Storyline

Amy, her husband James and their baby Sarah travel to Mexico to sail in the yacht of their reckless friend Dan with their common friends Zach and Lauren and celebrate the thirtieth birthday of Zach. They are introduced to Dan's girlfriend Michelle and they drink and recall moments of their past while navigating. Miles away from the shore, Michelle suggest to stop the yacht and swim in the calm water. Amy stays in the boat since she has a childhood trauma with ocean and Dan stays with her. Later, the irresponsible Dan pushes Amy overboard, falling with her in a prank. Once in the water, the group realizes that Dan forgot to put the embarkation ladder and the freeboard makes impossible to climb to the main deck the yacht. With the baby alone in the boat and stranded in the open sea, they panic and their desperation lead them to a tragic fight for survival. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Better than the original
1 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A in name only sequel. Zach (Niklaus Lange) and his girlfriend Lauren (Ali Hillis) are celebrating his birthday aboard the boat of horny buddy Dan (Eric Dane) and his girlfriend of the moment Michelle (Cameron Richardson). Also joining are buddy Amy (Susan May Pratt), who's deathly afraid of drowning, her hubby James (Richard Speight Jr.) and their baby girl. When way out in the ocean they all decide to swim (Amy unwillingly) and realize that they can't get back on the boat! There's no one up there to help them and they're adrift in the middle of the ocean...

Stupid premise (really--NO one thought of making sure there was a ladder to climb up?) saved by good direction and very good acting. With the exception of Dane (from TV's "Grey's Anatomy") everyone is unknown but they're all good. You have to give the cast credit--they spent at least 80% of the movie in the water. That can't have been easy! They all go through the stages of anger, fear and resignation but with a good script and good acting. Also there is (surprisingly) NO female nudity! Speight Jr. and Dane have nude swimming scenes (back view only) but they're handsome guys with good bodies so it's easy to look at. The only debit is the somewhat confusing ending.

I hated the original "Open Water". It was OK but WAY overpraised by critics. This one got deserved good reviews but went, I believe, direct to DVD. It's worth picking up or renting. I give it an 8.
