I use the term "mildly entertaining" very heavily
The premise is simple. Monsters battle wrestling style until one wins. There's no real story. The wrestling matches are pretty boring and the events in some of them seem quite random.
It plays out like a Pay-Per-View wrestling event. It also shows small segments about the characters before the fights begin.
The acting from Jimmy Hart is terrible, especially when interviewing the guy who organizes the event.
The makeup is pretty bad. It seems like the makeup from the history of the monsters and the wrestling matches are noticeably different. I found this pretty distracting.
There are a couple of good things that I found. Lance Henricksen's voice announcing is great. Super creepy. I also thought that the sound editing was very nicely done.
The thing about this movie is that by the time the final battle comes, you don't really care anymore. The feeling is so monotone and the fights are so dull that you really kind of want things to be finished just to move the movie along. Oddly enough, I did manage to not turn the movie off but I know I could have spent my time better.
Bottom line, if they cut some of the gore out, this would be an entertaining movie for kids 8-12 but for those who are serious fans of the horror genre, it's a pretty major disappointment.
