47 Meters Down (2017, D: Johannes Roberts) S: Mandy Moore, Claire Holt



<iframe width="656" height="369" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/nveTPCcbfeo" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

On the rebound after a devastating break-up, Lisa (Mandy Moore) is ready for adventure while on vacation in Mexico. Even still, she needs a little extra persuasion when her daring sister Kate (Claire Holt) suggests they go shark diving with some locals. Once underwater in a protective cage, Lisa and Kate catch a once in a lifetime, face-to-face look at majestic Great Whites. But when their worst fears are realized and the cage breaks away from their boat, they find themselves plummeting to the bottom of the seabed, too deep to radio for help without making themselves vulnerable to the savage sharks, their oxygen supplies rapidly dwindling. 47 METERS DOWN is a terrifying tale of survival set in the domain of the ocean's fiercest creatures.

47 METERS DOWN will splash into theaters June 16th, 2017.

I don't get the premise. Is the person topside a complete moron and unaware the giant cage attached to the boat broke free? Is there no one topside and the two girls lowered themselves down?

The whole idea just doesn't make sense.

"Mandy Moore is famous again, let's bank!"

Also at 47 meters down, a full tank of a non-nitrox mix would only last at most 10 minutes.

Saw this last year and with a back to back with the shallows freaked me out. Took me a month before I would go back into the ocean again.

Anyone see this? I’m watching now. Nothing real special...

Edit...IMDb says this made almost $700 million WW. No possible way, right?

It's made about $50m worldwide

Yeah, that’s more like it, especially on its budget and these smaller movies don’t even get overseas releases sometimes. Never saw an edit that bad on there...

47 Meters Down
(2017) — No real surprises in this, a couple tense moments I guess though
Spoiler:
the "twist", for the lack of a better word, in the finale was rather predictable.
Not bad, not great but respectable considering its $5.5M budget and the fact it was destined for DTV land last year.

2.75/5

Wasn't bad for a free rental, but I'm glad I didn't buy it.

For a pretty low budget movie it wasn't too bad. I like Mandy Moore and now she's made a big name for herself on This is Us. And Claire Holt isn't bad either. I heard this was shot like 4 years ago.

It had some suspenseful moments with the sharks. The big "twist" was interesting....I kind of thought that the rescue sequence was happening too easily and something else was up.

This is definitely a 1-time only watch. If you can rent it digitally or on DVD cheap, then it's a good way to kill 90 minutes. No need to own this.

Spoiler:
I knew it was a hallucination based on what the captain told Holt, though Moore didn't know it since she didn't hear that conversation and Holt didn't have time to tell her before she was killed by the shark. Once Moore connected that second tank, I knew none of that was real.

Terrible, terrible movie. The "twist" ending was alluded to 40 minutes before the end. I wish I had my hour and a half back.

Also, Mandy Moore screaming is the source of my nightmares. Ugh.

Spoiler:
Wait...one of the main characters dies at the end (or both)? If true, I actually appreciate the spoiler because it saved me 90 minutes I can use for something else when it hits cable/Netflix.


It sounds like this was no The Shallows, which I found to be a pleasant surprise when I saw it on Netflix.

^ Wait, why would that make you less likely to watch?

Spoiler:
I kind of wonder if the ending was fixed to give it some tiny bit of optimism. I have a feeling, -and that's all it is, -that the film ended with the hallucination reveal and that Moore was screwed. I think her being saved was a late addition, or alternate ending that they decided to go with. Just something I wondered...
