47 Meters Down (2017)
Critic Consensus: 47 Meters Down doesn't take its terrifying premise quite as far as it should, but its toothy antagonists still offer a few thrills for less demanding genre enthusiasts.

Critic Reviews for 47 Meters Down
But on its own B-movie terms 47 Meters Down works just fine, not wearing out its welcome thanks to its quick set-up, rapid pacing and brief running time.
It's not a great film but, once the preliminary scenes on terra firma are over and we descend to a place we don't belong, it delivers an hour or so of sustained physical and psychological terror.
British director Johannes Roberts makes decent use of the murk (the film was largely shot in a tank in London) and the sisterhood theme gives the film a broader appeal than, say, The Shallows.
A movie to be laughed at, not with, but there's pure popcorn pleasure to be found in its unapologetic schlock.
After the success last year of The Shallows, here's another schlocky but brazenly entertaining thriller pitting American woman against homicidal shark in Mexico.
Audience Reviews for 47 Meters Down
Incredibly intense, 47 Meters Down is a frightening thriller that gives Jaws a run for its money. While on vacation in Mexico two sisters go on a dive in a shark cage, but when an accident causes the cage to break free from its moorings the girls end up trapped at the bottom of the ocean with limited air and surrounded by sharks. Mandy Moore and Claire Holt both give strong performances; especially given that they're underwater and in full diving gear for most of the film. Also, the script does a pretty good job at having the girls work through their problems and attempt to find rescue. And the shark attacks (though not very realistic) are terrifying, and are made more so by a remarkably powerful score that heightens the tension and suspense. 47 Meters Down is a fresh and exciting horror film that delivers some bone-chilling scares.
A snorefest of a shark movie. Not nearly enough shark or blood!
I spend an inordinate amount of time watching shark movies. They're almost never good, and they're almost never well made. 47 Metres Down on the other hand is well made. It's still not good though.
