’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.

Movie Sumary:

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.
