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.

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.

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.

Lean, loud, and formally satisfying.

[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).

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

There is no greater pleasure in this world than watching Paul W.S. Anderson and Milla Jovovich team up to deliver a spectacle of action.
December 21, 2020
It's hard to say if it's comprehensible to someone who doesn't love the series, but its bombastic action hardly lags during its hour-and-a-half run time.
December 20, 2020
Action sequences are choreographed and edited with a degree of tight conceptual and spatial coherency that puts nearly any Marvel movie to shame.

Monster Hunter is so unapologetically itself, it warms your heart.

Some excellent CGI monsters save the day for this video game adaptation making it watchable for fans of the genre even if storywise much of it is incoherent.
December 18, 2020
It's exactly the movie it ought to be, a video game movie that feels like a video game and a monster movie that's a full-on monster movie in the truest, purest and simplest sense.

Jovovich and Jaa are great in a fun survival adventure that delivers way more pleasure than guilt. [Full Review in Spanish]

It's the formless slog you've come to expect from Anderson, and if you're OK with that then Monster Hunter is definitely worth tracking down.
December 18, 2020
It's not self-aware enough to qualify as camp, or self-satisfied enough to be smug. It simply aims low and delivers, and right now, that's enough.
December 18, 2020
OK yes, it's based on a video game. But Monster Hunter is also fun and elevated (as expected) by the presence of Milla Jovovich, the reigning monarch of video game-based action films.
