Zachary Marsh: Monster Trucks (7/10)
Ladies and gentlemen, we’re not even two weeks into 2017 and we already have the equivalent of Nine Lives for the year. So much of this movie is so objectively terrible that I was laughing constantly throughout. I honestly may go see this again just because I had such a blast watching it the first go-around. Everything here is wrong, and yet it’s all right at the same time. If you need a good laugh, go witness this gloriousness on the big screen.
Mark Krawczyk: Monster Trucks (7.25/10)
This is a family friendly fun film that is a throw back to late 80s -early 90s family movies like Honey I Shrunk the Kids. It is ridiculous in concept but well executed. It also is better than the trailers made it out to be. The creature design was cool and the reasoning for the creature to be inside the truck made sense in the world they build. Rob Lowe is fun as the villain and Danny Glover is great in his short time on screen. It is entertaining and not too sweet of a movie where parents will roll their eyes. one of the better family films to come out. I think there is something for everyone here. The CGI was really good throughout most of the film and I hear the 3D is awesome.
Scott Menzel: Monster Trucks (7/10)
Monster Trucks will more than likely become one of the most underrated family films of 2017. This poorly marketed film is just a total blast to watch. It’s cute, funny, and entertaining family flick. I can’t believe how much fun it was to watch this film as it took me back to my childhood. It is a throwback to the non-animated family films made popular in the 80s and 90s. The cast embraces the material for what it is and just has fun with it. There is really something for everyone in this film despite what the trailers lead you to believe. If you have children or are simply looking for a mindless and fun popcorn flick, Monster Trucks is a great option this January.
Tony Estrada: Monster Trucks (7/10)
This is the definition of a totally dumb but fun family movie. Lucas Till and Jane Levy acted well in this film making for a surprisingly cute duo and Creech the monster is one of the most adorable characters I’ve seen in a while. The concept may be ridiculous but it’s executed in the right way with a storyline that’s actually pretty good to my surprise. The chase sequence in the climax of the film is also one of the most fun times I’ve had at the theater. Monster Trucks is dumb but also very charming and I think the filmmakers being self-aware of the kind of movie they are making is what made this movie even more fun to me.
