We all have fears and phobias, mine just happens to be the ocean (we don’t know what’s down there!) and thanks to watching Jaws at a young age… sharks. And the one scenario that has popped into my mind more than any others is being trapped in a shark cage and it plummeting into the dark depths of the ocean. So when I heard about 47 Meters Down, a movie about just that, I figured it had been a while since a movie scared me, so why not check it out?
The film follows sisters Kate and Lisa, played by Claire Holt and Mandy Moore, on their trip to Mexico. In the middle of the night, Kate finds Lisa crying. Turns out her boyfriend recently broke up with her due to her being “too boring”. To cheer her up, Kate takes Lisa out for drinks where they meet two random guys. Before the night comes to an end, Kate and Lisa are invited to go cage diving the next day. Kate’s down for some face to face time with some sharks, but Lisa isn’t so sure. Kate, of course, convinces her to do it.
