“Monster Hunter” is a 2020 actionfantasy film directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, based on the popular Capcom video game series of the same name. The story follows a group of soldiers led by Captain Natalie Artemis () who are transported to an alternate world inhabited by dangerous and gigantic monsters. In this new world, they must learn to adapt and survive while battling these formidable creatures. The film primarily focuses on the action and battles against various monsters.


“Monster Hunter” received generally negative reviews from both critics and audiences. It was criticized for its weak storyline, lack of character development, and a heavy reliance on action sequences at the expense of a coherent plot. Some fans of the video game series were also disappointed with the film's adaptation, feeling that it didn't capture the essence of the games.


“Monster Hunter” did not receive significant awards or nominations. It was not recognized for its critical or artistic achievements.


Despite the negative critical reception, “Monster Hunter” managed to find a niche audience among fans of action-oriented, monster-based films. Its popularity is primarily within the context of the video game series it was based on, and it has gained a following among fans of that franchise. However, it did not achieve widespread acclaim or popularity beyond this niche audience.
