Just remember you're not watching Shakespeare, and you'll have a great time. Statham is always great, FX were spot on IMHO, liked concept and story. My only 'niggle' was this constant and obvious pandering to the Chinese market, not for narrative purposes but for money. Skyscraper was the same, loved the film but too much of an obvious attempt was made to grab the Chinese market, tone it down a bit Hollywood! Anyway, ignore the haters, view it for what it is and have a great time - I did! nobody paid me for this review incidentally
Simple Summer Fun (by iamjasonlane)
If you're expecting an Oscar contender, look elsewhere. If you want to smile for 2 hours, proceed.The Meg is awesome summer popcorn fun! The science is rubbish, but you had to know that going in, right? It's a shark monster movie. Not realistic like The Shallows, or Jaws, but perfectly good in its own right.This movie is fun. There's humor. There's suspense. There's a bit of tragedy. But overall, you don't get terribly invested, and that's ok! Not every single move has to be so serious.The Meg does a wonderful job of not taking itself too seriously, and a lot of <more>
you overbearing critics would be wise to take a leaf out of The Meg's book.
Megalodon eats JAWS! A Cryptid Approach to the Megalodon Legend (by hilaryswank2011)
Hollywood and the other countries made thousands of famous or unknown shark films in film history. Film history is total film production and distribution activities of human kind since 1893. Shark films are also made in both Western and Eastern countries. Shark film master pieces we are familiar with are JAWS Dir.Steven Spielberg, 1975 and Deep Blue Sea Dir. Renny Harlin, 1999 However, no films could exceed JAWS franchise 1975-1987 without The Meg 2018 . What kinds of sharks successful filmmakers selected as film characters in their Shark film master pieces? For instance, Spielberg <more>
chose the great white shark as its dramatic device in JAWS 1975 , a realistic approach, then Renny Harlin created genetically engineered short fin mako sharks as its killing machines in Deep Blue Sea 1999 , a science fiction approach after Jurassic Park 1990 released. And in The Meg 2018 , Dir. Jon Turteltaub took legendary mega shark Megalodon Carcharocles megalodon which lived in 23 to 2.6 million years ago as its eating machine in the blockbuster which starring action star Jason Statham played Jonas Taylor , it is a biological fiction. In this film, Megalodon accidentally appears without any cause and explanation. We can also say it like encounter with unknown creature, such as the Loch Ness Monster and Yeti. It is a cryptid approach to the shark. Main feature of a good shark film is neither the shark itself, nor quality of being a slasher film, but it is a human conflict, a drama between protagonist and antagonist. In JAWS 1975 which costed $9 millions and grossed $471 milliions, we were mostly impressed with Chief Brody played by Roy Scheider who fights for saving Amity beach landers from shark-like Mayor Larry Vaughn who is politically blind to shark attack and its devastating damage to the island. JAWS is the best of the bests among all shark films and genre films in the world. Although Megalodon can eat JAWS as a great white, however its Megalodon story can not eat JAWS. In The Meg 2018 , Tyler and its crew manage to attract Megalodon and scratch it to let other sharks to eat Megalodon. Jason Statham saves Chinese coastal beachgoers from Megalodon. This is the entire story. The Meg 2018 's plot mistake is that Megarodon did not even live in Chinese sea and it was not found in Chinese territories at present. On the contrary, many ancient Japanese legends relate Megalodon. Ancient Japanese people thought fossils of parts of Megalodon as parts e.g. tooth of Tengu, a Shinto-related fictional creature. Chinese history is seemed to be 2,000 to 5,000 year long, however, Japan and Megalodon has had 23 million years of historical relationship. I think Megalodon should attack Japanese coast beachgoers. It is more persuasive than attacking Chinese coastal beach where Megalodon did not even live in 23 to 2.6 million years ago. Anyway, it is a quality work and the Megalodon is actually larger than JAWS! Beside this, the other major defect of this film is that there is no bad guy, only we can see is the eating machine, The Meg...This could be the fatal mistake. Talk about co-production between US and China G2 , Independence Day: Resurgence 2016 was a terrible disaster as a less known US-China coproduction film, however The Meg 2018 is actually a better co-production between China and US like Geostorm 2017 . I sincerely recommend and enjoy the film. In this era, new and a big challenge must be made in international sphere, not in one country. International co-production within one or several regions must create new fields and varieties of filmmaking. Filmmaking in One Country is the 20th.century's nationalistic old-fashioned mode of film concept. Traditions of different countries should be more deeply interacted with each other and more synthesised.Kiyoshi Kurosawa depicted that larger fish eats smaller one. However, I can say that look at The Meg! Even the largest fish can be eaten by a bunch of smaller fishes like this.We should not stick to the dogmatism of food chain.
