I especially liked it when Jason said "Go ahead make my day." Or was it "Do you feel lucky punk? It's a freaking movie. Not the best not the worst. It entertained you for roughly 2 hours unless you fell asleep. Good thing about movies if you didn't like it DON'T WATCH IT AGAIN!

Man! It would've been less traumatizing to watch "Jaws 3D" than this crap. Just pure s**t, no other way to put it. Th acting was beyond bad, the effects were 3rd grade at best, it was full of dumb cliches, etc...The only good acting was Jason's abs. Gratuitous eye-candy, yeah, but I'll take it compared to the rest. The one-liner dialogue, yeah that was bad too. And Bingbing Li, poor girl, she can't act for s**t. She's far from being Western ready. In all, this was a tedious watch, that was a waste of my time. smiley smiley smiley

New Eco system? i never saw anything "new" they were all the basic sea creatures we already know of.. at least make some up like alien-looking type, i mean i even saw an angler fish. lol
Never lived up to its hype but was a fun watch, some good action and always great to see idiots get killed or eaten. lol

If it wasn't for the cute kid and Jason it would have been a total waste of time but thankfully it wasn't. smiley smiley smiley smiley smiley

Yet another over-rated and over-hyped film that was disappointing to say the least. I watched this with my husband and we are both huge fans of shark films but this was not at all what we were expecting. In fact, we enjoyed Sharknado films a lot more than The Meg because at least with Sharknado , you get what is expected from the film. This should have been put in the comedy genre alongside it's "Action / Horror / Sci-Fi" with the ridiculous actor's and their comedic backdrop that ruined it. This should have been a more serious film, more intense and more focus on the actual creature instead of all the useless drama and drawn out dialogue. If you're bored and have absolutely nothing to watch or you need something to fall asleep to, then The Meg is the perfect film to fill that void. It's not a film that I would recommend NOT to watch as it's a one time watch but it's also not something I would recommend to watch. It's not even worth a rating but I will give it a generous 2.3/5 stars either way. ...

Jason Statham makes any movie better, and this one needed his help. It wasn't BAD...I liked it. But it wasn't JAWS, either. Still, it was a lot better than most shark movies that i've seen. They had some nice toys to play with. The script, and dialogue could have been better. I really didn't care who lived or died. I wasn't invested. I was just watching to see what happened next, to who. I missed about ten minutes of it building a sandwich. There wasn't much background on Statham's character, or on the shark for that matter. They just ASSUMED that we knew everything there was to know about prehistoric animals. The visuals were good, the ocean is always beautiful...and it passed some time. 7/10

i like discovering futur adult actors and Shuya Sophia Cai (she's only 10YO)is one of this kind,not bad at all for a first role,the way she says "There's a monster outside, and it's watching us" is quite something in the intonation
yes because the meg is a killing machine,no more,but i refind the jason of the carreer begining you know the guy ritchie era full of "having fun playing a role" in a movie where is a monster who don't exist,look how is act in the begining for ex,for sure the meg is not the flix of the century but is honestlly does the job of entertaining

Jaws on steroids, but very much lacking the suspense of that movie. I found the whole thing very predictable and lacking in credibility and the script leaving plenty to be desired. On the plus side, the effects are pretty good and the movie as a whole is quite entertaining if you are not looking to take it too seriously. I'd give it 3/5, if only for the entertainment value.

I’m getting used to these Chinese American films now and they are pretty formulaic
Skyscraper was another
The special effects looked very digital and Jason was just being Jason but underwater.
I would say it was so so and give it 3/5 but I really was hoping that more people got eaten and gruesomely

The original Jaws movie created more of an impact than this one. This is just another shark film, but it was decent enough. One thing I do like with the American/Chinese blended films is that there is no foul language which is nice for a change. This film proves that you don't need a lot of cursing to elicit an emotional reaction from the audience.

Ok, well it wasn't bad.. Kinda like Jaws and Abyss mixed all in together. But it was good enough to keep me watching. I think Jason should stick with mob action films if he wants his career to continue in success. You will enjoy the movie, it's a great time waster if you have the time.

@Smilla Sharknado movies are some of the worst movies in cinematic history. 😂 Please don't confuse the two. This movie is far better than Sharknado could ever dream of being and should never be put in the same sentence. 😂😂 I'd rather pick my eyes out as well than to sit through any of those movies too. They're just awful. Meg didn't give me the feeling that Jaws did back in the day, but it's still a good movie in my opinion. Don't let that garbage deter you from checking this one out. You might like it, then àgain you might not, but I can promise you this... It's 1000 times better than any of the Sharknado movie combined. So if you haven't plucked both your eyes out just yet, check this one out. 💜👍

GREAT MOVIE: But also... ]A Quick Empress Story Time: So, I knew I was going to the beach with my sis and nephews, so I held off on watching this but my uncle and aunt saw it before me and teased me about it. I will say, I'm super glad I waited until after I went to the beach to check this out. I swarm pretty far out into the water and thanks to my uncle telling me to "watch out for the meg", I'm in brackish water and can't see, I got paranoid as hell and felt like something was in the water around me for no reason. Can't see through brackish water! Made for a funny scene of me panicing to get back to shore.[ I really enjoyed this film, reminded me of the first time I watched Jaws on my aunts VCR, yeah... I was alive during the time of Blockbuster! PS: I was always kind to rewind.

