A deep-sea submersible filled with an international research crew lies disabled at the bottom of the Pacific after having been attacked by a massive shark previously thought to be extinct. With time running out, expert deep sea rescue diver Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham) is recruited by a visionary Chinese oceanographer (Winston Chao) 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 he must 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!

My first megalodon movie ever
Such a good movie full of action and jump scares
For the first time in a while we have a good shark movie since Deep Blue Sea and Jaws.
Not the best movie wise but the hot chinese girl makes up for it.
I have never seen a movie more mediocre in my life. It wasn’t necessarily good or bad, it was just “a movie.” I have no other way to describe it than that. The plot and acting was okay, not necessarily bad. I did rate it 4 stars instead of 3 because I personally enjoyed the theme of Megalodons, there were some familiar faces in there like Ruby Rose and Rainn Wilson, and a personal connection to it. Overall I’d recommend watching it. I think the CGI was pretty good, don’t watch it if you’re looking for an unpredictable plot though. SPOILERS: Rainn Wilson’s death was completely unnecessary and definitely made the movie worse. The only reason he died was to satisfy the audience but in reality it was cheap and took any sort of realism away from the movie. I think it would’ve been far more interesting if they kept Rainn alive, which could cause the audiences sympathy to the protagonists because not only are they fighting a monster but they’re also fighting a corporate billionaire.
This movie was a waste of time and money!!!!!
I stopped about half way into the movie and just stared into the darkness at 30,000 feet.
First, this is definitely not a serious movie, but it was fairly enjoyable to watch. As long as you don't think it's going to be a major thriller, you won't be disappointed in the end.
It's kind of exactly what you'd expect. It falls directly in between being generally terrible and oddly enjoyable – if you enjoy the ridiculousness of b-movies. Definitely not original, there's so many shark movies it would be nice to see something else.
on voit, souligner en rouge, les investisseurs chinois contrôler ce film insipide. Oubliez le Meg, regardez Jaws qui est nettement mieux malgré les années qui passent.
The acting is bad ,so much over acting Jason Statham again is super nobe hero just wanted to end .
It is a very good movie
Super well done!!!
Spoiler alert for a lot of the move follows.... did I hate this film? Swim with me to find out just some of the many problems.... “You might be an SOB but you’re no coward”....? The guy swam a few hundred meters to fire a tracker into a tail fin. A billionaire is sitting right there and owns at least one helicopter. If the shark is going to stay at the surface that long.... FLY! And then he makes a call to rescue them.... with a....... just guess. “I’m going to try to hit it in the eye”....? It’s mouth is WIDE open and you are in it.... you can’t see its eye. “Get back to the ship.... it’s not safe for you”.... or anyone else to watch this movie.... alone! A doctor who has has anger issues (big surprise) and who can’t do CPR. That’s why there are nurses to save the day. But where was this casting call? And the doctor also does not know where the Liver is located. Now that gives rise to check some credentials. The lead has a death wish. Normally I’d say the bravery and cowardless actions of JS were just how I would like to be and live. Jump in the water twice? There would be a brown streak behind me. I give him credit..... if he can swim that well with a full tracking gun on his back, he is aquaman. But as we all know... “Aquaman sucks”. (BBT quote). Nemo song also noted as quite humorous! “Thanks for saving our arses”...? Not an exact quote. But he did. Then depth charges? Is this my grandpa fishing from the old country? Big fish chunks? We killed a whale? Rainn Wilson is always the same character.... Star Trek.... etc. He should have stayed at the office for this movie.... he does as well as you expect and looks like he owns a beet farm by the end of this film. Sadly the best scene? The beach. It’s what you are expecting and become a bit fratricidal waiting for it... naw that’s not right. Just thuggish. But watch for the bubble guy. What you hope happens actually happens. And although you sadisticly hope popsicle boy has something.... no lessons are learned here. But explosions that close to a sub..... you tell me what you think should have happened. And why all the helicopters out when they don’t need them? “It’s not about the people you loose, it’s about the people you save..... and I’m going to make it bleed”..... and find an eye socket finally.... the easy way.... good grief... then get my hand cut off by putting it into a sub prop. A dog is saved, a wedding continues, the hope of something more is hinted or tempted (?) at the “fin” of the movie. Language on the version I saw was ok by today’s standards for families. The violence is appropriately scary and you might even jump once or twice. I hate to say it, despite the fact that I mock this movie incessantly, you will, at the end, think that it was almost a fun romp or at at least not totally hate it. And unlike when I first saw Jaws, I will jump in the lake at the cottage. I hate sharks.... named Bruce.
Their needs to be a second one And this one needs to be free
Waste of my money to rent this. Started watching it one night and I passed out somewhere in the middle of it because I was so bored. Woke up the next day and tried to go back to where I kind of remembered falling asleep at. Still found the movie to be boring and predictable the next day. I recommend saving your money and staying away.
With a terrible ending.
Good actors, Bad acting. Obviously catering to Chinese market. Although I felt for the whales, was rooting for the shark to finish off all the people to wrap up the movie. Please do not make Meg 2!
I love watching this movie. It isn't oscar worthy, but it sure is entertaining :)
i felt sorry for the sharks!
One star for anyone able to endure this movie. The other for JS’ permanent 5-o’clock shadow. Don’t go in with high hopes and you won’t be disappointed.
This movie should be called the MUG - that is what you are if you pay to watch this garbage. I cannot believe that Jason Statham has sunk to this low level - worse than third rate.
Great concept but terrible script and poor acting lets down this production.
I’m sorry, but when you make a giant shark movie, you’ve GOT TO show the shark. I understand that plot and characters are necessary, but you can totally include those things AND a giant shark, they’re not mutually exclusive. On a related note, my daughter calls this movie, The Metaphor. But on a serious note. This movie had all the right elements, okay actors and setting and premise, what it needed was a different screenwriter and director to do the idea justice and make it fun. It felt like the writer and director didn’t really understand what was required from a movie like this.
Great action effects +1 Boring storyline -1 Chinese actors pretensious acting -1 Also, what I don't like about this movie is the central idea. These people's missions have no noble cause. It's all about satisfying humans selfish ambitions. It is human who made the first mistake by entering meg's territory, and it's completely unnecessary to kill so many of them.
If only all movies were as good as this.
..for them and for you. The depths they went to were as shallow as the storyline. Save your time and money by avoiding this movie.
This is not Jaws, but it’s still a great blockbuster movie. Jason Statham is great as always, the special effects are amazing and the shark is massive! I recommend it!
so I’ve seen The Meg movie and must say it was good and fun movie, the CGI on the shark was ok and story not bad but,, and here it come!!! plz plz plz stop putting children in movies like this, I mean she could not act and I must say a pain!!! all in all the movie was great, so if there’s going to be more then stick to the book and make it R rating!!!! then maybe will have a Shark movie as good to stand along side Jaws but until then, Jaws will always be at the top.....
Thoroughly enjoyed this
This film is 💯%. Brilliant better than all the Jaws movies better than deep blue sea can’t wait buy it from jo & made me jump even my friend he jump. He dont watch films usually don’t watch stuff like this made him jump 😀 I can’t wait to buy it
They had a good movie and director so .... what happened ? Cheese zeee ! Annoyed
Need I say more!
Scientists meddling in things they don’t know much about always leads to people dying and some innocent puppy swimming frantically for its life. Not a bad future cult classic. A little adult humour thrown in for good measure. Survival horror at its best.
Is what it is, was ok
