If I had to relate this movie to another it would be the JAWS franchise, though there is a twist with this one that makes it a little more fun to watch. Staring Mandy Moore (remember her?) and Claire Holdt, with Matthew Modine, this is a very scary underwater survival movie.
What started out as a Mexican vacation to soothe a messy breakup for Lisa (Moore) with her sister Kate (Holdt), goes ever so slightly wrong when the winch snaps during a fairly routine shark sighting dive. What follows are the boat captain’s (Modine) attempts to rescue the girls who are stranded 47 meters down.
As I have said there is twist at the end, and that’s part of why I’m liking this movie. It just doesn’t end like you think it does, and I love a good plot twist. Mandy Moore was also part of my school years, but as a singer not an actress, but she does really well in this movie.
