Movie Review: Monsters vs. Aliens (2009)

Giant woman surrounded by other monsters standing in a city street.Summary:
Susan is about to get married when a meteor hits her, turning her into a giant.  The US government quickly brings her to its monster facility, where she meets other monsters.  Soon an alien invades Earth, seeking the material in the meteor that made Susan a giant.  The monsters must fight the alien, while Susan tries to come to grips with her new life.

This is an awful movie. Down-right awful.  It was so bad that even though it’s only 94 minutes long, I didn’t finish it.  None of the jokes worked.  The storyline made zero sense.  I mean, the meteor landed on top of Susan.  She definitely would have been crushed prior to being able to soak up any special substance.  The way the monsters are handled completely misses all opportunities for humor.  Omg they have super-powers but can’t seem to use them properly. Hilarious. *eye-roll*  Then there’s the invading alien.  I don’t even know if we were supposed to find him threatening or funny, but he was certainly neither.  Dreamworks, how did you manage to go so wrong?  Especially with the gift of such a talented voice cast including Seth Rogen, Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd, and Stephen Colbert.  This should have been epically funny, instead of an epic waste of time.

Save yourselves from this disaster, folks.  There are plenty of other worthy animated movies out there to spend your time on.

    I found this movie a little too scary for young children like when the robot is crushing the bridge and the people are all in danger. The scene when they defeat the robot was pretty intense. Gallaxhar was hideous looking too but Rainn Wilson did a fantastic job of sounding evil. I am always looking for the movie I missed in the theater as I am an avid movie watcher but what I like about Blockbuster is that I can always find movies not only rare but 28 days before other movie services. Not only that but the Blockbuster Movie Pass from DISH Network that is free for new customers gives me one bill from DISH, over 100,000 movies plus games, streaming and I also get 20 movie channels on my DISH employee account as a current customer for only $10 a month. Next on my queue is Thor and I don’t have to pay extra for mail to my home, or Blue-ray.
