Indie Movie Review – Monster Force Zero

Read Time:2 Minute, 34 Second

Sometimes you see a poster, a trailer, or a bit of blurb and just think “Yes! Give me a ticket!”. Actually, I think that’s kind of the point… ah well, excuse me having a senior moment! Anyway, Monster Force Zero is such a film.

I’ll say from the start that I’m not a CosPlayer. Not because I think it’s daft or geeky, which I acknowledge it is but, then again, so am I. It’s more because, when I was younger, I didn’t have the time, talent, or money to do it and now I have too many years under my belt. You can only have so much fun going as Alan Napier era Alfred. I do have friends and family that get dressed up and go to conventions and I do feel a bit jealous and wonder if this was going on outside of the USA when I was young enough to enjoy it.

Anyway, enough of my pining for centuries passed. The basic premise of Monster Force Zero is that there is a secret cabal of ancient aliens who have the power to give CosPlayers the powers of their characters. They then have to go and pitch battle with each other until the last group standing has to go and take on, wait for it… a T. Rex!

Yes, it sounds daft and, to a greater or lesser extent, it is but it’s delightfully tongue in cheek and everything is explained which is more than you get from Christopher Nolan! Alright, the textbook used by Calvin “A.I.” Cashill (Adam Singer) is Ancient Aliens by none other than Allen Smithee but at least they made an effort.

As I already said, I have no first hand experience of CosPlay or comic conferences so I don’t know if there are totally made up characters there or not. I know that Monster Force Zero is made up because A.I. is the author and is trying to get the franchise launched but I don’t know if the Destroyers Of Destruction are just made up to avoid punitive licensing fees or if D.I.Y. heroes are a thing but I’ll go with the former. Actually, Final Boss (Dmitri Raskes) is a brilliant, self referential name for a superhero! The funniest character all around is Gunns Lazer (No, I don’t know why it’s spelt like that!) played by Heath C Heine. In a film full of people just going for it and having fun he was the most amusing and furthest over the top!

I’m sure there’s scope for a drinking game or a film bingo because I found references (I think the youngsters call them Easter eggs or such like) to loads of films: Fifth Element, Close Encounters, Karate Kid, Star Trek, Lucy,  and that’s not including the extras/background people in costume or any others that I may have missed.

In short, if you’ve ever partaken in CosPlay or imagined being a superhero, give this a watch.

Movie Watching Must Have!!

I go feral for this app. I love it so much and I wish everyone knew about it and used it. It is incredibly useful and I would be devastated if this app ever disappeared. Things I love: 1) the pee times! It’s so handy to know the best time to go and then read the synopsis of what’s happening while I’m gone. I never have to worry about missing the good bits! 2) knowing if there is a post-credits scene or not. This might be my fav feature because I would have missed out on some pretty critical scenes if it weren’t for RunPee. 3) the movie review and viewer rankings. This info has made me watch some movies that I normally wouldn’t and it’s nice seeing things outside of my usual scope. 4) that it’s a small family run business. I love shopping small and it really does feel like I’m part of the RunPee family! If you reach out to them, Dan will personally respond to you and he is so warm and helpful. GET THIS APP AND THEN SUBSCRIBE! It is absolutely worth it and you’ll be using it again and again!

  1. This sounds like a must see for CosPlay fans. That alone should cover the cost of making this movie.

  2. What a wonderful review!

  3. I really thought Garret Wang would have a real part in this. Trek fans will be a bit put out. But it was still a worthwhile romp.

    Heath C. Heine did a great “Biff’ rip — as if that Back to the Future character had superpowers.

    Still not sure what exactly was up with the T-Rex. It was like something Dr Evil would have wanted (Dinosaurs with freaking LASER BEAMS on their heads!)

  4. This one also has Heath and armed T-Rexes…this must be a thing~

  5. Oops! My bad… Garrett Wang had such a small part (≈ 3 minutes) that I forgot to mention him in the review. Any Voyager fans looking at this just fir GW would be disappointed… good job there’s plenty of other stuff going on!

  6. Oh, I think it might be a new trope… when in doubt, throw in a dinosaur!
