Originally we had this movie slated for October of last year - the phantom, family, and FANG event - but unfortunately the time it left theaters and when it came out to DVD just didn’t work for that month so it was replaced with Jaws. Well, let me tell you, this one is SO MUCH better than Jaws.
I loved the science fiction story background - the “sheath” of cold water that keeps the monster in the deepest depths of the ocean only to be released due to the sheer curiosity of scientists. Speaking of the deepest depths of the ocean, the effects used for this in the film were mesmerizing and extremely beautiful - does anyone know if this is pure fiction? Regardless if it is fact or fiction about deep waters, it was still amazing to see on screen. I like the underwater ships they used for their travels and even the underwater station was cool.
The inclusion of the young girl really added to some of the comedic portions of the film, and touches of romance between Stathams and Li’s characters helped the movie progress nicely. I enjoyed all of the film and would both watch it again and want it in my movie collection.
Kudos to the writer on letting that little yappy dog live though.
I’m going to give The Meg a “Loved It.” Now I have the urge to go back at watch 47 Meters Down, which apparently is on Netflix woohoo! (5/5).
