About this Film

The Meg

ODEON says...
Five years after being discharged from the navy, Jonas Taylor is called back into action to rescue a team of scientists from 'The Meg': a 70-foot prehistoric shark. 

Their submersible is trapped, and the largest marine predator that ever existed is outside it. Jonas is uniquely qualified to try and fight it, having encountered it years ago. Nobody believed him then - but now he's the only one who can stop it.  

'The Meg' sees the great Jason Statham fight a giant shark. What more could you possibly want?

Waste of time

Reviewer: blahblahblahDate: 2018-08-15

Terrible at best. Wooden acting, predictable and too many nods to the masterpiece that is the original Jaws.

Great B movie!

Reviewer: FunkymonkDate: 2018-08-15

After seeing the mixed reviews I went in with little expectation but it was actually quite good. It's knowingly tongue in cheek without being too silly or over the top. It's entertaining as long as you don't take it too seriously.

The storyline is hardly new. However the film is not bad. The leading characters bond well, and JS does not take himself too seriously. It is not an epic but as I say - it is watchable

Twists and turns

Reviewer: charles0207Date: 2018-08-12

Engaging from the start as an underwater adventure. Becomes a monster movie when the chomping starts. Then high drama with the shark and twists and turns to a heart-warming end. US-Chinese co-production with some subtitled Chinese dialogue.
