2020's Monster hunter is a new horror action adventure monster movie starring Milla Jovovich of Resident Evil fame, and it's pretty much the same movie as 2020's Love and Monsters starring Dylan O'Brien, which we covered in the video "How to Build the Ultimate Movie Monster | Film Perfection". Or, a loud Hollywood blockbuster spectacle version of it, and not in a good way. Whereas Love and Monsters was a smaller production that made you feel and stayed with you, Monster Hunter is a Michael Bay Transformers version of the same movie that you can watch while stuffing popcorn in your mouth and then immediately forget. So in today's Anatomy of a Failure, let's compare Monster Hunter to Love and Monsters to see how it became a lesser version of the same movie -- how the movie monsters between the two are handled differently the two?

For me, the failure of this movie was ... extensive. First, I was disappointed we spent literally half the movie in a dessert seeing no monsters. Second, they flaunted Gore Magala in the trailers and then he showed up in the last 30 seconds and clickbaited a sequel I'm sure we won't get even though they're likely sitting on almost all the footage for it at this point. Third, they didn't even respect the way monsters would move, in regards to how Rathalos landed. Rathalos and Rathian do not land on or walk with their wings. They may use them as stabilizers briefly but they are not weight bearing limps. Also, no claw attacks or signs of poison claws even though it's SUPER easy to do a few of those. Fourth, the fact that hunters actually seemed to... die. Hunters can't die. Fifth, the sheer lack of palicos anywhere except the Meowscular Chef, and then that one gratuitous (and admittedly GORGEOUS) scene of him cooking without any explanation of why he was doing all that or what for, and no scene of a giant feast or anything. Disappointed. Overall, I am just... Disappointed/10.

dude it was doomed from the start honestly wheny they didn't bother working with the monster hunter lore. at all. in mosnter hunter the monstesr are, well, less monsters and more animals. so diablos? would stop chasing them after a while. it acted like it EATS creatures rather than being a pissed off bull and or rhino. narscyllas are also not giant swarming parasitic spiders and are in fact predators of a fair size. this is also NOT the kind ahabitation they would have. Rathalos are not 'guarding' anything and are in fact just a powerful and common species. Now if it was a nelder dragon that would i nfact give credence that it is harder to fight, but nope!

My biggest issue with the movie was the pacing. Everything just kept zipping by, lightning fast. You didn't have a chance to learn about any of the characters, let alone give them a meaningful arc. The beginning of the movie really killed it. The problem with brining her entire team, is that they had to kill off her entire team in order for her to be alone. In order to do that, they had to have a "big bad" and a bunch crazy monster fights, before we ever get to the meaningful part of the movie. That took over half of the movie..pacing slaughtered it, man. All of the over-the-top action was kinda ridiculous. I wanted to learn way more about the world itself, but they completely failed in that regard. On top of that, I can't remember the name of a single character. Things would happen in the movie and just leave me so confused. It felt like large chunks were cut from the movie or something..I had many more issues with it, but those are the biggest issues that I have with the movie. All of that being said, it could've been worse and I did enjoy watching some of those "over-the-top action scenes". Some of it was cool, fun and cheesy, but that's about it. I also enjoyed some of cool monsters and I liked the guy character(can't remember his name) from the beginning. Hey, at least they let her get the sh#t kicked out of her at times. She was a little bit overpowered, but they didn't go the full "Mary-Sue" route..lol

I agree that her motivation to get back home was artificial but I disagree that the monsters hold no emotional weight, she watched people she had known for years die to these creatures, if you view these characters as fodder then you completely miss the emotion impact that losing her men has on her. I also agree the final act could have been better.

The reason she can beat a native is hunters arent trained to fight other humans. While they are strong and good at physical contests, theres not much evidence of human versus human encounters in the lore. When your fighting things like a Dalamandr or Zorah Magdaros, I dont think learning to punch a human helps at all.

