[7.00/10] Monsters vs. Aliens (2009)

Monsters vs. Aliens (2009)

Short review: "Monsters Vs. Aliens" isn't a classic by any stretch of the imagination, but is ludicrously good fun if you're a fan of sci-fi. There isn't a whole lot in the way of story and character development, but suffice it to say, it serves its purpose. What makes "Monsters vs. Aliens" such an enjoyable film is how it works as a comedy. The pop culture references are still present, but I found them to be more clever and funny this time around, and in much smaller amounts. Technically, the film holds it's own, and at the same time manages to resist the temptation to overwhelm the viewer with flash/bang trickery. The monsters all have their own endearing qualities that children and adults alike will love - while the aliens thankfully fall into the category of 'so smart they're stupid' that made the likes of 'Mars Attacks!' so much fun. The vocal acting is competent and manages to keep disbelief at bay for the best part. "Monsters vs Aliens" is far from amazing, but it provides fun entertainment for all ages.

  • My Rating: 7.00/10
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 72% (6.4/10)
  • IMDb: 6.8/10
