This movie slipped under our radar and boy we wished it was still there.
JG13 Gamer had a chance to see the movie at our local library and wanted to share his Monster Trucks review to save people time and money.
The movie centers around follows Tripp, a high school senior who is looking to get away from his life and the small town he was born in. He builds a Monster truck from scrapped cars.
After an accident at a nearby oil-drilling site displaces a strange and subterranean creature with a taste and a talent for speed, Tripp may have just found the key to getting out of town and a most unlikely friend.
On to the Monster Trucks review.
- The CGI Monsters look okay.
- A few actors (the villain and supporting cast) do a better than average job,
- Due to how the characters were written they felt bland and it felt like the actors were just there. Based on their performance, they were just for the paycheck.
- The creatures looked like a generic monster that unfortunately had to be brought to life. They would have been better off not making them look like whales but rather something more ferocious.
- The story does starts off decent and is okay in the middle. The movie falls apart in the last act because there was no real suspense because it was obvious where it was going to go.
- The monsters were too over powered since they could do anything and presented the characters with a plot shield.
Overall this is a movie not worth your time even if it is on cable tv. Make sure to pass this one up. This movie would receive two out of ten.
