47 Metres Down

Two sisters (Mandy Moore and Claire Holt from The Vampire Diaries) vacationing in Mexico are the victims of a shark cage diving trip gone wrong.

A technical fault leaves Lisa and Kate's shark viewing cage stranded on the ocean floor. With oxygen running low and great whites circling nearby, they have less than an hour of air left to figure out how to get to the surface.

Even the conclusion, which by its very construction should be purely thrilling, is needlessly complicated and confounded by a callback to a warning given to Lisa and Kate early in the film.

Johannes Roberts’ effective thriller doubles down on its recent predecessor by placing not one but two attractive women in aquatic jeopardy.

It’s tense, edge-of-your-seat stuff… for a while.

A fiendishly effective holiday-gone-wrong thriller that's better at cranking up the agoraphobic action than fleshing out its characters.

A shark movie without sharks? That's what I was thinking for much of this all new deep sea thriller. Whilst sharks are a key part of the plot (two young woman wind up at the bottom of the ocean after their shark observation cage sinks) they really aren't featured often. They do provide somewhat frequent jump scares but other than that they're really in the...
