The Meg: Just another shark movie...(Review)

  • The Meg is based on a book by Steven Alten. It follows a group of Marine Biologists who dive down to the Marianas Trench and believe there is more beyond the trench than what is already mapped out. While they are diving, an incident occurs where the team gets trapped and needs to be rescued. As they are rescued, something comes back with them. A Megalodon is released into the world after living in the deepest darkest part of the ocean. It's a whole new world for it and there is a buffet to be eaten!

    The movie goes along okay. It has some good action sequences and a few surprises. There is a lot of predictability as well. The actors work well together but the story seems to lack the actual depth to it. There are some quick moments too that seem like they shouldn't have glanced over them so quickly.

    In my opinion, there are better shark movies out there. This one was good and keeps you entertained but I would refer to other shark movies while I watched this one and by the end, I wanted to watch the other ones more. I recommend waiting for home release or stream for this one. It's not bad to view it on the big screen but still feels more like a home movie versus a theater movie. I did like the characters and overall the very little story they had but felt a lot of moments passed a bit too quick and that there were questions that went unanswered especially after surprises happened. Feel free to leave any comments if you've seen it yourself. Until then, Ugeek On!
