Monster Hunter – Action
Category – Movie
Content – Artemis and her team are on a routine military check, when they encounter a strange electric storm. They seem to get pushed through the storm; however, land in a desert unlike the one they know. There are giant monsters here who take out Artemis’s team one by one. As the only survivor, she comes across a Hunter who (eventually) helps her. And in return she helps him. You see, to get to the oasis, you need two people to kill the giant beast that stands in their path. After long amounts of training, they are able to push past the giant monster and continue on a journey back to the tower and this electric storm. They actually run into the Hunter’s people, and together they all try and get Artemis back to her home. While this all sounds very exciting, and quite frankly, should be, this film lacks in the excitement value. While watching some of the sequences, I found myself pretty bored and in the end, very disappointed in this film. I had high hopes…Alas that was not met. This scores a 5 out of 10.
Acting – Milla Jovovich and Tony Jaa did a good job with their acting. I guess the writers needed something more for them, as the scenes just lacked in enthusiasm. Too bad, as both of these actors are extremely good and mostly fun to watch. Something was just way off here. And seeing Ron Perlman is some crazy wig was not only comical, but sort of disturbing at the same time. All in all, not impressed. Score is 5 out of 10.
Duration – 1 hours 43 mins. This seemed like a lifetime with this film! The chemistry just seemed way off with the actors, so the movie dragged on and on. This gets a 5 out of 10.
TOTAL INDEX for Monster Hunter – 15 out of 30
Recommended Watch – SO disappointed in this movie…I cannot suggest a watch here. Sorry folks, I was just so not impressed by this movie.