I think Monster Hunter 2020 (I heard some people refer to it as that) has is that it crutches on intertextuality. You only care about seeing the Rathalos, or any other monster for that matter, if you play Monster Hunter. For anyone else, it's a random CGI dragon. There's no reason to care other than it's a CGI monster, as Filmento said. Also, the creators probably saw gameplay of whacking dragons with big swords and assumed that was the only thing that mattered. When you're PLAYING Monster Hunter, whacking monsters with big swords is good enough because it's fun. But when we're watching someone else do it, we need that story to care. I reckon that's where a lot of game adaptations go wrong. If all you do is re-create gameplay 1 for 1, it's rather boring. Why do you think gameplay videos almost always have a human being talking and providing commentary or memes? Because watching a video game that you're not controlling is boring AF.

To be truth, monster hunter movie is lack everything, only vfx is on the spot. The storyline lack conversation and any other information that needs to be delivered in order to ensure that the audience understand what is this movie based on. Hoping that the sequel have better script. This movie could be improved in many ways, it does have many potential.

If they really want to incorporate real world into a monster hunter movie, they could've used fatalis or other prominent legendary being. Like for example, white fatalis is so mythical that he comes from a black hole and they can use that to connect the 2 worlds instead of some random stroms.

about the part of making her pratically doing the whole thing in solo I think it's referred to the story mode of the game that was always like "we can send tons of hunters to take care of this problem but you *insert name* will go alone and we wont do a thing to hlp you" Also in the game the MC is never someone that is totally new to monsters, but someone who gota guild certification or who just have to go to the guild to get it

Why make rathalos and gore as the last boss? Yeah their popular but why not make something new so it makes it more mysterious. If there is rathalos it is bound to have rathian man cmonn...

My question is, why tf did they make Rathalos of all things the big bad of the movie? I mean, they literally included a monster that was already a huge threat to all creatures for existing, and it's an end credits cliffhanger fight? Love how they use none of the already established basis on how a world like that works, meanwhile including most of the main cast from World. A few minutes of screen time, all to just be pathetically killed off. Like, Excitable A-lister is good enough to help the player fight a freaking fatalis, and then oh whoops, funny big boi go smacc.

I have to say, another major problem with Monster Hunter comes down to the fact that it is a movie adaptation of a long running game series. Yes, the monsters have no emotional connection to the characters, because they were probably going off nostalgia from Monster Hunter players being like, "Hey, that's a Ratholos! I've hunted many of those! A Black Diablos! I always cart to those!" This also lends itself to your point about danger escalation with the encounters, since, well, from what I remember it seems they REGRESS in difficulty between monsters, at least by game standards. Usually from what I have seen, Rathalos and Diablos are seen as being pretty on-par with each other strength-wise. However the Diablos we see in the movie isn't a normal Diablos, it's a Black Diablos, which is a much stronger variant of the Diablos. If they wanted to escalate the encounters, they would have ended on an elder dragon or at least Silver Rathalos, Azure Rathalos at a bare minimum, but then they'd lost out on the nostalgia bait of having the big-bad be one of the most iconic monsters in the series.

You can clearly tell the reviewer here has never played a monster hunter game. You can also clearly tell the people who made this movie have never played a monster hunter game, nor appreciate the games lore, story, or plot style. The only one on the team I think who has even touched it is mila jovovich but that's because she does her due diligence when getting a movie role

They just straight up destroyed the rich-cultured and balanced world of mh both literally (in the movie) and not. Capcom really put the effort in the monster, and it is apparent. Problem is monsters are an important figure in the story, not just hallow enemies there to be an obstacle.

I spent a lot of time playing Monster Hunter on my PSP. And I was like ooooh a Monster Hunter movie! But just seeing the premise and trailer completely turned me off. They did right for the large monsters visually, but I don't think I'd ever watch it just because the heart and soul of MH isn't there...and Monster Hunter the name is enough to sell itself, don't need some big wig in the movie messing it all up. Just stay to the core of the game, maybe build it up with someone learning how to fight the monsters, crafting and advancing, defending the village from a huge threat or something.

Hey guys, if you want somebody to be mad at for Monster Hunter/Resident Evil, don't send your hate to Paul W.S. Anderson. We know what his movies are: power fantasies with his wife, who's the most badass angel in the world and dammit, he wants us to know it too. Send your complaints to Capcom, the same company that keeps selling their movie rights to him. They clearly don't care about the quality of their adaptations. He makes his wife fetish films relatively cheap and they make pocket change profit. You know what would make a lot more profit? An actual Resident Evil film that satisfies the millions of fans that you know will pay for that shit. But Paul W.S. Anderson is not the problem. Capcom is the problem. Hell, Resident Evil 3 Remake might as well have been starring Milla Jovovich and been written by the man.

