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?

Trivia

The movie was considered an early favorite for the Golden Raspberry Awards (also known as the 'Razzies' or 'Anti-Oscars'), including Worst Picture, but was only nominated for Worst Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel. The organization attributed this to an error that may have influenced the voting. Normally, only paying members of the Raspberry Award Foundation can vote for the films to be nominated, but due to a technical glitch, non-paying visitors on the website were also enabled to cast their votes.

Goofs

Owing to the general lack of sunlight at deeper sea levels, the Meg should realistically not be able to see at all as it surfaces, since the greater volume of light up there is much more overwhelming than what it's been accustomed to for millions of years. The book gets this right and has the important reoccurring plot-point that the Meg only surfaces at night because the sunlight hurts its eyes. See more »

It's everything you would guess
9 August 2018 | by austin-65005See all my reviews

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.
