Based on true events, Open Water follows a young couple, Daniel and Susan, (Daniel Travis and Blanchard Ryan) on an island holiday. Even before they leave for the airport, we learn that Daniel and Susan's relationship is under strain from their workaholic lifestyles, and they need a vacation even more than they realized.
The next morning the couple, both certified scuba divers, board a local dive boat for an underwater tour of the reef. The boat is crowded with other vacationers, and after a series of miscommunications, the couple is accidentally left behind.
What follows is the reconstruction of their harrowing ordeal: cold, alone and miles from land, the couple is adrift in shark-infested waters.
What the critics are saying:
"Like so much live shark bait, this story winds up missing the vital middle parts."- Stella Papamichael, BBCi Film"You can feel the water, stretching against an unsheltering sky, seep into your bones."- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone"Rarely, but sometimes, a movie can have an actual physical effect on you. It gets under your defences and sidesteps the 'it's only a movie' reflex and creates a visceral feeling that might as well be real."- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
A low budget "reality" thriller about a pair of scuba divers stranded in the middle of the ocean that proves you don't need big money to make big scares.
Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
