Monster Trucks

A teen finds a monster in a truck in this family adventure. Stars Lucas Till (X-Men: Apocalypse). From the director of Epic

Looking for any way to get away from the life and town he was born into - or at least a distraction - Tripp (Till), a high school senior, builds a monster truck from bits and pieces of scrapped cars. After an accident at a nearby oil-drilling site displaces a strange and subterranean creature with a taste and a talent for speed, Tripp may have just found the key to getting out of town and a most unlikely friend.

Cars transforming into robots? Talking fish, toys, vehicles and emoticons? Yeah, well now we have a Hollywood family movie about a truck. With a monster hiding in it. Dumb? Hell yeah. Fun for kids and pre-teens? Hell yeah, again.

"Monster Trucks" feels like a throwback to the era of "a boy and his (magical) dog" movies - though these stories have significantly lost their charm since the industry switched from practical to digital effects.

Transformers-lite for Finding Dory fans who can't wait to drive.

...if you like trucks and/or monsters and have 102 minutes with absolutely nothing better to do, give it a spin.

An eco-fable devoid of didactic overkill, delivered with energy, winking mischief, unobtrusive effects and a skilled cast.

It has tentacles and hot wheels, yes, but not the legs or bright ideas to sustain itself.

There simply isn't enough story in Monster Trucks to sustain the film. Especially not one well over an hour-and-a-half long.

A tone-deaf mix of live action and computer-generated animation that never engagingly clicks into gear.

A ludicrous concept is given pace and goofy humour but it doesn’t give its human characters enough room to shine amid the set piece car chases.
