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.

But on its own B-movie terms 47 Meters Down works just fine, not wearing out its welcome thanks to its quick set-up, rapid pacing and brief running time.

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.

Arizona Republic

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

Ed Williamson

All of this is pretty gripping overall, but this sort of thing relies on character.

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

Brian Lowry

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

It's summer, and if seeing a kinda-dumb shark-freak-out movie sounds good, then book this 90-minute cheapie cruise.
