    Ben Wheatley is to direct a sequel to the first film with most of the original cast also set to return to follow up the unlikely hit.

    Y'know? Kinda happy. I mean, I have no idea how they'll do it, but I would totally watch a follow-up.

    The first one was basically Fast & Furious in boats; perfect, fast-paced, light popcorn fodder, which followed every cliche in the book in the right areas and circumvented them in others. I only watched it because, due to a layover in some travel plans, I ended up stuck in Reading for 5 hours one day and needed to kill some time, and there happened to be a cinema nearby. Honestly though, I was glad I did.

    We watched the first one a couple of months ago as I had not seen it and it was definitely a fun romp I wish I had gotten to see at the cinema. Looking forward to it

    What I couldn't believe was that The Meg is an adaptation of a book series. The first film adapts two of the novels, the original and a prequel. Amazingly there are still five more novels to be adapted.

    Ugh, I hated this film. Ironically, totally toothless. I really wanted it to be a fun cornball confection, but the acting and script were both seriously lacking in energy. It ended up simply dull.

    But hang on - Ben Wheatley directing the sequel?! I might have to watch it just for the bizarre combination of Wheatley and an otherwise creatively conservative made-for-China CGI fest.

    I watched it for the first time a few nights ago. More cheesy than a block of cheddar, but enjoyable.

    It was big dumb fun.
