The Meg (2018)
3 Stars out of 5


The Meg is a check-your-brain-at-the-door flick. It's not meant to be taken seriously and this one definitely shouldn't be. I have issues with it for sure, but overall, it's a fun flick to zone out to if this is something your looking to do. If you've seen one Shark Movie, you've seen them all. Going into The Meg, I was of the mindset that this was going to be some stupid "Godzilla from the deep that attacks beaches" plot and in a way it is....but not in the way I envisioned it. I think the writer was smart enough to actually make this story somewhat plausible in a movie-kinda-way. By that I mean, the writer at least gives us a "logical" way in explaining how a Megalodon could exist in this day and age by having it explained that the Mariana Trench has been housing Megs all this time and that the only thing keeping them at bay is by having it concealed by a thermocline of hydrogen sulfide. Estentially a "Temperature Force field" if you will. Like I said, mindless fun. You know what you're getting, so don't expect much from this. Worth a Rent. Bonus points for how they actually kill the Meg. Very satisfying....and ironic.
