Monsters vs. Aliens (2009)

()

Animation, Action, Adventure |

Monsters vs. Aliens is a American 3D computer-animated science fiction comedy film produced by DreamWorks Animation and distributed by Paramount Pictures and DreamWorks’ second monster hit after Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit.

The film involves a group of monsters (Susan, a.k.a Ginormica, a woman who was hit by a giant asteroid on her wedding day and grew to be 50 feet tall, B.O.B, an indestructible gelatinous mass created when a dessert topping was combined with a tomato, Dr. Cockroach, a scientist who became a bug man after his experiment went wrong, the Missing Link, a 20,000 year old macho fish man who was thawed out by Arctic explorers, and Insectosaurus, a 350 foot tall grub after being mutated by nuclear radiation) hired by the United States Armed Forces to stop an alien invasion in exchange for freedom.

In Modesto, California, Susan Murphy is going to be married to news weatherman, Derek Dietl. Just before the ceremony, she is struck by a meteorite and its energy causes her to glow green and grow to an enormous size with her hair turning white during the wedding. A U.S. military detachment tranquilizes and captures her. She awakens in a top-secret maximum security government prison facility that houses monsters of which the public are ignorant of, where she meets General W.R. Monger, the Army officer in charge of the facility and her fellow monster inmates: Dr. Cockroach Ph.D., a scientist who became half-human, half-cockroach after an experiment gone wrong; B.O.B. (Benzoate Ostylezene Bicarbonate), a brainless and living mass of blue goo that is a result of a food flavoring mutation; Insectosaurus, a massive bug mutated by nuclear radiation standing 350 feet in height; and the Missing Link, a prehistoric 20,000-year-old fish-ape hybrid who was thawed from deep ice by scientists.
