Did You Know?


Claire Holt (Kate) and Yani Gellman (Louis) have both appeared in Pretty Little Liars (2010). Holt played Samara and Gellman played Garrett. See more »


As they chat awaiting rescue, Kate asks Lisa "the other night at the hotel, what did you mean when you said that your relationship was the only thing you were good at?" Yet the line Lisa actually spoke when she admitted her boyfriend had dumped her was to call the relationship "the one good thing in my life." Of course, Kate's query in the cage may not have been meant to recall a line actually spoken in the film, but typically a reference like this is meant to be "bookended," addressing something viewers have seen so they understand the reference. The closeness though suggests that Mandy Moore accidentally altered her line, and the director didn't notice or think it mattered, so left the shot in. See more »

A scary situation doesn't always translate on screen
4 May 2020 | by funtasticfourSee all my reviews

Jaws. The only shark movie that matters, and yet they fascinate and scare us and we enjoy being scared by them. What happens in this movie is indeed a scary situation, and having watched it may or may not prevent me from getting in a cage at some point. I'm more afraid of getting the bends than the actual sharks, but this movie did feel somewhat realistic. The ending and the almost ending in particular were well done, but I don't need to watch this a second time, otherwise it would be a 7.
