Goofs

At 47m, without direct light, blood looks green not red as spectrums of light are filtered out by the water. However, There are powerful lights attached to the cage and divers have flashlights, which would negate the effect of depth and explain why the red color is visible (both for blood and for the red patches on dive suits).

Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Movie
3 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

One of the first things taught in film school is if you can show the audience, don't tell them. That is why most voice overs are not necessary and exposition scenes bring most films to a screeching halt. 47 Meters Down commits the sin of not only showing us things, but having characters make sure we know what we are seeing by repeating what is being shown. Case in point: One character is swimming along the ocean floor and spots a spear gun. It is obviously a spear gun. Only an idiot would not know this is a spear gun. The character then feels the need to say, "There is a spear gun." This happens throughout the film. The air tank reads low, "I am almost out of air." A giant shark swims by, "Look there is a shark." When this film comes out on video, it would make a great drinking game. Whenever someone repeats what is shown on screen, take a shot. No one will be conscious by the end of the film. Skip this movie. It is awful.
