Monumental: The Journey of two characters goin through heartaches and overcoming it
My first impression of Monumental was that this is a phenomenal story. There is a lot the film has going for it. This was actually the film that made me a Gary Cairns fan because his performance in this film was so good that I noticed his true acting range. Luke Albright is another actor that is also someone to look out for. I love the fact that the road trip these guys took in this film was real. And you can see all the things they go through has some way, shape or form has made them a better person. The character story is phenomenal. My main gripe with the film is from a technical standpoint. The way some shots were edited didn't turn out all that great. Including some of the sound edit. But when you learn what they had to go through to get the shots with the constant hurdles they had to go through...to me it was obvious they did the best they could with they were able to pull off. I appreciate that Gary who also wrote the script, really focused on making a compelling character story and it shows. After watching this film, I saw great potential and if given te opportunity both Gary and Luke I believe can show what they're really capable of to a mainstream audience. I would definitely recommend checking out the film and don't let the technical flaws of the film deter you from finish watching it...because you would miss out on seeing what these guys are truly capable of pulling off...especially if given the budget, time and resources. Cheers.
