COMMENTS: Jonas Taylor has been asked to rescue his ex wife Lori and her crew, who went on a deep sea expedition and discovered a hidden ecosystem 11,000 meters underwater. Their ship gets attacked by a giant 70 ft shark (called a Megalodon) and are trapped inside. Jonas is the only person who has attempted a rescue in such deep waters. Jonas manages to save all but one of Lori's crew, Toshi sacrificed himself so that they can escape. The explosion that took Toshi's life also created a pocket of heat which allows the shark to swim to open water. Realising what they have done, the expedition crew along with Jonas band together to catch and kill the shark before any more people are hurt.

The film contains complex and mature themes of shark attacks, deep sea exploration, rescue missions, teamwork, loss/death, fear, sacrifice and redemption, within and action/thriller/horror context. There is a sense of threat and menace that is sustained through the use of suspense and some elements of horror which can be unsettling, distressing or upsetting for viewers below the age of 16. Viewers aged 16 and older may find the film of entertainment value, particularly lovers of the action/thriller/horror genre.
