I really enjoyed this despite the, at times, slow pace
29 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had no idea what this was when I sat down to watch it, and my first thought was 'what the hell is this?' It took a few minutes to realize that, instead of being a totally inept movie, this was a spoof of old action/adventure films, particularly serials. I ended up enjoying the movie and am glad to have seen it.

For a movie that is really over the top, it is quite subtly done. I know that those two things seem contradictory, but they both apply. The subtleties are what make this work.

However, this movie takes a bit of flexibility to enjoy. If you go into it with preconceptions of what it should be, you could be quite disappointed. Regardless, I heartily recommend _Monarch of the Moon_.
