Aro Recommended Monsters vs Aliens


USA 2009, 94 minutes
Dir. Rob Letterman, Conrad Vernon
Rating: [G]
Genres: Family, Science Fiction / Animation, Monster Mash, Invaders, Spoof

Topics: 3D-animation.


Aroview: Rollicking animated flick in which Reese Witherspoon's "50 Ft. Woman" leads a rag-tag group of 'B-movie' monsters kept secret by the government against invading aliens intent on destroying the Earth.

Adult appreciation for may depend on one's knowledge or love of the creaky drive-in fare of the 1950s, but those that do will chortle with fanboy glee at the inspired references, stonking 3-D action sequences, and 'up-to-the-minute' retro sci-fi design. While it might not have the depth of other recent top-drawer animations, this Dreamworks production's entertainment value competes pixel-for-pixel with its heavyweight Pixar cousins.

Other voicework also from Seth Rogen, Hugh Laurie, Kiefer Sutherland, and Paul Rudd.
