Monster Hunter Reviews

January 5, 2021
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.

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

We're left to process a Post-it-sized plot, numbing fight sequences and dialogue along the lines of "My God!" and "Aargh!"

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

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.

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.

Maybe some so-bad-it's-good aficionados will embrace "Monster Hunter" as well. But for the rest of us, the only sensible reaction might really be, "Huh? Never mind."

I really wanted to turn my brain off. I certainly did with Monster Hunter, and that really didn't make the movie all that much better.

Say what you will about the often critically derided films in the Resident Evil series, there's at least a sense of style behind them that's entirely missing for the first hour of Monster Hunter.

A film that doesn't even bother to wrap up its own story, instead gesturing vaguely at a hypothetical sequel, is telling you exactly how much you should care about it.

Anderson's latest is exactly what you expect it to be, without any pretense. There's inherent silliness to it all, highlighted by some cheesy writing. Yet you're likely to have a blast anyway.

Very little of "Monster Hunter" makes sense, but it's visually interesting at least and not un-fun to stream at home with a friend, asking questions and cracking jokes along the way.

To be fair, all this movie promises from the start is monsters and hunters, and Anderson delivers both, from the first frame to the credits. But for way too long, the generic title is matched to generic action.

Monster Hunter is all sorts of super-dumb fun.

Not since Paul Giamatti's immortal cameo as the Rhino at the end of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" has a film this bad tried this hard to whet our appetites for more.

Jovovich is our last classic action hero, capable of going toe-to-toe with the greats of the '80s when it comes to delivering cheesy dialogue with a steely glare.
