The entire film is claustrophobic, boring and drags on forever. And they both made it out alive in the end which was a testament of their strength. This movie infuriated me with how badly acted and how idiotic the characters were. It's almost as though they had this story about some girls who got trapped underneath a mechanical pool cover, but didn't bother to do any homework about how community pools are run. The person charged with closing the facility would have at least 60 minutes worth of tasks before the place could be shut down and locked up. I'll be watching this again to pick up all the little moments I missed.
People gonna waste their time like me. The elder sister suggested that they both move the grate to smash the pool cover but the younger one throws a tantrum and only gets out of her tantrum when her diabetic sister is drowning, then she decides that it's time to get the grate. Honestly, I don't understand why the high score. The ladies poor childhood does not compensate for the bad acting and superficiality of the story which resembles so many similar movies. I liked the fact that Tobin Bell played a small role in this, despite him not being the main character, but it would've been an all too big cliché considering he's well known for the Saw Franchise! During the finale you will want nothing more than to know the fate of these two sisters, and when you finally do learn it, it is unexpected but satisfying.
Things get even worse when possible help turns around and extorts them. The weight of the entire film is placed on the 2 lead actresses who by mistake are now stuck in the pool with the cover closed on a holiday weekend with no way to get out. I mean Inception scores 8. A cover keeps dust dirt leaves and debris out of the pool to keep maintenance to a minimum. It is one of those films you find yourself yelling at the screen for them to either do this or don't do that. The two actresses were brilliant, their acting was top notch.
Also, the older sister makes such a big deal about having to give her credit card pin to the psycho pool employee and contemplates being left in the pool to die rather than give it, but she only had like 70 dollars or whatever the amount was in her account. To start off, the director Eskandari does a great job directing his limited space. The near suicide had me in tears. I just can't believe they made such an inaccurate movie. This isn't a groundbreaking thriller but sometimes it is nice to witness how effective cinema can be with so little.
Second, I have a sister myself and the way the relationship unravels and develops between them felt honest and truthful. I didn't find a second of it to be boring. It has all the right elements to make it as enthralling with very little action or vfx. At this time, he closes the fiber glass top trapping them in for a long holiday weekend. And the three main characters don't feel one-dimensional, you will actually care and show emotions towards each one. I don't like when people leave reviews telling you not to waste your time on something, as though all people feel the same way they did about things.
Google it, it isn't just me. While struggling to survive, they talk about all their clichéd issues abusive father, drug addiction, petty jealousy, etc. A little bit into the movie a sadistic employee who was arrested in the past enters the place trying to steal things but notices the girls stuck under the cover. Sincerely don't bother watching it. So no unless you want to pay for a Lifetime type movie we don't recommend this at all.
That is when they take in the most revenue. The movie is 81 minutes long, and while this may sound long for such a simple movie with 2 main characters and one setting, it is surprisingly entertaining with a lot of tension and I hardly ever felt the need to fast-forward. It's a little bit slow at the beginning, there are a couple of flaws you never know how long the girls stay in there, the water is supposed to get colder as the movie goes on but towards the end they suddenly don't notice it anymore , and the ending makes you wonder why it took so long to use that method to finally get out, but those are the only negatives and they don't harm the entertainment value too much. The movie just didn't go anywhere that was worth watching. One loses her engagement ring in the pool so both swim down for it. She nearly killed u and Ur sister and you let her ass walk? I had a very hard time watching it to the end.
There is a lot of underlying issues between the sisters, as well as the woman who not only will not help them escape, but taunts them as she is clearly scorned and injured herself. They literally could've made it out right at the start but she only decides to actually do something at the end when her sister is dying. Kao bivši vojni snajperist, Booth ne vjeruje znanosti i znanstvenicima, nazivajući ih parazitima koji sline nad fizičkim dokazima. Like most trapped thrillers it is all about what drama you can get with the barest of bones. Inspired by true events, two sisters become trapped under the fiberglass cover of an Olympic sized public pool during a rushed closing for the holidays. Estranged already, we learn of a bitterness between them stemming from years of opposing paths begun by a tragedy in their youth that haunts them to this day The muted blue tones of the pool help keep some desperation and the dialogue, which is crucial since there is—by extension of the premise—nearly no action, is mostly compelling, though the entire setup edges a little too close to metaphorical. There is a lot of tension and frustration throughout and scenes that make you want to jump up and scream at the antagonist.
But as the credits rolled, it seemed as though the writers just ran out of ideas about how to close it up. It's not like they argued the whole film and came out hating each other. I have the same pen they used that supposedly was to save her from going so low she was going into a coma, it's a novorapid insulin it does the opposite. If you want a slow burn thriller then give it a go. You could've been out there in 20 minutes if you had just listened! I also found the film to be somewhat like saw in a way with the whole appreciate what you have sort of thing thrown in. Because for an 81 minutes, 2 sisters getting trapped in an Olympic sized swimming pool, under fiber glass cover, doesn't justify the run time.
