Five years ago, expert sea diver and Naval Captain Jonas Taylor encountered an unknown danger in the unexplored recesses of the Mariana Trench that forced him to abort his mission and abandon half his crew. Though the tragic incident earned him a dishonorable discharge, what ultimately cost him his career, his marriage and any semblance of honor was his unsupported and incredulous claims of what caused it - an attack on his vessel by a mammoth, 70-foot sea creature, believed to be extinct for more than a million years. But when a submersible lies sunk and disabled at the bottom of the ocean - carrying his ex-wife among the team onboard - he is the one who gets the call. Whether a shot at redemption or a suicide mission, Jonas must confront his fears and risk his own life and the lives of everyone trapped below on a single question: Could the Carcharodon Megalodon - the largest marine predator that ever existed - still be alive ... and on the hunt?Written by
In its early stages of development, the film was touted as a George Clooney vehicle. See more »
It is mentioned that the nuclear submarine rescue attempt was in excess of 10,000 meters depth. The estimated crush depth of contemporary nuclear submarines is approximately 730 meters. Even making allowances for "classified" data on crush depth would leave any submarine well above the 10,000 meters mentioned. Of course, the movie is about a 70 shark from the Marianna Trench...

As someone who really loves the first "MEG" novels I could not wait to see the movie. It was clear to me, that it will be different, and that from the moment on the trailer hit the screens. And I was okay with it and lowered my expectations.
I also love shark movies since "Jaws" (which I saw in theaters, just to say ;)) and I watched all of them since then, besides the Asylum productions...
"THE MEG" could have been a very entertaining and fun watch, despite the differences. And in some parts it was/is. Hell, I was and I am even okay with the cast. But I am totally sure the studio prevented it from all it could have been with its theatrical cut, that just plays it safe and makes the "Movie Meg" just a movie that you won't remember after a few days.
And that is a shame and a waisted opportunity!
I still give it 8 stars because I liked the cast, the music, the effects (they are not half as bad as some here are stating) and yes: I was entertained enough to like it. But I was all set to LOVE it, and that did not happen.
Rough cuts and jumps and way to less of a thrill but more of a loud action vehicle. There are enough successful movies nowadays that show at the box office that they score because studio bosses were risk taking.
So all we got is a popcorn flick above average. At least an original one :)
And hey: that's something in the times of uninspired sequels, prequels and reboots.
