MONSTERS (2010 UK)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.4|5.0 Starsììì

Monsters—a budget film with an attitude—really tries from a fairly good start with American Armed Forces driving a Hummer down an empty, darkened street where they encounter an alien. Other soldiers evacuate what appear to be injured civilians. Then the film cuts several times for the Director and Actors’ credits. Then we witness a missile heading toward the alien. The film cuts and we are given the film’s title, Monsters.

Storyline

Aliens crash land in Mexico and new life forms begin spreading across Mexico.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Gareth Edwards for directing efforts. Thank you to Executive Producers Nick Love, Rupert Preston, and Nigel Williams for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Andrew Kaulder (Scoot McNairy), Sam Wynden (Whitney Able), Ticket Seller (Mario Zuniga Benavides), Homeless Woman (Annalee Jefferies), Marine (Justin Hall), Marine (Ricky Catter), Marine (Paul Archer), Marine (Kerry Valderrama), and Marine (Jonathan Winnford).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. It’s a good alien drama for audiences hooked on extraterrestrial life stories.
