QUICK TAKE:
Suspense: Two sisters must contend with being stuck forty-seven meters below the surface of the sea when their shark cage comes lose from their boat and sinks.
PLOT:
Lisa (MANDY MOORE) and her sister, Kate (CLAIRE HOLT), are on vacation together in Mexico when Lisa informs Kate that she just broken up with her significant other. To help her get over that, Kate has them go out for a night on the town where they end up meeting and hitting it off with Louis (YANI GELLMAN) and Benjamin (SANTIAGO SEGUARA).

The two men suggest that the sisters join them the following day in going out into the sea and observing sharks from the safety of a steel cage. Kate is all for that, but Lisa is a bit hesitant, although she goes along and all four of them meet their captain, Taylor (MATTHEW MODINE), and his first mate of sorts, Javier (CHRIS J. JOHNSON).

They boat out into the open water, toss chum into that, and Louis and Benjamin take the first ride down five meters underwater to view the 20-foot sharks. Next up, it's Lisa and Kate's turn, and despite being nervous, they enjoy it once they're underwater.

That is, until the line holding their cage slips and drops them down to the seafloor, where they find themselves stuck 47 meters underwater. From that point on, and with sharks all around, and limited air in their scuba tanks, they try to figure out how to get themselves out of this dire predicament.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Teens might be drawn to the plot, while Moore or anyone else in the cast might draw in others.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For sequences of intense peril, bloody images, and brief strong language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
