There is one word for “47 Meters Down”. The word is “Don’t”.
It’s summer time and with it comes the obvious need for a shark movie. “Jaws” set the bar for shark movies and every one that has come after it has been trying to catch up.
Two sisters on vacation in Mexico are offered a chance to see ocean life up close in a shark cage that is lowered into the ocean from what looks like a tug boat. It’s only supposed to be for 10 minutes, but the gear holding the cable malfunctions and the cage falls to the ocean floor 47 meters down. There is constant communication from the boat to the girls. They are told to stay in the cage until help arrives, but their oxygen soon runs low. The story unfolds from there…
The movie is tightly suspenseful and at times nerve-racking. “47 Meters Down” is truly a “B” grade movie with a few “biting” thrills. If you can stand the tense by all means enjoy yourself, otherwise “Don’t waste your money” and “Don’t waste your time”.
This is a 2 Star Movie!
