This is a faithful sequel to 2017’s 47 Meters Down. They didn’t just bank on a good brand; they threw good money at it. The cast is larger, so perhaps the body count will follow. Most of the new set of characters know nothing about scuba diving, which is one of many problems I have with this script. They probably don’t know much about sharks either, so they’re shit out of luck.
With its gorgeous underwater scenery and its incessant action, this film looks expensive. The characters are basically stuck in an underwater labyrinth, which really ups the ante in terms of cinematographic challenge. Sequels don’t always go the extra mile, but this one does, and it pays off. It’s one big name actor away from a blockbuster. It’s certainly of the best sequels out there.
47 Meters Down 2 has a solid soundtrack of popular songs. Sometimes uplifting, sometimes melodramatic, the tracks add immensely to the pacing and suspense. The tension is palpable. Very claustrophobic, suffocating, even; once this thing gets going, the panic never stops. Plot holes aside, this hectic gem will pin you to your seat, and it won’t let you breathe until it’s over.
