PLOT:

Jonas Taylor attempts to rescue other divers, among them Dr. Heller, from a massive, underwater shark attack. Taylor is able to rescue some but refuses to go back to save the rest, having realized that going back for the rest would mean the death of all.

Five years later, Jack Morris meets Dr. Minway Zhang and his daughter Suyin at an underwater research facility called “Mana One”. A mission to dive further into the depths of the ocean is being conducted by Celeste, Toshi and the Wall, with the supervision of DJ, Jaxx Heard, James “Mac” Mackreides, as well as Dr. Heller, at the station. The mission appears to be going well, until a large object hits the ship and causes it to lose contact with Mana One.

Mac suggests sending Taylor down to attempt a rescue, after he suspects the object which hit the underwater ship to be Megalodon, a giant shark thought to have been extinct. Dr. Heller objects, but Zhang and Mac decide to travel to Thailand to recruit him anyways. Managing to convince him to help them, Taylor is able to reach the stranded three scientists. Toshi then sacrifices himself in order to allow Taylor to escape with the Wall and Celeste.

Back at Mana One, the station receives a signal that sharks have broken through the depths of the ocean – including the Megalodon. What follows is an attempt to track and inject poison into the Megalodon. While the crew does succeed in doing that with a shark, they kill the wrong one and the Megalodon attacks the crew, eating Dr. Heller, the Wall and Jaxx Herd, while causing a fatal injury to Zhang.

The rest moves back to the Mana One. Morris decides to take out the Megalodon himself with grenades thrown from a helicopter. However, he accidentally kills a whale instead and then gets eaten by the Megalodon.

Taylor and the crew realize that the Megalodon is en route to a local Chinese beach, full of attendees. There, the Megalodon causes havoc and eats a number of beachgoers. The crew decides to save the local beachgoers by attracting the Megalodon. Taylor manages to scratch the Megalodon and attract other sharks to eat it, thus killing it. Having killed the Megalodon, Taylor and his crew reunite at a private boat used by a Chinese couple.
