It's creature effects were designed by Academy Award-winning special effects artist Stan Winston.

UNDERWATER:

WILLIE'S POV The inside of her helmet is a grid of LED

gauges monitoring air reserve, body temperature,

atmospheres, heart rate, blood pressure.

She stops next to a pair of railroad-like tracks and removes

the tool attached to the end of her arm. The move is

practiced and professional, like a cook changing the tool on

a set of egg beaters. First, she inserts the existing tool

into a lock on her opposite arm which holds it while she

disengages the tool. Next, she selects the next tool from

the storage compartment at her waist and punches it into

position. Sixpack's voice comes over the radio.

SIXPACK'S VOICE

Hey, Willie, you trip on a

tit or something? We're all

waiting on you, honey.

WILLIE:

(under control)

Keep your pants on Sixpack.

I promise you'll be inside before

"Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood" comes on.

OVER THE RADIO WE HEAR other men's voices laughing. They

like Willie and cheer her on. "Tell him, Willie," "Atta

girl," etc...

Willie CLICKS in her last tool and turns. Expertly she

hooks a large dumpster-like container, the container to what

looks like an underwater parachute--A CONTAINER

TRANSPORTER--which when filled with oxygen it lifts the

massive container onto the tracks where it can be hauled-in

by a winch.
