(2020) (Milla Jovovich, Tony Jaa) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Action: An Army Ranger joins forces with a primitive hunter in an alternate world to battle the enormous monsters that live there.
Captain Artemis (MILLA JOVOVICH) is an Army ranger who's leading a squadron -- consisting of Lincoln (TIP "T.I." HARRIS), Marshall (DIEGO BONETA), Dash (MEAGAN GOOD), and Steeler (JOSH HELMAN) -- in search of another Army squadron that mysteriously vanished without a trace. They soon learn why as they're quickly overcome by an immense storm that sends them through some sort of dimensional portal to a desert world. There, they find the remains of the missing squadron, but also a gargantuan monster that's seemingly immune to their firepower and quickly makes waste of them.
Able to escape from a nest teeming with huge spider-like monsters, Artemis ends up the lone survivor and eventually finds a graveyard of wrecked schooners from long ago. There, she runs into a primitive man, the Hunter (TONY JAA), who initially views her as an enemy and vice-versa. But they quickly realize -- despite not speaking the other's tongue -- they must team up to survive the monster attacks, eventually running into The Admiral (RON PERLMAN) who knows the lay of the land, much like the Hunter.
Facing an even more deadly monster, they do what they can to fend off that fire-breathing dragon, all while Artemis hopes to get back to the portal to return to her world.
