This film was to me more like a good piece of theater than a typical Hollywood film. If you are expecting extraordinary gigantic shark attacks this is not the movie you are looking for. Open Water is a film aimed at a realistic account of a couple left out in the ocean and the emotions, struggles, and challenges brought about by that situation. Open Water is more of a drama than a horror film. Some may find it boring because of its lack of detailed dialogue and action. It is like a Hemmingway short story. A good 80 - 90 % of the story lies between the lines and if you don't pay attention you will miss it, and be bored with the 10% you saw.
