I guess we have a front-runner for the new popular film Oscar category: The Meg is big, loud and extremely dumb, and the audience at my screening loved it!
This is one of the four films I list as my favorites on my profile.Apart from a slightly questionable performance by Brad Pitt, this film is perfect in my opinion.
The opening credits set the tone perfectly with some extremely disturbing images set to a remix of the song Closer by Nine Inch Nails. From then on the film plunges the audience into a world of darkness and absolute depravity. The final scene is simply unforgettable.
“What’s in the box?”
This film is absolute insanity from beginning to end and I loved it! I had a smile on my face the whole time and I actually giggled out loud a few times at how over the top it was.
The choreography of the fight sequences is astonishing. Instead of going for a ballet-like gracefulness like Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, this film just goes for pure brutality. The film is extremely violent and I can see some people being turned off…
