    I've seen the meg when it came out...I've just wanted to see how you reviewed it and I realize you and I have similar spins on the films we've watched. I enjoyed The Meg, it was a fun film and one could tell the filmmakers knew they were not making the Citizen Kane of shark movies. The Meg simply put is a cool little popcorn flick.

    Con Air and the Meg aren't the same. Con Air represents and embodies all the over the top action movies from the 90's .

    This movie was a blast! The CGI for the sharks was really solid and Statham is bad ass. A fun popcorn film.

    Why would you have a Shark movie like this, and make it kid friendly what young PG 13 child wants to watch a movie about a Giant Shark eating and killing people

    Honestly just the pure size of the shark is enough to give me anxiety.

    Adorable? The little girl was probably what I liked least about the movie. They should have just removed her character altogether.

    Just watched it today. Only for Jason Statham. It wasnt that bad to me. It had some funny parts, like when the lab billionaire got eaten by the meg.

    I watched The MEG, and I had really been looking forward to seeing it too.
    The movie started out really well, but then ..........
    Yep, it took a turn towards pure silliness and that ruined it.
    This movie had so much potential too, so its too bad.
    It could have actually been a decent movie if it stuck closer to reality.
    But instead, the shark turns into a serial killer eating everything that crosses its path, and it yet doesn't gain a pound.
    And even after eating an entire whale, it goes looking for more food cause its still hungry.
    Anyways, a potential good movie gone bad.

    • Jömpa

      Did it actually it the whale? I remember biting it in half and leaving it. Also there were two megs. Plus the shark was fucking massive so yeah it could eat a lot.

  • wulfric 910

    The only issue that I have for this movie is it's focusing a lot in the main character Jason Statham
    ( Jonas Taylor ) more than the other characters

  • K1RA
    K1RA 4 months ago

    I actually laughed a lot in this movie, probably to the point I guess people might be thinking if I was crazy. It's a fun movie, but why is it trying to be serious like it was trying to fuse a Taiwan Drama into a Hollywood movie lol. And 2 sharks is like getting 2 shark movies for the price of 1. And the final confrontation omg I really went LMAO, Statham was like, "wtv, fk the plan, even if it is up against the greatest predator ever,I will do it my way like I did in all my other movies, Roarrrr Bang! Slash! Stab! Boom! Yeah man so true, "Man vs meg is not a fight, it;s a slaugher...(Smile) It's Statham slaughering the meg!"

    I just saw it yesterday and it was shittier then I expected.. I knew it would be bad but it was worse then I thought.. Only reason I just wanted to see it cause I'm fascinated by Megalodons and I got tired of gaming hehe.. Either way the characters were completely unrealistic.. Alot of predictable jump scares.. Everything is CGI even though it looks good its just very lazy.. I don't know what to say it's okay for a rental but only like 4 euros.. All in all its just a bad comedy horror attampt,, and the credit scene just slappes you in the face of what you just watched you'll hear what I mean by then ;)

    we all know what this movie will be and thankfully, the movie itself is aware of how silly it is too, it is not pretentious. this is a movie about Jason Statham, fighting a giant shark... is there any review that is even necessary for this kind of movie? but in all seriousness, i had a MEGA fun time watching this movie. the first part with the rescue mission i actually quite like, i like the atmosphere of the setting and i like the characters. if it was suppose to be suspenseful then it most certainly failed though. but after the first act the movie just start to embrace the stupidity in it's nature more and more, with every single dialogue and character choices. and at the end it became such a hilariously stupid movie, but with Jason Statham stealing the show and some very very impressive CGI, it was satisfying. final score for me is a B- .

  • ImJacob
    ImJacob 4 months ago

    I hate how everyone complains about The Meg catering to Chinese audiences. Just enjoy the fucking movie. Stop focusing on that one thing. Honestly, just stop. Saying that just ruins the whole thing. IMO, I loved this movie. It had so much action and I loved it. But like some people, all they focus on is the *CaTeRiNg To ChInEsE aUdIeNcEs* bullshit.

    I just finished watching the movie and I don’t really like it. It’s cheesy and a bit stale to me but the cinematic were pleasing to watch, I just wish corny characters such as the rich guy and the Asian mom didn’t kill the mood (mine to be exact.) In fact, I actually think the GIRL has more character than the mother herself! All in all, the movie. Didn’t really like it, sooooo C+ because of the cinematic that boosted it up.

    I hated that movie, water is habitat to sharks, this movie just proved human superiority over animals(that very very true) but killing a living fossil is a really unethical thing, they simply could have got out of the water.Megalodon was a masterpiece that they destroy.... Disappointed

    Didn't anyone notice that (((Hollywood))) didn't show any morning for the white people that died ? Any time a white person died nobody really cared yet when Toshi and the father of that girl died they showed some morning for their deaths. Except for Statham all white men in the cast were used as Shark fodder.

    I like it, but I think there should’ve been more gore ( so many gore ideas that would look sick ) and maybe help get rid of the sterotypes of sharks so people wouldn’t be as afraid of sharks

    I’m so frustrated that WB did not include a director’s cut, or ANY deleted scenes, in the home release. That alone convinced me not to buy it. The movie itself is good fun, but it’d be nice to see the R-rated version. Make it happen, Warner Bros.

    I'm not a fan of excessive gore, like any gorier than the Saw movies and I am OUT, like if you show me a movie with mortal kombat x levels of gore but on a much more detailed level, then I will just be like "fuck dis shit I'm out!" It's why I'm not a fan of the final destination movies. So I'd say the amount of gore in this movie could be increased, but since this movie is going for a more silly less serious and scary mood, I'd say excessive gore involving intestines and shit pouring out of people would not be very fitting.
