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

The minimalism and travelogue documentary style of shooting in this film is impressive. As a thriller, it is surely underwhelming, but the engulfing atmosphere created on such a tiny budget is entrapping. It's the anti-Cloverfield - a realistically shot monster/alien movie that relies more on building character and a slow sense of dread and tragedy than it does on spectacular special effects sequences. So, while I didn't feel the all-out terror and excitement that I felt during a screening of Cloverfield, I still was completely entranced by both the characters and the setting. I almost feel that the fatalistic ending dashes all the bittersweet beauty that came before.

Considering the budget, it turned out pretty good - but the characters and story aren't fleshed out enough and the obvious political references don't help things. A good effort, but falls short in my book.
