47 Meters Down: Uncaged
Director – Johannes Roberts
Cast – Sophie Nelisse, Corinne Foxx, Brianne Tju, Sistine Stallone
Rating – 1.5/5
Produced by a firm named Fyzz Pictures, the survival thriller before the opening credits have ended gives the impression that it’s some juvenile joke.
Things get worse. The movie is a testament to the gloomy fact that no matter how amazing a first thought may be, Hollywood will roll back its eyes in bliss in the slightest whiff of a franchise, however poorly conceived. As though Uncaged has no storyline link to the first 47 Meters Away – it tells an entirely unrelated story, populated with a new pair of personalities – Fyzz Pictures might love to feel that there is a fraction of the crowd which will possibly watch a trailer for this movie, reevaluate the reputable 47 Meters Away brand, knock their hard-won cash on the counter and need a ticket.
Not merely is Uncaged massively inferior to the first movie (that was not all that good to start with)it does away with all the one thing which created the initial 47 Meters Down somewhat intriguing. While the first movie (also directed by Johannes Roberts) came up with the ingenious set-up of stranding a few girls within an underwater viewing cage, the next one, bless its progressiveness, allows them to float about freely.
By restricting both protagonists in a suburban area, the very first movie unintentionally restricted itself. And like both resourceful heroines, it found itself coming up with ingenious new ways to twist of tricky situations. And as the first movie’s set-up was scary just because of how relatable it had been — someone of us might get an experience sport-related accident, it indicated — that the next movie’s existence is dependent entirely on the direct foursome’s persistent stupidity.
As they float through submerged Mayan catacombs towards certain doom, among these catcalls yet another, “Your $$ could hardly fit through,” and receives this magnificent comeback in return: “Well, at least I have an a$$.”
Almost 90 percent of the 47 Meters Down Uncaged places underwater, which is not ideal. However, luckily, you will have just about 80 minutes to acclimatize and give to its murky visuals. Additionally, it does not help that the performances are weak; so bad, in actuality, the expressions on each of the four lead actors’ faces indicate a hungry shark is continually nibbling in their legs when they are on dry soil. We could and flag-bearer of’ nepotism’ into 47 Meters Down: Uncaged’s record of crimes.
