Jon Turteltaub’s blockbuster action-horror film was filmed in China and New Zealand. A deep-sea submarine is attacked by a megalodon: a 75-foot living fossil and the largest shark to ever exist. To rescue the crew from this unexpected prehistoric uber-predator, a Chinese oceanographer (Winston Chao) and his daughter (Li Bingbing) enlist the help of a veteran deep-sea rescue diver (Jason Statham).~Augustine Chay

I thought The Meg was a fun and engaging shark movie that was interesting to the end. The setup and the first third or so of the film was good while letting you get to know the cast. Once the megalodon comes into the picture the tempo picks up and doesn't let go until the very end. Sure some parts were what you'd expect from a movie like this while others had me guessing as to how a scene would play our.
Overall, I'd recommend this movie if you want a fun movie about a giant
shatk that has an engaging cast of likable characters. Worth a buy but for sure a rent.
Sorry, there was a problem. Please try again later.
Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Movie is meh.
This Atmos mix on 11.2 (7.2.4) was nothing to brag about.
Passive 3D is a beaut on an OLED, 4K upscale but this was flat with no pop outs or depth.
No 4K/3D combo.
