Surely we will never find in that window of the largest screen ever thought that cinema is a more monstrously beautiful act of love like the one that Paul W. S. Anderson has dedicated to his wife, Milla Jovovich, in Monster Hunter. Not Josef von Sternberg with Marlene Dietrich, Renny Harlin with Geena Davis or John Derek with Bo Derek. The letter of surrendered passion and fascination that the director dedicates to the actress here, in this film that makes XXL size (creatures, weapons, egos, jokes …) a declaration of principles, goes beyond their collaboration since always , a crush and a complicity that has defeated any zombie apocalypse (Resident Evil) or any steampunk trip to the adventure drama (The Three Musketeers). Monster Hunter is the Jovovich as an iconic magazine foldout, as a fetish poster that sums up, recycles and sublimates all the heroines of the popular, fandom and film imaginary. Leader of a savage group that looks more like the hooligan version of an anime than the original video game, this Captain Artemis is the true mistress of a Wagnerian variant of Dune sampled to a trash metal beat by gigantic Japanese Saturday night cartoon monsters. the morning.

In times of Zoom movies, small interiors and huge claims, of, in short, the denial of cinema as a bizarre spectacle, Monster Hunter arrives, with that stubborn series B armor with means so expensive to Anderson and Jovovich, to be the most effective Pandemic Artie Boredom Vaccine. What better remedy to put an end to pseudo-Cassavetes and the sleeping pill of the new indie than take pirates down through desert dunes like in a comic by Druillard or Enrique Breccia; that swords of a size that would provoke the erection of the longed-for Paul Verhoeven of Starship Troopers (The Space Brigades) mutilating beasts of a hypervitaminated kaiju eiga … What a torrent of imagination, humor and debauchery. Than a director in love giving his beloved a Taj Mahal of shameless action.
