Plot: Six years after Earth has suffered an alien invasion, a cynical journalist agrees to escort a shaken American tourist through an infected zone in Mexico to the safety of the U.S. border. Runtime: 94 mins Release Date: 03 Dec 2010
Amazing movie. A real adventure film, the way they don't make them anymore. Sometimes it felt like a travel documentary, very real, very exciting and realistic. The actors are very good, better than most high paid stars of today. And the girl are beautiful in a very natural way. She's also a wonderful actress.I'ts important to understand that this isn't your ordinary monster movie. You very seldom see them at all, but you feel their presence. Each step of the way, when we follow the couple on their way back from Mexico to USA, we are with them. We are more like travel <more>
companions on a journey than viewers of a movie.The CGI may lack a bit, but that's not important. Considering the extremely low budget, it's just amazing that this movie exist. The production values are still better than with most high profile movies. Do yourself a favor and See this movie for what it is. Go on a journey into a world that is realistic, exciting - and maybe, just maybe, possible.
Probably the most important task of art is to cast events around us into a different, but personal perspective. This movie does this job perfectly. Can you create barriers against immigration, which is just a natural process of the stronger taking the living space of the weaker? It plays on the US-Mexican border, stupid! Watching the loving families and the dysfunctional relations in the movie, what does really make this difference? Have you ever felt that by observing nature your learn something about our own love? Who are the Monsters of the title? Or what about that haunting shot of <more>
watching the proud pinnacle of human engineering from an overgrown pyramid - a pinnacle of that-time human engineering? Or the eery scare of not finding the home they were hoped for? Just a few thoughts which are triggered in me by imagery, emotion and ideas, all cramped into the best movie I have seen in 2010 so far. Use your brain and find your own gems here, because there surely are some.I truly value the small budget approach, as it does not force the director to satisfy Godzilla fans, over-represented in the reviews here. If you liked D9 because of exploding humans and not its precise analysis of racial hatred, walk away. There are no cool weapons neither scientists giving briefing on monster anatomy in this movie. You cannot please everybody, and probably affordable film-making will produce movies which fill special niches, and does not aim to get all bets from the table.This is good art, without compromises.
I went into this film having had it recommended by a friend of mine. He only said that I needed to see it, and that it was pretty unique. Being a Sci-Fi fan to the point of quoting lines and debate on sub-plot in other films, I'm already pretty jaded when it comes to a good Sci-Fi film. This is possibly one of the best films I've seen all year, without a doubt.I give newcomer Gareth Edwards a hell of a lot of credit for this. It is just rife with sub text and understated emotional tension, that really draws away from the 15 story monsters roaming the screen from time to time. In the <more>
end, this film uses the monsters as a backdrop for a very human story of people with lives left in another place, and it does so without using flashy effects or unnaturally driven character actions.The movie moves about at a fairly even, all be it, patient pace. You have plenty of time to come to terms with the world being unfolded before you.Unlike some of the other special effects extravaganzas that we were given this year, the mere fact that he accomplished this film on a budget of 15 grand is astounding. Especially considering that the cinematography is just breath taking in certain shots. Many films, those more driven to the Drama genre, carry a certain weight of importance with them, and this film pulls of the very real sense of making you understand that this is possibly one of the most significant events in human history without beating you over the head with it. The real communication of the ideas expressed here is just brilliantly done, and never feels forced or out of the natural elements of the film.Its rare to see a Sci Fi film with real subtlety. It feels like most run the median between overstated idealism and totally soulless special effects theater. It may be that I stand alone on this, but the balance here is perfect and the characters really well played. Both leads here put in really good performances, and carry themselves all the way through the film with great delivery. From start to finish, I felt like this film immersed me in a world very much dealing with something entirely new, and no one really knew how to handle it.I hope to see a hell of a lot more from Edwards. I would say that this film is very much Darren Aronofsky-esquire. It shows vast potential and that this is someone who commits to getting quality out of every part of his films. If James Cameron's Avatar is like watching a team of engineers assemble a luxury pleasure cruiser, this is like watching one really talented man carve a beautiful sailboat with one log and a carving knife. The pleasure craft has its place, however, I would watch and own the smaller boat because it has an immense amount of soul and took dedication and skill to do it.Go into this with an open mind, and take the ride. You will not regret it.
