The Meg Movie Plot

Five years ago, Jonas Taylor (expert sea diver and Naval Captain) encountered an unknown danger in the unexplored recesses of the Mariana Trench. He tried to rescue other divers from a massive, underwater shark attack.

He is able to rescue some of his crew but refuses to go back to save the rest, since he realized that going back to rescue the rest would mean the death to all of them. This incident earned him a dishonorable discharge, that ultimately cost him his career.

Five years later, Jack Morris meets Dr. Minway Zhang and his daughter Suyin at a modern underwater research facility called “Mana One“. Mana One is a mission to dive further into the depths of the ocean and the mission is being conducted with Toshi, Celeste, and the Wall. The mission is being supervised by DJ, Jaxx Heard, James “Mac” Mackreides and Dr. Heller.

This mission appears to be going well, until an unknown object hits the ship and causes it to lose contact with Morris, Zhang and Suyin. Taylor was sent to check what the object was when they suspect that it might be a Megalodon( a giant shark).


Having known that the object was actually a Megalodon they planned on how to kill the shark. Though the shark was later killed but some of the crew were eaten  by the shark while the other crew reunite at a private boat. This movie is an interesting movie that you will love to watch with family and friends enjoy!
