Alternate Versions

The first print submitted to the BBFC in the UK was granted a '15' certificate on 14 August 2014 uncut with a theatrical running time of 122 minutes and 55 seconds but later cited with remarks stating "Following a request from the distributor, this determination is currently under reconsideration." On 22 January 2015 the film was again granted a '15' certificate from the same distributor, Hammingden Pictures Ltd, with a reduced theatrical running time of 118 minutes and 47 seconds. This work is stated as 'uncut' however, some 4 minutes have been removed from the original print submitted which is also verified by the reduced film length. All details are on the UK BBFC website.

Boring, Boring, and More Boring
14 March 2015 | by chrismackey1972See all my reviews

OMG! I just saw this and...don't! It was soooo boring. It was NOTHING like the first movie. I know the director said it wasn't a sequel, but still, it was not good. A big problem was the title. It's called Monster: The Dark Continent. The dark continent is what Africa's known as. However, this movie seemed more like a film about the Iraq war with the monsters as a very distant backdrop. Granted, they didn't say they were in Iraq. I don't actually recall them saying where the film took place.

Some said the acting was bad. I didn't have a problem with the acting. The cinematography was good. I just expected something VERY different.

Some of the monsters were like galloping antelope. Others were like birds. Some seemed like walking trees. The point is, they didn't come across as any sort of a threat. As I said, boring.

I gave this a 4-star rating. I do not recommend. Watch the first one, and look at that as a one-story movie. This one didn't do anything but bore me to tears. Now I'm really tired. When I feel like going to sleep after watching a movie -- in the early evening -- that's how I can tell a movie sucked.
