For what it's worth, this movie isn't half bad. (by Naylie)
First off, Lemmie tell you guys something important. If you have read my review on Kung Fu Panda, you'll know that it's a true fact Dreamworks have started working on animation for quite some time now since 11 years ago in 1998, that includes their first computer animated movie Shrek and then from where on there, they give us unforgettable moments and fun but very lovable characters to watch.But, as the more we get into CGI and much less of traditionally hand drawn animation in the 21st century, our love for animated movies might of wear out; and then there's Monsters Vs. <more>
Aliens.To start off, let's just say I thought Shark Tale and Bee Movie was better before I saw this, not that I'm complaining but it needs a little bit more work. The film starts off with a beautiful young woman named Susan Murphy play by the wonderful loving Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon, getting married to a weather reporter young man from the news named Derek Dietl play by Paul Rudd who you might recognize his work from I Love You Man, Role Models, and Knocked Up. He's not a very hard guy to spot if you're familiar with the voice in this movie.Their wedding goes out fine before she gets hit by a meteor and grows into a 49 foot giant size monster named Ginormica Funny name if you ask me . That's when she gets send by a little place called Area 51 from a General named W.R. Monger voiced by 24 action star Kiefer Sutherland. His voice is really hard to realize when you're watching the film cause it's very rough around the edges when he speaks. and meets three monsters.B.O.B. play by Seth Rogen, who course lend his voice before in Horton Hears A Who and Kung Fu Panda a silly goofy little blob. A green swimming monster can't remember what type he was suppose to be called The Missing Link whose voiced by Will Arnett who also was in Horton Hears a Who with Seth Rogen and of course a human scientist with the size of a cockroach head named Dr. Cockroah Ph. D voiced by Hugh Laurie who is quite known for his role of that crazy thriller horror show House Their world suddenly becomes in huge danger when a four eyed alien from outer space plans to take over the world so it's up to Susan aka Ginormica and her new friends to save the day! For what it's worth, the movie isn't half bad, but you may want to think it over when you're watching a movie like this. I really personally thought it was gonna suck when I first saw the previews and trailers, but then the more I look at it, I began to realize it couldn't be half bad because Dreamworks has given us a bunch of laughable movies we can watch over and over. Besides Shrek and Kung Fu Panda, there's also Madagascar 1 and 2, Over the Hedge, The Prince of Egypt, The Road to El Dorado, Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron and Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas.I know there's a little bit more than that, but I don't wanna waste the rest of my review spamming a list of Dreamworks movies. So if you're really into Sci-Fi stuff, then this movie would be for you! If not, well...there's always something else better to watch. Would I ever recommended for people to watch this film? I might and I might not, but it's their choice. Not mine!
I saw this movie in 3D, and after that I know that it's another DreamWorks classic. The film is about Susan Murphy, A young Californian woman, who got hit by a radioactive meteor maded out of a substance called quantonium on her wedding day, causing her to mutate and grow to a height of 49' 11 1/2". Now she is immediately labeled a monster, renamed "Ginormica," and sent to a top-secret prison facility headed by General W.R. Monger and containing other monsters: B.O.B. , a brainless, indestructible gelatinous blob; Dr. Cockroach, Ph.D., a mad scientist with the head <more>
and abilities of a cockroach; the Missing Link, an amphibious fish-ape hybrid; and Insectosaurus, a colossal grub that is even larger than Susan. The monsters are forbidden to have any contact with the outside world; while the other monsters have been living contentedly with this lifestyle for the past 50 years. Poor Susan feels incredibly isolated and wishes to return to her old life; that is until an alien named Gallaxhar detects the quantonium radiation emanating from Earth and deploys a gigantic robotic probe to find it and extract it from its source - Susan. And so, General W.R. Monger on a desperate order from the president , calls on the monster crew into action to combat the aliens and save the world from imminent destruction. I don't have a favorite scene as I said many times , because I love the WHOLE film - from beginning to end, and I love the lovely, bad-a** Ginormica.
Monsters vs. Aliens was yet another great movie that I've seen. I felt kind of sorry for Susan when she became a giant, but now, I'm glad that she's happy with her new life. The four other monsters looked rather cutesy, especially Insectosaurus, who looks somewhat like a hamster to me. Also, there were some things I totally didn't expect in this movie. Dr. Cockroach Phd. saying "OMG!" surprised me for two reasons: 1. He was very formal most of the time; 2. So far, I've NEVER heard any character in a movie say "OMG!", instead of "Oh my God!". I <more>
thought Insectosaurus was male and died, but it turned out that he/she is alive and turned into a feminine-looking butterfly/moth. I guess this insect creature was actually a caterpillar of some sort. Anyways, the ending was good. It was another happy ending that I was hoping for, and it seemed to imply that there may be a sequel. I hope it'll still be great when it comes out on DVD.
