Love and Monsters [Movie Review]

Love and Monsters [Movie Review] | I watched this movie after reading a review from a movie-lover sharing group on FB. Well, one can't go to the cinema to enjoy the movie, so we bring the cinema to our own bedroom.

When a huge asteroid heads towards Earth, the whole world unites and nukes the asteroid. The world succeeds in her bid to destroy the asteroid but the radiation from the nuclear bomb mutates the animal and turns them into huge monsters. Joel got separated from his girlfriend, Aimee during the evacuation and his parents were killed by the monsters stampede. 

Joel has been staying underground with other survivors for the past 7 years. Apart from trying to look for Aimee, Joel helps in the kitchen while the others roam the surface looking for food supply. Joel is prohibited from roaming the surface because he freezes and shakes a lot when confronting the monsters - making him a liability to others. 

When he finally makes contact with Aimee who is in another colony 85-miles away from his, Joel decides that he is going to see Aimee. The colony tries to discourage him but it seems Joel has decided on meeting Aimee.

Armed with just a crossbow and a dead radio, Joel starts his journey. He was attacked by a monstrous frog when a dog helped him. The dog, Boy is also alone so naturally, they stick to each other. When Joel falls into a nest of worm-monsters called Sand-Gobblers, he was saved by Clyde and Minnow who happens to past the area. Clyde and Minnow is very well-versed about the monsters and how to defeat them. They laugh at how incapable Joel is in defending himself so they taught him the survival and combat skills. 

When Joel finally arrives at Aimee's colony, the four parted ways. Joel and Boy continue through a swamp until Boy senses a monster and hide. A giant centipede crawls up and traps Boy. Joel paralyses again until he remembers that he has to defend the helpless, as taught by Clyde and Minnow. He shoots the monster and saves Boy.

When running from a Queen Sand-Gobblers, Boy accidentally gives up their hiding location and almost cost them their lives if not for the grenade that Joel throws into the Queen's mouth. Joel gets mad at Boy and yells at him, which resulting in Boy leaves Joel alone. 

After passing out due to swimming in a river filled with huge leeches that suck him dry, Joel wakes up in Aimee's colony. He was introduced to Cap and his crew who is planning to take the colony to a safer place using his ship. 

Aimee also tells Joel that she has moved on. And then Joel realises Cap's real intention when he sees the food's supply that the Cap stored. 

What is the Cap's real intention? And is Joel a part of that plan?

Plot: 4.5/ 5.0 I love the plot. It is a teenage love story with lots of monster actions. And the CGI is great too. Much better than some of the CGI I have seen so far. 

Cast: 4.3/ 5.0 The focus of the movie are on a selected few of the cast - the hero, the heroin and some additional casts. And they delivered. The rest were just there. Ok lah. Not that bad. 

Will I watch it again: I will, this is going to be among the fave-monster movie. 

The pictures are taken from IMDB and multiple sources on the Internet. Thank you.
