47 Meters Down (15)

Adventure, Drama, Horror

Two sisters vacationing in Mexico are trapped in a shark cage at the bottom of the ocean. With less than an hour of oxygen left and great white sharks circling nearby, they must fight to survive.

The critical consensus

Mandy Moore is a determined presence in this silly shark thriller from director Johannes Roberts.

***(*)(*)Katherine McLaughlin, The List, 24/07/2017

The material here could have made for a tasty enough short film. At feature length, it is strung out far longer than it should have been. The shock tactics lose their impact and the film soon drifts off into near meaninglessness.

**(*)(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 26/07/2017

This film labours unpretentiously in the shadow of Spielberg’s Jaws, before it is almost harpooned by an outrageous final twist.

**(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 26/07/2017

A fiendishly effective holiday-gone-wrong thriller that's better at cranking up the agoraphobic action than fleshing out its characters. Still, it'll find few fans at the Mexican Tourist Board...

***(*)(*)Dan Jolin, Empire Online, 26/07/2017

A silly but intensely terrifying addition to the wave of shark thrillers out there.

***(*)(*)Josh Howey, Little White Lies, 27/07/2017

An ill-advised twist in the tale leaves you feeling foolish for ever taking it seriously.

**(*)(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 28/07/2017

A woman goes diving with sharks to impress her ex in this trashy but pleasurable B-movie.
