I like the idea that the first film review on this blog was December 2009 and about that sci-fi epic Avatar and the last review of 2010 will be a film that can be considered the anti-Avatar, the low budget Monsters.
Six years ago a space probe was launched to collect samples. On its return, it broke up over Central America leaving in its wake new biological life. Andrew Kaulder (Scoot McNairy) is a cynical photojournalist working for New World Chronicle in Mexico. He is searching for the perfect shot of a monster, especially one causing tragedy. He is asked to escort an injured Sam Wynder (Whitney Able), daughter of the man who owns New World Chronicle, to a sea port to get her back to America. Unfortunately, they have to travel overland through Central America to the US border.