Less like a geographical reboot of D-9 and more like an art-house Cloverfield or a blockbuster Stalker (by foamhands713)
While there have been plenty of valid comparisons made between this film and last year's sci-fi hit District - 9 due solely to the fact that the two films share an admittedly similar global concept; that of aliens landing and being contained within a restricted zone as a forced but entertaining allegory for racial disharmony. There the zone was in central South Africa and here it is the northernmost section of Mexico, the borderlands. I think the media have missed the much more obvious filmic connections. To my mind this film is in fact less like a geographical reboot of D-9 and more <more>
like an art-house Cloverfield or perhaps a blockbuster Stalker Andrei Tarkovsky's epically sparse sci-fi classic . While the concept and metaphor certainly match that of District – 9 the closest the execution sways it further towards a combination of the latter two examples.Instead of attempting to tell the story of a fictional universe using a number of cipher characters like D-9, this film instead tells the story of its two leads by way of its alien infestation. The titular monsters certainly are an integral force in crafting and driving the films narrative but they are not its real focus, this is where the two films differ. Instead we are made to follow American investigate journalist Colbert who is tasked by his employer to find and then accompany his daughter through the infected zone and into the United States before the beginning of the creature's active season.It's a sparse plot and one that leads to a lot less action than you would expect, but it does work as the spinal centre of the film. Instead of confronting the creatures at every turn, discovering their origin, their weakness, their queen and then eventually using their knowledge to develop a dues ex machina and save the day like the big damn heroes of every similar film, these two simply exist in the universe like we do ours; as everyday citizens living their everyday lives. That's not to say though that the film is in any way banal; in fact their journey through the zone allows for a lot of stunning shots, shocking stories and silent terror, it's just that these occur in a different tense then we are used to. We are, like the protagonist Colbert, journalists in this world; we follow in the wake of the story, catching occasional glimpses of it from afar but mainly focusing on who and what it leaves behind.The monsters, their destruction and the alternate world that they destroy are all filtered through the protagonists before they reach us upon the screen. It is their reactions to the events that elicit responses in us and their responses that in turn become our emotions. It is essential that the two leads be well crafted in order for this method to work. Thankfully then, they are; Hitting that perfect ratio of realism, stereotype, flaw and likability. They are the kind of characters that you would happily follow within the comparatively banal confines of a drama and so here, in this realm of heightened stakes, they become doubly interesting. The real surprise of the film for me was just how enjoyable, and oftentimes moving, it was to take this trip with the leads; to the point that by the time the ending rolled around I almost echoed their calls of 'I don't want to go home'. That dreaded disillusionment, the return to drudgery after a distinctly powerful event is something I can really understand but it is something uncommon to see in cinemas. Edwards isn't the only person to be thanked for this though; while his writing is great it's the two lead performances that are really essential and I think these two will be ones too watch in the future.While I've made it quite clear that personally I preferred the human side of the story - that I could take or leave the monsters in comparison – i know there are many others around here who will not feel the same, others that are in it for the monsters Spaulds certainly comes to mind . While I wouldn't advise taking that particular approach with this particular film, I don't think any of you creature features that do will be disappointed with what you see – and yes, you do see. The creatures are as well designed and animated as the characters. They feel totally alien to this world yet retain a certain sense of plausibility, as if they could feasibly belong to some other. Their power is also very well handled, being threatening enough in every situation but invincible in none. There is then a consistency to them that doesn't exist in a lot of other creatures, which sometimes feel like they are acting in accordance with the plot rather than their own rules or reality. While this may get some of you salivating I have to say again that well designed or no these creatures are little more than an external force, they exist off screen much more than on.It is then, an ironically titled film I guess because the Monsters of the title are anything but central. I think the real test should be whether or not you would go and see this film were it called 'Humans'. Those that do, more specifically those that make their way all the way through to the final act, will be in for a treat as the film has a handful of utterly sublime moments. The ending itself was a little abrupt but I think it's pretty clever, probably warranting a second watch. Definitely warranting a first watch.
Less action than expected, but 9/10 imagery, acting, and direction. (by jephbennett)
The first 3 reviews said it all. Amazing movie for a $15k budget. Amazing shots and scenery, good plot line, great acting from leads. Decent monsters and action, when it occurs. I'm starting to think it's the soundtrack that makes a movie seem "big". This movie's eerie sounds, and tension building strings draw you in, like a blockbuster. Can't believe this guy wrote, directed, edited and did the efx. A++++And ignore the whiny babies crying about this and that. They'd rather watch blood pour out of a corpse than a decent piece of acting. As long as you don't <more>
expect another Cloverfield, you should be surprised by a unique cinematic experience. ;
A beautiful, quiet, poetic movie more about places, than monsters. (by dioditto)
A beautiful, quiet, poetic movie more about places, than monsters. The film starts off a bit gimmicky - with some Cloverfield like action sequence, then it settles into the main storyline, and slowly builds on the characters, and places, the emotional landscape they experienced. It almost reminded me of "Motorcycle Diary" but with occasional monsters. Actings were superb, very natural, not forced with main characters undeniable likeness to Skeet Ulrich & Cameron Diaz. The pacing of the movie is quite slow at times, definitely not for people looking for action. The special <more>
effects are sprinkled sparingly throughout the movie, where its needed to great effect. All in all, an engrossing, quiet movie to enjoy.
