    • Despite being an upscale, The Meg is prime demo material.

    • Nothing on the 4K disc, and nothing substantial on the Blu-ray; just a couple of EPK Featurettes.

    • It feels like Jaws remade by committee, but once you accept that and view it more like Jurassic World, it does offer some super-sized fun.

    • Fans with suitably bottomed-out expectations might find some pleasure in this unsurprisingly silly Stath-vs-shark blockbuster.

    • The Meg makes a big splash with its 2160p 2.40:1 transfer with Dolby Vision HDR and HDR10. Sourced from a 2K digital intermediate, the 4K UHD offers robust detail levels. While I wouldn't go on the limb...
