| Pretty solid!
For a scary shark flick I found it totally worked. Of course the intro, party scene & boys are what you'd expect for this genre, and had me wondering if I'd make it to the end due to all the cliché.

But it did take off from there nicely, had some genuine holy f*ck moments, a good pacing and had me wondering all the way if the girls would make it to the end...

The camera work was great and the sharks well done (a bit too aggressive for total realism, but hey). The ending was also original, for once!

Compared to The Shallows, I'd say it's equally solid in terms of entertainment value and getting the viewer hooked until the end.

Overall a solid 7 in my book.

Trivia

However, one week before the planned release, the film was bought by Byron Allen's Entertainment Studios, retitled back to "47 Meters Down" and given a wide-release theatrical plan for summer 2017 through Freestyle Releasing.

Goofs

At some point, the instructor on the boat tells the divers that he delayed sending more air tanks because that would increase their risk of narcosis. 47 meters have limited effect on divers (a common saying among divers is "40 meters one drink, 50m two drinks") and the risk of "hallucinations" is largely exaggerated in the case of two young women in good health. Besides, delaying the delivery of additional air tanks drastically increases the risk for the divers to die from lack of air, obviously a far worse scenario than narcosis (you should also consider the risk that the fall might have damaged their equipment and caused abnormal air consumption). A normal reaction should therefore have been to send additional tanks as soon as possible, ideally attached to a cable that can lead the divers back to the boat (instead of just dropping the tanks in the water with a flashing light).


Crazy Credits

One of the crew members is credited as both a safety diver, and "broccoli wrangler".
