Open Water (2003)

My quick rating - 5,8/10. Something short and I swear I have seen this but no record of that in my database. I had definitely seen this one and it is still a frightening flick in the terror of being in a situation where there is literally nothing you can do. The isolation and hopelessness of the predicament these two found themselves in, while diving on tour at sea. The boat and the rest of the tourists leave while our two main characters are still underwater stranding them miles out from shore. I like the fact that director Chris Kentis didn't "Hollywood" this up and focus on the sharks too much or try to glorify some man vs nature type thing. Instead, the sheer will to survive and all the range of emotions that would settle in are front and center. Couple the well-made aspects of making it all feel so real with the fact that this is based on a true story, and you will truly feel anxiety while you are viewing it. That is if you can get by the lack of gore and often stretches of very little going on. Some may find this boring but if you let your mind grasp what it would be like, I think you will get a lot more out of this one. Glad I went back and checked this one out again.
