47 Meters Down: Uncaged follows the diving adventure of four teenage girls (Sophie Nélisse, Corinne Foxx, Brianne Tju and Sistine Stallone) exploring a submerged Mayan City. Once inside, their rush of excitement turns into a jolt of terror as they discover the sunken ruins are a hunting ground for deadly Great White Sharks. With their air supply steadily dwindling, the friends must navigate the underwater labyrinth of claustrophobic caves and eerie tunnels in search of a way out of their watery hell.Written by

Ben's name may be a reference to Ben McDaniel, an amateur cave diver who vanished while diving in Florida's Vortex Spring cave in 2010. His story is explored in the documentary Ben's Vortex (2012). See more »
When entering the Mayan sunken city, the characters pass through tunnels with straight angles supported by archways. The Mayans did not know how to build archways, so tunnels and corridors are characteristically triangular. See more »
What about the shark?
Don't worry it looks blind
Was that a great white?
It's like that Mexican tetra fish it must've evolved down here

It's fun in small doses, but generally disappointing.
If like me, you were lured in by the trailer, which to be fair for those of us that like shark movies, even though they're nearly all terrible, you can be forgiven for thinking this one would be different....
.....It wasn't unfortunately.
On the plus side, as is so often the case it is a nice idea, I love the idea of those cave sharks, blind, relying on sound, great, only they looked a little like Jaws III at times, and were a little on the dim side. The characters were such, that you didn't care if they got eaten or not, and apart from the quite brilliant scene used in the trailer (you can see why) it didn't really deliver many scares.
I won't say it was atrocious, because it wasn't, it is more what I'd class as a fun movie.
How long before a dive into the waters of The Arctic, and divers get terrified by Greenland sharks? One day.
