Suspenseful Thriller

This is a good suspenseful movie that I watched with my daughters, ages 12 and 14. There is very little cursing, and no extreme curse words. There is nothing even remotely sexual. There are, however, gory death scenes at the hands of sharks. On the bright side, it was full of good life lessons; Don’t scuba dive without a guide line into a cave you’re not supposed to be in without anyone knowing.

Don’t waste your time!

The movie is a total waste of time unless you like to see blood and gore with sharks. The dialogue is atrocious and apparently people can talk underwater while still with a breathing tube. Not kidding! No-one pointed out to the clueless film-makers that you cannot hear underwater - yet here are the girls having conversations with each other! And a fish that screams! Interesting as fish have no lungs or vocal chords! And an alarm goes off and everything hears it! Hasn’t anyone told the brainless director that human ears can’t hear an alarm underwater! Oh my! Basic science! This is not just fantasy but the full-scale assault on the intelligence . Oh and btw, we have also to believe that a great white shark - one of the most voracious of oceanic predators - can survive, reproduce and evolve in an underwater cave so as to lose its eyesight. Duh! And just one last point - I have never scuba dived in my life but even I know that you cannot dive and swim at depth for long without fins. Was there no diving expert around when this movie was made? Or did he drop dead in horror at the goofs? The director and script writers have also not learned that less is more when it comes to tension and there is totally pointless slasher movie scenes which do nothing more than to revolt. I do not like to see young girls torn to pieces by sharks . Do not see it as it is not recommended. The dialogue between the girls is absolutely embarrassing btw and has obviously been written by 40-year-old blokes!
