A film that makes you think.

If you're looking for a movie that's about killing aliens, big explosions and mindless violence, this is not the film for you. I initially thought it might be just a standard action film, but I was pleasantly surprised as I realized that would not be the case. Monsters: Dark Continent is a film that explores various themes, from human relationships, to war and violence. The violence is not the key attraction here. If anything, it makes you realize how pointless violence is and how it just breeds more violence and hatred. The monsters are presented in a way that might lead a viewer to realize that they may not be the villains they are described to be. In one scene, a herd of monsters are running alongside the Humvees when one runs in front of the Humvee and gets killed. We see a monster running towards the corpse in the distance and there is a brief moment where we see the monster standing by its dead companion, almost as if it's mourning. At this moment, I realized that maybe the monsters weren't meant to be villains and that maybe they were not the malicious creatures we were lead to believe they were. This is a fantastic film that has many layers in it.

Waste of time.

Title. The movie doesn't make sense within it's own world that it created. I love mindfuck movies, horror movies, sci-fi, mysteries all of that good stuff and this movie was a poor excuse when it comes to any of those genres. TWO whole hours of my life wasted. Thank you Tom Green ! One of a few movies where i'm agreeing with the ratings that imbd gave.

Like all good sci-fi, it's not about the aliens.

I'm baffled where there are so many reviews. I think it's more to do with expectation than of the movie itself. I haven't seen the first Monsters and saw this sequel as a standalone. In all honesty this is a brilliant movie, and here's the reason why: This is a movie about human nature - not aliens. It's about the extremes of people when faced with hopelessness. Whether you take the monsters as literal (ie. there's a fight against aliens in the middle east) or as a metaphor for an unsurmountable and 'alien' enemy fighters, the movie highlights: 1. the sacrifice of ones own identity, sanity, family and meaning. and 2. the senseless waste of 'collateral damage' for the greater good for a war that cannot be won. This realisation occurs to soldier as he watches the alien spores after the child dies, and the image of the commander losing his mind as the unstoppable mountain of aliens rise from the sand. The purpose of the aliens is not to create an alien or sci-fi movie. The aliens could just have well been replaced by a deadly virus, killer asteroid, or zombies. It's a story of human apocalypse, and madness of some types of human behaviour when illuminated by this context.
