An oil consuming, deep earth living creatures were sucked out by an oil pump. A teenager gets a hold of one of these creatures and must help to recover the other ones and to bring them home.
A light-hearted, high-spirited monster film that despite of having a few CGI difficulties still flourished for having such a simple course that touches the heart of the young audiences, or even young-at-heart alike, making it a nice overnight family watching experience.
What’s not good about the film?
Computer Graphics Imagery. The monsters are indeed cute but there are just some areas where Till’s scene seems awkward when he mingles with his beastie bestie.
What’s good about the film?
I gotta admit it that Monster Trucks story is too simple and somewhat derivative with other eco-friendly fantasy adventures, however, it never became dull at any point due to its energy-filled theme, and maybe these trucks just have something in it that arrest our senses.
