I loved this show, it started slow but then went into hyperdrive. I heard it did poorly at the box office, but it came out when theaters were at 25% capacity so if you do the math it was really very successful. The movie was over before I knew it, the hours flew past.
There wasn't a lot of dialogue, but similar to Clint Eastwood movies, what was said was more important than how much was said. Also, the two main characters, one from earth and one from the other world did not speak the same language. What a concept!! The one character on the other planet that did speak English had a plausible reason.
Monster Hunter (the game) fans were disappointed there were too few monsters, the ones in the movie were incredibly well done and hopefully there will be future movies that depict more of the monsters from the world. The Blue Ray and downloading of the movie will hopefully show the true potential of the franchise as opposed to the box office numbers in a pandemic when most were sheltering at home. If there hadn't been a pandemic my family would have definitely gone to the theater.
