The Meg

The Meg
Jonas Taylor’s life and career changed drastically after a disastrous attempt to save a crew in the Mariana Trench. Fast forward five years and when another crew, led by his ex-wife, Lori, is attacked in the same area by a megalodon shark, there is only one person that is called in to rescue them. Although the mission proves successful, the venture into the trench provides a gateway for the once thought extinct shark to return to the oceans. Now, Jonas and his crew must track down and eliminate the predator. Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching “The Meg”.

· Mac hands Jonas the hydraulic hatch opener and warns him not to blow his ears out. Jonas grabs the hatch opener with his right hand and bows down inside. In the next view, two bags are shown being tossed inside as Jonas climbs down but he doesn’t have the hatch opener. Jonas has it a while later when he uses it to open the hatch on the distressed vessel.

· Jonas is in the water to put the tracker on the shark. His radio is shown in his right ear. When Jonas goes underwater and sees the shark, he quickly resurfaces, and the radio is in his left ear. During the rest of the scene, the radio is back in its original position, in Jonas’ right ear.

· Near the end of the movie, Jonas’ ship is being attached by the shark underwater. He escapes the damaged ship while wearing goggles and the underwater breathing device. He still has both when he attacks the shark’s eye. When the shark jumps out the water, Jonas still has the breathing device but the goggles are gone.

“The Meg” (2018) stars Jason Statham, Bingbing Li, Rainn Wilson, Cliff Curtis, Winston Chao, Shuya Sophia Cai, Ruby Rose, Page Kennedy, Masi Oka, and Jessica McNamee. It runs 113 minutes and is rated PG-13 for action/peril, bloody images and some language.
