Monster Hunter

Monster Hunter ★★★½

72

“Chocolate!” 

My expectations were absolutely zilch and I have zero connection to the video games. Actually, I gave World a go but I just couldn’t get into it at the time. All that being said, I enjoyed some of Anderson’s Resident Evil films. Sure, they’re trash but some of these were genuinely fun. So consider this a real surprise when I say I actually like this quite a bit, and I don’t feel guilty about it. I think the LB average here is a tad too low? Maybe? It’s really just straightforward fun. Milla gets trapped in the Monster Hunter world, fights then befriends Tony Jaa, and they kick monster butt together. What the hell is there not to like? I feel like Anderson’s films sometimes try too hard or bite off more than it can chew but this one just got right down to business, all in about a hour and forty. I definitely would recommend this for a good time. Probably nothing memorable but a good time nevertheless.
