A deep-sea submersible—part of an international undersea observation program—has been attacked by a massive creature, previously thought to be extinct, and now lies disabled at the bottom of the deepest trench in the Pacific…with its crew trapped inside. With time running out, expert deep sea rescue diver Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham) is recruited by a visionary Chinese oceanographer (Winston Chao), against the wishes of his daughter Suyin (Li Bingbing), to save the crew—and the ocean itself—from this unstoppable threat: a pre-historic 75-foot-long shark known as the Megalodon. What no one could have imagined is that, years before, Taylor had encountered this same terrifying creature. Now, teamed with Suyin, he must confront his fears and risk his own life to save everyone trapped below…bringing him face to face once more with the greatest and largest predator of all time


Review


Jason Statham (The Mechanic)kicks shark butt in this highly enjoyable if somewhat ridiculous action movie.

Playing out like a cross between Jaws and Jurassic Park director Jon Turteltaub (National Treasure)keeps his tongue firmly in his cheek for the full running time of the movie as he mixes laughs with plenty of gross out moments.

With excellent special effects and a fast paced story The Meg is nothing more than an old fashioned B movie, the only difference being that this is a B movie with a massive budget.

The Meg is an enjoyable piece of hokum entertainment and is best watched with your brain in neutral and it’s certainly not to be taken too seriously.
