Five years ago, expert sea diver and Naval Captain Jonas Taylor encountered an unknown danger in the unexplored recesses of the Mariana Trench that forced him to abort his mission and abandon half his crew. Though the tragic incident earned him a dismissal from service, what ultimately cost him his career, his marriage and any semblance of honor was his unsupported and incredulous claims of what caused it - an attack on his vessel by a mammoth, 70-foot sea creature, believed to be extinct for more than a million years. But when a submersible lies sunk and disabled at the bottom of the ocean - carrying his ex-wife among the team onboard - he is the one who gets the call. Whether a shot at redemption or a suicide mission, Jonas must confront his fears and risk his own life and the lives of everyone trapped below on a single question: Could the Carcharodon Megalodon - the largest marine predator that ever existed - still be alive - and on the hunt?Written by
The scene with the giant squid could be an allusion to The Beast, a novel written by Peter Benchley, who also wrote Jaws (1975). See more »
When the Meg chases Jonas and is caught by the cable attached to the ship, it can't reach him as he slowly paddles back underwater. Earlier the Meg easily pulled the entire ship backwards, so it would have no trouble catching Jonas. Even sheer inertia would make sure Jonas was within reach of the monster fish. See more »
Look at the sonar. Let me know what you find.
So far nothing new, my friend. It just keeps getting worse.

The movie ends with the word "Fin", a reference to the title shark in addition to being French for "end." See more »
Dry humor and absurdism all over. It condemns people (like me) who pay and spend time watching this tripe... it condemns materialism, and people who have no quality control (like me)
Watch it so the studio can laugh at you. That is how stupid this film is.
There is one thin feminine woman in the whole thing and she has her child with her!?!? Am I supposed to fall for her??
