Debatable. Main child character lost her mother in an accident between the two films. So, she technically wasn’t abandoned, however one could argue that the mother continued to go on dangerous missions despite knowing the risks.

Someone's head implodes after their deep sea helmet is punctured, due to the change in pressure. There is no gore or excessive body horror, but there are a few brief frames where we see where their head is supposed to be and it is gone.

Lots of jumpscares. Most of them are obvious when they are about to happen because you can tell that the movie gets quiet for a few seconds in an intense or suspenseful scene. The worst jumpscare in my opinion is a deep sea eel jumping and latching onto a character's helmet when the team is walking along the trench floor.

Not that I support either but I don’t appreciate people calling dangerous behavior/s*cide attempts “really, really dumb” as someone who has attempted the latter. :/ But yeah a guy nearly gets himself killed a few times while trying to communicate with The Meg.

There is a young gay man who dies in the first third of the movie. The characters are walking in special deep sea suits on the ocean floor, and the gay character is the last person in the walking line. He is swept up by a sea creature with some screaming. We see that the helmet to his suit has popped off and floats towards the rest of the characters as they mourn and have to continue walking without him.

Guns are used frequently through the entire movie, against humans and sea life.
