Early Reactions To ‘The Meg’ Movie Have Hit The Internet

The Meg is due to be released in cinemas soon, but some lucky fans got to see previews of the movie. The story, which is based on the 1997 science fiction novel, Meg: A Novel of Great Terror by Steve Alten, follows Jason Statham as he attempts to defeat the 75 foot, prehistoric Megalodon Shark. Trailers and images from the movie have been widely well received, aside from some fans of the book noticing variations in the trailers. Now, fans have took to twitter to share their early reviews of the movie.

People have named The Meg the “most enjoyable movie of the summer” and praised the balance between not taking itself too seriously and being “just serious enough to keep you invested.” Another fan addressed Sharknado and said that “it 100% knows what type of movie it is without resorting to dumb Sharknado levels of stupidity.”

Hearing that will come as a relief to some people following the success of the ridiculous and widely criticized Sharknado franchise.

In the movie:

A deep-sea submersible—part of an international undersea observation program—has been attacked by a massive creature, previously thought to be extinct, and now lies disabled at the bottom of the deepest trench in the Pacific…with its crew trapped inside.  With time running out, expert deep sea rescue diver Jonas Taylor (Statham) is recruited by a visionary Chinese oceanographer (Winston Chao), against the wishes of his daughter Suyin (Li Bingbing), to save the crew—and the ocean itself—from this unstoppable threat: a pre-historic 75-foot-long shark known as the Megalodon.  What no one could have imagined is that, years before, Taylor had encountered this same terrifying creature.  Now, teamed with Suyin, he must confront his fears and risk his own life to save everyone trapped below…bringing him face to face once more with the greatest and largest predator of all time.

The Meg will be released on August 10.
