Monster Hunter a world of dangerous and powerful monsters that rule their domain with dedly ferocity. “Monster Hunter” it’s almost like Anderson and Jovovich get so bored that they just decide to start the wackier sequel earlier. Spotted briefly in the prologue, a scenery-chewing Ron Perlman drops into the action accompanied by a team of hunters that includes a giant cat who acts like a human. And in this moment you realize that all of “Monster Hunter” needed to be this weird. It’s not a great film at any point, but there’s style and creativity in the last act that’s a stark contrast to the dull noise that came before.
The Monster Hunter movie ending answered a bunch of questions – including who wins in a fight between a dragon and a helicopter – but left a bunch more dangling, either waiting to be answered by a sequel or for fans to connect the dots elsewhere.
|Monster Hunter has just enough gore and brutish fiends to cause a few nightmares in young or sensitive viewers|
|Lacking narrative direction and even pacing, Monster Hunter is yet another soulless video game adaptation that drowns in its own inadequacy. |
|As video game-based movies go, this isn’t the worst, because spouses Anderson and Jovovich know what they’re doing — but it’s still a forgettable compilation of violent CGI effects.|