NASA accidentally solves border security with lightbright octopi from space. (by g8jedi)
OK this gets a strong 7.9 on my trait average scale that I just made up, but on an insanely low budget of something around $15,000 dollars, this film deserves everyone's attention. The plot: NASA accidentally solves border security with lightbright octopi from space. In the first 3 minutes of this film we learn that a probe carrying samples of alien life has broken up in reentry showering larges swaths of Mexico with debris that eventually manifests in giant octopus monsters. The militaries of the US and Mexico do their best to contain the "infected zone" and kill the monsters <more>
with heavy firepower. The story starts about 6 years after the monsters show up and the battle to keep the aliens at bay rages on. We're introduced to a photographer hoping to snap a picture of one of the monsters up close who gets roped into escorting the boss's daughter to the coast and back to her Fiancé' after she's injured in a monster attack. The pair, played by real-life couple Scoot McNairy and Whitney Able, are stuck south of the infected area on an increasingly lawless overland trip through central America trying to find a way back to the safety of the States. The post-apocalyptic feel of the areas destroyed by the monsters make for some of the most memorable shots in this film. The Director/Writer/DP/VFX Artist, Gareth Edwards has shot a really beautiful film that revels in guerrilla style shooting and constantly shifting focuses helping push the subtle urgency of the travelers' situation. The monster effects are believable and Edwards deserves due credit for some fun visuals but he successfully directs our attention to the human story rather than letting the monsters be the main character. This is not a traditional action sci-fi movie though there are certainly heart-pounding, jaw-dropping scenes of mayhem and military firepower; it's a character driven story set in a sci-fi disaster monster movie and it works. Don't go in thinking it is District 9 or Cloverfield. It was certainly not what I expected, but that turned out to be a good thing in this case. Facts from the Director Q&A: -Filmed on a Sony EX3 with a Nikon 50 MM Lens -Used almost exclusively natural light except for a couple tiny LED lights for when it was pitch black -Effects were done in Adobe CS4, editing in Premiere -The majority of filming was shot with just a sound guy the director and the 2 main characters -Look for this to come out in Late October via Magnolia Pictures in the US and November in the UK
This was the film I was most looking forward to during my one day excursion to Frightfest and it was everything I hoped for. Monsters takes place several years after a NASA space probe that has collected alien micro-organisms has crashed in Mexico, turning much of the country into a walled in no-go zone. New life forms have developed there, among them gigantic, tentacled creatures who have devastated much of the country. A photo journalist who reports on the crisis takes on the job to get the newspaper publishers daughter back to the US. After their tickets for the last ferry out get stolen, <more>
they have to make their way across the "infected" zone. Many people will be expecting a Distric 9 or Cloverfield style sci-fi action film from the trailer, but this is more like Before Sunrise meets Godzilla, with the emphasis on the love story. The British director gave a Q&A after the screening and he said he was aiming to make an offbeat romantic indie film like Lost in Translation against an unusual backdrop. It's certainly an interesting genre-hybrid and I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like it. This was shot on a tiny budget by its director, who then did all the effects by himself at on a computer, and it looks like a gazillion bucks Hollywood movie. With effects technology having become so accessible, this maybe where the future of genre films lies as Hollywood blockbusters become ever more interchangeable. Monsters is a powerfully atmospheric, beautiful looking film with great locations and the effects are excellent, but this is primarily a road move and a love story. There isn't an awful lot of monster action in the film and only a couple of scenes that actively involve the creatures, though they feel ever present via the devastation visible everywhere. I could sense some of the more hardcore horror fans who were cheering during the gory I Spit On Your Grave remake that went before, getting restless. The writing is pretty good, if not quite in the same league as top indie film romances it aims for. The films only failing is that for an indie romance, the characters are never quite as well explored as they would be in a Lost in Translation or Before Sunrise. The two main characters could have been a little more memorable, though the two lead actors are likable enough and have the chemistry required that made me want them to get together the director revealed he cast two actors who are a couple for real . In the end the thing that makes the film stand out is the fact that it takes such an unusual approach to the giant monster movie genre. By treating its genre trappings in an low key, almost subordinate way, it feels very real. The giant squid like monsters are very impressive in the few scenes where they do make an appearance and the characters and story were involving enough to draw me in. In the way it foregrounds the characters it's a genuinely unusual special effects film the, type Hollywood used to make in the 70s, when Close Encounters was as a much a film about a wrenching marriage break down as it was about UFOs. It has stayed with me unlike few films I've seen this year and I can't wait to see it again.
Satisfying movie, if you get what sci fi really is (by BillK)
I first heard about this movie in a radio interview, so I was aware that it was very low budget. But lately "sci fi" movies have been all about escalating action to the point of absurdity. Classic sci fi is about people reacting to new/mysterious/dangerous situations. This movie has that, with interesting protagonists. It has echos of Sin Nobre and El Norte, and yes, the context of "alien substitution" echoes District 9. But it's not a re-make, and it's consistently entertaining, with a straight-ahead narrative. There are only a few moments where a shock reaction <more>
is telegraphed. A big studio would have made this story into an effects extravaganza. But in my opinion it's more effective showing limited interaction with the aliens.If you can handle real sci fi -- movies without the excesses of Transformers or 2012 -- this sci fi will satisfy.
