     Saw a new film last night on DVD. Monsters.

    Here is the blurb :

    "six years ago Nasa discovered the possibility of alien life within our solar system. A probe was launched to collect samples, but crashed upon reentry over Central America. Soon after, new life forms began to appear and grow. In an effort to stem the destruction that resulted, half of Mexico was quarantined as an INFECTED ZONE. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain the massive creatures.

    A jaded US journalist begrdgingly agrees to find his boss’ daughter, a shaken American tourist and escort her through the infected zone to the safetey of the US border."

    To me this film was so slow and dull. The aliens are not believable and there is too little of them. It was more an excuse to get the  two characters together, like a road trip film but I didn’t like either of the characters anyway. I am disappointed because this could have been a so much better film

     I agree, it was too slow. I liked some of the ideas, but the aliens were easier to connect with than the main human characters.
