Monsters is the directorial and writing debut of Gareth Edwards, and it stars Scoot McNairy and Whitney Able in a British science fiction about a photographer who's hired to bring back the boss's daughter to the United States from Mexico, and they have to walk through the infected zone where they're monsters there. When I was going on a vacation, I tried to download some films to keep myself occupied, but didn't have enough time to do so, and I ended up watching this only film that I downloaded a while back, which is cool to see where Gareth Edwards was at from the beginning to when he did Godzilla and Star Wars, so let's get started in this. The acting is good, although not special, which is something that Gareth Edwards is becoming well-known for in terms of the negative aspects, and it's a good idea that it's an actual couple that plays the main characters as it makes the dialogue feel more genuine and real when they are just talking about everyday stuff. As people already know, or already told other people, that there's not much monsters in this, which is another aspect that the director is strangely known for too like in Godzilla, it's Godzilla itself that isn't in it too much, and in Rogue One, it's Darth Vader. So as to say what the premise is like, think of it as a The Road with a little bit of Before Sunrise, which can turn off some viewers that weren't expecting a romance out of this. The special effects on the creatures look really good for a low budget, and the ending is a very sad and sweet one that is not quite something that you see in a monster film. So while there were some character development on McNairy's character, Whitney's character is a cardboard one as you don't know much about her character, but you do care about them because of the conversations that they have. The pacing can be very slow for some viewers to handle, and there were some moments that didn't really go anywhere which felt meandering to the plot even though it's short. It has some thought-provoking moments, but I feel like I've seen this before in better monster films. Monsters is a really good movie that I'm glad Gareth Edwards got himself into the Godzilla film, which turned out to be a better film.
