpet Premiere of Deep Gold in 3D it was lights, camera, action and more action. Cast members Jaymee Ong, Amelia Jackson-Gray, and Laury Prudent joined writer-director Michael Gleissner at the Bigfoot Crest Theater in Westwood.

Special guest celebrities like Tiffany Hines, who kicks butt and takes names on her hit CW show, Nikita, Lennie James from the crime thriller Snatch, and Ernie Hudson, who talked about the possibility of a Ghostbusters III coming to life in the near future, came for the action. Courtney Davies from America's Next Top Model: Cycle 13 showed us how to pose on the red carpet, Ken Davitian (Borat) was a riot, and red carpet favorite Cedric Sanders (Things Fall Apart), as always, made a killer fashion statement.

Red Carpet stunners included Grace Johnston (Once More with Feeling), Laura Waddell (Will & Kate), Ashley Avis (Miami Vice), Mercedes Brito (The Casting Office), Jennifer Blanc (The Divide), Sara Maraffino (The Attic), Frida Farrell (Behind Your Eyes), Sarah Lassez (The Dead Issue), actress Catherine Thuy Ai (Miss Hong Kong), Cerina Da Graca, Sheree Wilson (Walker, Texas Ranger), Beverly Leech (Surf School), and model Ann Lauren.
