A movie with numerous plot holes and very cringe-worthy, unnecessary slow-motion scenes which made me laugh. It took far too long to approach the first gory thrill, the film opens with a predictable backstory, introducing a cliché relationship between two step-sisters.
Uncaged is about four teenage girls (Sophie Nélisse, Corinne Foxx, Brianne Tju and Sistine Stallone) who explore Mayan City. Once they are inside, their rush of excitement turns into terror as they discover the ruins are haunted by sharks.
The screaming fish not only made me cry with laughter, the film showed a total lack of marine life knowledge, sharks are unlikely to be deadly to humans, nor are they scary.
This type of film I would call a 'comedy horror' as Roberts does not even attempt to create any jump scares or intense scenes. As the character development was non-existent it left me with little remorse for these naive characters.
The film was complete with a horribly written dialogue and many many plot holes that will just make you laugh.
