It wasn't as if I was deliberately trying to hate the movie, far from it, and I never try to do that watching any movie as I believe in being fair and encouraging when watching and critiquing. Any movie that aims to be a homage or poking fun at anything does promise to be good entertainment, and actually despite having Carmen Electra Monster Island did seem as though it would be one of those movies. Even when taking it for what it is though, the bad execution just took away from my enjoyment of the movie. It does have redeeming qualities of course, the production design is decent, the music score rousing, Adam West is a lot of fun even if hammy and Mary Elizabeth Winstead is very endearing here. However, I didn't like the look of the special effects at all, the monsters(looking at home in the 50s era but seem laughable now) seemed half-finished and fake, and actually I do agree with the commentator that wasn't sure about whether they were trying to honour or poke fun at those of Harryhausen(which I have always found amazing for their time and ones that still hold up). Some will like the tongue-in-cheek humour, for me the dialogue was lacking in wit and in freshness too and came across as awkward instead, the stupidest line going to West as outlined in a previous review. The story seemed stretched and contrived, with the horror elements ranging from tame to non-descript, while the characters are cardboard and irritating. Aside from West and Winstead, the rest of the acting is bland. That is especially the case with Carmen Electra, contrary to what was implied in the marketing she is only in the film 15-20 minutes and she doesn't do anything other than try and look pretty. Just in case I get flamed(and knowing the type of movie Monster Island is I know eventually I will do), I understand totally what Monster Island was trying to do, I just felt that it tried so hard that everything to make a homage/parody work just got lost. That is of course my opinion, and if you think differently(and I can completely understand if that's the case) that's fine, I have nothing against you. In conclusion, even when taking into account what Monster Island was trying to do I didn't care for it at the end of the day, sorry. 4/10 Bethany Cox

I kinda expect someone like Carmen Electra to appear in a made for MTV piece of nonsense like Monster Island, but I was surprised to see Mary Elizabeth Winstead&#39;s name in the credits - it just goes to show that we all have to start somewhere. The presence of the lovely Miss Winstead was the impetus I needed to watch this movie, but to be fair, I was surprised how much I enjoyed the whole thing, regardless of Mary and her marvellous midriff.<br/><br/>The film is set on the eponymous island, located in the Bermuda Triangle, where MTV competition winner Josh (Daniel Letterle) and his classmates arrive for the recording of the channel&#39;s Tropical Weekend Getaway, the host of which is Carmen Electra. Unfortunately, as Carmen is performing a musical number in front of her fans, she is whisked away to a nearby mountain by a giant flying ant. In order to impress his ex-girlfriend Maddy (Winstead), Josh declares that he will rescue Carmen; he is accompanied on his quest by several others, Maddy included.<br/><br/>This deliberately cheesy film boasts deliberately cheesy performances (Adam West as Dr. Harryhausen being the hammiest), and features plenty of deliberately cheesy scenes with deliberately cheesy special effects, although, having said that, fans of stop-motion animation will almost certainly get a kick out of the film&#39;s massive praying mantises, which are far better than expected.<br/><br/>B-movie fans will also probably enjoy the silly &#39;man in a rubber suit&#39; monster Piranha Man, who emerges from a swamp to attack the group, and the oversized ants at the mountain (which turns out to be a giant nest). In addition to the giant critters, the film features plenty of eye-candy: Carmen Electra wears a skimpy animal skin outfit, Winstead doesn&#39;t (but still looks hotter), and Chelan Simmons as Josh&#39;s ditzy blonde sister Jen is also appealing.<br/><br/>Monster Island is by no means a great film, but those who enjoy dumb creature features should still derive a reasonable amount of enjoyment from the crazy monsters and the general silliness of the whole thing.

Well, given the movie&#39;s cover, I was expecting that I would be in for a movie that would be an homage to the 1950s and 1960s creature features, so of course I opted to sit down and watch the 2004 movie &quot;Monster Island&quot;. Had I heard about the movie prior to sitting down here in 2021 to watch it? No.<br/><br/>And I will say that writers Jack Perez and Adam Glass didn&#39;t really manage to concoct a wholesome movie. There was just something ultra cheesy and low budget about this entire movie, and not in a good sense. It was so difficult to get into the vibe of the movie and enjoy it. I suppose it was a combination of the dubious acting performances and the insanely laughably bad special effects.<br/><br/>The storyline in &quot;Monster Island&quot; wasn&#39;t exactly innovative or particularly interesting. It was all something that had been done and seen before, so the writers weren&#39;t exactly dishing out new stuff here. And I do enjoy monster movies, but the special effects in this movie definitely had emphasis on &#39;special&#39;, believe you me.<br/><br/>Visually then &quot;Monster Island&quot; was bad, so very, very bad. And those laughable effects just made it so very difficult to sit through this movie and take it serious. Sure, &quot;Monster Island&quot; is labeled as an adventure comedy horror movie, but it didn&#39;t really deliver much on any of those accounts.<br/><br/>The movie does have the likes of Carmen Electra and Adam West on the cast list, if that would tickle your fancy.<br/><br/>Ultimately, then &quot;Monster Island&quot; was a lousy movie experience, and certainly not one I would recommend you waste your time, money or effort on.<br/><br/>My rating of &quot;Monster Island&quot; lands on a generous three out of ten stars.
