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
At one point, director Turteltaub did ask the question, "Would it be appropriate for The Meg to make a growl or roar?" That opened up the door for Erik Aadahl, Ethan Van der Ryn and Jason Jennings to explore that avenue stating: "The megalodon shouldn't make a growling or roaring sound, but there's a lot that you can do with the sound of water being forced through the mouth or gills, whether you are above or below the water. We explored sounds that the megalodon could be making with its body. We were able to play with sounds that aren't animal sounds but could sound animalistic with the right amount of twisting. For example, if you have the sound of a rock being moved slowly through the mud, and you process that a certain way, you can get a sound that's almost vocal but isn't an animal. It's another type of organic sound that can evoke that idea." See more »
At the beginning of the movie Jonas is working on a rescue in the Philippine Trench when the meg forces them to abandon the rescue midway through. They later run into the shark in the Mariana trench saying it had been stuck down there. These trenches are ~1,200 miles apart so it shouldn't not have been able to get from one to the other.

Look at the sonar. Let me know what you find.
So far nothing new, my friend. It just keeps getting worse.

It's everything you would guess
Look, this movie wasn't bad... but it wasn't great either... Everything that comes with a shark movie was here. A cheesy storyline that bounced around a lot, and some great action sequences wth the shark. Jason Statham was the same as he usually is, stone faced and serious. Rainn Wilson did a great job with his part. But other than that, nothing really sticks out.
