The Meg – Film #61

Super Statham or Meg-a Sinker?

It’s Statham vs Shark…the ultimate battle…only one can win…but who will it be?

Jason Statham is no stranger to water…back in 1990 he competed at the Commonwealth Games in Diving for England.

Don’t believe me? Enjoy… https://youtu.be/vWrINMm1aCI

Now you’ve got over the shock of that…imagine him diving into that water and a 60ft shark leaping through the air to take him out…and you have the basic plot for The Meg.

The “Meg” in the title is Megalodon, an extinct species of shark which lived millions of years ago in our seas.

By accident, humans release Meg from the deepest of the darkest parts of the sea and he unleashes watery hell on anything he comes into contact with. Sunken submarines, an underwater research facility, boats, underwater vehicles…nothing is a match for this beast.

Jason Statham (with a weak back story about letting people die previously) is the only man for the job when the deep needs exploring and once Meg is out in the Ocean, it’s only him and his little group who can stop it.

I quite liked the film in all honesty. I actually expected it to be absolute garbage, with a load of comedy thrown at it, but there’s genuinely some strong moments in the film which really takes itself seriously.

Don’t get me wrong, there’s some absolutely insanely stupid scenes which make the eye rolls worth it, but it all comes together pretty well.

It’s not going to be everyone’s cup of tea, but take it as it is, Statham fighting a shark, and you get exactly what you expect from it.
