47 Meters Down: Uncaged

Nerve-wracking yet totally superficial. - 5.5/10

Four teenage divers discover that the sunken ruins of a Mayan city are also a hunting ground for deadly great white sharks. With their air supply steadily dwindling, the frightened girls must navigate the underwater labyrinth of claustrophobic caves and eerie tunnels in search of a way out of their watery hell.

As someone with serious fears of the ocean, i had a hard time watching this film. So you tell me, what do you expect from a movie that simply doesn't provide anything expect a few cheap thrills and jump scares every now and then.

Before I explain why I gave it a score of only a 5.5, two questions must be asked. 1- is this film Enjoyable? YES, ABSOLUTELY, without any doubt.

2-is it flawless? HELL NO.

This film is enjoyable because it has a really suspenseful atmosphere that will literally keep you on the edge of your seats for its entire runtime. But this alone was not enough to make it as successful as its predecessor.

For starters, the graphics and CGI were, to say the least, unconvincing. Secondly, the story was superficial and lacks all kinds of depths and development, in addition to being extremely rushed. Thirdly, the acting, well for the first two acts, the acting was a bit cringy and forced-like but as the third act came around, it shifted and both leads Sophie Nelisse and Corine Foxx delivered good acts.

But, despite these flaws and as I mentioned earlier, having a really intense atmosphere and a non-fluctuating pace really helped in making this film enjoyable.

Strangely enough, I recommend it!
