Fun movie! DUMB, but fun!

Was a fun watch. Didn't feel I missed out from the cinema after watching this at home. Too many goofy issues where I was unable to suspend disbelief (i.e. the Meg's teeth biting into the glass walls of facility but unable to break it? Shark coming out of the Meg's mouth. The Meg going into a beach and below other beach-goers, etc...) and it felt more like a fun Jason Strathem movie rather a scary type of film.

As far as shark movies go it's nice to see one every once in awhile. No, this wasn't Jaws but it was fun to watch.

In my opinion the movie was great. Not as horrific as Jaws, or other sea creature movies. There were a lot of plot holes but they didn't take away from the overall plot of the movie. Jason Statham played a very typical role in this role and it wouldn't be an action movie with him in it without a damsel in distress and a misplaced or unneeded child character. All in all the movie was enjoyable and I hope there is a sequel.

This movie was ridiculously bad - and I'm still not sure if it was bad in the way you want a shark movie to be bad or if it was just bad. Jury is still out. Shark movies are always fun though - so definitely worth a watch.

It's a shark movie with Jason Stratham, don't expect it to rise to the level of Captain Ahab or even Sheriff Brody. A bigger boat won't help you. This movie is exactly what it claims to be, big shark vs puny humans. We only win because don't have to live in the water otherwise we wouldn't be the apex predator. There are a couple of the got you "oh shit" moments that make it fun. After being traumatized by Jaws in the theater as a small child, it does make me rethink going in the water.

Great movie to watch with my 10 year old son. We had a blast watching it.

Entertaining, but I will only ever watch it once.

I liked it--An entertaining adventure movie with some humor and Jaws references thrown in and Jason Statham, who never disappoints. It reminded me of a SCFI channel movie, but with much better FX, scripting, and casting. Suspend your disbelief and cynicism and have fun!

Bad acting, plot holes, but quite entertaining.

28 quotes already posted in IMDb and they are good like this one from the little girl:
Jonas Taylor: You know a lot.
Meiying: Eight-year-olds hear everything.

Surprised that this one repeated in different ways has not been posted:

Suyin, what you said before, you were right. It's not about the people you lose. It's about the people you save.

Or:

I left my two best friends to die. I think about it all the time. Every day I replay it. Could I have done more?
-It's not just about the ones you lose. It's also about the ones you save.
