The Reviews are in and are Not All Good for "Monster Hunter"

The history of video games being turned in to movies is generally pretty poor and it seems that the lastest game to transition to the big screen "The Monster Hunter" doesn't escape the curse.

The movie stars Milla Jovovich as Artemis, Tony Jaa as the Hunter, Ron Perlman as Admiral, and T.I. as Link, and is directed by Paul W.S. Anderson.

If it sounds like a familiar cast know that Anderson and Jovovich previously teamed up in the cinematic adaptations of another video game series "Resident Evil".

Not all the reviews are bad, they just don't rate it super high, but what do you expect? It's not "Citizen Kane' it's "Monster Hunter" if it delivers what is in the title, you are in for a fun ride.

About the Film:
 
Behind our world, there is another: a world of dangerous and powerful monsters that rule their domain with deadly ferocity. When an unexpected sandstorm transports Captain Artemis (Milla Jovovich) and her unit (TI Harris, Meagan Good, Diego Boneta) to a new world, the soldiers are shocked to discover that this hostile and unknown environment is home to enormous and terrifying monsters immune to their firepower. In their desperate battle for survival, the unit encounters the mysterious Hunter (Tony Jaa), whose unique skills allow him to stay one step ahead of the powerful creatures. As Artemis and Hunter slowly build trust, she discovers that he is part of a team led by the Admiral (Ron Perlman). Facing a danger so great it could threaten to destroy their world, the brave warriors combine their unique abilities to band together for the ultimate showdown.
