For those of you that do end up surrounded by sharks for whatever reason, take great notice of what these characters do so you can do the exact opposite

It's not the smartest terror film under water, but it serves to kill time if you do not take it too seriously. [Full Review in Spanish]

47 Meters Down: A Shark-Thrilling Tale of Survival
November 20, 2017
... there are many other countless cliches. [Full review in Spanish]

... a cheap attempt with disastrous results... [Full review in Spanish]
November 16, 2017
That is Roberts' biggest problem because in spite of managing to keep the obviously slight narrative ticking over such that it never gets excruciatingly dull, we never really get to care either - and thus the killer twist at the end is totally wasted.

The sharks, who intimidate more when their presence is sensed than when they actually appear on the scene, are just an excuse to justify the impossibility of the protagonists to escape from that hell. [Full review in Spanish]

Shark wise the film is well done. The computer sharks move smoothly and there is no "super-shark" that shows up like in last summer's disappointing "The Shallows."
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
October 23, 2017
Once it gets past the ho-hum introduction, 47 Metres Down becomes a tense thriller that makes the most of its claustrophobic setting.

... has a terrible cheat ending that ruins whatever mojo it manages to work up.

(Roberts) does a first-class job of exploiting that near-universal fear of "what lies beneath". If you don't have it already, you will after this.

To put it bluntly, this movie celebrates sheer stupidity.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 6, 2017
British director Johannes Roberts, with good work from cinematographer Mark Silk, allows the undersea action to unfold like a procedural, so that the details ratchet up the tension.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
September 1, 2017
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.

On paper, the elements for suspense - sharks, rapidly depleting oxygen, a cage, risk of the bends - are all there, but on screen they add up to a whole lot of visual blah.

By the standards of cheap shark thrillers, the film is perfectly serviceable, but it's certainly no more than that.

August 23, 2017
Though the heroines make some terribly dumb moves in their bid to survive the ordeal, the script's clever reminders about deep-sea dos and don'ts will keep viewers invested in ascertaining the final outcome.

It's tense, edge-of-your-seat stuff... for a while.
Full Review | Original Score: 10.50/20
August 16, 2017
British director Johannes Roberts handles the escape-room mechanics with competence, but without much flair.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
August 15, 2017
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.
