3.5 out of 10 New filmaking
Roland from Kerry, 03 Jan 2013
If you're expecting a teenage Monster movie you'll be disappointed, it's actually an atmospheric and moody relationship development story with the eponymous Monsters providing the backdrop. It's not perfect but all the time it had a nice feel and seemed more real to me than any Hollywood blockbuster despite the budget CGI, and that's the kicker. Make sure you view the bonus because the way the movie was made is very interesting. Plus some of the best acting I've seen in a long time (buying tickets) provided by someone found on location that day. I think it shows technology is opening up new forms of film making and puts the lie to A list Hollywood posturing in my opinion, the music goes well too.

2.5 out of 10 Kinda the same wave of district 9
Giacomo from Galway, 26 Apr 2011
If you are looking for a real story, real characters, what a real alien invasion may look like, what real reactions could people have in front of it... well then it's the right movie for you. More or less the same idea behind district 9. More or less the same behind cloverfield but without the blaiwitchproject camera effect. If you (like me) are more the indipendenceday/warofworlds type of guy do not rent it.

4 out of 10 Hollywood style, at LIDL prices!
Brock from Limerick, 06 May 2011
On the face of it, this is another Hollywood venture about alens on Earth and the human story to confront it. Then the credits run and you start to understand that this was shot on a nothing budget with one guy doing all 200+ FX on a a PC! Was very odd to see that my flim lecturer at college produced this, I must get back in touch!

3.5 out of 10 Monsters a thoughtful movie
Paul from Laois, 15 May 2011
This is not really a movie about aliens or monsters. No sfx or fancy stuff. However its quite an atmospheric piece centered on a young couple thrown together and how their relationship grows. Some strong underlying moral messages in there too. Well worth watching. The soundtrack is brilliant...worth renting for that alone.

3.5 out of 10 Good thoughtful sci-fi.
Rory from Dublin, 21 Oct 2011
This is a good movie and when you take into account the geurrila nature of its creation and the micro budget it's a great movie and a truly amazing achievement. Taken simply on it's own merits though it's a decent slow burner sci-fi/road movie. If you enjoyed The Road or The Book Of Eli you'll enjoy this.

What's it about....
Six years ago NASA discovered the possibility of alien life within our solar system. A probe was launched to collect samples, but crashed upon re-entry over Central America. Soon after, new life form began to appear and half of Mexico was quarantined as an INFECTED ZONE. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain "the creatures"...... Our story begins when a US journalist agrees to escort a shaken tourist through the infected zone in Mexico to the...
