What the world needed

Monster Truck is one of the greatest movies ever made, move over godfather, Monster Trucks is king. With a very deep narrative, beautiful animation (Seriously sometimes I can't even tell if something is cgi or not) and comedy that rivals the greats such as Jerry Seinfeld, Kevin Hart and the greatest of them all, Adam Sandler, Monster Trucks will leave you on your knees begging for more.

I'm afraid that people are not ready for monster trucks. It has some fierce competition this January with movies like xXx and Resident Evil. Monster Trucks really should have been a summer movie or a Christmas movie, But unfortunately is has to compete with Heck Yeah! Its January! Where companies put out their better (but more experimental) films (Which I think is an insult to Monster Trucks because that movie is way out of those other movies leagues)

Monster Trucks will save us, but it needs your help. If you want Monster Trucks to save us from Trump, Kathleen Wynne, War, World Hunger and will even be there for you to save you, buy your tickets for Monster Trucks, because when Monster Truck succeeds, everyone does.
