The movie was FINE. A solid flick. Until. Ron. Pearl man’s character was introduced. Really? His character cost it a full star. Ridiculously bad casting.
Behind our world, there is another: a world of dangerous and powerful monsters that rule their domain with deadly ferocity. When an unexpected sandstorm transports Captain Artemis (Milla Jovovich) and her unit (TI Harris, Meagan Good, Diego Boneta) to a new world, the soldiers are shocked to discover that this hostile and unknown environment is home to enormous and terrifying monsters immune to their firepower. In their desperate battle for survival, the unit encounters the mysterious Hunter (Tony Jaa), whose unique skills allow him to stay one step ahead of the powerful creatures. As Artemis and Hunter slowly build trust, she discovers that he is part of a team led by the Admiral (Ron Perlman). Facing a danger so great it could threaten to destroy their world, the brave warriors combine their unique abilities to band together for the ultimate showdown.
very nice movie 🥰😊
One of the worst movies I have ever seen, didn’t make any sense, the acting was terrible and in conclusion was a horrible experience. Would not recommend, I honestly can’t understand how people liked it.
This film exceeded ALL expectations!!! We need a sequel NOW!!! 🤩🤩🤩
Please do not buy this movie. It is horrible!! The script, acting, directing; everything is just bad. What a waste of money and time. Do not do it. I know there is nothing else out there. Watch a another episode of Buffy or something.
Really enjoyed this. Not too intense for kids either. Great monster action and lighting, kind of disappointed the CK line was removed from the Film but considering how sensitive communities can be I suppose I understand. The Film really does have a great message though: we’re stronger together. No matter our differences. Language, ethnicity, back ground. Anyone who missed that wasn’t paying attention. BUY IT.
Stop giving this guy video game movies to direct.
I really liked this movie. Although the plot sort of reminded me of enemy mind. Still a good watch. Great action, and effects on monsters impressed me quite a bit. The big one almost resembled a claymation, without the jaggedness motions that claymation typically brings. I also found the it a bit comical at times. Also a big fan of Mila Jovovich. She still got it!
I was looking forward to the film’s release. What a disappointment. It took forever to get anywhere where the viewer could guess what happened to the Rangers. What was the pirate cat all about?
A total let down.
Great nonstop action. Finally some good animation without lame-going-backwards cgi. Some inserted comedy. Don’t expect a complex storyline or the movie not for you. Shut your brain off and enjoy.
I had watched the "extras" prior to the movie and had hoped for a good "team" movie with character development similar to Predator or Aliens...but everyone gets whacked early on. I think Anderson sems to really only care about his wife and Tony Jaa. The computer graphics are reasonably well done but the monsters simply move too fast, a problem seen in many older movies. The physical nature of the creatures and robots in "Pacific Rim" should be required viewing for all film students. Nevertheless, the movie is kind of fun and a good distraction in this pandemic winter.
I was so excited to see this I spent the full $20. My soul is now weeping. The writing is horrible, the acting is just dull and everything about it is sooooo lame! It’s like a brick of moldy Brie soaked in government cheddar then further dipped in someone’s ancient garbage while being left to “cure” in a hot outhouse. Just don’t. Please don’t do this to your life.
I thought the action and monsters were great. The acting was decent. Worth a watch.
This movie was actually really good despite a few things I rather didn’t happen it was perfect for a action adventure monsters where well designed looking forward for a sequel I saw this in the movie theater and didn’t hesitate when I seen it available for purchase
I would wait until it’s 99 cents!!
Played the game and missing key details, so many monster missed that could have been included, as a fan and player on the game do not watch. Had high hopes for this movie.
i confess: i don’t know that much about monster hunter (the video games) and i haven’t seen the movie. but judging by the trailer and from what little i know about the franchise, i don’t think it’ll be very good.
but then again,
what video game movies are actually good?
Took my 9 year old and had a blast with him. Obviously, to him, it’s the best movie in the world! With that said we had a lot of fun in the theater, and I actually enjoyed myself.
I can honestly say, this was a decent video game to movie action adventure flick! Lots of violence and it’s bringing back that “sword and sorcery” vibe again!! It may not be for everyone but if you’re a fan of this style of genre then enjoy!!!
I’m surprised how much I liked it after hearing bad reviews. Hope they do a second one .
I thought it was great... The best monster movie for sure
Jawn looks good
20 bucks to rent nope
It’s kinda a mess but it’s a fun time
Release date 12/18/2020... a month ago and nothing. Dissaponted!
It's hard to believe a film these days could be both good and entertaining. Thankfully, Monster Hunter is such a film. I think it slows down in one spot, but then the film picks up the pace. Unfortunately, it feels like they rushed to get to the ending. The ending itself leaves off on a cliffhanger. They probably could've spent less time on the spider monsters, that's where it seems to drag on a little too long. Perhaps they could've cut short some of the scenes of them prepping to hunt the Diablos. I also dislike the depictions of what looks like US troops as UN peacekeepers. They likely did that to appeal to international audiences, or perhaps Japan. Anime seems to often depict military units as participating in UN peacekeeping operations, though I've never known the reason behind that. So I'll let that slide, for now. It is also hard to believe firearms would have little to no effect on monsters, but this is an isekai film so I guess I have to let that slide as well. Despite everything I've just said, I think this film is great. It's fun, it doesn't lecture the audience about politics, it seems to take the lore of Monster Hunter seriously and respects it - for the most part. I'm sure Monster Hunter fans reading this review must be curious as to the rating. That's easy, films like this are rare nowadays. Most films have some amount of politics injected into them, they lecture the audience, and share a lot of the same plot devices or twists. They're boring. That's not Monster Hunter (the film), and that's why I think it deserves five stars - despite its shortcomings. Watch it, enjoy it. It's good.
I pre order this movie but haven’t received it yet. Wasn’t this movie suppose to be released on 25th. December 2019 for purchase?
Better than average movie. Plenty of suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat ,but there are some funny moments sprinkled in the film also.
I’m still have it saying preorder
I really think they took their time with the Monster animations and it didn’t make a bad movie. But I feel there wasn’t enough action and there was a bit too much slow motion at the end. But other than that I feel it was a great movie. If they make a second I would recommend going more towards game lore to help others really understand how the monsters would act. And not have half of the movie Hunter vs Ranger
The story needs work but the animation was good would have been a lot better if there where more to explore in the world before they started killing off everyone and why everyone we like more then one survivor. Next time let there be more creatures more puzzles more surviving characters and let’s not get stinging on the weapons and armors mods like have your characters glow or something when charging up energy. Other then that looking forward to number two and have them ride some of them I mean come on don’t you think that be cool.
