THE MEG

SPANISH VERSION

SYNOPSIS

While it was doing a scientific exploration of the deep sea, it is discovered unknown forms of life. The meg is one of those, which is getting out of its natural habitat to alter the marine ecosystem.  The group of scientists, who discover it, work together with a well-known and after discredited rescuer to control it and avoid that it causes more damage. Watch the trailer.

OVERVIEW AND STORY

A story of what could happen in the Steve Alten’s view if the man could explore the deep of the sea and what would find in terms of new forms of life. At the same time, it can be seen the story of a rescuer who is specialised on submarines rescues. After an incident in which some people die due to a decision that he had to make in a matter of seconds, he is isolated and blamed for society. Both stories converge when that exploration is needed an experienced rescuer to execute a complex mission. In that rescue, the meg is released to the ocean surface and a chain of violent events start. Therefore, it is necessary to create a plan to control this situation and avoid that the meg might cause damage to the population. This movie has many action scenes with so much tension and suspense which keep the expectation alive all the time. Of course, the romantic part is unavoidable and in this case, is based on the attraction between Jonas and Suyin with the active participation of the Suyin’s daughter.

THE MAIN CHARACTERS

Li Bingbing                                                                       Jason Statham

If you click on the name you will see a gallery of photos of each one by Google. I remembered Li Bingbing in her role as Ada Wong on Resident Evil Retribution, a good representation of the Asian beauty. Jason Statham is famous for many roles but I especially remembered The Transporter and The Expendables. I would like to have a ranking of the main characters in the movies that I post, a reason why if you want to give them a vote you can do it as follow:

¡SPOILERS ALERT! ¡SPOILERS ALERT!

FROM HERE THERE WILL BE CONTENT THAT TALKS DIRECTLY ABOUT SITUATIONS IN THE MOVIE, REASON WHY IF YOU WANT TO WATCH IT BEFORE TO CONTINUE IS A GOOD MOMENT TO DO THAT. WHEN YOU HAVE FINISHED YOU CAN COME BACK TO FINISH YOUR CONTRIBUTION OTHERWISE IF YOU DO NOT MIND SPOILERS YOU WILL BE MORE THAN WELCOME TO CONTINUE. THE IDEA IS NOT TO TELL THE WHOLE MOVIE BECAUSE IT WILL BE ANNOYING FROM ME WITH YOU GUYS.

THE BEST SCENES

  1. The scene, in which the submersible is trapped by a giant squid who starts to tighten it until it is killed by the meg, is well achieved and stressful.
  2. Another excellent scene is when Jonas is pursued by the meg while he is pulled by the cord to maximum speed. It is predictable because we all know that he is not going to be eaten but it creates positive tension. It is one of the cliche scenes that is impossible to avoid.
  3. The moment in which everyone believes that the meg has been captured. They have it hanged to the boat and the biggest meg appears to eat the small one, causing the sinking of the boat and throwing everybody into the water. In my opinion, this is the best scene in the movie, good special effects, high tension and, a big surprise.

THE END

The final hunting of the meg, using submersibles of last technology, is original at least it is not seen in a movie of this genre. The way in which Jonas uses this submersible to hurt the creature and make that the other animals, specifically sharks and whales, attack and finally killed it is also creative and fair. In my concept, it is a very good ending, it is not possible to think about a sequel or another hidden meg in the surface.
