(2018) A silly, yet entertaining popcorn movie, a cross between Jaws and Jurassic Park directed by Jon Turtletaub from the eponymous 1997 novel by Steve Altern. A deep-sea diver (Jason Stratham) is called out of retirement for an emergency rescue mission of the crew of a mini-submarine at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, piloted by his ex-wife (Jessica McNamee). With the help of an oceanographer (Li Bingbing), the mission is a success, but it releases the eponymous monster shark, which heads to the surface to feast on humanity. Despite a good deal of humor, the creature’s rampages will prove too scary for younger viewers. Perilous scenes of shark attacks, some gore, brief sexual banter, a handful of profane and crude oaths. (A-III -- adults) (PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned) HBO (cable)
