I don't have all the words right now but this film is a work of art.
As somebody who had not heard any of this before, it became a curious phenomenon to sit and watch a film and slowly have the realities begin to click into place.
The movie turns out to be a little better than the average. Starting from a romantic formula often seen in the cinema, it ends in the most predictable (and somewhat bland) way.
It's not easy to create another movie about shark, since we have seen good ones by Steven Spielberg and others. I must give credit to the team who made this film, and it's not living under the shadow of Jaws. It's a different story, and there is some new ideas in it. The CG is quite good, and the movie is entertaining at least. Of course Jason Statham adds some points to it, and Bingbing Li is delightful to look at. It's not perfect, the ending part which happens near a beach doesn't quite make sense. But overall I would say I didn't waste my time buying tickets to watch in the cinema. It was a good 90 mins of entertainment.
I get what its going for, everyone does. What really ruined it for me was the heartlessness of it. Ill try to explain.The movie just has no vision or point; Its "fun" but if you only understood the word technically. Its weird cause theres scenes and moments that DID have a genuine feeling or idea that didnt feel like it was put together by an alien.Tone/mood moves around from lighthearted to dark an grotesque at random uneven intervals, weird shifts that cemented a feeling that, well, these people dont know what they're doing. Aparently there was a lot of studio interference, so that could explain stuff. But aside from that part, something else that really bugged me was that the megalodon stops acting like a giant predator fish. Theres a whole segment in the middle where it has a chance to do crazy damage! But instead the shark just. Stops.It basically starts acting like a normal shark movie and it feels like forced suspense. Things that logically would've happened already just, wont happen, cause, the script said so.It happens in silly pop corn fluff, i get it, suspension of disbelief is really necessary in this kind of movie. All this negative stuff just keeps piling up, and this is stuff thats in the heart of the experience, i cant ignore it. Characters are fine on their own. Some even have some really nice scenes, but overall, they arent given a lot to do, so a lot of characters deaths dont really resonate. And the ones that were suppoused to be satisfying felt tasteless or like nothing at all.Technically its good, its competent, its an expensive hollywood film that everythi g by the numbers well. Anything less than this would just be ridiculous. Im just dissapointed. This could have been really good fun, I wanted it to be fun. But it was just an artificial and boring mess.
. . . extinct for two million years, and Arch Demons for at least that long. However, the filmmakers at the always eponymous Warner Bros. use THE MEG to warn us that both of these assumptions are likely fallacies. Just as a man-made thermal updraft allows a couple of megs to escape the methane barrier imprisoning them for eons, Warner seems to be suggesting that the Devil's Disciples toiling for the Kremlin's Red Commie KGB have unleashed the noxious hot air of a vicious buffoon to resurrect Lucifer from the Gates of Hell to preside in America's once Hallowed Oval Office. By depicting "Jonas Taylor" as initially stymied in his attempts to eradicate the monsters chewing up his friends, Warner's allegory warns us that it will be very difficult to impeach a Game-Show-Host-in-Chief just because he's Possessed by Satan. Is Warner literally prescribing depth charges and heavy artillery to deal with this current threat to the USA's very survival? That's a tough one to answer for those lacking the time to watch Shark Week. In any event, Citizens should be thankful that Warner is helping us through our current travails with THE MEG.
How can a Shark film like this be less tame and yet have a higher film Cert Rating than PG rated Jaws. If you see this film your either stupid, or wouldn't know a great film if it slapped you in the face, and said Hi. Utter drivel! And Statham can't deliver serious dialogue either, without making the Audience laugh.
