The movie was stupid as hell for 80 minutes and then, suddenly, it got stupider as hell until the credits rolled. The urban legend of Slenderman works so well when he’s lurking in the shadows and showing up in the darkest corners of photographs, but he doesn’t work AT ALL as a giant CGI tarantula tree monster. Screw this PG-13 garbage.
I didn’t hate THE MEG! Also didn’t really like it all too much. It has some cool scenes, but for the most part it’s another forgettable shark movie. It goes to greater depths than any shark movie before it, yet still remains extremely shallow in just about every regard.
The PG-13 rating killed this movie; it would’ve been much better if it were rated-R.
