Is this a comedy or an action flick? Or both?

It seems to be a horror film that doesn't take itself seriously. Interestingly, it has a $150million budget.

It looks like good entertainment, as opposed to the abomination that is Deep Blue Sea 2, which was just unwatchable

Looks cheesy.

Budget is huge, but that doesn't matter to Hollywood these days, especially since this is a joint China/USA production.

I think its funny how hollywood seems to be in love with anything HUGE, the last King Kong movie was a great example, they made the ape so ridiculously large, it was almost comical, the Independence Day sequel is another, (the mother alien, and the mother ship), Godzilla is another one.

Jason Statham has been great in secondary supporting roles. But I have never seen him as a convincing lead. Maybe the writing has just never been there for him? But I have never seen one of his movies where he was the lead character where he filled the role.

As an actor, he's definitely world's above the wooden puppetry performances of Steven Seagal or Jean Claude van Damme. But Statham could take acting lessons from Ahnuld, Stallone, or Dwayne Johnson. And none of them can fill Roy Scheider's boots.

I'd be more excited for this movie if Rainn Wilson were the lead.

Doesn't look like it's based on the novel.

Looks like Jaws on steroids. Like Piranha, Deep rising, and all the other ramped up aquatic creature films it looks like just a fun popcorn film. No one is expecting an Oscar nomination. I like giant monster films having grown up on Godzilla and his crew.

The ocean base looks really cool in this one I noticed. Almost like the sea base in the terrific The Abyss only more sleek and stylish.
