Movie Plot

Looking for any way to get away from the life and town he was born into, Tripp (Lucas Till), a high school senior, builds a Monster Truck from bits and pieces of 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.

★★★ - simple and daft, but still pretty fun

Teenage scrapheap worker Tripp one day discovers a mysterious creature hiding in his truck. Turns out it escaped from an oil well that drilled too deep, and now the hired professionals of Terravex want to capture the non-threatening creature and keep their unlawful drilling a secret. Having seen the trailers several times, I was expecting the worst. Like Transformers but lower budget and quality. To be fair, it probably is, except it's much more fun than Transformers, taking itself far from seriously. Of course the animation looks fairly cheap and shiny but something about it feels incredibly light-hearted and enjoyable. Chris Wedge is obviously better suited to animated movies, and maybe Monster Trucks should have been one, but at least the tone was right, even if the story was pretty simple and formulaic. The characters, one the other hand, are far less interesting. Lucas Till seems to have taken his hair from the '80s, his chin from the '60s and charisma from Keanu Reeves, hamming it up at any opportunity. Levy is fine, but never really has much to do, but veterans like Lowe, Pepper and Glover need talking to. The main problem is that it doesn't really feel like a proper cinematic movie, it's just a bit of nonsense fun that should be on a kids TV channel at some point. Simple, familiar story and dull characters, Monster Trucks isn't one you should race to see. That said, it's light and fun enough to pass the time, and most under 10s will enjoy it. 3/5

Nothing Special, just your run-of-the-mill PG action film.

A post Christmas treat with my 8 year old daughter. We'd seen a trailer of this when watching Moana and my little one was eager to see this at the cinema on a Daddy/Daughter day. The films ancient creature effects were generally very good, and convincing enough for the young target audience. A mix of ET and an octopus! The acting, from a few old hands and some youngsters, was well targeted, nothing too deep or hard to follow. The plot was easy to follow, with clear differences between the good and bad characters, and strong family values. Both human and not. The driving stunts were good. Allowing the target audience comfort that their favourite characters would be safe. While the film is likely aimed at a male grouping, it has enough content for each gender. I'm scoring this 8/10. It was a brilliant film for its youthful audience.

Brainless and silly. Certainly one for the younger geeks among us.

I took my youngest child, six years old (nearly seven), to see this yesterday. He bounced around like Tigger the whole way through, and only paused to turn around once in a while to tell me "This is the best movie ever!" This coming from a boy who loves everything from Harry Potter, Star Wars, Top Gear (and Grand Tour), to Tractor Ted and Octonauts. As an adult, it was a perfectly acceptable way to spend a couple of hours enjoying the company of my child. There's not a lot to the story, so if you've seen the trailer you won't be surprised. The monsters straddle the line well between being "monstrous" and cute (my boy acted suitably scared until it became clear that the monsters were on the good side, after which he loved them). He came out of the cinema asking when it would be available on DVD, so on balance a glowing recommendation from a 6 year old and a warm fuzzy one from me. is a cinema website serving you dear visitors 7/24 to give information about all movies, now playing movies, show location of nearest theaters and sessions, trailers of upcoming movies and information about actors and actresses, their biographies, videos and photographs. is the only interactive website where visitors can interact with each other using Facebook, Twitter and Google. is a global website using highly advanced web technologies and is served in 7 different languages apart from English and can give the visitors same service from the countries where these languages are spoken.
