The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - Barry Hertz
Monster Hunter is all sorts of super-dumb fun. And though its middle section lags – there are only so many training montages audiences can handle – Anderson and his wife Jovovich prove that their long-running Resident Evil franchise was no fluke: this is a couple who know how to take the flimsiest of video games and turn them into self-knowing slices of cinematic ridiculousness.

The A.V. Club - Ignatiy Vishnevetsky
There’s a couple badass heroes with humongous swords, a few big scaly monstrosities, and frequently not much else. The minimalism is consistent with Anderson’s career-long devotion to delivering caloric content with an unlikely combo of classical unities and pounding, insta-dated electronic beats. The movie’s called Monster Hunter—what more could it reasonably need?

Variety - Peter Debruge
Very little of Monster Hunter makes sense, but it’s visually interesting at least and not un-fun to stream at home with a friend, asking questions and cracking jokes along the way.

Slant Magazine - Pat Brown
Paul W.S. Anderson has simply combined the established iconography of the popular Capcom game franchise with prefab movie moments.

Entertainment Weekly - Christian Holub
Plot doesn't really matter, there's not much character development to speak of, but there is a lot of fighting against an endless swarm of enemies.
