The Meg (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The Meg is kinda everything you’d expect from a Jason Statham Vs a bloody great Shark movie.  Okay… so the script needed more work and not all the acting lands even for a film of this ilk BUT everyone here knows the film they are making and give it their all on screen.  And it’s fun.  A lot of fun.  It’s also the film The Asylum (Sharknado and almost every Sharksomething Vs SomethingSomething) WISH they could afford to make.  Statham is great, the shark fully believable and the tongue firmly placed in cheek.  Well worth a trip to the cinema.

Best Bit: The dog.

Cinema, Stream, Avoid: Cinema

If You Liked this Try: Snakes On a Plane, Piranha 3D, Jaws, Sharknado 


7 out of 10 stars
