’47 Meters Down: Uncaged’ Review: A Sequel But Unrelated To Its Predecessor
The Film ’47 Meters Down: Uncaged’ is supposed to be a sequel of the ’47 Meters Down’ released in 2017. But while they may have the same theme, they are unrelated in every other way.
Four teenage girls (Corinne Foxx, Sistine Stallone, Sophie Nélisse, and Brianne Tju) explore 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.

Let take a look at some Critic Reviews for ’47 Meters Down: Uncaged’
Todd Gilchrist (The Wrap)
Roberts populates convincingly elaborate underwater sets with a suitably appealing cast for a claustrophobic adventure that manages to deliver some real terror before it somewhat inevitably levels up into absurdity.
Trace Thurman (consequenceofsound)
47 Meters Down: Uncaged may be a bit slight in the script department and features some cartoonish aquatic beasts, but it delivers non-stop, anxiety-inducing terror once it reaches its halfway point.
Owen Gleiberman (Variety)
It takes a lot of chops to shoot the majority of a movie underwater, and Johannes Roberts is a skillful crafter of images … But he’s a throw-what-he-can-at-the-audience director, and there’s little in 47 Meters Down: Uncaged that really sticks. The shocks, however, are consistently well-timed, and for the audience that seeks out a movie like this one that’s probably enough.
Bilge Ebiri (New York Times)
The action is unclear and the menace unconvincing. The tin-eared dialogue – of which there is a shocking amount, for a movie set largely underwater – doesn’t help either.
Peter Howell (Toronto Star)
This brainless sequel to 47 Meters Down forsakes much of what made that 2017 survival thriller the lean and mean success it was, a credible shark threat being first and foremost.
