Rotten Tomatoes Rating: N/A
New York Post -
If you're willing to overlook some monstrously big plot holes and logic gaps, this half-animated Chinese blockbuster is an agreeably bonkers, occasionally disturbing cinematic ride.
The A.V. Club -
Monster Hunt combines a lot of qualities from the other items on the all-timer's list: epic action, elaborate special effects, broad comedy, and a style that could best be described as “exhausting.”
Movie Nation -
Take it as a transitional comedy for kids about to outgrow “Kung Fu Panda” and keep your expectations low - very low - and you won't mind it.
Village Voice -
There are some scary moments among the slapstick, and the picture surprisingly doesn't pull its punches during its Harry and the Hendersons-style denouement, but Monster Hunt is hindered by its overlong running time and often mawkish sentimentality.
Monster Hunt (2015)
The cute baby monster Huba is the child of a human man and a monster queen, threatened by both monster-hating humans and monsters attempting to capture the new-born in an ancient world based on medieval China.
