Trivia

The film was retitled to "In the Deep" in Spring 2016 and given a VOD/DVD release date of August 2nd through Anchor Bay Entertainment and the Weinstein Co. However, one week before the planned release, the film was bought by Byron Allen's Entertainment Studios, retitled back to "47 Meters Down" and given a wide-release theatrical plan for summer 2017 through Freestyle Releasing.

Goofs

47 meters down is more than 150 feet deep. A normal diver with full tank only has about 5 minutes of bottom time at 100 feet. Anything below that will require special mixture of gases in order to fight Nitrogen Narcosis. The bottom time takes into consideration the ascension time, stress and decompression stops at specific depths to prevent the bends from rising too fast. See more »

Superb
16 September 2016 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This could have been a cliché shark movie, but it's not. In some shark movies, the creatures are so unrealistic that the plot loses any credibility. In this, the sharks are just there, where they should be, and doing what they normally do, and the film is very much more terrifying for that. The real horror here is running out of air, and I'm pretty sure I'm not the only viewer of this great little atmospheric film breathing very shallowly indeed to conserve precious air whilst watching it! Having done a bit of diving off Mexico, I reckon this movie is pretty accurate. The cinematography is absolutely superb--every shot is like being there, gorgeously lit and incredibly claustrophobic. I liked the main characters: neither were bimbos. I wanted them both to live. Along with The Shallows, I'd say this is one of the best shark movies out there. Highly recommended.
