Film: The Meg Click for more info

A film about a giant shark? How bad could it be? In what is a great example of "you really should have known better": very bad.

But one might be forgiven considering this was also the year of the more enjoyable Rampage and Skyscraper (and I'm pretty sure I'm missing another Dwayne film). But it clearly takes a certain talent to present the preposterous, and The Meg just happens to lack it. Basics like the acting, or the dialogue (oh man, the dialogue) and some really poor direction get in the way of what was a pretty decent plot (in the context of plots about big fish)... so really it's not the giant shark that should be blamed here but, as usual in matters of nature, the men behind it.

One to avoid.
