HOR­ROR thriller. Dr Zhang (Win­ston Chao) and his daugh­ter Suyin (Li Bing­bing) over­see the Mana One re­search fa­cil­ity off the Chi­nese coast. Dur­ing a dive in the Mar­i­ana Trench, a sub­mersible pi­loted by Lori (Jes­sica McNamee), Toshi (Masi Oka) and Wall (Ola­fur Darri Olaf­s­son) is at­tacked by a 75ft long mega­lodon shark. Dr Zhang and Mana One’s sta­tion chief Mac (Cliff Cur­tis) try to per­suade un­der­wa­ter res­cue ex­pert Jonas Tay­lor (Ja­son Statham) to help the stricken crew. “Man ver­sus meg isn’t a fight. It’s a slaugh­ter!” snarls Jonas, bait­ing the hook for out­landish scenes of car­nage.
