Through painfully honest and emotional moments, the movie becomes irresistibly relatable
The film never slows down or bores, plunging from one harrowing sequence to the next.
There were many redeeming qualities that gave this movie an aura of adrenaline junky's delight. Unfortunately, there were just as many condemning qualities, counteracting the wow-factor exuded by the surprisingly solid CGI. All in all, I will say the best part of the movie was the CGI. By far not the greatest I have ever seen, but still great enough to make the movie worth seeing for the sole purpose of the scene in which Jason Statham rides the Meg out of the water using a knife as a handle and stabbing the massive beast in the eye with a harpoon. On the other hand, however, the acting in most cases was horrendous. Cheesy dialogue perpetuated by clunky, one-demensional dribble; all of this punctuated by possibly the worst performance of the year (aside from the cast of Slender Man), in Bingbing Li. I hate to harp on it but she ruined ABSOLUTELY EVERY SCENE INCLUDING HER. Conclusively, this movie is worth seeing if you have nothing better to do.
The meg was probaly one of the biggest surprises of the year for me just a dumb and entertaining shark film.
It's not easy to create another movie about shark, since we have seen good ones by Steven Spielberg and others. I must give credit to the team who made this film, and it's not living under the shadow of Jaws. It's a different story, and there is some new ideas in it. The CG is quite good, and the movie is entertaining at least. Of course Jason Statham adds some points to it, and Bingbing Li is delightful to look at. It's not perfect, the ending part which happens near a beach doesn't quite make sense. But overall I would say I didn't waste my time buying tickets to watch in the cinema. It was a good 90 mins of entertainment.
Watched this last night at the cinema. Nothing happens for about 45 minutes really and most action in a out the last 10 minutes of the film. All the good bit have been shown in the trailers and apart from a few laughs (Not the ones the have tried to add but at how bad it is) I really could have given it a miss
