47 Meters Down

★½☆☆ – (2017) – Two friends become stranded in an underwater cage beneath shark infested waters. Does manage a moment or two of suspense, and the overall dread is fitting, but the rancid dialog all but destroys the experience. The characters are annoying to the point where one can’t help but root for the sharks.

The Chaser

★★★☆ – (2008) – A former detective who uses prostitutes to track whomever stole some of his women ends up searching for a serial killer. The complicated but clear plot is engaging throughout thanks to swift editing, touches of humor, and grueling suspense. Takes enough jarring turns to keep one glued to their seat in anticipation of how it all unfolds.
