The Meg (2018)
I've never been compelled to write a review but this was so horrible I felt some responsibility to warn other film goers.
First, I really like Jason Statham. He reminds me a bit of a British Bruce Willis. Good looks but not "classically" Hollywood good looking. Good sense of humor. Fun action star. I normally watch whatever film Jason stars in because I'm almost always guaranteed a good movie experience.
This film was absolute garbage. A SyFy made for TV film is better. After watching 10 minutes I got the distinct impression that China investors wanted to create a "Hollywood" film and also wanted to tick all of the boxes so it would appeal to the China market. Chinese actors. Check. Film story HQ in Shanghai. Check. Appeals to a broad international (AKA China) audience. Check. Has dialog that is sure not to offend anyone so it gets a mild rating. Check. Terrible cheesy dialog that attempts to be funny but is painfully unfunny. Check. Terrible CGI. Check.
Avoid this film at all costs. It's an absolute waste of anyone's time. If the general China audience thinks this is good I feel bad for them.
