Sequel-bait, with a high price tag.

If you're a fan of the original games, I can't blame you for a certain level of animosity toward this...it's fun enough I guess if you're watching at home, but again, that's me not playing the games.

A rip-roaring sci-fi/fantasy adventure that has some serious Western vibes to it as well, Monster Hunter may have some rough edges, but as a whole, it's an enjoyable and high-energy adaptation that delivers up some big-time fun.

Monster Hunter is red meat to any cynical moviegoer of the modern age looking for exhibit A. It's been commodified and globalized to the point of nonidentity.

Anderson stays within his interests as a filmmaker, preferring the creation of eye candy over telling an exciting story.
January 12, 2021
A film that is all about spectacle. There is no need to ask questions or wonder about certain aspects of the plot: This is another dimension populated with monsters, that's all you need to know. [It] asks you to let every fantastical second wash over you.

The brand makes an ideal canvas for Anderson to unleash carnage.

Looking fabulous and mean and mighty unclean Milla does war with the beasts in a lovely, noisy entertainment that reminds us, when there's so much bleating about the need for strong female leads, that she's been working that side of the street since 2002.

Loud, violent video game adaptation is mostly forgettable.

What does merit taking seriously is the screen presence of Jovovich -- an action icon easily up there with Keanu Reeves, in some respects her male equivalent.

Entertaining, likeable and committed to its own daft internal logic... More please.

Monster Hunter is a CGI spectacle.
December 29, 2020
Somehow, it's both action-packed and boring.
December 28, 2020
There's nothing especially original about Monster Hunter as a creature feature or a buddy movie or a fish-out-of-water story.
December 28, 2020
Did nothing for me.
December 26, 2020
Another prime example of the medium not translating to the screen in a coherent manner, instead exploding on the big screen in an incomprehensible mess that recycles most of what we've already seen in countless sci-fi actioners prior.
December 25, 2020
Lean, loud, and formally satisfying.
December 24, 2020
[Anderson] embraces the structures and conceits of the genre while tuning them to his own idiosyncratic interests (maps, caves, helping Milla Jovovich look really cool, etc).
December 24, 2020
Big, noisy dumb fun. That's pretty much it. [Full review in Spanish]

Monster Hunter is exactly what you think it is going to be, nothing more, and certainly nothing less, and I'm okay with that.
