Consensus: 47 Meters Down doesn't take its terrifying premise quite as far as it should, but its toothy antagonists still offer a few thrills for less demanding genre enthusiasts.

This low budget but highly-effective horror film is exactly the kind of movie that legendary Hollywood D-movie producer Roger Corman would have knocked out in the '70s: plenty of writhing female limbs, no surprises.

It's taut and suspenseful, and there's a jittery vibe to the whole thing.

47 Metres Down is great fun -- despite a slightly dodgy twist ending clunkily telegraphed halfway through the film -- and Moore and Holt carry the drama well.

Even at 89 minutes, you can feel the oxygen running out of this movie.

The movie's saving grace is the visceral response that sharks produce, even more than four decades after Jaws first had audiences screaming.

Clever, claustrophobic premise elevates mediocre shark thriller.

Toronto Star

It's gratifying to see a summer popcorn movie where a simple idea goes a long way.

While the plot is a bit shaky in parts, the overall effect of creating needed tension and some outright, out-of-your-seat jumps of fright is quite effective.

The most frustrating thing is, there's the bones of a decent film here.
