Set in a world where people still don’t know that monsters a.k.a Yablo are real, we follow a group of underfunded scientists and soldiers based in the Philippines who work to keep both man and monsters safe.
Everyone: “It must be fun getting to watch movies for free to review them.”
I have seen some trash in my time. In fact, I’m a purveyor of trash. There are films I have seen that you wouldn’t believe. There are films that my family and friends still haven’t forgiven me for making them watch. This one finally did it for me. I nearly turned it off, but I’m a firm believe that you cannot comment on a film’s merits or lack thereof unless you’ve seen it. Although I never used to give up on a book until I learned life is short and there are so many books to be read.
The two things the film has going for it are its locations and cinematography. The locations are well photographed and lend authenticity to the production. The cast aren’t the worst, but there is some awful acting on display. The “special” effects are certainly that! Although I will give props to the main bad guy’s practical effects. Then there’s the sound. Never before have I seen a film and thought I was watching a dubbed version because the ADR quality was so poor.
I’m not the intended audience of this film, but it’s so manic, I fail to see who would be. It’s a bit like an episode of Power Rangers for adults.
This is the worst film I have seen in 2021. An 11 a.m. slot awaits it on The Horror Channel during Sci-Fi Zone.
