Monsters vs Aliens is an animated film filled with laughs. Premiered about a month ago, I only got to watch it several days back. =p It was pretty cool actually. The animation was really top class and advance. The storyline was rather direct and typical, hero beats villian thingy. But a good movie to watch non the less.
The story starts of with Susan. She is your average everyday girl, doing her average everyday thing and was about to get married to her weather-man boyfriend. Then, out of the blue, she gets hit by a meteorite which causes her to grow about 50 feet tall and her hair turned all white.
She was then captured by the government and was locked up alone with other monsters. They are, Dr. Cockroach Ph.D, The Missing Link, the gelatinous (and brainless) B.O.B, and a 350-feet grub named Insectosaurus. Together they must team up to save their country, America (the only country that aliens seem to go to) from an alien who wants to conquer the world.
So go catch the movie if you want to know what happens. =)
My feedback on the movie
The movie overall was good. It was filled with loads of laughs and their great combination of funny characters, great animation and visual effects, makes this movie very enjoyable. The plot however has came under heavy criticism ever since its release. Many (including myself) feels that the storyline / plot could have been much more interesting. With such great animation, its a shame that they could get a plot that could match. So, on a scale of 1 to 5, I would give Monsters vs Aliens a 3 and a half stars for its great animation and humor.
Note, audience should really watch the 3D version. If you don't mind paying a little bit extra for it. Its not only a great family movie but also for everyone.
