The Big Finish

A killer shark attack film can never go wrong. This movie starts off incredibly slow for an action piece but does start to make up for it by the beginning of the second act. It could just be my sick demented side but I do think that The Meg could have went even crazier and ate up a lot more people for my taste. Jason Statham is charismatic as ever and is put in unbelievable sequences to make this film a worthy enough watch. Rain Wilson is also very good in the creepy investor role who does not care about any one elses safety just his own profits. Meiying is also very adorable. So is The Meg just another Jaws rip off? That is the only real question here. I would say this fun-filled biter thriller is an easy watch that has enough of its own identity to be put in its own separate category.
