The Homage Wears Thin
24 February 2013 | by Theo RobertsonSee all my reviews

One can certainly see what the producers are trying to do here - make a tongue in cheek homage to all these old B movies where an expedition lands on a newly discovered island and then finding themselves in a battle for survival . Certainly it's not made with an eye for the Oscars , just basic brainless witty fun that you can enjoy in front of the TV with a carton of popcorn . The problem is that writer/director Jack Perez has failed to develop that important word " witty " and it shows

Back in the day these type of movies would feature a host of recognisable B movie actors . You'd probably have a problem naming them but you'd know their faces . Here however the only recognisable names are Carmen Electra , Burt Ward and Nick Carter . Take out Burt Ward and you instantly see what the age demographic for this film is , a fact reflected in the age group of the characters who find themselves trapped on the Island . In days of old these characters would be considerably older and have clearly delineated characters . Okay they'd be clichéd stereotypes such as square jawed hero , selfish bad guy and damsel in distress but that'd be preferable than the whiny teens seen here

I notice some people have been slightly forgiving to MONSTER ISLAND thinking it's a deliberately bad movie that is not to be taken seriously but again you have to question if this is actually the case . It's not so much the cheap special effects and small budget that brings the film down - it's the lack of wit and affection to the genre that sinks this movie
