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 of 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

Open Water 2 (2006)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

I believe this film was originally called Adrift but had the title changed to Open Water 2 to cash in on the first film. Either way, this here is pretty much a remake/rip off of the first film but it's actually pretty good. Six friends go out on a large boat to have some fun and halfway through the cruise they decide to go for a swim. Once in the water they realize that they forgot to put the ladder down, which means they are stuck in the water. Unlike the first film, sharks don't play a part in this film but we mainly see the six trying to figure out a way to get back on the boat. Technically speaking the film is pretty well made and features a nice music score. The cinematography is also pretty good for such a low budget film. Performances are about average but better than expected. If you enjoyed the film film then you'll probably find this one mildly entertaining but just don't pay too much attention to the title.
