The latest Dreamworks computer generated movie blasts its way onto
the giant IMAX screens in Monsters vs Aliens 3D that combines state
of the art computer generated images with the stunning 3D graphics.
Monsters vs Aliens 3D revolves around Susan Murphy (Reese
Witherspoon) whose wedding day is ruined when she is hit by a meteor
from outer of space.
Although she survives the impact, she still manages to make it to
the church until she begins to grow uncontrollable and eventually
demolishes the church after she reaches a height of 49 feet and 11
inches. Her husband to be Derek Dietl (Paul Rudd) would rather flee
as marrying a 49 feet and 11 inches woman would be detrimental to
his occur as a news anchor or so he believes.
After the incident
Susan is then captured by a secret military agency that has been
"removing" monsters from the world and she is given the monster name
of Ginormica. General W.R. Monger (Kiefer Sutherland) explains to
Susan that she is to remain in this secret base in order to keep the
existence of monsters hidden from the world of mankind.
this news, Susan is then introduced to a group of down and out
monsters that includes a blob like creature called B.O.B. (Seth
Rogen), a super intelligence cockroach called Dr. Cockroach Ph.D.
(Hugh Laurie), a lizard man called "The Missing Link" (Will Arnett)
and finally a gigantic insect called Insectosaurus. Unlike the
stereotypically "monster" image, all are actually quite friendly,
even the cute Insectosaurus.
Unbeknown to this group of monsters, they are about to be thrust
into the spotlight when an alien called Gallaxhar (Rainn Wilson)
wishes to "steal" the power from Susan in order to make an army of
clones to overrun the Earth. From here, the Monsters are the Earth's
only hope in this entertaining film that can be watched by children
of ALL ages. Monsters vs Aliens 3D features everything you would
expect in this genre that include action, adventure, "romance" and
best of all, a healthy dose of humour.
The actors really lend themselves well to the characters, whether
it's Reese Witherspoon as the questioning girl who eventually steps
into her shoes as a hero, Seth Rogen as the forgetful and
entertaining B.O.B. or Kiefer Sutherland as the rough and
militaristic General W.R. Monger that may seem like a hard man but
actually has a heart of gold. Of course, the stars of this movie are
the computer generated characters themselves which simply look
amazing on the big screen.
IMAX, Monsters vs Aliens 3D is a visual treat that simply looks
phenomenal on the huge screen and match that with 3D and it's
almost like being part of this computer generated movie. The colours
are extremely vibrant with brilliantly clear images that is matched
equally well with the IMAX sound. Needless to say, this is how
computer generated movies should be experienced and I would highly
recommend that you see this movie on the giant IMAX screen!
