The Meg Film Review. Directed by Jon Turteltaub. Distribution by Warner Bros. Rated PG13 US, Certificate 12 UK. Running time 109 minutes.
The film I feel cheated a lot of people as trailers show a giant shark entering shallow waters to which holiday makers are bathing, you think is gonna be a blood fest of gore to which we don't see. We do however see a very long intro sequence that seems to go on forever explaining the science behind everything, to which most people just wanted to see a giant shark eating and destroying coastlines.
The film isn't that bad though, although more comedy elements were needed as it took itself far too seriously, not like other great shark movies such as Sharknado and Deep Blue Sea, Jason Statham is good, then again he does tend to be reliable in most movies he does, the only difference is he is not kung foo fighting bad guys, but just kicking a giant shark in its face. Yes this movie is completely ridiculous, then again what movie were we expecting, it is a little too long, a bit bogged down in nonsense scientific jargon, not as violent as I hoped, but still an enjoyable romp of a film, that admittedly will be forgotten soon after but still an enjoyable film, with a big ass shark, what more do you want.
