Movie Reviews

Reviewed by marcwiechmann 8/10

I want to start my review with the clear message, that this is anawesome (!) movie, but that it is also not for everyone. It is a drama,with some horror elements, which are mainly metaphoric. It is NOT astraight on horror movie - if you search for that, watch &#x22;Siren&#x22;, &#x22;TheAutopsy of Jane Doe&#x22; or &#x22;Last Shift&#x22; (my 2016 favorites) - &#x22;TheMonster&#x22; is not that kind of movie ! Some other reviews find harshwords for this pearl of a movie, I even read someone saying like &#x22;theyhad no more ideas, so they tried to make more time with those stupidflashbacks&#x22; - OMG xD These are what the movie is about ^^ So pleaseconsider this, before picking this one and before writing a horriblereview - it does not deserve anything but love :-)<br><br>You all can read the plot synopsis, so I will only sum it up - a young,alcoholic mother wants to deliver her daughter to live with the father.On a dark and rainy road they get attacked by something monstrous andtry to survive. <br><br>Sounds generic? Yes, totally. But this is only the frame of the movie,nothing more - it does not have to be original, since this would reduceyour attention to the main aspect of the movie. It&#x27;s true heart lies inthe flashbacks, which are telling the painful, dysfunctionalrelationship of mother and daughter in it&#x27;s most hurting moments. Forpeople that had kind of a bad childhood, this may hurt, you shouldconsider this before watching - it is played outstandingly good by theactresses, feels very real and, well, it simply hurts to watch.<br><br>&#x22;The Monster&#x22; delivers great acting, a very good plot (this might bethe only thing I did not like - the metaphoric aspects were prettyobvious. Still done well, but they could have been a little bit lessdirect), nice tension, and beautiful cinematography. I mention theacting again - Zoe Kazan was outstanding in her performance as troubledmother, and I promise you will see Ella Ballentine in more movies.Maybe one of the best child performances I have seen so far. Not THEbest, but in the Top 10.<br><br>Okay, I admit, there are some weaknesses in the plot - some of thedecisions, especially in the last third of the movie, made me wonder abit, since I personally would have thought of more practical solutions,and I am pretty sure I would have brought me and my kid out of thissituation alive and well. But that is always easy to say from the warmsafety of my couch, and I did know against what I have to fight. Ifthis moments would have been real, in the dark, rainy wilderness, hurt,confused and shocked - I&#x27;d probably so totally panic out, that I&#x27;d killmyself by accident before defeating the monster xD Also, come on - weare horror fans, or you wouldn&#x27;t read this. I have seen hundreds ofhorror movies - literally, you can see my list, which is only the tipof the iceberg - and have seen SO many SO stupid decisions - in &#x22;TheMonster&#x22; they weren&#x27;t that bad. So I can look beyond that (and beyondwondering about the monster&#x27;s behaviour at moments).<br><br>The monster itself was awesome - it had it&#x27;s own style, looked reallydangerous, was animated great, and, as far as I could see and haveread, there is zero CGI in there, it&#x27;s all practical effects. This isreally impressive. <br><br>So, yes, I absolutely agree to watch this movie, if you like dramas, ifyou like slow paced horror, if you like movies with a real plot, strongacting (and strong girls!) if you like movies in which you can see theheart and effort of the production team in every scene, and if you likethose movies that are just a little bit different than the genericmainstream scene. I guess we all can enjoy some mainstream here andthere, but &#x22;The Monster&#x22; is one of those movies you will remember.<br><br>And now go and watch it. Oh, by the way, 100 % girlfriend/wife/loveinterest watchable.<br><br>I give it 8 points, which may be one or two too much, considering thelegendary movies of all times, which have an 8 something rating - butsince there are just too many undeserved bad reviews, I wanted to steeragainst that a little bit :-)<br><br>Have a nice day! :-)

Battling our own fears and weaknesses could be an alternative title tothis film. At first the mother seems to be an irresponsible, immatureyoung parent. The child has learned to take care of herself. The actingis extraordinary. The actors excelled in making the audience believethat they were living the story rather than pretending. No matter whatthe problems in their relationship, as they are depicted through theflashbacks, the bond between mother and her child is and remains tillthe end very strong. As strong are the mother&#x27;s addictions, whichaffect their relationship and their lives. I won&#x27;t disclose in whatway. For me it was an allegory and, in that purpose the director -writer delivered. I recommend it.

There are a lot of strong opinions on this film in its early reviews. Ijust want to give a practical commentary on what I see. <br><br>This is a great horror flick with some heavy symbolism. It is a storyabout a mother and daughter who are terrorized by a monster when theircar gets stuck. A lot of dudes (or women haters) seem to hate it (checkthe low reviews and notice the colorful words they have for women). Asa dude myself, I had no problem watching a film from a femaleperspective. I rather enjoyed it and found it touching at times. <br><br>The characters are both flawed. I related with the daughter at timesbecause I grew up with a flawed father. I acted and reacted a lot ofthe ways the daughter in the film did too. So from my perspective,there was some heavy realism in the backstory. I found the &#x22;boring&#x22;moments to be touching. <br><br>The practical effects are superb in my opinion. Some will disagreethough. <br><br>Some of the writing is flawed in regards to character choices. I thinkdiscourse could answer some of the choices, but my fellow horror filmnerds seem to be either accepting or spiteful of clich&#xE9; character failsin the genre. I could see past them though for quality story though. <br><br>So if you don&#x27;t get angry being put in a woman&#x27;s perspective and likehorror films, this should be right your alley.
