Hope You're Not Sick Of Movies About Fighting Giant Monsters

If you saw sleeper 2010 hit Monsters, you'll know that despite being about a giant...monster, you don't actually see much of it. It's very quiet, very tense. Four years later the movie has a sequel, and that soft approach has gone right out the window.


Monsters: Dark Continent takes place ten years after the first movie, and the giant creatures are now spreading all over the planet. It focuses on a squad of US soldiers, all fresh recruits, as they see their first action in the Middle East.

And that action is basically a lot of people shooting at a lot of very large monsters.

I know this looks nothing like the original. But the original had a formula you simply couldn't repeat. This actually looks...cool. We usually see monster movies from the top-down, but this looks like one from the ground-up.

And one where we might actually get a decent amount of monsters-on-screen time for once as a result.
