Format: DVD
There have been a few recent science fiction films that have come out that seem to focus on how the characters react to the appearance of an alien life form on Earth. Particularly, one thinks of District 9. Cloverfield, and Skyline as primary examples of this kind of science fiction film making. Monsters is another science fiction film in this vein. The low budgets and no name actors are compensated by the character development and how these characters relate to these nightmarish scenarios of alien life on Earth. In many ways, Monsters may be the best of this grouping in terms of coherent story telling and human interaction.

The premise of Monsters is probably the most plausible due to its simplicity. NASA exploring for life in the universe brings back a sample that unfortunately crashes in Mexico, and in the nursery of Earth, evolves into creating monster life forms. This leads to humanities effort to contain the creatures in some kind of quarantine region. The story of the film revolves around two people, a man and a woman, trying to get back home to the USA by travelling through this quarantined region, and the experiences they encounter.

The film is largely an interaction between the two actors, competently played by Whitney Able and Scoot McNairy, and their reactions to each other whilst they experience the dangers and wonder of the quarantined region. The story in this film is directed and written so well by Gareth Edwards that one does not pay attention to the low budget or the fact that this film is carried by two unknown actors, though I couldn't help constantly thinking during the film that Scoot McNairy reminded me alot of Chris Martin of Coldplay.

One of the best low budget science fiction films I have ever come across.

I would recommend to listen to the making of before you listen to the movie. It makes you appreciate even more this monster-love-road movie.
Impressed by Gareth Edwards director-writer-special effects and a lot more. See what this guy can do when he has a Hollywood budget to work with. Godzilla.

Languid and dreamy, Monsters is not your average alien invasion movie. Director Gareth Edwards, who dreamed up the story and allegedly created all the visual effects on his laptop, says that he wanted to begin where every other monster movie ends. It's a near future, post-invasion world, and it looks incredibly detailed, earthy, and organic. Judging by what's on screen, Monsters appears to be a big budget sci-fi spectacular. It's a remarkable achievement.

After the opening scene it's all downhill from there.This is NOT a monster movie this is a sappy love story.
If you are going to put a review on the front cover of your DVD is should have something to do with what is actually IN the movie. "Greatest Monster Movie Of The Millennium" Well the reviewer who they quoted obviously doesn't watch to many actual monster movies or got his wallet lined for that review.
In short don't waste your money on this piece of crap.

Paid $26.99 + Tax (2-Disc Special Edition) to buy this slow moving Sci-Fi DVD of a developing love tale between a couple who were allow to escape from an alien restricted zone located in the upper part of Mexico below the USA border by a pair of flying octopi. Need I say more!!!
