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.
This low budget but highly-effective horror film is exactly the kind of movie that legendary Hollywood D-movie producer Roger Corman would have knocked out in the '70s: plenty of writhing female limbs, no surprises.
Even at 89 minutes, you can feel the oxygen running out of this movie.
It's gratifying to see a summer popcorn movie where a simple idea goes a long way.
It's taut and suspenseful, and there's a jittery vibe to the whole thing.
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.
