Predictable and hilarious, need to fast forward during non Meg scenes

Have you ever wonder what would happen if you took Jaws, Jurassic park, Deep blue sea, and all the sharknado movies and mix them up together, you would probably get The Meg. Yes! The Meg, which is short for Megalodon. It is really entertaining, and it’s fun to watch, I am a huge fan of watching this type of movie. It gives you chills and well of course jump scares. But just like most of the movies based on this particular theme, it’s kinda familiar how this movie gonna go and you might already know what will happen, not most of them but some. Overall, it’s good, the characters are amazing and it is fun to watch with your family or friends. 3/5 Stars. @moviefanatic of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

If you've seen... Well, every shark movie ever made than you aren't missing anything new here. The very obviously computer generated effects are really not that enticing and if you've seen Deep Blue Sea (much better movie than this) it's the Same Exact Movie only much more frightening, funny and better acting and effects. And I swear if I see one more Jason Statham-as wise-cracking-hard-ass-super-macho-manbutilookgoodwhileI'mdoingit-movie I'm seriously going to blow chunks in his smartass face!!!

I was skeptical at first given the bad reviews/ratings by others, but was pleasantly surprised. It was actually a good movie, enjoyed it.

I enjoyed this not-jaws movie. A change from Statham's regular movies. Not to be taken too seriously. Just keep swimming ...

I was pretty surprised. Despite others not being wild about this, I thought it was good. Statham does a good job creating a different character. Meg was fairly well done, though obviously not an ILM production.
Very obvious Asian finance involvement.

1975 JAWS story reimagined and incorporated into a 2018 setting and moved to China. it is almost the same movie in parts as the 1975 JAWS but given an update and with more people. How can a 75 foot shark with a maw of 20 feet across be swimming in beach waters where people swim and wade it so close to shore? And it is SOOO smart ! This movie is also Star Wars NABUU underwater sequence trying to elude the massive shark with one person futuristic subs. Dull, boring at times and just unbelievable. Poor storyline, dumb dialogue but tweeners may like it. But it is free from library so it won't cost you anything! A stiff glass of ice tea, milk or a wee dram so you will laugh a lot. There is even a dog named PIPPIN! ( remember in Jaws..the black lab fetching the stick?)

Didn’t keep my attention at any time. Just watched it so I would never have to think of it again. Larger than life hero chases larger than life shark, for a very dull and unrealistic and very unenthusiastic film.

Statham, his usual self, a scruffy unshaven superhuman. What is it with this modern world. Are we going back to primitive primates before the razor was invented? Also filled with flaws.

Love this movie and you know I’m going to be renting it out more than one time! It may not make sense but it’s a fun movie to watch

28 quotes already posted in IMDb and they are good like this one from the little girl:
Jonas Taylor: You know a lot.
Meiying: Eight-year-olds hear everything.

Surprised that this one repeated in different ways has not been posted:

Suyin, what you said before, you were right. It's not about the people you lose. It's about the people you save.

Or:

I left my two best friends to die. I think about it all the time. Every day I replay it. Could I have done more?
-It's not just about the ones you lose. It's also about the ones you save.
