Performers, Cast and Crew:
Chicago Sun-Times - 11/17/2010
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "MONSTERS holds our attention ever more deeply as we realize it's not a casual exploitation picture....Edwards is brilliant at evoking the awe and beauty he has been building toward..."
Entertainment Weekly - 11/17/2010
"The result impresses thanks to the lead actors' performances and Edwards' skilled efforts." -- Grade: B+
Empire - 12/03/2010
5 stars out of 5 -- "Edwards creatures are astonishingly rendered: pylon-sized hybrids of octopus, giraffe and jellyfish, balletically staking through the night, their bioluminescent tentacles seemingly as capable of tenderness as they are devastation. They are perfectly alien..."
Sight and Sound - 01/01/2011
"What Edwards achieves here is in the grand tradition of fantasy literature and cinema....MONSTERS is a radical parable for an alienated age."
Uncut - 01/01/2011
3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he visual elements are consistently attractive, and the whole affair deserves credit for simply doing something different..."
Total Film - 12/02/2010
5 stars out of 5 -- "[Y]ou'll leave with no doubt of Edwards' capacity for empathy. He proves his stones as a showman too."
