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.

The first movie had more of an original concept but I like how this film was made
21 April 2015 | by subxerogravitySee all my reviews

The movie is called Monsters, but similar to the first, the monsters have so little to do with the story, even more so in the second than the first.

It's all about male bonding during military time as a platoon of boys from the same hood in Detroit go to war together in the Middle East.

The picture moves quickly, never a dull moment, very kinetic movement. Good action and lots of good war scenes.

The acting could used improvement. All the screaming and crotch grabbing did not convince me of their military standpoint.

But director Tom Green is definitely a good visual artist here. The imagery was very instance. Very good cinematography.

Visual effects were decent as well.

Total exploitation of war that ads a sci-fi fantasy elements with the monsters, used only as a backdrop no different than the dessert the movie takes place in.

Overall, I like the movie, despite how little the monsters have to do with the story at all. It seems misleading going into it, however.