Pretty Innocent, And Fun To Watch (by ccthemovieman-1)
This was a pleasant surprise: a nice, feel-good film that is pretty innocent and sports the usual beautiful Dreamworks art. The artwork and colors are magnificent. I say "surprise" because it did not get great reviews. Thus, I wasn't expecting the quality film I got.The good guys - the "monsters" are typically-likable as you see in other animated films of today. They are pretty funny, too, diverse "monsters" like "Dr. Cockroach, B.O.B and The Missing Link. They, along with "Ginormica," who does her impression of the 1950s sci-fi character, <more>
"The F-Foot Woman," are appealing and fun to watch. I'm tempted to describe this movie as "innocent," because it's such a nice story that doesn't have all the innuendos some other animated films have, yet still will make most adults laugh in many spots because there is some good humor that kids wouldn't get. "Monsters Versus Aliens" shows one doesn't need "edginess" in every movie to have adults enjoy the kids' film, too.Chances are you'll find this movie a lot better than you thought. Give it a shot.
Finally someone understands the use of 3D goggles. (by morbidasperge-1)
The latest effort from Dreamworks Animation is among their best efforts to date and, for the first time, I see them stepping ahead of Pixar.What a better set-up for an animated film than Earth when it is about to be invaded by a squid-like alien with his fair amount of bad eyes and his army of clones? You get to meet a group of monsters in their containment area somewhere deep within Area fifty***. The Creature From the Black Lagoon Missing Link , the Blob BOB , The Fly Dr. Cockroach , Mothra Â– one of Godzilla's enemies Insectosaurus and the 50 foot Woman Ginormica/Susan Â– who is <more>
only 49ft by the way Â– are all covered here. One may wonder where is the Giant Killer Tomato or the Invisible Man but this handful of monsters are enough to nullify the Alien menace.The movie itself is pure enjoyment: Colbert as the President is hilarious, Laurie is an excellent mad scientist and I could not point a single flaw in the cast but, it is definitely Seth Rogen who shines voicing BOB, the inform mass of gelatinous goo. He adds layers of volume to the character and brings his own goofiness with him.The action is well paced, you don't perceive any lengths or unnecessary moments, even better, you don't feel there is missing any either. As an added bonus, the movie does not feature horrible cover versions of musical gems like in some other Dreamworks Animation movies.Monsters VS Aliens raises the bar for animated movies when it comes to technical achievement. It is the first film I see that makes an adequate use of 3D. The computer rendered 3D world is seemingly the only suitable setup for stereoscopic vision as it failed to impress beyond 'Oh Well!' when used with flesh and bones actors and filmed decors.If you are heading to see this movie, make sure it's in 3D, the movie itself is worth seeing no matter the viewing experience but what really makes it special is the rendering of everything in stereoscopy.
Monsters Vs. Aliens is one of Dreamworks Animation best work, it's very fun and entertaining. (by michael11391)
I just saw MvA and it was fun, entertaining & sometimes very funny. It was better than Kung Fu Panda & Madagascar 2, it was one of Dreamworks Animation best. Reese Witherspoon, Hugh Laurie, Will Arnett & Rainn Wilson as the main villain Gallaxhar were great and fun to watch. But Seth Rogen as B.O.B & Stephen Colbert as the President stole the show with memorable characters, they were funny as hell!! I liked the good visuals, the nice 50's look at alien invasions and mainly the action-packed sequences surprised how great the action was in this . It wasn't as funny as I <more>
expected it to be but I still laughed hard out loud a couple times as well a few more laughs at other scenes as well. The action sequences though, is surprisingly well-made and loved it. Monsters Vs. Aliens is like The Incredibles of Dreamworks Animation, The Incredibles is the best & most action-packed feature from Pixar and this Monsters Vs. Aliens from Dreamworks Animation more action than Kung Fu Panda, in my opinion . Monsters Vs. Aliens is a very fun, entertaining, very funny & action-packed and one of Dreamworks Animation best features yet!!
