Yeti, Sasquatch, Bigfoot

review by
Mike Haberfelner

A.I. (Adam Singer), Ammorama (Aeon Cruz) and Kadabra (Dalena Nguyen) are a trio of cosplayers who rather pretentiously call themselves Monster Force Zero - after a comicbook they have created themselves and want to promote at a local comic con ... but that con's rather overflown by cosplayers and comicbooks nobody's aware of, so their appearance fails to impress. Actually the only ones they make any kind of impressions on are a gang of cosplaying bullies calling themselves Destroyers of Destruction (Heath C. Heine, Dmitri Raskes, Omid Harrison, Cali June) who challenge them to a duel on the convention's coveted party floor - which is a big deal, really, as this is a way to get noticed.

Now the duel's lorded over by Ann Unaki (Silvia Taziri), her second in command Igigi (Sly Clayton), Furrious (Leon Welling) and the Janitor (Pat Tanaka), who all seem to have a more sinister agenda than just staging a competition for fun - and really, during the competition, where our heroes are joined by a Yeti in boots (Shale Le Page), they all gain superpowers matching those their characters have in their comicbook - and since they manage to beat the Destroyers of Destruction, they're transported to another planet and sent on a mission after learning about some dubious intergalactic war that's apparently kicked off by one Doctor Eeche (Rachel Darden) and who needs to be stopped at all cost. Thing is, she's guarded by a Sasquatch (Greg Farinelli) and a dinosaur, and despite their fancy name, Monster Force Zero might not be up for that challenge. On top of that, who says they're even doing the right thing doing Ann Unaki's bidding? ...

 

Taking quite a few cues from Galaxy Quest, Monster Force Zero is actually a fun piece of lo-fi superhero cinema, one that centers on the entertainment value of its story, doesn't lose itself in too long-winded narrations or unnecessary subplots but seems to thoroughly enjoy its at times nonsensical narration and without losing the story's heart goes for comedy ever so often to keep things light - up to the point where the film makes fun of its own low-fi approach. Now true, this film might not be the re-invention of the wheel, but at the same time, you'd be hard-pressed to not be entertained while watching it.
