The Meg is a tale of two halves

A bigger shark than Jaws? All right, sign me up.

Well, those were my thoughts going into the film, but I expected nothing more than a cheesy shark film, a la Sharknado. With Jason Statham as the leading man, I figured this would just be an off-the-walls ride.

In the first 30, 45 minutes, director Jon Turteltaub had himself a fun film. The movie didn’t take itself seriously, the writing wasn’t trying to do more than necessary and hey — I enjoyed how the characters shot jokes at one another.

Then there’s the second half of this movie, which sinks rather than swims.
