The Meg

The problem with The Meg isn't that it's dumb, it's that it isn't dumb enough. This is a movie about Jason Statham fighting a giant prehistoric shark that eats submarines, which isn't the sort of material that demands the My Dinner With Andre treatment (although I would watch that). All a super-shark chomp-em-up like this needs is a series of increasingly improbable chompings and a cast willing to gnaw more scenery than their ravenous, doll-eyed counterparts. Deep Blue Sea got this formula pretty close to right 19 years ago, but The Meg hasn't learned much from history. by Ben Coleman
