Two sisters are exploring the deep blue sea until something goes wrong. As they submerge 47m they encounter a creature that only wants flesh and blood. As they fight their way back to the top, they shortly run out of oxygen. With only an hour left they're not only racing against time they are racing against life and death. Written by
At some point, the instructor on the boat tells the divers that he delayed sending more air tanks because that would increase their risk of narcosis. 47 meters have limited effect on divers (a common saying among divers is "40 meters one drink, 50m two drinks") and the risk of "hallucinations" is largely exaggerated in the case of two young women in good health. Besides, delaying the delivery of additional air tanks drastically increases the risk for the divers to die from lack of air, obviously a far worse scenario than narcosis (you should also consider the risk that the fall might have damaged their equipment and caused abnormal air consumption). A normal reaction should therefore have been to send additional tanks as soon as possible, ideally attached to a cable that can lead the divers back to the boat (instead of just dropping the tanks in the water with a flashing light).

Oh, it's like you're going to the zoo - except you're in the cage.

I had a great time with this one! It really succeeded where few monster movies manage to. It provided tension, scary moments and it did made me hold my breath!
Beside this year's The Shallows, we got In The Deep, which is a beautifully shot movie, good acting, nice reactions, pretty much the whole nine yards here. It was a great little movie, I'm just sad it didn't get the attention it should have. People need to know that this is not another low budget shark movie, but a damn good one!
Watch it and you will not regret. It provides a great, great atmosphere and surely enough, most of you will enjoy it.
