Saw the Meg last night. It was ok but nothing like JAWS. You can tell they try to do some homage to JAWS but I see some critical differences.
Jaws was a horror movie, the Meg sci fi and action/adventure.
No compelling characters in the Meg. Looking for a version of Quinn.
In the Meg the humans who fight the shark seem to always have the upper hand with advanced weapons and backup while in Jaws the humans have to improvise.
The biggie - NO COOL MUSIC! Where was the equivalent to"daaaaa… dump, daa… dump, da da da da da"? All they had was a bad chinese rendition of “Hey Mickey”.
Then their is the whole fact the movie was a joint Chinese/American production so China is featured as the smart, advanced culture. The buffoon was a white american.
What did you all think of The Meg?
