“The Meg” Could Be the Prehistoric Monster Shark Movie of the Summer
Jason Statham's film swims into theaters next week.
Next week, Jason Statham’s film, The Meg, hits theaters, and it looks like the perfect way to beat the heat this August, reports Maxim.
The prehistoric-shark-battling flick was shown to a few lucky fans this week, and it seems like it is exactly what the audience was looking for.
#TheMeg *is* like JURASSIC PARK and JAWS on steroids. A total, mega-fun crowd-pleasing riot with bite that’s a gargantuan amount of mega-entertaining, mega-intense thrills. An absolute must see with a crowd. @Themeg2018 @MegMovie @wbpictures pic.twitter.com/pLEy2JJHMJ

Jason Statham vs giant prehistoric shark = THE big summer movie you’ve been waiting for. A heart-pounding thrill-ride with stunning visual effects & a big sense of humour. A lot of fun. Had a whale of a time, sorry! #TheMeg @MegMovie #JasonStatham ?? pic.twitter.com/qmyrRdeaeD

Oh I’m allowed to tweet about The Meg now too.
I LOVED The Meg. It is exactly the bonkers, snowball of excess, wild, dumb, fun movie you are hoping for. It knows exactly what it is but is just serious enough to keep you invested. pic.twitter.com/N7ZYqwQ71z

I saw #TheMeg tonight. It featured a massive shark gaining justifiable revenge against dumb dumbs that invaded its home. I am forever pro-shark. And this movie’s a freaking blast. @MegMovie pic.twitter.com/c6IzCbWpyE

Obligatory “I’ve seen #TheMeg and it’s crazy stupid blockbuster fun!!” tweet (sans some intentional soapy melodramatics). Statham vs. Supershark battle does *not* disappoint. Every summer season should have at least one underwater ”Asylum But Better” flick like THE MEG. pic.twitter.com/8ayuTmlRJX

I saw #TheMeg at a screening last night and I can honestly say that I really enjoyed it. It’s legitimately well-executed in its tension and action scenes and it 100% knows what type of movie it is without resorting to dumb Sharknado levels of stupidity. Perfect late summer film.

The film may not be an Oscar contender, but it shows a deep-sea submersible getting attacked by a massive creature that was previously thought to be extinct.
The crew is trapped inside the now disabled ship, which lies at the bottom of the deepest trench in the Pacific. Jason Statham punches the shark to death. That last part isn’t true.
The cast includes Statham, Winston Chao and Li Bingbing.
