But Tenneson tells them to go on and something happens. Something came out and Tenneson wants to keep it quiet by keeping what came out on ice. In the town, something's been taking the fuel tanks off vehicles, leaving a big hole. Tripp, who lives in the town is frustrated at his life, specifically not having a vehicle of his own.

Watched Monster trucks today with my five year old son and we both
loved it. He was pretty much glued to the screen the entire time and he
got a bit teary at the end! The film centres on a lad who spends all

three undiscovered squid like creatures escape from a nearby oil
drilling project. One of these finds his way into the truck and ends up
powering it and of course the usual bad guys want it back story line
evolves. Nothing new in terms of originality or plot, in fact it had so
many plot holes it was ridiculous but it's a kids film. Actors did a
good job and the monsters were likable. Quite a lot of action and
humour too, it's never dull. Definitely a boys/male film I think in my
opinion. a kind of a cross between "the legend of the waterhorse", "ET"
and "Herbie" Recommended.
