Love and Monsters takes some very common tropes from different genres and mixes them all together in a strange, unique world. The result is wholly appealing and sheds new light, for me at least, on O'Brien's leading man potential.

This is a very enjoyable and entertaining movie despite a nonsensical premise. The movie is well structured and acted, and the monsters look real enough, thanks to good computer graphics.

Love and Monsters is reminiscent of the 2013 zom-rom-com Warm Bodies in its confident mixing of, well, love and monsters.

LOVE & MONSTERS is rare, and it could signal a return to more original films that aren't ashamed of their familiarity, yet lean into originality.

As directed by Michael Matthews the story has grit. Emotional bonds, including one with a very smart dog, forge Joel's resolution to move ahead, even after some scary close encounters.

Love and Monsters is a feel good movie in the most absurd of circumstances. You wouldn't necessarily expect to find your heart swell and a multitude of laughs from a wasteland world full of giant monsters but hot damn, Matthews makes it happen.

If this sparks a Giant Crab Cinematic Universe, I'm all for it.

Dylan O'Brien trekking through 80 miles of monster-invaded land to find his girlfriend...sign me up!

It has it all.

O'Brien is an easygoing charmer, handsome without being too showy about it, who gives Joel a pleasantly self-deprecating side.

More eye-catching than cerebral, this feel-good fantasy, conceived and co-written by Brian Duffiels, provides an amusing session.

Nothing too original there, and the CGI-heavy effects go only so far, but we have Dylan O'Brien's semi-can-do hero seeking his love Jessica Henwick when venturing outside invites the subterranean worst of Tremors or Dune.

Fun escapism. (Full Content Review for Parents - Violence, Profanity, etc. - also Available)

A monster movie, a quest adventure, a semi-romance, and a bunch of laughs. What's not to like?

... embraces the inherent absurdity in its premise with an appealing playfulness.

The third act just doesn't have the payoff that you want...
October 30, 2020 feels like they wrote themselves into a corner...

It's silly, but with some depth thrown in.

A lightweight throwback to the PG/PG-13 teen action adventure films I grew up watching, Love and Monsters is a winner.

Terrific fun, a creature feature bursting with heart and optimism and no end of superb special effects, delivering a joyously upbeat adventure story that reminds us in difficult times... there's always hope for a better and brighter tomorrow.
