Monster Hunter

Monster Hunter ★★½

Zoned out a bit towards the end as I had basically reached my capacity for this sort of thing, but for what it is – a CG-heavy action movie based on a video game, extremely not my jam – I had a pretty good time. The practicals and VFX are great, and they're helped along by the beefy sound system at Lido which absolutely makes the monsters sound real even if they don't always look it.

This was also the first-ever time I've been in a cinema that was otherwise empty, and I kept looking over my shoulder just to double check that there wasn't anyone in there with us before making dumb jokes and heckling the screen. Finally, my cinema dreams have come true – thanks covid!
