Goofs

"General" Horne played by SyFy movie regular Eric Roberts is allegedly a member of the New Zealand Coast Guard. In reality, general officers commonly exist in Air Forces, Armies and Marines. There are several instances where Horne's uniform can be closely observed.

Horne is incorrectly wearing a Navy "dress white" uniform instead of a khaki-colored combat uniform. The layout of patches is highly inaccurate. Instead of wearing a name badge, he wears a patch displaying in all-caps the word "Navy". Horne's uniform displays three large stars above his right shirt pocket. Three naval stars commonly indicate the rank of Vice Admiral. The shoulder patches he wears are incorrect and are actually the patches of a New Zealand Naval Sub Lieutenant. Horne can be seen wearing full service medals on his uniform which would only be worn in ceremonies and not in combat. See more »

Even for The Aslyum, a letdown.
5 June 2019 | by kevinxirauSee all my reviews

I first came to know of The Asylum through their infamous Mega Shark series and other wacky monster films, which were fun trash to watch (key word being "fun"). So, when I heard they were doing their own version of the classic Monster Island (an idea first introduced in the Godzilla franchise), I was curious to see. Needless to say, I was disappointed.

So, the plot goes that a deep-sea prospecting expedition disturbs a kaiju, which threatens the world. While the military tries in vain to kill the creature, a team of scientists heads out to find an equally powerful creature to stop it. Sounds like a nice setup for all kinds of crazy carnage, right? Too bad, barely anything happens. The Asylum is known for making films featuring mass destruction and over-the-top action but this film surprisingly underplays it. Anything that is remotely exciting happens literally for a few seconds at a time with the rest just being the characters just observing and talking for long stretches of time. Monster Island itself isn't even the main focus, only appearing within the climax of the film and the actual "battles" between the monsters are uneventful and last as long as a blink of an eye.

I'll give the film credit that the graphics and animation have improved somewhat since the first Mega Shark, the creature designs are decent, most of the acting is adequately straightforward with a few silly performances, and the kaiju lore is okay if derivative. Sadly, this is all bogged down given how there's little payoff or excitement to be had here. All in all, "Monster Island" is a snooze and should simply be skipped.
