Doesn't live up to the promise.
When I first heard of Monsters vs. Aliens I literally went giddy. A
50's B-movie revival! Stephen Colbert as the President! Hugh Laurie as
a cockroach! I mean, it's called Monsters vs. Aliens!!!
What I got was a mildly good movie. I mean, there were some nice gags
in the Strangelove- lite War Room, and some great lines from BOB, but
it really left me wanting more. As a whole, the film never got to the
comical heights of Shrek, Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda, or even Shrek 2.
There are times in the movie where you know that they are going
completely random to try and get some laughs, but fail pretty badly.
Besides comedy, the story itself is pretty predictable. From the moment
you meet the monsters you know what the moral of the story, and you
know pretty much how the whole film will play out.
But it is not a bad film. Not at all. It's good, but not great. What IS
great is the 3D. Me, I've never really warmed to 3D, but they use it
here in a completely different sense. Monster's vs Alien's 3D is not
about shouting "OMG I CAN TOUCH HIS BEARD!!", but more about
perspective. And hair. I'm sorry but it's worth seeing just for
Ginormica's (Susan's) hair alone.
So basically, it's fun - but not as fun as it should have been. And
take it from me: even if you're cynical about 3D; see it in 3D. It's
worth the ticket price alone..

DreamWorks can be proud.
The President of the United States (Stephen Colbert): "Boys, set the
terror level at code brown, 'cause I need to change my pants."
Monsters vs. Aliens is my first 3-D movienot really, but it is the
first time I have felt the process worked within a film as an integral
part of the artistic process. It supports the science fiction,
titillates at times, but most of all gives the illusion of reality.
DreamWorks can be proud of this addition to the pantheon of excellent
contemporary animations (dominated by Pixar) that use its Shrek as a
touchstone for memorable characters wedded to mature themes and
Monsters vs. Aliens is also a family film in the truest sense: Elders
to tots can enjoy the visual delights of 3-D outer space and observe a
young bride-to-be Susan Murphy (voice of Reese Witherspoon) grow by a
radiation accident into the heroic role of Ginormica, a woman literally
too big for her britches. She must assert her independence from a
