Yeah, I know it will be outright retarded, but I am such a Stat fan and Shark Movie fan, so I will go see this in the Cinema if it plays here.

The first half of the trailer(s) had me real excited with the underwater stuff... then it turned into the usual CGI looking CGI festival with CGI and then some more CGI that looks very much like CGI, and CGI Cg...

Man, why can't they make those monster movies where the creature lurks in the shadows and we only get to see it for 25 second at the end anymore...?

Hmmmm, PG13.

I want to see the Stat kick Shark ass with all the blood and guts of his usual shlock fests. I'll wait for it to stream somewhere. How about, Crank 3 : The Meg.

That's awesome. I'm hoping for Crank 4: Mars Attacks!

So, I just returned from the cinema.

The Meg was barely ok. Its main issue was that it couldn't find a tone and stick with it. It switched from camp/tongue in cheek to straight and back several times. And Jason Statham was sometimes his usual self, and sometimes a toned down version of himself.

The story was cliché just like expected, and all the characters were stereotypes, but the Shark was very good looking, and the film felt very well made effects-wise. I would have preferred it if it was a bit tackier, actually.

And Hollywood needs to pull its head out of chinas arse right fucking now, cause having bullshit scenes for the chinese actors that serves no purpose for anyone outside of china is getting really tiresome. Or, you know, at least cut them out for our versions of the film.

Racist.

Racist.

Well yes, but not against chinese people. I have nothing against them. I just dont like films padded with meaningless scenes to make these actors be more then the cameos they really ought to be, based on their relevance to the story.

Please, we all know the Swedes are the most intolerant and racist people on earth. Just look at your immigration policy. Tsk tsk.

SYNOPSIS:

A deep-sea submersible—part of an international undersea observation program—has been attacked by a massive creature and now lies disabled at the bottom of the deepest part of the Pacific Ocean…with its crew trapped inside. With time running out, former deep-sea rescue diver Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham) is drawn out of self-imposed exile by a visionary Chinese oceanographer, Dr. Zhang (Winston Chao), against the wishes of his daughter, Suyin (Li Bingbing), who thinks she can rescue the crew on her own. But it will take their combined efforts to save the crew, and the ocean itself, from this seemingly unstoppable threat—a prehistoric 75-foot-long shark known as the Megalodon. Thought to be extinct, the Meg turns out to be very much alive…and on the hunt.

Five years before, Jonas had encountered this same terrifying creature, but no one had believed him. Now, teamed with Suyin, Jonas must confront his fears and risk his own life to return to the ocean depths…bringing him face-to-face once more with the apex predator of all time.

A 4K version of The Meg is pretty much the textbook example of polishing a turd. The Last Shark was a better movie.
