47 Meters Down [Movie Review]

7:30 AM 37 Comments A+ a-

I remember watching Jaws way back in 1990's and the movie scar me for a very long time.
Some images of the sharks and the image of muddy water in Sarawak plus the stories about Bujang Senang was enough to keep me away from the river.

I will never do this!
And then comes 47 Meters Down - with its marvellous trailer that got me really excited about the movie.

Lisa and Kate were vacationing in Mexico when Lisa mentioned that her boyfriend dumped her for being 'too boring'. In her bid to liven her sister's mood, Kate brought Lisa to a party by the beach where they met Javier and Louis. The couples danced until the early morning.

Peekaboo - I see you, my dinner!
The boys told the girls about their cage diving experience and watching great white sharks and the story got Kate really excited. After many coaxing sessions and the fact that Lisa wants to prove to her ex-boyfriend that she is not boring, the girls agreed to go cage diving.

Upon seeing the old ship that Captain Taylor was showing them, Lisa was still a bit apprehensive but Kate managed to persuade her to go on with the trip. The boys went first and emerged gleefully - happy after seeing the sharks up close.

This does not suit you - it makes you fat!
The girls went in - also happy to see the sharks swimming so close to their cage. When it was time to reel the cage in, the cable broke off and the cage went straight to the bottom of the sea level at 47 meters deep.

Being Kate was the only one who knows about diving procedures, the duo was up to their necks with troubles - their tanks, the cages and not forgetting the sharks around the dark water.

Let me inside, I don't want to be dinner!
Will the duo be safe?
Plot: 4.2/ 5.0. I love the first quarter of the movie - Lisa being forced into diving because she wanted to prove to the world that she was not as boring as her ex- boyfriend think. I love how the duo communicated and make the best of their situations to survive the ordeal. But I think there should be more action - I want more sharks, blood etc. Haha.

Cast: 4.5/ 5.0. No complaints about the cast - everyone did the characters justice. 

Will I watch it again: I probably will but it has to be with some great friends. Hehe.

Ehh cerita ni sama dengan filem In The Deep kan? Filem ni tahun 2014 dah ada. Maybe masuk pawagam di Malaysia lama kot? Well cerita shark ni memang berdebar. Tapi suka tonton The Shallow lakonan Blake Lively. 47 Meters Down lakonan Mandy Moore acaner? Best tak?

Mandy Moore tak mengecewakan. Jangan bandingkan dengan The Shallows sebab itu adalah movie paling ngeri kot I rasa haha

Very interesting blog. A lot of blogs I see these days don't really provide anything that attract others, but I'm most definitely interested in this one. Just thought that I would post and let you know.
