Two sisters are exploring the deep blue sea until something goes wrong. As they submerge 47m they encounter a creature that only wants flesh and blood. As they fight their way back to the top, they shortly run out of oxygen. With only an hour left they’re not only racing against time they are racing against life and death.47 Meters Down is a highly claustrophobic shark movie starring Mandy Moore and Matthew Modine but it’s flaws are quite unique.Telling the story of two girls who go into a shark cage in Mexico to see the great whites but fall into peril when the chain snaps and they’re plunged into darkness.
Let me say that visually the movie is incredible and is one of the most claustrophobic heart pounding films I’ve seen in years. You feel for these ladies, the movie gets across the panic, severity and time restrictions very well and it taps into something which makes me personally feel very uncomfortable.
