Very fun and entertaining. But for being a "kids" moive, it can be rather dark.much better then the live action Monte hunter, great animation, amazing voice actors, top notch character and very emotional.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (1 ):

This action-packed fantasy film is surprisingly delightful. It serves an audience that might not be quite ready for Capcom's popular Monster Hunter video game franchise or the live-action Monster Hunter adaptation. It's thrilling and exciting, but not very gory (with purple monster guts, and a little red monster blood). With a strong emphasis on teamwork, characters have to learn to trust one another and face their past mistakes in order to move forward, grow, and ultimately solve their problems.

Though it's predictable at times, the movie has an encouraging message that even the youngest, least skilled people can play a part in helping others. With a runtime of 58 minutes, the movie feels like a long episode of a series. The story plays out as a flashback, with a cliffhanger that leads the viewer to believe that there's more to come.
