The Meg [Movie Review]

Every now and then, we will see our friends tag us on their social media about needing more 'Vitamin Sea'.
Me included.
Will you still go into the sea after watching this?
But, after watching The Meg, I think it will be some time before I go diving or swimming in the open sea again. You will see me snorkeling and staying very near to the shore, just in case.
The movie started with Jonas and his team trying to rescue a group of people in a submarine. Later, Jonas has to make a huge decision of leaving his trapped fellow divers inside the sub after seeing the hub of the sub being rammed by an unknown creature. His action of the sudden leave causes the sub to explode and him being accused by Dr Heller as affected by pressure-induced psychosis.

Five years after, his service was again needed by a group of scientist on 'Mana One', an underwater research facility. He was to save a group of explorers trapped in a deeper section of the Mariana Trench, concealed by a thermocline cloud of hydrogen sulfide. And Jonas's ex-wife is among the trapped member of the expedition.
Excuse me, sir. Are you the dentist? I need to use braces so that I could smile better.
We're gonna need a much larger net to catch this one
Dr Suyin went first into the trench in the rescue expedition and was followed by Jonas. Suyin's sub was suddenly wrapped by a giant squid, which later was killed by a monstrous shark. And that huge shark proved Jonas's story about a monstrous creature that caused the sub to explode 5 years back.

Managed to save 2 out of 3 members of the trapped scientists, Jonas was about to let out a huge breathe of relief when the crew confirmed that the huge shark is, in fact, a megalodon (the largest shark and believed to be extinct for millions of years) and now has escaped to the surface. 

The group decides to track and poison the megalodon - and they succeed in doing so. And as Jonas and Suyin inspect the size of the teeth of the megalodon, a colossal megalodon emerges from the water and sinks their ship in its bid to eat the first and very much smaller megalodon.
Wow! So much plankton for dinner. Open wide!
How will the group kill the colossal megalodon?

Plot: 4.6/ 5.0. The second meg was certainly a heart-thumping and very unexpected twist to the movie. And of course, we all could predict the end of the movie but the action throughout the movie certainly had me jumpy and cringe at the thought of diving in a very near future.

Cast: 4.6/ 5.0. Everyone performed their part well. And I would say that everyone shared the screen equally, up until the little Meiying. 

Will I watch it again: Guess what? I did watch it twice, and the second time being on a D-Box seat, just to enhance the thrill.
