Looking for any way to get away from the life and town he was born into, Tripp (Lucas Till), a high school senior, builds a Monster Truck from bits and pieces of scrapped cars. After an accident at a nearby oil-drilling site displaces a strange and subterranean creature with a taste and a talent for speed, Tripp may have just found the key to getting out of town and a most unlikely friend.
This light-hearted fun movie had some heart-touching moments and important messages. This was truly an enjoyable movie with some interesting effects and fun time taking a pun on the term Monster Trucks by having actual monsters in the trucks. With some romantic moments and concepts of the true bond an animal can have with a human these moments were heart warming. The truly interesting part came when there was an examination on animal cruelty and the ethics of both science and large companies where the means justifies the end leant a larger and interesting ethical storyline mixed in with a light hearted story full of some truly awesome cars.
Keep Calm and Read (Watch) On,
