About the film
Director: Jon Turteltaub
Actors: Ruby Rose, Jason StathamJason Statham fights a giant prehistoric shark. There's a promising sentence if ever I heard one.
If you like this kind of thing (delightfully dumb, uproarious fun & doesn’t take itself too seriously), The Meg is everything you hoped for and more.
Based on the book Meg: A Novel Of Deep Terror by Steve Alten which came out in 1997, The Meg (loosely) imagines what would happen if a prehistoric creature thought to be extinct, resurfaced because of mankind’s meddling and posed a serious threat to the modern world.
Jason (small, angry man) Statham plays Jonas Taylor, the only man who’s completed a super-deep sea rescue mission and survived. The trouble is, that mission cost the lives of Taylor’s best friends and in the aftermath he’s turned into a washed up alcoholic living by the beach in Thailand who’s done with deep diving. Besides, when he was at the bottom of the ocean he swears there was something down there with him…
This movie is best watched with your mates; grab a couple of beers and escape.

Tick. Tick. Tick.
