Mini Review - The Meg

The Meg (out Aug 16) is complete trash... but I think that was the intention and so it's mildly entertaining. Don't go in expecting a Jaws-style thriller. This is a shark "comedy" where the film mocks the genre by deliberately using dumb characters, well worn cliches, and farcical escape acts. It loses its way in the final act in trying to become more serious. Grade: B-.
