When everyone gets in their new "monster trucks", they all put on 5-point harnesses. When Lucas Till is nearly pushed off the cliff, he isn't wearing a seat belt, and has to hang off the door to avoid falling. In the next scene, he is back in his harness. See more »
From the creator of ice age bring you a great little quirk film Monster trucks that will touch you heart & bring you to tears & laughter , this film truly is one of the guilty pleasure film that a across ET meet Herbie that you sure will love.
I went in to this film not knowing what to expect other than what was shown in the trailer, i was presently surprised on how good this film is for what it was , i loved the concept of this film as it not just one of the creatures from out of space type of film which is refreshing.
It's some much different which gives this film is edge , you really can help but fall in love with this creature he called screech , as it got this lovable adorable funny sense of humor for a creature that give it a personality which is great for the film.
Lucas Till is brilliant giving us the type of person that from a broken family , the step dads a bit of a jerk but he's brilliant playing this role who befriends screech together they make this film's adventure just that special brilliant chemistry between the characters as well really sell the film.
Jane Levy co-star playing the young girl who has a crush on Tripp playing the quirk girl reminds me of Lindsey Lohan character from Herbie in a way just as a side character as she unwittingly gets involved in trying to get screech home.
The the visual effect on the C.G.I is brilliant done , special when the design of the creature is brilliant done. One thing that stop this film from being one of those boring flopped film's IMO is the melt your heart moment in the film seriously touches you heart put a tear in your eye's.
It's beautifully done moments along with the action make this a worth while film to watch with your family , special ending the film was a beautiful way to end this type of film which i think a sequel could be done.
Dislikes : There is one moment in the film that a little unrealistic but this is a PG so you cant really have to much violence in this film.
