I recommend this film as a film that is so bad; it’s good! I imagine that in the ideas meeting for this film, they took every single suggestion!
The premise is that a deep-sea submarine has been attacked by a massive creature and now lies at the bottom of the deepest trench in the Pacific, with its crew trapped inside. With time running out, expert deep-sea rescue diver Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham) is recruited by an oceanographer to save the crew from this unstoppable threat: a pre-historic 75-foot-long shark known as the Megalodon. What no one could have imagined is that, years before, Jonas had encountered this same terrifying creature. Now, teamed with Suyin, he must confront his fears and risk his own life to save everyone trapped below.
