Storyline

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 Warner Brothers

Did You Know?

Trivia

Water sequences were filmed in two tanks built in Kumeu, New Zealand. One was relatively shallow but with a large surface area, and contained a high 200-foot greenscreen on one side for water surface shots. The second smaller tank, a deep water tank was circular and covered by a 'blue sky' roof and lined with blue pool liner. "This tank was for underwater action shots, such as when Jonas battles the Meg underwater in the third act of the film," says De Wet. See more »

Goofs

An on-screen caption indicates that the Mana One research facility is 200 miles off the coast of China. It is also built above the Mariana Trench, at the bottom of which is the hidden sea where the meg lives. The Mariana Trench is actually off the coast of Guam in the central Pacific, nearly 3000 miles from mainland China. See more »

Mediocre and Preditable
9 August 2018 | by jeymattSee all my reviews

Jason Statham deserves much better role than this average and predictable movie. The Chinese actors speak English with typical Chinese accents and they need a lot of improvement for their acting skills. The only plus point was the occasional scares from the extinct dinosaur Megalodon which were extremely huge and much better than the great white JAWS but other than that the plot was very predictable.
