    Its a misleading title, it has nothing to do with diving :(

    Yeah I sort of gathered that watching the trailer for it last night. Still added it to my watch list, though. Even if it's not so much about diving, it looks like a good watch.

    Greg Kinnear just showed up 13 minutes into the film. This should be good.

    For those wondering, it appears that they are going to use a dive resort to smuggle people out of Ethiopia.

    I just realized that the lead is Chris Evans and they've also got Ben Kingsley.

    Indeed...Captain America is now 40 years into the past and is smuggling Ethiopians under the cover a dive hotel. The trailer did actually look really good but I was at the mercy of my 4 year old daughter and she decided we were going to watch Shazam instead.

    I've had the privilege to hear one of the people involved in this operation telling us the story from his angle.

    Several of my good friends of Ethiopian descent would not be here if it was not for those people smuggling their family from there.

    Cant wait to watch the movie as soon as i get home from work today!

    An hour three into the movie and we have our first diving scene. @JackOfDiamonds. I had no idea this was based on real events.

    Was named "Operation Brothers" , at the end they were able to smuggle over 7,000 people. Blew my mind when i first heard about it.

    Operation Brothers: The Mossad's Secret Scuba Operation in Sudan

    Can find many sources about it in Google should it interest you.
