When a mis-count happens on the boat, Susan and Daniel are left behind in the middle of the ocean, the boat long gone. With all their hopes set on the boat coming back to rescue them, they try to keep themselves safe, especially when sharks start to appear. Written by

Hey Don. It's Daniel. Listen, don't put the boiler in until I get back. The framing inspection isn't for a couple of weeks, so we've got plenty of time. And I'll check in with you guys in a couple of days, OK? Take care. Bye.

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.
