’47 Meters Down’ Movie Review: Not a Great Movie, Just Okay To While Away Time

So, I thought I should watch the movie, 47 Meters Down to fritter away time and the movie turned as expected to be a time fritter. The movie took idea from the epic, thriller movie Deep Blue Sea, and has noting spectacular, just sharks hunting intruders in the depth of the sea. 47 Meters Down centers on two young sisters Kate and Lisa, who traveled to Mexico for a vacation filled with sun, fun and adventure. Soon both met two guys who introduced them to a death scuba diving fun in shark-infested waters in a protective cage. Kate suggested and forced Lisa that they go scuba diving. Their worst fears soon become a reality when the cage breaks away from their boat, sending them plummeting to the ocean floor with a dwindling supply of oxygen.

Like I mentioned initially, 47 Meters Down isn’t a super-interesting movie, just on the average. One thing I personally liked about the movie is the cinematography: the way the sea was captured was beautiful, it will make you see how huge the sea is and the beautiful blue-green colour caused by the plankton in the water. I like the fact that Kate was eaten by a shark in the depth of the sea when their cage broke because, Lisa warned they shouldn’t go for the diving and she forcefully made Lisa do it. So, she go what she want, and I’m glad Lisa made it out alive after facing death. Also, it’s nice that one of the guys who introduced them to the death game was eaten by shark when he was sent to go give the sisters oxygen kits at the depth of the sea.

Generally, 47 Meters Down movie is just more of scary scenes of sharks hunting, and no any side story, which made the movie devoid of concept, and just a time fritter. If you have no movie to watch and idle, you can watch the movie (maybe you’d enjoy it, but I doubt it).

Score: 5/10

  1. Hey, nice review! I enjoyed this more than you, though. While it’s a fairly standard genre flick, I thought the director did a fantastic job of using the dark of the sea to create sustained levels of threat and suspense. I felt stressed for most of the film, so mission accomplished. Good dual ending too.
