Absolutely terrifying. Open Water is a gripping tale about what happens when things go completely, terribly, cruelly, wrong. Like, "how can there be a God in the universe" wrong. Everything about this film grabbed my attention-- from the amatuer production value and the none-the-less interesting and highly-skilled camera work, to the convincing, natural-feeling performances, to the growing sense o... read more

didn't meet expectations

I was curious and bought the DVD. But now after watching it, I am going to sell it again. This is definitely not the movie you want to watch twice.

The whole idea of the plot is cool (two people alone on the ocean, but there is just to little going on and that what is happening ("something touched my leg") is hard to show on film.
Would have been an awesome book ...

Entertaining, But Depressing.

Let me start out by saying, that this film, is not supposed to have a great plot, or great acting. This is just one of those films, to entertain an audience. The plot is a little like this: a couple, goes on vacation, to some area with a lot of water (the name of the place escapes me). While on a boat, going out for a deep sea diving excursion, they are left behind, by their fellow crew members. W... read more

Description: Proving that the power of imagination is much more terrifying than what meets the eye, OPEN WATER is Chris Kentis's intensely realistic deep-sea drama, "based on true events." The film's leering digital video camera allows viewers to float like shark-bait, stranded in the middle of the ocean with Susan and Daniel (Blanchard ... (more)

Killer Shark Films - Ranked (43 movies items)

"Open Water is an unfairly overlooked and bashed film. The reasons for that is quite simple. Some people just don't have the attention for anything. This film is at times absolutely terrifying due to its realistic approach on being stranded out in the middle of the ocean, with sharks lurking under your feet. And it's just not about the sharks. The film greatly manages to capture every psychological aspect, as well as every natural medical illness that might occur when floating in the water for se"

"July 22 "Other people go on vacation and spend their days just laying around. We have a story we're going to be telling for the rest of our lives." This was an interesting movie. It kind of reminded me of Frozen which isn't a bad thing, since I liked this movie a bit more than the other one. It's not a movie I would watch again, but I was glad enough to watch it once."


bharath posted a review 9 months, 1 week ago

“Independent filmmaker Chris Kentis directs the dramatic thriller Open Water, based on a true story. Susan (Blanchard Ryan) and Daniel (Daniel Travis) are a busy married couple on an island vacation. They board a vessel called the Reef Explorer with a group of other scuba divers, traveling 15 miles out to sea. Since they are certified to dive in open waters, the couple breaks off from the group to go exploring. The Reef Explorer accidentally leaves without a proper head count, leaving them stranded in shark-infested waters. Kentis and producer wife Laura Lau did all the filming themselves in the actual ocean without extraneous special effects, while the actors wore special steel-mesh under their wetsuits in the scenes where actual sharks were involved. Open Water was shown at the Sundance F” read more

"In certain spanish countries, this movie was called "Tiburones Muerden Buzos". Which, literally, in english language, translates into "Sharks Bite Divers". Which in shark language probably translates simply into something like "Om Nom Nom". "

“I thought Open Water was horrible! I bought the movie before watching it, once I had watched it, I kicked myself for buying and gave it away. It was definitely not something I would want to watch twice. I am all for shark movies, but they went about this the wrong way.” read more
