    Monster Hunter

    ★★★

    We’re living such strange times indeed, and I’m not talking about the pandemic here. After the Resident Evil fiasco I was dead set on not giving Paul W.S. Anderson a single, hard earned penny anymore. 

    And yet here we are.

    By no means a masterpiece of storytelling, and obviously relies on too many conveniences, but it ends up being kinda fun for what it is.

    ★★

    80% of this movie is just reaction shots of angry englishmen, showing disdain with silly faces or shouting: "That's preposterous!" to an Indian.
    15% Judi Dench being Judi Dench.
    5% of everything else.

    Not quite my tempo, to be honest.
