Shark thriller 'The Meg' goes deep, stays shallowWe're going to need a bigger boat for all these shark movies. On the tail of "The Shallows," "47 Meters Down," "Dark Tide" and, of course, the seminal "Sharknado," comes "The Meg," the latest in a growing school of shark movies, all of which, to varying degrees, use our fond memories of "Jaws" as bait to reel us back in the water again. To my disappointment, the title of "The Meg" does not refer to Meg Ryan (though it's nice to imagine an action movie revolving around Jason Statham making precarious escapes from the "When Harry Met Sally ... ". star).Based on Steve Alten's "Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror," "The Meg" has been in development for some two decades, only to finally emerge as American-Chinese hybrid."The Meg" is best when it admits how derivative it is – just one more silly shark movie.
