What a horrible depressing adaptation of a great childrens book
|Format: Television (HD)
This movie was probably one of the worst movies I have ever had the displeasure of watching.
It stars Max Records as "Max" as the main child actor of the movie. The story basically starts off with Max getting into a fight with his older sister for ignoring him and then he starts to act psycho and immediately after starts fighting with his mother and bites her (he thinks he is a monster lol), he then runs off into the night and somehow manages to end up on a boat (where did the boat come from???) which takes him to an island where these monsters are (somehow he does not get killed by the huge waves!!!)...wow what a load of ****. I could not believe what a miserable attempt at storytelling/plot I was watching...it was absolutely terrible.
The acting was barely there for the film and the monsters were very poorly done. I really think this movie would have benefited from CGI as those costumes looked like they were from the 80s. :(
If I had to point out any redeeming feature of this movie then it would have to be the music. The music is artistic and quite pleasant and at least tried to make the film feel enjoyable for a few seconds.
Overall this movie is terrible...skip it!
