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!

But this movie was an exception. So here’s how it went. My family goes out leaving me behind with the two grandsons ages 6 & 2. Two year old passes out early leaving the six year old to party with. We make our popcorn and put Meg in to watch. Me half thinking I won’t get involved in this movie and I’ll be caring for the two year old who will definitely wake up once we start the movie. Didn’t work out that way. Once I started watching I was hooked. The six year old and I watched it twice that night. The actors and actresses were pretty good, the effects, well a little bit not realistic. But that saved me when I told my kids that I let their six year old watch a scary movie. The way they (parents) reacted you would have thought I let their kid drink a can of soda (which I did). The Six year old told his parents the movie wasn’t scary, he never had one nightmare. But then again he attends public school...the scariest place on the planet! Please understand however, it’s not a kid movie.
Warm and fuzzy, juxtaposed against hard action and bloody shark innards spewing about. Good CG!
Run, run from this stupid movie!
What happened tor real film reviews. RT should be working in Russia trying to elect our next president. With ratings so unbelievably inaccurate RT would have me thinking 60 minutes is real reporting. Don’t waste your time or money watching this piece of trash. Even for 49 cents. Just my 2 cents.
Jason Statham makes the movie. Its actually not bad, keeps you interested. And who doesn’t love a shark movie? Worth watching.
I rented this movie, for some reason it wouldn’t let me watch. I downloaded this movie on to my iPad, still won’t let me watch it. Don’t understand why? I’m doing it under WiFi as well so that’s definitely not the problem. I would like to watch this movie or get credit for another one if I’m still not able to watch it before the 30 days..
What we see is science and exploration driven and is worldly, multigenerational, multiracial, multiligual, with a precious, precocious tot, and strong, smart female rolls with the half-naked person in the shower being played by a man (oh, thank you JS!). What's missing are vile, insidious bad guys with guns, massive navies and horrendous patriarchal corporations digging for dollars or fish for zoos. All they are doing is trying to learn and explore. And, once they've made a mistake, they're tyring to correct it. I can't begin to tell you how refreshing that is. This movie has humor, heart, a huge, fantastic, enviable, underwater facility and living quarters (it's on my wish-list now), deep-sea creatures, subs, nods to Jaws, shocks, awes, lots of heartbreak, more hilarity and maybe even an eventual victory. Either way, it's not just people that need to get out of the water.
Let’s just say that it’s not the best movie of the year, but at the same time, it’s not the worst either. It’s decent, it made me laugh here and there.
Not scary but storyline should be a little more interesting but good movie overall
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!
If I could give it zero stars I would after waiting 20 years for this film to come out and being so displeased.
Wicked show! Amazing in 4K and if u have an atmos receiver, crank it up!! One of my favourite Atmos experiences to date. To top things off, the little girl is hilarious
Make it free so you can get a lot of stars like fortnite
Statham makes this work, otherwise not great.
Fans of “Jaws” will get a kick out of the many nods. This is a good bet if you’re wanting to watch some silly action in the Godzilla/Jaws vein. “Pippin! Pippin!”
Terrible writing, resulting in some pretty embarrassing acting, and a storyline visible from miles away. 90 minutes of this would have been way too much...but TWO HOURS? The only plus- the shark effects were great, as was the set design. A decent screenplay would have helped a lot. Most of the actors seem embarrassed to be there, except for the little girl, who doesn't know any better. Save your money or just watch the original JAWS, which contained a story.
The effects were entertaining and the shark was really cool. But the acting....brutal!
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
