47 Meters Down: Uncaged | 2019 | PG-13 | – 4.6.4

content-ratingsWhy is “47 Meters Down: Uncaged” rated PG-13? The MPAA rating has been assigned for “creature related violence and terror, some bloody images and brief rude gestures.” The Kids-In-Mind.com evaluation includes many scenes with teen girls wearing revealing swimsuits, many scenes of shark attacks leading to death and injuries with blood and injuries shown in the aftermath, many jump scenes with sharks lunging out of the darkness, an extended drowning scene, and a few obscene hand gestures and some strong language. Read our parents’ guide below for details on sexual content, violence & strong language.”


Four teenage girls are trapped in an underwater cave with giant sharks and with no way out. Claustrophobia and the fear of being eaten overwhelm the proceedings. Also with Sistine Rose Stallone, Nia Long, Corinne Foxx, John Corbett, Brec Bassinger, Sophie Nélisse, Brianne Tju, Davi Santos and Khylin Rhambo. Directed by Johannes Roberts. [Running Time: 1:29]

47 Meters Down: Uncaged VIOLENCE/GORE 6

 – Five people surface in an area surrounded by shear rock walls and as they float in the water we see two large sharks moving toward them from below: they panic and splash around trying to get away while one climbs on a cable to pull herself up and another jumps on the cable also causing the cable to give way and thus dumping them both back into the water; one teen is grabbed by both sharks and torn apart (we see blood in water). Two teen girls swim toward a boat, one makes it up the ladder and one is grabbed by a shark and taken away; the first girl gets a flare gun and dives back in the water shooting the shark in the face and it lets the other girl go (we see her with a large bloody bite on her midsection). A teen girl is grabbed by the leg by a large shark and she uses a shark tooth to stab it (we see blood on the shark) until it lets her go and she climbs onto a boat and is nearly bitten by another jumping shark (we see a large bloody bite mark on the girl’s leg). A large shark swims across the screen grabbing a young man and taking him off-screen (we hear him yelling and blood fills the water). A young man working on underwater welding stops when he hears a loud sound and finds his work light tipped over; he investigates and is attacked by a large shark; the water turns read and we hear the man scream and then stop screaming and we later see his severed head (with partial flesh missing) floating among the rocks nearby and a teen girl screams when she finds it. A shark jumps out of the water grabbing a man and taking him under (we do not see the man again).
 A large shark chases a teen girl as she swims away, three other teen girls make loud noises to attract the shark and it swims toward each one in turn until the girls and a man swim into a narrow passage while screaming and the shark is unable to follow (this scene is chaotic with a lot of bubbles and screaming). A large shark chases teen girls trying to escape a cave and it snaps at them as they swim through a narrow passage that it cannot fit through. An underwater, motorized device moves around an open area and bounces off walls with no one nearby; a large shark swims across the screen and chomps on it as four teens watch and hide by lying still against the rocks as the shark swims back and forth over and around them until the girls hide behind a metal grate as the shark slams into it repeatedly. Two teen girls surface and call for help from a nearby boat; we see that the boat is chumming and the girls are surrounded by blood and several large sharks prowl around them. Two teen girls swim against the underwater viewing windows of a tourist boat and pound on them calling for help.
 Two teen girls crawl along a rock ledge next to a swirling current to reach a passage; when they get to the passage a large shark lunges out and grabs one teen’s oxygen tank and pulls her inside as she struggles and she disconnects from her apparatus and we see her swimming away from the shark, and then we watch her gasping helplessly as she drowns. A strong current swirls in an opening underwater pulling three teen girls toward it; one teen grabs onto a rock wall and two others try to pull her out of the current but they lose their grip and the one teen is pulled out of sight. Two teen girls struggle against a current that pulls them to the bottom of the ocean; they make their way to a passage that becomes very narrow and their tanks get stuck a couple of times so they remove them and hold their breath hoping to reach the surface before drowning.
 Three teen girls dive under water carrying a rescue beacon that makes an alarm sound and flashlights; two large sharks swim around them with their mouths open and sharp teeth exposed. As four teens swim away from a large shark, the passage they are swimming through collapses and blocks them in; they swim back the way they came to find a guide rope. After insisting that she saw something move, a teen girl swims away from her group and finds a fish swimming nearby; when she reaches her hand toward it, it seems to lunge at her with its mouth open and she slams back into a column that tips and rubble from walls and statues fall all around clouding the water and the group is separated; we then see the outline of a large shark swimming in the area. A teen girl screams and a man grabs her from behind and tells her to be quiet (we see a large shark circling the area). Four teen girls swim through catacombs, where there are piles of human skulls and bones. A teen girl swims through a narrow passage alone to follow the sound of music coming from elsewhere and loses contact with her group.
 Four teen girls put on scuba diving equipment and dive through narrow passages and into a cave where they find a sunken altar with statues and a platform where they say human sacrifices were performed. Four teen girls drive to a remote area, and walk along a path and down a wall to a body of water; they jump off a high wall into the water and swim to a raft.
 A man shows a large shark tooth to his teen daughters and says it looks like it’s from a great white and he shows photos of underwater tunnels that he just discovered. A teen girl says, “We’re gonna drown.” A teen girl says, “We’re gonna die down here” in several scenes. A teen girl talks about Mayans and Conquistadors.
 We see a teen girl fall in the water along with her books and backpack and she climbs out of the water soaked as others stand around teasing her (she was pushed in a pool). Underwater scenes show dark caves with human skulls and skeletons as opening credits play.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
