A 75-foot long prehistoric massive shark creature known as the Megalodon, attacks a deep-sea submersible, leaving it disabled and trapping the crew at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean.
With time running out, rescue diver Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham, typecast as the anti-hero and widely known for his thriller-action roles) must save the crew and the ocean itself from an unimaginable threat. I really wasn’t interested in seeing this film, but I am so glad I did because it was action-packed, full of surprises, made me laugh, cry, cover my eyes and scream out loud throughout the film.
The IMAX experience made every notion from ‘The Meg’ so defined I swear I thought I was in the movie. The film took historical facts and stretched them into a 114mins (1hr and 54mins) epic production, “Megalodon, meaning “big tooth”, is an extinct species of shark that lived approximately 23 to 2.6 million years ago, during the Early Miocene to the end of the Pliocene.” The special effects were so life like you would have sworn you were wearing 3D glasses.
Produced by China’s Gravity Pictures, the film cast also includes, Li Bingbing, Rainn Wilson, Ruby Rose, Winston Chao, Cliff Curtis, Page Kennedy, Jessica McNamee, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson Robert Taylor, Shuya Sophia Cai, Masi Oka, Rob Kipa-Williams, and Tawanda Manyimo.
I rate this film as being Mega-riffic, with Mega-Stars, that will bring in Mega-Bucks at the box office, and can foresee it being a Mega-Hit this weekend!
The Meg is scheduled for release in the US and China, Friday, August 10th!
