Two sisters are exploring the deep blue sea until something goes wrong. As they submerge 47m they encounter a creature that only wants flesh and blood. As they fight their way back to the top, they shortly run out of oxygen. With only an hour left they're not only racing against time they are racing against life and death. Written by
Some copies of the movie were accidentally released under the original title of 'In the Deep' in August 2016, right at the same time the film was bought by a new company and scheduled for theatrical distribution in summer 2017. Some stores were not notified in time, and the DVD ended up for sale for about a day before being recalled. They are now considered collectors items and go for $50 or more. No blu was released in that title, only the DVD (although the bluray is now available in the theatrical name of 47 meters down) See more »
The speed at which the girls fell in the cage would probably have burst their eardrums. This is because they did not appear to equalize once and it would have been very difficult for them to do so effectively wearing a full face mask. See more »
I have to say that IMDb has become more and more misleading with their ratings. Incredibly deep European movies getting low ratings while movies like this are ranking higher and higher every time. Reading all the reviews below, you get to understand why.
This movie is unrealistic and silly in many ways and this is no minor issue. I understand that cinema is a suspension of disbelief but this movie could have been much better if it had been more realistic. I won't get into details other than saying the behaviour of the characters (especially those lame cowards on deck) is unbelievable, the moments of terror boring and the decision made by everyone is dumb. The Coast Guard should have arrived immediately carrying proper gear like tiny explosives which are thrown around the girls (of course, knowing their location beforehand) in order to chase away the sharks.
The music is predictable. The action scenes are clichéd and not remarkable and worst of all, they are boring. That ripped off finale from "The Descent" and "Gravity" does not work because we have seen it before in much better films.
There are tragedy movies which are so real and in which the characters do everything their common sense dictates that the viewer cannot but suffer and empathize with their predicament. And the movie shines. No wonder such movies have become classics. This is not one of them. Boring and dumb. Stay away!
