47 Meters Down: Uncaged (2019) (BLU-RAY/DVD REVIEW)
DIRECTED BY: Johannes Roberts
STARRING: Sistine Stallone, Sophie Nélisse, Nia Long
RATED: PG-13/REGION A/2:39/1080P/NUMBER OF DISCS 2

Four teenage divers discover that the sunken ruins of a Mayan city are also a hunting ground for deadly great white sharks. With their air supply steadily dwindling, the frightened girls must navigate the underwater labyrinth of claustrophobic caves and eerie tunnels in search of a way out of their watery hell.

So here we have a sequel to 47 Meters Down called 47 Meters Down: Uncaged! Now, you might ask yourself why something like 47 Meters Down needed a sequel, especially when it is a sequel in name only. But since we live in a world that has like three Open Water movies I guess we should just let it go and go along with it. And what we do get here is a better story on some levels. Being “Uncaged” means things are a lot more wide open this time around and we have a lot more action as a result. I’d call that an improvement over the original in a lot of ways on just that alone. So if you want different from the last, you do get that. And I will admit that I didn’t find it dull at any portion, so the pace is a good thing.

We also have 21-year-old Sistine Stallone in one of the leads here. Yes, she’s the daughter of Rambo himself and this is the first time I’ve seen her act and as far as I’m concerned she’s a solid addition to the movie. Plot-wise, this is a movie that could use a little work from time to time but if you like underwater action and a nice setting, this one might work for you. It can be a tense movie in spots, but all in all, it just comes across as a good popcorn flick to me and might even top the original in a lot of ways and I’d probably rather see this one if I had to choose.
