NOT REGION FREE
Verified purchase
I purchased this as it is described as region free - I am based in the UK and tried this on both my ASUS Blu-Ray Drive and downstairs TV Blu Ray Player - both show the same error message that the region is not compatible. A pity as the box is nice and I do want to watch the film.

No issues with the disc here.

Those moaning about it not playing on a uk player, the 4k will and this is the product you are buying. If it was just a blu ray then no, it is region locked but the 4k disc IS playable as they have no region coding. Of course you need a 4k player.

Great Popcorn flick but two stars removed for awful packaging, especially on an international purchase. Literally was paper.

SOME MONSTERS SIMPLY REFUSE TO DIE EASILY ? (A 4K DELIGHT)
Verified purchase
The 2020 movie Starring Milla Jovovich as Artemis:
A US Army Ranger member of a United Nations military team leads a military
unit instructed to search for a team of missing soldiers in the desert, however, en-route they
become engulfed in violent electric sandstorm which seemingly propels Them to a different
location.
They have no idea where they have ended up but are aware that there is a lot more sand,
what they didn't realize was they'd actually been sent through a portal to another World.
This is a frightening place, they will soon find themselves under attack from a dinosaur--
like creature..
Someone they don't know tries to get them to head toward him for safety, but the unit see's
Hunter (Tony Jaa) initially as a threat and open-fire, Artemis tells them to stand down, they need
to focus on the real threat.
Wherever they are, the threat from a variety of de5ekiev monsters that will take its toll on the
unit leaving just Artenis who'll need the help of Hunter but each gaining the trust of the other will
prove challenging, however, working together to defeat a fearsome monster will no doubt bring
about trust in each other.
However, a even more dangerous beast awaits, the fire-breathing dragon known as a Rathalos,
threatens, Artemis and Hunter will need the help of hunters comrades led by
The Admiral (Ron Perlman)
Even then, more Monster action awaits....
The film is based on a long-term video-game series (though not a game
player myself)
Though there are no awards to be won the film is certainly with some
superb visuals it is in my opinion an enjoyable escapism watch....

DOES NOT WORK ON MULTI REGION PLAYERS.

The film doesn't work, even on multi-region players. The bumpf claims it's multi region. THIS IS A LIE. Won't work in the UK region. Wait until it streams.

Why on earth did I pay money to watch this rubbish? As any fan of movies will know, computer game cross overs are always notoriously bad and this one is no exception.

I'm not even keen on the computer game but I had a vague hope this might be fun in a 1950's monster movie kind of way. However this is not fun, its just dull, and at no point do you ever care about either the story or the characters.

Milla Jovovich is completely unconvincing as a bad ass army Ranger drawn into a fantasy world of Godzilla like monsters and dragons. As the director Paul W S Anderson also directed the Resident Evil movies he clearly thought she was a natural choice. But as well as not being able to act she looks old and tired throughout, and lacks any convicing physical presence.

I understand that Monster Hunter is big in Japan but I think a lot of this is lost in translation. The monsters seem impervious to modern weapons, but extremely vulnerable to oversized manga style swords and bows. Although the CGI is very good the monsters lack any real impact and I found myself yawning my way through action scene after action scene.

Without hopefully giving too much away this movie has a terrible ending that just makes me wonder what the point of it all was. I'm hoping there is not going to be a sequal, but at least this time I am forwarned to avoid it if there is one.

Standard action adventure movie
Verified purchase
The premise of the film - a mystery gateway to another world has been done often the movies, but this time it's the desert that's the portal, but with similar monsters. Milla Jovovich is believable as the commanding officer trying to lead her squad and stay alive. The fight sequences and CGI are amazing. In the fight scenes the choreography is precise and I'm sure Ms. Jovovich didn't use a stunt double making her performance even better. I love CGI dragons! The size and scale was incredible. It really is a lot of work to create and animate these monsters, but it's seen so often it can be taken for granted, but I won't! So to conclude, simple story, standard characters, smattering of humour, tons of special effects. If you like that kind of thing, you're onto a winner.

Could have been better
Verified purchase
This is a "bell-shaped" film as far as thrills and spills go. The start is like the start to about 2 dozen other films : seasoned grunts (all types represented) in a tight-knit team, joshing each other, something happens, some pay the ultimate sacrifice to save their comrades - you get the picture?
The end bit is disjointed, confusing and yes I know the film is based on the game but there was no customer advisory at the start warning us that only those who loved the game should watch the film. The movie should be judged on its own merits
The middle bit is good. Our 2 heroes marooned on a rock, getting to trust and respect each other while battling monsters. Pitch Black meets Tremors and they join Aliens for brunch. Yep it's derivative but enjoyable cinema (there's more cerebral stuff on Prime too if you like).
I wish they had ditched the ending and extended the middle out. A tablespoon of originality at the start and you have a good Friday night film
