Did You Know?

Trivia

James Van Der Beek was cast as Lisa's boyfriend Stuart, and filmed several scenes with Mandy Moore. However, all of those scenes were cut. The final version of the film only references Stuart. See more »

Goofs

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 »

47 Meters Down: Unbelievable, and that's it's problem
6 February 2019 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

47 Meters Down is a highly claustrophobic shark movie starring Mandy Moore and Matthew Modine but it's flaws are quite unique.

Telling the story of two girls who go into a shark cage in Mexico to see the great whites but fall into peril when the chain snaps and they're plunged into darkness.

Let me say that visually the movie is incredible and is one of the most claustrophobic heart pounding films I've seen in years. You feel for these ladies, the movie gets across the panic, severity and time restrictions very well and it taps into something which makes me personally feel very uncomfortable.

But, and it's a big but the movie's logistics are dumbfoundingly stupid and defy logic. What I mean by that is that nobody involved bothered doing any research into oxygen at these depths, what is done here not only isn't possible but is to moronic science fiction levels. It quite frankly insults the intelligence of the viewer.

If you can get past that (And I couldn't) it's quite a memorable little film that looks great, has passable performances (I've always liked Moore) and is fairly unique.

If they'd done some research and applied it to the film then this would have been a lot better. However if they had then this would have had to be a different film altogether to be even remotely realistic.

The Good:

Looks incredible

Sets the tone perfectly

Mandy Moore

Unique stuff

The Bad:

Offensively unrealistic
