What to know

critics consensus

The Meg sets audiences up for a good old-fashioned B-movie creature feature, but lacks the genre thrills -- or the cheesy bite -- to make it worth diving in. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

Previously thought to be extinct, a massive creature attacks a deep-sea submersible, leaving it disabled and trapping the crew at the bottom of the Pacific. With time running out, a visionary oceanographer recruits rescue diver Jonas Taylor to save the crew and the sea itself from an unimaginable threat -- a 75-foot-long prehistoric shark known as the Megalodon.

    It's nice to see a Shark-led Creature Feature that's actually got some money behind it, but The Meg is still really nothing special.

    Don't think about the plot holes, the uneven acting or just how implausible the whole thing is. Just lay the butter on the popcorn and enjoy.

    Jason Statham takes on a Megalodon in the fun and exciting B-movie The Meg. While exploring a trench in the China Sea a group of researchers accidentally release a prehistoric shark known as a megalodon, which then attacks the research station and begins to feed. Statham is in top form, doing some incredible action scenes, and delivering some good comedy bits. And the special effects are quite impressive, though there are a few cheesy CGI shots. Still, the set and creature designs are pretty cool, with a kind of retro sci-fi look. Also, the score does a great job at heightening the suspense and intensity of the shark attacks. Extraordinarily entertaining, The Meg is a thrilling adventure into the darkest reaches if the sea.

    A very basic monster movie that begins fun enough but then quickly overstays its welcome, becoming big and clumsy like a Megalodon while lacking in tension, thrills or anything to hold our attention for more than an hour as things start to get repetitious, lame and purely boring.
