Village Voice - Unnamed
The grandeur of the effects--the honest-to-God spectacle of the thing--elevates Monsters vs. Aliens to something approaching art. It's not a masterpiece, but it's most certainly a milestone.

Slate - Unnamed
The richly multilayered picture tends to have a gently immersive effect, akin to a stroll through the world's most expensive diorama.
75
Charlotte Observer - Lawrence Toppman
The movie may best be appreciated by people who know the references. All five monsters come from low-budget science fiction films of the 1950s.
70
The Hollywood Reporter - Kirk Honeycutt
There is a nice mix of action with tender moments -- especially among the misfit monsters
70
Variety - Todd McCarthy
A film of chuckles, smiles and light amusement rather than big laughs, galvanizing excitement and original invention.
