Reviews:

“Through a combination of the intelligent format, convincing effects, and a series of fun set-pieces (each with a solid payoff), Cage Dive manages to elevate itself above the sum of its parts, and ends up being one of the best found-footage films of the year.” Elijah Taylor, Fangoria

“The fact that there are plenty of well-shot and genuinely thrilling great white attacks should satisfy the large majority and, although the central three themselves are far from ever being particularly likeable, their fears and pleas for survival consistently feel authentic enough to buy into.” Ben Robins, The National Student

” …the character establishing stuff is repetitive, and just knowing about these people doesn’t make us like or empathise with them (quite the reverse, actually) […] But once in the water, as the secrets come out and the survivors turn on each other while sharks seem to play with them like cats with mice, it turns suitably nerve-wracking.” The Kim Newman Web Site

Trivia:

The film’s working title was Under the Deep.
