Good movie.
Acting was ok.
Storyline was good.
More realistic then most movies so was dark in spots which added to the suspense.
Watched with a 10yr old and 16yr old. Kept them on the edge of their seats as well

One of the worst movies I've seen. Terrible storyline and it just got worse as it went on. I regret watching it to the end

Good movie. Some suspenseful moments. The ending was kinda disappointing

This movie was thrilling but too unrealistic. A couple of times when the blond women came out of the cage to get a signal to communicate with the people on the boat she shouldve died like three time. Especially when you're in shark infested waters.

A world of imaginary people and talking objects becomes a young girl’s getaway and place of freedom when she meets an old, isolated neighbor. Age means nothing to the two. The Little Prince tells a beautiful tale of growing up but still continuing to be free and live life to the fullest. The embedded messages, the evident ones, the think-even-deeper ones, all left me curious to know more and evaluate the way maturity’s standards are set around me today. Going through The Little Prince left me speechless, and I truly still am. The Little Prince is a true work of art, and nothing less.

The storyline behind the production of “47 Meters Down” may have seemed cliché to a few of the audience members, but I can fairly say that I strongly disagree. What differs this movie from others is that instead of giving the viewers a simple, happy ending, the producers took a realistic turn to the plot and showcased a couple of the greatest possibilities in a similar situation to the one Kate and Lisa found themselves in. For instance, they decided to bring science into the equation as easily swimming up to the surface wouldn’t work as they’d need a 5-minute decompression break to avoid the bends. They also couldn’t easily switch from one oxygen tank to another as it comes with harmful side effects, a fact I was unaware of even after watching countless movies with a similar plot. I would say that “47 Meters Down” was by far, one of the best and well-thought-out movies with high-end performing actors that brought the whole film together. Overall, I absolutely enjoyed watching “47 Meters Down” and I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in a thrilling, yet meaningful, yet heart-wrenching movie. Rating 4.5/5

Would be better if you could actually SEE what was going on majority of the time (set underwater obviously and they didn't think to use ANY lighting for 70% of the movie). Have to say the twist at the end was pretty good.

Entertaining low budget under water accident movie.

The older sister was the most annoying character written in the past few years. Nothing original in this movie. Not worth watching again.

Fair movie, but too predictable.

The script was just dreadful. After the nth time Mandy Moore whimper or screech or hyperventilate, I started to root for the shark.
