Cage Dive 2017 3 / 10
Set in South Australia.
My wife and l were going to see Dark Tower, as per the local movie app. only to find it had finished playing a week ago. Since we were already there and the time was right, we went to see this instead. We should have just come straight back home. In horror films one of the games is predicting who will survive and who won’t. That issue was decided very early on, so the movie had to generate tension in other ways, with mixed success. The main characters are three young Americans who come to Oz to dive with Great White Sharks, the cast are all unknowns, and the plot way too obvious, thin and contrived, it also has some holes in it so large a Great White could swim could straight through it. I remember a case a few years ago of an American tourist couple who went out on the Great Barrier Reef, and then got left behind by their boat. They were never found. That could have made a more interesting film.
My wife hated it, and wanted to walk out, but l wanted to watch it until the end. I think l should have listened to her advice on this one. She described it as a very, very, very, very, very, VERY rubbish film.
