  1. There is a nice mix of action with tender moments -- especially among the misfit monsters

    A film of chuckles, smiles and light amusement rather than big laughs, galvanizing excitement and original invention.

    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.