Better than Jurrasic World, Meg Breathes new life into the Shark genre! (by christianatkins-1)
Just saw the movie with my 10 year old for a sneak peak and it didn't disappoint. Having read the books in 10th grade Marine Biology 20 years ago, my expectations were guarded as I knew it would stray from the science to focus on the laughs and action, and I had been anticipating a movie more in line with Piranha then Jaws, but I am pleased to report my daughter and I left with smiles on our faces and anxious to see it again, hopefully in 3D next. It's fast pace storyline makes the two hour run time fly bye, and the movie is one of the few to find the perfect balance between comedy <more>
and scares. The latter half of the movie even throws a few Jaws references in for good measure appeasing the nostalgic fans. It doesn't waste too much time into delving into silly sub-plots trying to be more than it is with political undertones like the recent Jurrasic series have but keeps a dynamic enough cast to appeal to just about anyone. The movie doesnt try to hide what it is, but rather embraces the absurdity of the premise and goes full throttle to becoming the summers most satisfying, if not most surprising, big scale movies in recent memory. Lots of toungue in cheek humor for the fan boys and great special effects, only thing Id wish they did was not hold back on the gore as much, though considering the nature of the target audience this can be forgiven. Hopefully sequels don't follow the overboard campiness of other surprise hits like Piranha 3D or settle for low budget fodder like Sharknado, the story line leaves a lot of room for exploration of the mythos and source material. Meg leaves the audience wanting to chomp back for more, hopefully its not a long wait for the sequel!
This film is a shark movie, plain and simple. Anyone walking into the theater expecting to see the new Jaws is missing the point. Jaws was iconic in its own time and is an incredible feat of hard work, there's no denying that. But it is also a movie about a shark. The Meg isn't trying to hide from the fact that it's a shark movie, and it doesn't take itself too seriously. It knows what it is and it embraces it, but it also alters it for a new audience who didn't see themselves reflected in Jaws and needs that in a film in order to feel connected. It also turned some <more>
overused and expected movie tropes on their head and it didn't feel forced to me, although I could see how some might say so. Rather, I interpreted it as "we know what you think is going to happen, we know you're waiting for it, but we won't do it because we know you're expecting it." It also addresses some things about sharks that I felt were worth addressing in other films but were not. The science felt almost plausible, I'm sure people have considered the science behind the film to potentially be something worth exploring. Aside from the plot itself which I've already discussed, this is the first time I've seen Jason Statham in a film and didn't actively root against him. His character was a little more witty than usual, but still felt familiar. The side character were less fleshed out but had more feeling to them and although Stathams character was not incredibly deep, he had the ability to save the others and it connected me to the character. It's unclear whether it was meant to be set up this way, but as each character is a hero in their own way at some point during the film, I would say yes it was intentional. Additionally, I was relieved to find that it wasn't uncomfortable to take my younger sibling to see the film, as there were no sexual situations, which are often added to action movies to draw eyeballs. It was a nice change.
I am not a big Statham fan, wife dragged our family see this. My family was pleasantly surprised at how well thought out this movie was. Pretty believable plot compared to most movies now. Most of the time people were not being completely stupid. Cast was great. Pretty much a jaws type film, with updated technology, plot and of course a bigger shark.
That happens when studios interfere to much (by Silberfalke)
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 <more>
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.
More entertaining than I thought it would be!! (by snake-96615)
Ignore the silly haters who have lost all reasoning and perception when watching movies nowadays! The trailer does not do this movie justice. Excellent CGI got the most part, especially the shark. A serious tone, likable characters especially the little girl that you actually want to see survive and great pacing make this a great giant monster thriller in a year full of great ones. Only Pacific Rim faltered. Added bonus are two jaw dropping scenes when the shark jumps out of the water. Do not miss. I also recommend the 5 books in the series which are all equally excellent!!
