47 Meters Down is a bigger nothingburger than Rachel Maddow’s Trump tax scoop. I left the theater feeling nothing for this movie and I feel even less writing this review. If you want a better Shark thriller, watch last years The Shallows, it’s better in every aspect.
Hollywood is wondering why no one is going to the movie theater now and tickets sales are way down. This film answers that question because the only things they can seem to do now is Remake, Reboot, Sequel, complain about the President, and rip-off the idea of a Cinematic Universe nobody asked for in the first place. The Mummy is a bitter disappointment on so many levels.
This is a damn fine movie, all the Reddit talk is just people projecting their own views into the film, it isn’t Feminist Propaganda and it’s not a film to be concerned about what image it gives to little girls. If you grew up reading comics while patiently waiting to see Wonder Woman on the big screen for years, this film is the heroism movie you have waited for.
There is no way around it, Baywatch is amiss on almost every level. Rock’s likable charm can’t save this film and honestly, he’s much better in action films than trying to save BS comedies like this. Zac Efron has his name attached to another stinker, and I’m not sure any of the women actually won being in his film, except Kelly Rohrbach on the basis you actually know who she is now. Baywatch is a sad cash grab that makes sad cash grabs look bad.
