IN A NUTSHELL: This action-adventure movie is based on the video game by Capcom. One of the cast members, T.I., said that it was his youngest son that convinced him to be in the movie because he is such a fan of the Capcom video games. I was curious to hear from real gamers what they thought about the movie and they all agreed the monsters looked awesome. They said the movie is pretty faithful to the original game with some fun fan-service, so that's a good endorsement!

As far as the actual movie goes, the fantasy flick was written for the screen and directed by Paul W. S. Anderson. That's where the reviews start to head south. The plot is extremely thin, so if you want to just watch an action movie with lots of monsters and screaming, this one's for you. Movies based on video games have been notoriously terrible for some reason. This one will have big fans and haters.

There's a joke early in the movie that has gotten this production into serious trouble with its release in China, resulting in its being banned. One of the characters says, "What are my knees? What kind of knees are these? Chi-knees". Chinese audiences started posting terrible reviews on multiple platforms to damage the box office sales, accusing the movie of hurtful racism. Pushing their outrage further, the game Monster Hunter: World (2018) received thousands of negative reviews as well within 48 hours. Constantin Film later apologized for that scene, although it is still in the movie.

Tip: Eat chocolate while you watch this movie. Just do it.

TIPS FOR PARENTS: Lots of profanity People and monsters in perilous situations High body count with bloody, brutal deaths Tons of violence

THEMES: All of us have our own unique weaknesses. Persistence Hope Teamwork Resourcefulness Self-reliance

THINGS I LIKED: The movie starts out with a bang...and a crash...and screams. In other words, there is no waiting around for something to happen. Lots of humor. I've always loved Milla Jovovich for her unique look and fierce action sequences. I was a little bit disappointed though because she mostly just yells in this movie. Don't get me wrong...she's full-on action. There just isn't very much dialogue. Really good CGI. The monsters look super scary. Some cool weapons. I hear that there are some accurate game mechanics that will please the video game fans. I heard that the director actually went to the game designers to see what they thought of the film and they gave him the thumbs up. If you're going to watch this movie, see it on the largest screen possible.

THINGS I DIDN'T LIKE: The big plot? To survive. Seriously, that's it. Superfast, over-the-top action scenes that make it hard to see what's going on. Within a 10 second period, there are quite a few cuts which is super annoying. The movie mostly consists of fighting sound effects and screaming. Oh....and monsters. The singing...not that great. I would love to have seen more of Ron Pearlman. A bunch of characters emerge out of nowhere but we aren't told much about them, nor get to know any of them. The ending definitely hints at a sequel. Do we want that?

I was expecting this to be a run of the mill awful action film with one note performances, but surprisingly I was entertained, although I'd say not a great film, but in some ways it kind of knows that.







The effects are pretty enjoyable, like almost similar to Jurassic Park. Mila Jovovich and Tony Jaa do play off each other quite well, and both are really at action. Ron Perlman is also good in his supporting role. I never played the game in which this is based, but i'm sure it's every bit has entertaining.

I'd rather a video game movie blow through the storyline and get to the action instead of trying to explain every detail and every character. Some things only make sense in a video game. This gave me the goods. Intense monster battles, hand to hand combat, explosions and even a cat pirate! Plus Mila Jovovich, Tony Jaa & Ron Pearlman. Give me the sequel!

This has great potential to be a franchise. Great casting. Problem I have is they put a 2-3 hour movie in 90 minutes. I think they should have planned on making it a 3 part movie. With the cast alone it would do well.

So much negative reviews by trolls that didnt even watch the film. the monsters r terrifying realistic, full of fun actions, fantastic chemistry between milla & tony jaa. critics giving this 3/10 and wonder woman 1984 a 8/10 is unbelievable, everything about this film is far superior. and yes milla can act, deal with it haters.

If you want non-stop action and humans fighting aliens, then this is a great ride. If you want soldiers missing loved ones, character development, talk of fighting for a cause, long pauses, romance, then pick another movie. Milla's best role and movie that I've seen in a long while.

Good entertainment all the way through. Excellent visuals and sound in the AVX theater. I can't wait to watch it at home when it becomes available.

It is as entertaining as it can get! Enjoyed every bit of it. As a fan from MH2 wish they could bring back some detail from the past but can't complain there. Glad I watched in the theater, the special effect was spot on. Bravo

I've seen this movie twice and both time I really enjoyed it. It has a lot of action. Totally recommend it. It's better than Wonder Woman 84

Don't listen to the bad reviews, This movie was waaaay above expectation. It is a fun wild action packed ride from the beginning to the end. I went to the theater thinking I'll watch another cheesy Resident Evil movie with bad CGI, but no the CGI were fantastic. Alot of really good action scenes and some other intense scenes. I didn't even know this is based on a game, but I heard the game fans loved it. Monster movie fans even loved it more. You will not regret watching this on the big screen, trust me!

As a fan of the Monster Hunter series I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. The monsters were fantastic and it was a delight to see them on screen. As far as the acting was concerned the relationship/interaction between Mila and the nameless "Hunter" felt organic and humorous in equal parts. You may not find tremendous depths to the characters in this film but it was still enjoyable regardless

This movie may not wow the critics but it's perfectly entertaining and fun! Seems like someone took all the best parts of a science fiction adventure movie and threw them all together. No it's not much of a plot but who cares. AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME
