MOVIE REPORT CARD: 47 METERS DOWN
TITLE: 47 METERS DOWN
DIRECTOR: JOHANNES ROBERTS
STARRING: MANDY MOORE, CLAIRE HOLT, MATTHEW MODINE, CHRIS JOHNSON
While 47 Meters Down suffers from a plethora of problems, the flick manages to swim away mostly entertaining. Director Johannes Roberts, crafts something out of literally nothing here. Mandy Moore, and Claire Holt, just aren't strong enough for us to really care what happens to them. However, I'm not exactly sure if it is entirely their fault, or the skinny script, which is the problem. The duo are mostly left to shouting names, or breathing heavily, which can be grating over time. There is also a repetitive problem with the film. The same thing tends to happen more than once, and it gets annoying. Nevertheless, there are a few sequences which are sure to entertain. The CGI sharks, are a huge letdown too, but I like how they are used here. 47 Meters Down, is one of those flicks that gets worse, the more time one has to ruminate on it. Like, that boyfriend subplot, which was useless. I mean, why? Anyway, it's an entertaining, but quickly forgettable film.
