I heard this had a very small budget. It makes you appreciate it more. This is more of a romance movie than sci-fi. It is OK. Check it out if you are looking for something different.

Better then I expected but still not as good as I hoped.I guess I was hoping it was gonna be as good as District 9 but it didn't even come close.District 9 was definitely a way better movie.Maybe it's because I'm not into Sci Fi movies or maybe it's because there weren't enough monsters in Monsters

"Monsters" by Yojimbo

A photo journalist is grudgingly charged with escorting his boss' daughter through the "infected zone" of central America which has become home for a race of huge alien creatures. Although the DVD cover screeches "THRILLING" and "ACTION PACKED", anyone misguided enough to be hoping for Cloverfield 2 will be mightily disappointed. Monsters is more a road movie that just happens to feature creatures from outer space and reminded me more of a cross between The African Queen and Jurassic Park, with the occasional nod to Apocalypse Now. The actual content is hardly original but the approach is refreshingly different in that it doesn't concentrate on the sci-fi aspect of the story, instead focusing on the protagonists and it has quite a nice "screw with nature at your own peril" subtext plus so...

Monsters review

The camera direction was very similar to Cloverfield. Samantha and Andrew friendship grew in a violent environment coupled with so many limitations to go to places which symbolizes political undertones. The haunting score brings the thrilling scenes life. The effects and set locations were realistic. If only there were more variety to the octopus like creatures, better character build-up and exciting moments, then I would have rated this much higher. The cinematography, acting and soundtrack was phenomenal, if only the screen play was better. Lines like "I'm going to be a meteorologist, because it's the only job where I can be wrong every day, and not get fired." and "I don't want to go home." make the film worthwhile. The ending was definitely worth waiting for and Monsters could ...

Un-scary movie

An ironic title that may have backfired if the US box office take is anything to go by. This was hardly bolstered by the the outrage of monster fanboys, raving at the relative lack of the eponymous creatures. Skip this and prepare instead for a slow paced road movie-cum arty romance, with tentacled menace lurking in the background. There's also a political allegory going on, signposted by the warning Homeland Security notices.

I have to admit it kind of lost me along the way. The (real-life) couple failed to sustain interest but there are many other elements to admire. The casting of locals is inspired, even if due to financial imperatives, and lends the south American setting tremendous authenticity. The miniscule budget (500k) is frequently belied both visually and aurally, so take...
