Critics Have Seen Meg 2: The Trench, And They Agree On What’s Lacking From The Jason Statham Sequel

Jason Statham is again as Jonas Taylor, 5 years after his character’s first struggle with the thought-to-be-extinct Megalodon. When there’s a sequel to one of these sci-fi motion flick, one factor is assured — it’s going to be larger than its predecessor and doubtless extra ridiculous. That’s what audiences are doubtless hoping for, as Meg 2: The Trench crashes into theaters on August 4. Critics had been capable of see the sequel forward of its launch, and so they largely appear to agree that it forgot to deliver the enjoyable campiness that drew audiences to the primary journey.
