Meg 2 review and rating : Jason Statham shark movie
In 2018, The Meg did not receive overwhelmingly positive reviews from film critics, but that did not prevent the shark movie from becoming a financial success at the box office, grossing more than $500 million throughout the world.
Meg 2 review and ratings : Jason Statham shark movie
Even though we had to wait five years for Jason Statham to get back into shark-killing mode, a sequel was pretty much quickly guaranteed almost as soon as the first film came out. Meg 2: The Trench is now playing in theaters, however reviews are being held under embargo until the day the film is officially released in the UK.
In most other movies, if that happened, the audience would immediately know something was wrong. If there is one movie that is guaranteed to do well at the box office this summer, it is Meg 2, which you are already aware of if you are interested in seeing more action involving Stath fighting a gigantic bloodthirsty shark.
Meg 2 rating
Are we suggesting that this demonstrates that our review was rather futile? Probably. But because we're part of the crowd that so desperately wants to see Stath versus the shark, we've made up our minds to see it despite the fact that the sequel seems to have forgotten that it's a shark movie.
If you're looking for something more substantial than Stath versus the sharks (there are three of them this time), I've got you covered with Meg 2: The Trench.
In the years that have passed since the release of the first film, Jonas Taylor, played by Statham, has become some kind of environmental spy. As part of his work with the Oceanic Institute, which is directed by Suyin's brother Jiuming (Wu Ying), he prevents a wide variety of evil persons from interfering with the ocean.
Given that he is one of the few people to compete head-to-head with one and come out on top, he is also available to offer professional Meg guidance. Therefore, Jonas and Jiuming travel to the ocean's deepest regions in order to map out the trench. They believe this is where the Megs originate from, as well as the location of a wide variety of other prehistoric animals.
When they come across an illegal mining operation on the seafloor, it should come as no surprise that this mission does not go according to plan totally. In a matter of moments, Jonas will be forced to draw on all of his previous experiences in order to survive a perilous race against time while engaged in yet another high-stakes struggle for survival.