Finally watched this at the cinema 2 hours ago in 3D, and Wow loved all the moment from beginning to the end, great to see the New Zealand Actor "Cliff Curtis" still staying strong and also my favourite actor Jason Statham. For those that says the movie is boring i guess cause there mind wasn't set on the film but on a different place. At the end of the film I wanted to see the Male Megladon appear for part 2 but it never showed. 8/10

We finally watched this one tonight! I was worried about the links not being clear for the underwater shots but the ones up now are good. I thought this was great as an action-adventure summer flick. I did pull my feet up on the couch several times during the almost getting eaten by the shark scenes. I loved the little girl in the movie, she really was cute. I did think the ending got a little outrageous but I was expecting it to so that part was fine. I am so very very glad [SPOILER] smiley

Years ago,Capt. Jonah comes back from an ocean storm,ship wrecked,w/the redicuclous tale of being rescued by very sexy mermaids.--and he says their home is THE BURMUDA TRIANGLE. --tah-dah!Obviously, no one believes him,except they saw Tom Hanks in "Splash"so they head to the Triangle to find that gorgeous blonde Hanks eloped with.

When they are cruising in the Triangle,suddenly a mammoth hand and arm-covered with barnacles(and band-aids)thrusts out of the water,grasps their ship's prow,and drags it deep under the water--dragging most of the ship's crew with it.OH MY GOD!AAAAAGH! smiley

MIRACULOUSLY,while the ship is dragged deep under,down,down,none of the crewmen is drowned,little GILLS start to grow,quickly,on the sides of their throats.--and amazingly,they can breathe--and they & their flooded ship reach a deep.seaweed-covered grotto,inhabited by very pretty mermaids--who demand to marry all the crewmen--which the men,enchanted by the gorgeous green fishies,do do--rather,they all marry en masse,by a merman German Reform Lutheran minister(who got lost on the way to China)and are so mezmerized by the sparkling greenish mermaids, they miss their Mermaid-step mothers,hiding in the dark seaweed grove.

What can I say about this movie, it stretches credibility to the maximum, the acting is pretty amateur, it has woefully corny one liners, but for all that it's actually watchable although I wont be putting it on my must watch again list.

THIS movie would appeal to people for whom:"jaws"WAS NOT BIG ENOUGH" smiley .Because the Megladon shark,from prehistorric age,rivals giant squid of historical repute.(Yes,those monster squid of tales were real.)If the only thing you can think of,that is big ,is a giant whale,this thing eats whales for breakfast.THE SHEER SIZE makes the story of finding bigger and bigger prehistoric sharks,scarier more and more.Good spec.effects,espec.the shark. smiley

And this is the 2nd China-Hollywood-collaboration w/both Chinese and White good looking actors,who kinda like their racial opposites."A Great Wall"also suggested this.--For sure.(Could "racial-co-laboration be far away?A rich white person falls in love,marries a rich Asian person--and they have rich cute little KIDS.Hmm!WOULD Buddha approve? smiley

Thrills a minute, we Jaws-nervous folk thought this VERY SCARY.--EVEN MORE cause you couldn't see it all in the deep water.This Meglodon eats little yellow ocean subs for lunch.YOWW!Very scary to we shark-scared people. ...

Good movie.
No masterpiece, but I was seldom chewing on my tongue in frustration at how ludicrous it all was.
Suspending belief is always a part of watching this type of movie. If you can't do that probably best to avoid.
Story was engaging, acting was good and overall a fun way to spend some time.
Easy 7/10.

A bit wary of shark based films but i must say i actually thought it was very enjoyable and not once did i think "well thats enough of that". Sat all the way thru and enjoyed every minute. Pretty well scripted as far as i am concerned, acting was cool - no careers ruined there. 8/10 from me.

This was`nt too bad. Story was Good, but ruined by the worst acting you`ve seen all year. Scenarios that are predictable and are almost hilarious. The only saving grace this has are the effects. Which sorry to say are not very well done at all. Somebody got drunk and fiddled with the `CGI` machine. Can`t compare this to `Jaws`, because that was the best!! If not for the special effects this could`ve been considered a Disney movie. Somebody get Jason Statham a razor. The homeless bum look of not shaving, went out a year and a half ago. 2/5. smiley smiley smiley smiley smiley

I'm going to try like TRY to be nice about this. This was a real downer. Thankfully I didn't pay to watch utter BS. Thanks to this site, linkers..etc. The entire time I was SMH going for real? They paid people to attempt to act in this poop next level of sharknado show? I better just stick with HBO series or netflix. Man, what a crappy movie. No fun popcorn level like rotten tomatoes does. This gets one old maid that broke my tooth. I was happy when it was over with.

I expected this to be different and not so predictable. I wanted more underwater footage, but it's mainly a shark hunt for a prehistoric shark by amateur professionals that are second-guessable, from an at water level perspective. That's just my opinion. Many people completely enjoyed it, I'm just not one of them and my reasons are already stated. Nevertheless, watch it and decide for yourself.

It did not disappoint,without giving anything away, there were a few surprises thrown in as well. Also won $50, one of my friends bet me $50 that Raiin Wilson, was Jack Black, and we argued all thru the movie lol... I will definately, watch (or buy) the DVD when it is out...

This was an enjoyable movie, and I'm sure this will sound weird, but it wasn't sharky enough for me, or scary enough. I was really hoping it would have the Jaws scare factor, but it was more of a few steps up from a syfi movie. A little disappointing, but still liked it.
