Guys, The Meg is out in theaters. And you bet your ass that I paid to see it in XD at my local Cinemark theater. I’ve been waiting for this film because, based on the trailer and the billboards, it promises to be a good time. And it is.
The Meg stars Jason Statham (because of course it does), Bingbing Li, Rainn Wilson, Ruby Rose, and Cliff Curtis, just to name a few. The premise of the film is that a research team discovers a Megalodon, which is just a fancy word for giant prehistoric shark. Said Megalodon then escapes from his comfy home below the Mariana Trench (that’s right) and, after terrorizing the crew for a little bit, heads to one of the world’s most densely populated beaches. It. Is. Awesome.
The best way I can describe this film is a mix between Deep Blue Sea, Jaws 2, and Jaws 3. It’s honestly just a good time. Its logic is ridiculous. I don’t know that it’s scientifically accurate in any way, but I really don’t care. By the end of the film, Jason Statham is literally fighting one on one with a Megalodon and that’s honestly what I paid to see.
So, if you find yourself with nothing to do this weekend, and just want to have fun, head to your local movie theater. Watch The Meg. Have a good time. Enjoy