SonicSuper1992 5 dager siden
Probably the largest issue with the film is how they completely changed the aspects of the original material - the game franchise - and altered it into a more generic, excitement-focused monster survival movie. In the franchise's normal universe, these monsters are as much a normal part of nature as any other creature, albeit with their own clearly destructive abilities. A large amount of the time monsters are actually actively hunted is due to necessity of materials, either for resources, accomodations or buildings, or even to improve a hunter's arsenal, as well as when a monster becomes a relative risk of endangering the local populace of a village, group of people, or settlement. In the movie, however, they are treated as generic blockbuster monsters, with your standard body horror/venomous creepy crawlies (Nerscylla), and generic badass dragon (Rathalos). On top of that, a number of monster ecological and biological structures were completely reworked, with a fairly lackluster level of faithfulness to the source material. The Nerscylla in that movie? Yeah, they don't live in deserts, they live in more jungle/forest-like or naturally subterranean locales. Their desert-dwelling subspecies, though, have a PARALYTIC venom, not a narcoleptic variety, creating a conflict with source material. The Rathalos was reworked to have the clear and simple weakness of "shoot the open gas line when it inhales", despite NEVER having such a weakness in the franchise's history. The story concept was a mess, too, with a number of good points in this video. We don't grow to care about the main character because she never truly faces increasing hardships, the greatest difficulty was during the Nerscylla nest. A whole plot and movie rework would've done wonders, such as changing the story to that of a normal hunter's life, both at home, and in the field. We saw emotional attachment and signs of motivations from the accompanying hunter through the movie, appointed toward family and/or friends he lost. On top of that, there were only really four settings that were used, with the empty, dusty desert occupying most of the movie's time with over-the-top and mostly needless action, droning, grating music, and a number of pointless, panning shots of the environment while the character(s) usually just walk in a certain direction. A number of things in the movie are also left unexplained, leaving the viewers to scratch their heads if they had no previous MH experience. This fault mostly goes toward events like the Dual Blades catching fire when crossed overhead. That's Demon Mode, a state where the hunter focuses and enhances their strength and agility, at the cost of draining their stamina, and usually activates in a similar manner as in the movie, albeit with the blades glowing an ominous red instead of catching fire. That was never explained in the movie, and I saw multiple people in the theater with confused looks when I went to see it. The movie failed on multiple fronts, from trying to invest the viewer on the world and characters, as well as being faithful to the source material, making it both a one-time watch popcorn monster flick, and yet another terrible movie adaptation of a videogame franchise. It was loud, obnoxious, and had pacing all over the place, with unnecessary levels of action made specifically to just keep your attention, and nothing else.

It all could be resolved without changing the protagonist if the focus was on a better supporting cast, like if the natives had a particular story with this monster, like if this particular diablos had done something in the past, and about the Rathalos, it was a obvious plot point to add a Rathian, the female counterpart of the species and as iconic to the games as Rathalos, to show that the monsters had their own inteligence just like our world's animals.

Has there ever been a good movie where the main character is referred to by their title rather than their name?

No fucking way are you serious? I know this guy doesnt play the games he bases his films off of but did he not even ask what these creatures do for food?

I mean u are not wrong objectively but you are comparing sticks to stones here. Monster hunter is not just another Monster movie and while the movie sucks especially considering how good the games are, its not another Monster survival movie.

It's annoying how Nercyilla, a very cool spider like monster with a brilliant lore and very interesting design is just turned into a generic spider monster....it just...ergh....the one cool creature that's not JUST ANOTHER GIANT SPIDER is just treated like utter crap.

Monster hunter movie would've been a massive advertisement towards their game but somehow they fuck it up.

Monster hunter had a culture very unlike what was portrayed here. They completely missed the soul of the franchise when they ignored the fact that hunters are essentially like pro athletes to these people. It would have had more success taking the formula from a sports movie than monster one.
