BLU-RAY REVIEW & GIVEAWAY — “The Meg”
Go head-to-head with the largest prehistoric shark to ever exist when “The Meg” arrives on 4K UHD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD Special Edition and Digital. Read our review of the film here.
A deep-sea submersible—part of an international undersea observation program—has been attacked by a massive creature and now lies disabled at the bottom of the deepest part of the Pacific Ocean…with its crew trapped inside. With time running out, former deep-sea rescue diver Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham) is drawn out of self-imposed exile by a visionary Chinese oceanographer, Dr. Zhang (Winston Chao), against the wishes of his daughter, Suyin (Li Bingbing), who thinks she can rescue the crew on her own. But it will take their combined efforts to save the crew, and the ocean itself, from this seemingly unstoppable threat—a prehistoric 75-foot-long shark known as the Megalodon. Thought to be extinct, the Meg turns out to be very much alive…and on the hunt.
Five years before, Jonas had encountered this same terrifying creature, but no one had believed him. Now, teamed with Suyin, Jonas must confront his fears and risk his own life to return to the ocean depths…bringing him face-to-face once more with the apex predator of all time.
Directed by Jon Turteltaub (the “National Treasure” movies), the science fiction action thriller “The Meg” stars Jason Statham (“Spy,” “The Fate of the Furious,” “The Expendables” films) and award-winning Chinese actress Li Bingbing (“Transformers: Age of Extinction,” “Forbidden Kingdom,” “The Message”).

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson!
Favorite action star is Liam Neeson! You got to give it to him the man’s a beast. He has so much Charisma and always a huge box office drop. I really really enjoyed reading this review and cannot wait to see the Meg now! My fingers are crossed.
My favorite action star is Pierce Brosnan. He’s sexy charismatic and a big box office draw. Enjoyed your review and hoping to win.
I gotta say Keanu Reeves. The work he did in John Wick pushed the entire genre forward!
I have always liked Harrison Ford. He was Indiana Jones, Han Solo and Jack Ryan. He has had quite a successful career.
Tom Cruise – he is so brave!
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is amazing in his action films. The dude is a great entertainer from WWE to comedies to action.
Bruce Willis is awesome!
Sylvester Stallone – so many amazing action films
arnold schwarzenegger, hands down
The man, the myth, the legend, the CHUCK NORRIS!
Vin Deisel is pretty impressive in action films. All of the Riddick, XXX, and Fast and Furious films are great action! Does he as Groot in the MCU films count also? Ha
Bruce Lee, Jet Li, Jackie Chan
