Here is a movie that I have to say had a marketing campaign that was not anywhere in the small scale. We all knew about the production and the release. My belief that when the marketing is so aggressive there must be something to hide came true when I saw this movie.
The movie is not spectacular it is not amazing, it is memorable and it is just an overly glorified B-movie that you can go through life not watching.

Learned a new word, Megalodon. Which was a type of shark which existed some millions of years ago.
The Meg movie is based on this per-existed creature. This movie is based on a book named Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror by Steve Alten. The movie is not spectacular and it is not so inviting with a long delay for things to happen. To be honest the movie is to me, an expensive B-Movie.

The acting was ok, but the delivery could have been more entertaining. The movie was like a roller coaster one time everything is on the rise with some presumed moment coming up, then other times it just drags.

Here is the plot. During a deep underwater rescue our lead Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham) leaves a man behind. He did this because he believes the rescue was going to end badly with everyone dead instead of one.
Jump some five years ahead a billionaire was sponsoring an exploration into the deep underwater. This simple exploration led to the release of something no one was expecting, a shark. The problem is, the shark is not just any shark it is a Megalodon.

Well, add to this some weird moments of everyone in the movie having some emotional breakdown the movie just kept going high and low. Aware of their issue the Billionaire led his crew to try and stop a Megalodon.

An hour into the movie they thought they had everything under control, when they discovered they had to deal with more than one Megalodon.

Somehow they got out of the water safe, when the Billionaire had a stupid idea that he had enough men and fire power to deal with his problem.
Well using your wealth of movie knowledge you can guess what happened to him and his plan.

The movie is not good and I can only but regret seeing the movie.

The movie is directed by Jon Turteltaub who has had a better career doing good movies than this.
