47 Meters Down
Shark films can be incredible, Jaws is started the blockbuster trend, and to this day is still an iconic film. Deep Blue Sea and The Shallows are examples of shark films that can be fun. Then there's Sharknado, and Sharktapus... not good. 47 Meters down fits in the category fun shark films. The opening act is hard to sit through with garbage dialog only there for exposition and to give us a forced backstory for our two lead characters. However, once we get into the water and the Sharks attacks we really get a move on. The suspense is strong, and jump scares hit at the right moment. It is a thrilling dumb fun ride through the ocean. As far as a Cinelinx film score I am giving 47 Meters Down a 2.6, but I'm adding in my Jeebus Bonus with a .4 for the fun and awesome Sharks!
