    Ik las ergens dat deze film niet eens een script had, het was goed te merken. Er gebeurt vrij weinig, zeker voor dit genre. Het duurt dan ook 40 minuten voor een set-up die in 5 minuten verteld had kunnen worden. Het had ook weinig toevoeging want ik wist van de helft van de tijd nog steeds niet waar de personages mee bezig waren, een gevolg van onwetende acteurs. That being said, de kwaliteit van het beeld en de (niet…

    No imagination. The two leads are torturously bad.

    Interesting speculative narrative has young couple thrown together by circumstance, trying to cross an infected zone under siege by malicious aliens, as they make their way from Mexico to the American border. So many ways to read this metaphorically, all of them politically interesting.

    Not a typical monster movie at all, Monsters is a lyrical romance drama with a very beautiful atmosphere and special effects that look amazing considering the budget of the film. Don't expect lots of monsters: they're mainly symbolical. The sense of peace the movie has due to its pacing is hard to explain; it's just beautiful all the way. On the other side, the movie has more dialogue than it needs, and it normaly isn't very good.

    If the opening scene of Monsters shows a US soldier humming the theme to Ride of the Valkyries as he rides in on an armoured jeep, it will not be the only evocation of Apocalypse Now to be found in the film, as Andrew Kaulder (Scoot McNairy) and Samantha Wynden (Whitney Able) take a trip up river into America's apocalyptic heart of darkness – but then, their romantic adventures in the…

    Simplesmente um dos melhores filmes de monstro já feitos. Tenso, econômico e lindo de se ver.

    My review -- this science-fiction/apocalypse/drama film title is now on DVD and the statistics of the budget or the profit margin are inconclusive based on the facts I couldn't find them. The basic storyline is this, we the audience quickly find out that the world as we know it has all but disappeared [6 years later] there are these monsters/zombies creatures that walk across the world apparently looking for mankind to eat or destroy. The main story focuses of them…

    My cousin told me that this was a beautiful movie to watch, so I checked it out. It truly is beautiful...to look at. This film fails to live up to its promises on so many levels that I'm strongly questioning my cousin's opinion. Of course, he's entitled to his, but my view on Monsters is the polar opposite.

    The movie basically revolves around a photojournalist who is asked by his boss to safely take his…

    How someone goes from making Monsters to making God-freaking-zilla I have no idea.

    I'd heard about this after director Gareth Edwards was announced to helm Godzilla based on the merits of this film. After Godzilla came out many said this was better than Godzilla minus the special effects. I think they are really right around the same in terms of the overall film. However, I have to tip my hat to Edwards with this film. He wrote, directed, shot the film as a cinematographer,…

    Terrific cinematography, some impressive low-budget fx, good performances, and much of it bored me to distraction. Feels more like a demo reel than a movie.