As far as Dreamworks movies go, it is not as good as How to Train Your Dragon, Prince of Egypt and Shrek, but for me Monsters vs. Aliens is one of their better efforts. True, the story is predictable and there isn't much character development. That said, the animation is beautiful, with well modelled characters and bold bright colours and backgrounds. Not to mention the battle on the Golden Gate bridge, which was stunning. The writing is also very funny and smart, the references to Close Encounters, ET and Men in Black are clever, the music is fun and the characters while not having much <more>
development are likable and charming. The voice acting is also solid and fit their characters well, Reese Witherspoon is a nice surprise and Hugh Laurie especially is fun. All in all, very good fun, not a classic, but enjoyable family entertainment. 8/10 Bethany Cox
Cool Monsters in funniest DreamWorks animation to date (by Stampsfightclub)
Susan gets transformed into a 50ft woman on her wedding day and as a result is forced to join a group of monsters to fight an oncoming threat from an approaching alien.Wall-E, Toy Story, The Incredibles and Monsters Inc all show how fantasy comedy and storytelling combined can work. All Oscar winners that are not DreamWorks pictures. Pixar therefore are on somewhat of a role and the arrival of Shrek and Kung Fu Panda have been the closet rivals ever so could this promising picture depicting the most famous of legends finally top the best animators in the business? For this year that certainly <more>
remains to be seen after a fairly disappointing trailer for next Pixar release Up! But Rob Letterman's release is certainly enthralling viewing for any age, if perhaps not going to rattle the cages of Pixar's seemingly unflappable reputation.What this picture does is entertain from start to finish with a coolly funny plot that maintains the comic without diving too deep into the weepy soap styled animations that can be the knockdown of so many others. When the plot feels like heading that way up pops one of the cool looking monsters with an in-joke or crazy physical act to keep the laughs coming which is a massive relief as when the emotions hit this film doesn't handle all too well. Susan's overwhelming emotions and The Missing Link's unfit shape make you want to hide your head. But do not fret as this is surely the funniest picture DreamWorks have ever mustered.Shrek had all the attributes for great family viewing. The physical humour of eating disgusting food and Eddie Murphy's Donkey are classic and the emotional core on the concept of appearance is almost tear worthy. Monsters Vs Aliens emotional core may waver but the hilarity from the monsters is beautiful. The physical attributes contributed by BOB are exquisite and the Cockroach's mad attitude towards science is manic humour where even Susan has her moments. Go Monsters! It is an obvious one sided film where you will always route for Monsters as the stereotypical and over dramatic evil alien Gallaxhar worst villain name ever? will have you hating him each time on screen.The bizarre representation of the President is often funny if way overboard but the kids will love it.The intertextuality of the film survives on classic Sci-Fi films such as The Blob. Not to mention the inclusion of monsters away from the real world feels Men in Black. But these are handled well through some fine physical humour and an easily accessible plot that will make kids laugh and adults intrigued by the sophisticated action and political agendas.
A fun family comedy sci-fi movie (by breakdownthatfilm-blogspot-com)
Having two different types of creatures come onto the same screen is an interesting idea. Monsters are organisms created by humans. Many are from some malfunction in scientific procedure that led to the disfigurement of the original organism. Aliens, as we know of from previous science fiction films, are organisms that are not from this planet. But what really makes this film unique, is how it tells the story of finding one's place in the world. Even if you're over twenty stories tall.The characters in this film are very amiable. Reese Witherspoon lends her voice to the character of <more>
Susan Murphy, who later becomes Ginormica a really tall woman , and finds herself in an area she's never heard of before. It is there, that she meets with several other creatures that were all created by a freak accident. The few other creatures that Murphy encounters have their voices through other great actors as well.Hugh Laurie plays Dr. Cockroach who is really fun to listen to because of how he talks. Plus the fact that anything he tries to make doesn't work. Will Arnett is funny as The Missing Link because he always talks about how strong he is but can't really do much. And last is B.O.B who is voiced by Seth Rogen. B.O.B is possibly one of the funniest characters on screen just because how flexible the character of B.O.B. is physically and mentally . And what's great is that there's almost a funny line for every character in this film, except for the more sentimental parts of course.The other thing that I really appreciate is how this movie makes references to movies released to the older generations, not to mention they're all from the same year as well! For example, Ginormica is a reference to the film, Attack of the 50-Foot Woman 1958 , while Dr. Cockroach is almost and exact replica to The Fly 1958 , and B.O.B. alludes to The Blob 1958 . It is quite clear to what this film was inspired from and it shows that the film crew paid extra attention to the details. It's an honorable tribute if you ask me.The only thing that could've been done better was the actual comedic parts themselves. Yes this movie was funny but when I watched the trailer to this film, it seemed like it was going to have even bigger laughs once I saw the whole film. Unfortunately, it didn't. I laughed often but I felt like I wasn't laughing enough. I wanted more from the screenplay and I wasn't getting what I expected. But in the end, I walk out satisfied knowing it was a fun movie in general.Dreamworks has created a CGI adventure that will not only be fun for kids but also for adults to watch as well. With its goofy script, and sharp visuals, Monsters Vs Aliens is a family film worth seeing.
