47 Meters Down- Kids’ Movie Review

Nothing like a vacation in Mexico. Beautiful resorts, crystal clear water, and entertaining night clubs.  Sisters Lisa (Mandy Moore) and Kate (Claire Holt) are definitely enjoying their relaxing getaway in Mexico until Kate decides they need some adventure. Besides, Lisa’s boyfriend dumped her before the trip because she’s so boring so Kate wants to get her sister out. After a night of dancing and drinking they meet two handsome local men who invite them on a shark-watching expedition the next day. Now the adventure begins as Lisa and Kate  join their new friends on a rickety old boat. Shortly after the girls enter the cage the cable snaps and the shark cage sinks to the bottom of the ocean…47 meters down. With limited oxygen and white sharks circling nearby, Lisa and Kate must try and remain calm and figure out how to survive.
