Meg - Prehistoric-Shark Tale Starring Jason Statham

How is this not a made for TV syfy movie?

Warner Bros’ horror-adventure film about a huge shark from another time that wreaks havoc off the coast of present-day China. Wilson will play Jack Morris, a tech billionaire who funds an underwater observation program that unwittingly unleashes the Carcharodon megalodon – a 70-foot, 40-ton prehistoric cousin of the great white.

1) the megalodon got up to 59 feet, not 70 like the movie is doing
2) it's not *that* big...

I guess it looks bigger in this one, especially compared to the Orca

Saw this over the weekend... set aside all reality and science and you'll enjoy this thrill ride. Granted this is a prehistoric sea creature who is supposed to keep getting bigger, I guess... but it seemed to me the Megladon kept changing in size. One point in the movie, a character gets stabbed by a screwdriver just below the stomach on the left side. When checked on in the med bay, the doctor says that they will be alright, it just missed the liver. Say what? Doctor, you know the liver is on the right side below the lungs... right? Anyway, this movie has enough thrills and chills to keep you interested. If you want to see a decent shark movie that is a step or two above Syfy production... feel free, you'll have some fun. If you are going to the theater expecting a masterpiece like Jaws... skip it.

I'll see this some Friday morning I hope. I thought the shark was changing size rapidly in the trailer so that criticism doesn't surprise me.

Is any part of this movie scary?!?!

Lazy Sunday watching this since I feel sick.

First 15 mins. Why do they need to send a manned sub to prove the trench bottom is a false bottom? Just send the water drone.

I went into this movie with very low expectations. I wanted something just exciting enough to keep me from falling asleep on the couch. In that way, the movie delivered.

Jason Stathom is a super hero, just the The Rock is in Skyscraper. I can't help but compare these two movies and when I do I think I give Meg the slight edge because it at least tries to be funny at times. Skyscraper offered no laughs, but Meg had characters who tried to be funny.

I could point out all the dumb things with this movie, like why does the entire cast need to be on the little boat when they are computer engineers. They serve no purpose in the field. But I won't, I'll just say how awesome it was when Jason fought the shark with his bare hands and stabbed it in the eye while shooting 60 feet into the air.

Can't believe the Meg never took out a helicopter. Can't believe how people aren't constantly terrified being in that boat in the middle of the ocean when you have proof that the shark is capable of destroying boats.

I watched Skyscraper and the Meg almost back to back and would completely agree with you on everything. I thought parts of the Meg were pretty funny, but obviously not enough to remember anything about it. All i know is that the only thing that can cut more than Statham's abs is the sexual tension between Statham and that girls mom.

If I was a gay man, I would pick Stathom over the Rock. The Rock is just too large of a man, Stathom is ripped and cuddly.
