Five years on from a tragic underwater rescue mission where Jonas Taylor (played by Jason Statham) leaves a group of men behind to die after finding their sunken nuclear submarine billionaire Jack Morris meets Dr Minway Zhang (played by Winston Chao) at his new underwater research centre “Mana One” and this is where we start our journey in Roadshow films newest blockbuster The Meg. As we are introduced to Zhang’s daughter, Suyin (played by Li BingBing) – an acclaimed oceanographer, we are told about their mission to explore what may be a deeper section of the Marianas trench that is believed to be concealed by a thermocline cloud of hydrogen sulphide. As their maiden voyage is tracked Lori (played by Jessica McNamee), Toshi (played by Masi Oka) & “The Wall” (played by Olafur Olafsson) seem to be doing well, breaking the barrier and exploring new and unchartered territory until a very large creature hits the submersible causing it to loose contact.

After seeking out Taylor in his holiday home in Thailand and convincing him to complete another deadly mission the countdown to rescue is on and as they head back to Mana One Suyin does the unthinkable and attempts the mission herself putting her in danger of whatever is in the deep. As we’re taken down to the crash zone through Suyin’s submersible we see the terror that is about to happen and as she is captured by a colossal squid it seems impossible that she’d make it out alive, that is until the squid is killed by a mammoth shark. As Taylor defends to her altitude he becomes the beacon of hope and as she becomes the pawn he becomes all hope for saving the trapped team members. As he approaches the injured submersible he finds out just what has hit them in the first place and as we get our first glimpse of the Megladon we see Toshi do something unthinkable and close the hatch, saving his team members and sealing his fate.

I won’t ruin the ending for you but needless to say it’s a killer and it’s anyones guess who will make it out alive. I know you haven’t seen The Meg just yet (as it comes out tomorrow) but take a look at some of my favourite scenes from the film below before you get to see it for yourself this weekend. Don’t be too scared this sci-fi thriller isn’t too over the top, but it will definitely have you wondering when it’s safe to go back into the water…
