Five years after he lost part of his crew under mysterious circumstances, rescue diver Jonas Taylor aims to save a submersible crew who are trapped in the deeper reaches of the Mariana Trench with a megalodon, a gigantic shark believed to have gone extinct millions of years ago. This suspenseful and entertaining but utterly stupid action adventure offers a little bit of science and a whole lot of fiction. The end result lands somewhere between Jaws, Deep Blue Sea, and Sharknado. The locations and the cast list announce that this is a Chinese-American co-production. The performances vary between decent and awful, the dialogue is just awful throughout. Based on Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror by Steve Alten.
