Wow! Army Of Divers is super impressive, particularly since it's made by a high school junior. It has an amazing plot and great acting. It definitely keeps the viewer engaged for most of the film.

The story takes place in 1944 and is about three young men who are hired to recover a treasure in exchange for part of the treasure. Everything goes great until the plot twist at the end.

This student made film has a very creative and well thought-out story and is well produced. It's a period piece, taking place in the mid-40s. I love the attention to detail, such as the set for the opening shop which is at a vintage lunch counter, with a vintage telephone. The visuals during the opening credits are terrific. The camera work is pretty good, although some shots are a bit shaky and the lighting is sometimes a problem, especially during some interior shots. Also, the audio is a bit inconsistent. The reconstruction of the ship's sinking is impressive, so is the scene with the three guys parachuting out of the plane. The shots of the guys in the water are excellent, with the voice over obviously more clear than it would actually be if they were recording it under water. My favorite part the underwater scenes when they are hunting for the treasure there are some excellent shots.

The message is that sometimes things are not as they seem. You should know that there is some profanity.

I give Army of Divers 3.5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 13 to 18. By Avalon N. and Julie S., KIDS FIRST!

In this fun action-heist film set during the height of WWII, a seasoned army general (Brandon DeSpain) recruits an ex-Navy SCUBA diver (Michael-Eoin Stanney), a boat captain (Griffin Glick), and an expert safecracker (Hunter Kohl) to locate and retrieve a safe worth 10 million dollars. The only hitch is that the safe is buried hundreds of feet underwater and the clock is ticking. With nothing but their wits and a little bit of help from the U.S. government, they will attempt to brave the uncharted waters and recover the safe, hopefully surviving this treacherous journey.
