  • Characters are swept away violently by a strong current as they try to navigate through the ruins.
  • A girl is shown being bullied at the beginning of the film. She is almost in tears. This might be upsetting for some.
  • There are a few tense and emotional family moments.
  • At times, body parts of previous victims are shown suddenly, usually causing a jump scare. Some of these images are graphic.
  • The Mayan temple has a creepy atmosphere to it.

Violence & Gore

  • A shark grabs a character's diving tank and chews on it. She wiggles free but then drowns. She coughs and bubbles come out of her mouth and nose as she dies. The life is shown leaving her eyes as she slowly sinks. This is probably the most disturbing scene in the movie.
  • Sharks attack characters as they swim for safety. One character is shown with deep teeth prints in her back after being bitten and pulled under by a shark. Another character is pulled under, and she stabs the shark in the eye to try to get it to release her. Both characters are shown with bloody injuries.
