Bollywood Crazies Opinion: I was totally engrossed in watching larger than life Monster Hunter. The first 30 minutes were interesting and there were lot of action scenes. The good thing about this film is, it is high on action and less of story. The fight sequence between Tony Jaa and Milla Jovovich was my favourite. The VFX work was brilliant throughout the film. I personally loved the whole film as i found it larger than life and full of thrills. The camera angles were terrific and long shots were breathtaking. The editing work was brilliant, especially during fight scenes. The story loses its control after 45 to 50 minutes and then you don’t understand when and how the film will end. The makers have kept a hope of the sequel and let’s wait and see.
Altogether, Monster Hunter is a film that you should watch if you are a fan of Jurrasic Park and Mad Max world.
Last word: Watch it for its action scenes and unusual story plot. Also watch it for Tony Jaa, Milla Jovovich and offcourse the Monsters.
