Jason Statham was great as always. The movie was good to see once. But it was boring. Nothing that makes you want to see it again, even when it comes out on dvd.

Too much "dead space"; drawn out; typical set up: man survives tragic event, gets called back to work, meets independent woman, and falls in love with her, saves life over and over

Visual: mix "Deep Blue Sea" with "Jaws" GREAT movie! Got a mixture of every emotion: sadness, laughter, and excitement. Graphics weren't too bad either!

Shld focus more on the story and less on cheesy romance. Jason S is good but supporting casts are trying too hard. Glad I watched it for free thru atom.

I thought it be more believable. Jason statham was awesome but the benefactor sucked from the beginning of the move until he was killed. The only obvious question I have is where the hell was the child care provider for the little girl?

Meh, it’s your average shake movie. If you’re a diver or know anything about the water, you won’t like it.

Took a while to get going. Took itself too serious at times. The whole movie should have been the way the last 15min were

Like director Jon Turteltaub’s underrated National Treasure movies, The Meg has an innate understanding of its own absurdity, and is at its best when it embraces and amplifies that impulse.

Blandly internationalized, generically derivative, drained of any personality, edited as if by computer and bleached of the slightest hint of emotion other than a holiday card-like sympathy for children and allegedly cute animals, The Meg is a one hundred percent inorganic meal, something made from pre-tasted and then regurgitated ingredients.
