Sci-fi/Action: Scientists and deep sea explorers mistakenly release a 70-foot prehistoric shark, and only one man can stop the creature.
Deep sea diver Jonas Taylor (JASON STATHAM) undertakes a rescue mission in the Mariana Trench where he and his men are attacked by a giant prehistoric shark known as a Megalodon. Jonas is forced to make a command decision that costs him half of his crew. Haunted by the incident and dishonorably discharged from the Navy, Jonas' marriage to Greenpeace pilot Lori Taylor (JESSICA McNAMEE) falls apart and he goes into seclusion.

Five years later, a billionaire named Morris (RAINN WILSON) is funding a deep-sea expedition in that same part of the ocean spearheaded by scientist Zhang (WINSTON CHAO) and his daughter, Suyin (BINGBING LI). Lori pilots a submersible with researchers The Wall (OLAFUR DARRI OLAFSSON) and Toshi (MASI OKA) into the unexplored reaches of the Trench previously thought unreachable. While down there, they rouse the same Megalodon that Jonas encountered. The shark attacks them and incapacitates their ship.

Over the objections of the research station's Dr. Heller (ROBERT TAYLOR), the still-traumatized Jonas is recruited to mount a rescue mission. Engineers and mission specialists Jaxx (RUBY ROSE), Mac (CLIFF CURTIS), and D.J. (PAGE KENNEDY) help guide him down to the marooned sub, but it soon becomes clear that their collective meddling has freed "The Meg" and put much of coastal Asia -- not to mention Suyin's precocious, 8-year-old daughter Meiying (SHUYA SOPHIA CAI) -- at risk.

Teens may be attracted to its action, PG-13 rating, and Jason Statham's star appeal.
For action/peril, bloody images, and some language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
