Okay, maybe it's not a true 5-star film, and if you go into this expecting to be blown away, you'll probably end up disappointed.
But, as one of those films that will keep you watching along without losing interest while your little one goes ga-ga over the trucks and lovable "Creech," Monster Trucks ticks all the boxes.
This was my son's first "in-theater" film at 3 years old. As 3 year olds are known to do, I worried it might end in chasing him through the aisles if the movie failed to keep his attention. Instead, he was talking about it long after we left, and ended up promising him the movie for his 4th birthday.
He was ECSTATIC to get his Monster Trucks movie, as well as 2 included wall stickers. (Note: copies without the blu ray jacket make no mention of including the stickers, and the store I purchased this at had no more with the jacket. Uncertain if copies without the slipcover include these or not).
Fact is, someone mucked up when they shelved Monster Trucks for a long period before putting it in the theater. Creech is fun, there's plenty of truck chases, action, and humor.
The best part of the movie, as good as it is, is looking over to your car or monster (or both) loving child, and seeing them enthralled and having a great time. A perfect movie for parents and kids!
