You’d bet that a shark thriller starring Mandy Moore would be all about seeing the “This Is Us” hot momma in a skimpy swimsuit. And you’d be wrong about “47 Meters Down.”
During a relaxing trip to Mexico meek Lisa (Moore) tells her wild sister Kate (Claire Holt, of “Pretty Little Liars”) that she’s been dumped. Kate’s remedy? Pictures of Lisa living it up — and on the edge — so that her ex realizes she’s no wimp.
Which is why the sibs accept a random guy’s offer to take them cage diving in illegally chummed waters infested with sharks. Really.
Fortunately, the film does more than drop anchor on a tired story about the depths women will go to in order to impress a guy. What unfolds is a smart, tense nail-biter that’s bound to leave some clinging to the shoreline this summer.
