Ultimately, The Meg disappoints most because we see what could have been. Somewhere in here there's a pared-down, gore-soaked, R-rated version of this that's amazing. But it certainly isn't this.

As far as giant monster movies go, this one packs a great deal of bite... even without a whole lot of actual biting.

This was long.

On a whole, I was disappointed.

It is not a majorly intelligent film, it's more popcorn and leave-your-brain-at-the-door type of entertainment, but it moves at a fast pace, has plenty in there for everyone, knows its audience, and goes for broke at times with the stunts and the humor...

Director Jon Turteltaub (National Treasure) strikes an agreeable tone, avoiding both unnecessary heaviness and self-aware camp.

Like every other shark movie ever.

Taken purely for what it is, there's plenty to enjoy about The Meg.

A giant shark dud. Hilariously bad. I actually enjoyed this movie because it was so horrible. The painful moments of Jason Statham (and I LOVE Statham) and the lead actress were uncomfortable, and I really cared less if anyone got eaten.

Director Jon Turteltaub reels you in with Bloody action and adventure for the first two thirds of this movie, but, after that, it gets pretty silly and sappy, including a romance, but not with the toothy Mega fish.

The Meg is fine when you're watching it, but you could easily keep one eye on the screen or bury your head in your popcorn and not miss much.

The superior acting skills and charisma of both Cliff Curtis and Winston Chao are woefully wasted.

There is nothing particularly exceptional about the film, but it is often tremendously fun.

The Meg is many things, most of those things are boring. What it isn't and never will be is a beloved cult flick that is surprisingly profitable or genuinely cherished.

Made up of pieces of much better films that it hurls into the water like so much chum, hoping unsuspecting audiences will take a bite.

The Meg is advertised as a fun and silly shark movie, but it has long, boring stretches and takes its 70-foot shark way too seriously.

Statham enjoys himself enormously, and always seems to be in on the joke.

Overall, the cheese should've been thicker, the pleasure should've been more guilty, and the bad should've been better
