47 Meters Down: Uncaged follows the diving adventure of four teenage girls (Sophie Nélisse, Corinne Foxx, Brianne Tju and Sistine Stallone) exploring 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.Written by

It's fun in small doses, but generally disappointing.
If like me, you were lured in by the trailer, which to be fair for those of us that like shark movies, even though they're nearly all terrible, you can be forgiven for thinking this one would be different....
.....It wasn't unfortunately.
On the plus side, as is so often the case it is a nice idea, I love the idea of those cave sharks, blind, relying on sound, great, only they looked a little like Jaws III at times, and were a little on the dim side. The characters were such, that you didn't care if they got eaten or not, and apart from the quite brilliant scene used in the trailer (you can see why) it didn't really deliver many scares.
I won't say it was atrocious, because it wasn't, it is more what I'd class as a fun movie.
How long before a dive into the waters of The Arctic, and divers get terrified by Greenland sharks? One day.
