The billionaire funding a fancy underwater research facility visits in order to watch the first mission to explore whether the Mariana Trench is actually deeper than previously believed. It is, in fact, deeper, but celebrations are cut short as the mission submersible is attacked by a large unidentified creature, putting the lives of everyone on board at risk.

In order to save the people in the mission submersible, the team enlists the help of former rescue diver Jonas Taylor. Jonas, too, once encountered something like the creature that attacked the mission submersible, although no one believed him at the time. Unfortunately for Jonas and the research team, this rescue mission is only the beginning of their encounters with the "Meg" (megalodon, a prehistoric species of shark believed to be extinct until these characters find it).

I didn't read the box very closely and somehow confused this movie with Deep Blue Sea, so I wasn't expecting Jason Statham to be in it. All in all, this is a by-the-numbers "enormous creature previously believed to be extinct" movie, complete with the jerk billionaire who manages to squeeze out some crocodile tears before abandoning everyone and then predictably dying. There is one muscular male main character and one beautiful female main character, and so of course there is predictable romantic interest as well, along with a well-spoken eight-year-old who does her best to act as matchmaker.

It's not a terrible movie, but it's also not what I'd call good or particularly memorable. The most unusual thing about it is that its "beach goers being attacked" scene takes place on a Chinese beach rather than a US one.

Extras:

There was a "making of" featurette, but I didn't bother to watch it.
