Monster Hunter Review – The Plot

The movie’s story goes with a ‘New World’, where the humans lived peacefully with the huge monster species. A ship is attached in which a ‘Hunter’( A warrior trained to kill monsters and creatures) gets separated from his teammates.

In the real human world, the Captain of the United States Army ‘Natalie Artemis’ and her army were looking for missing soldiers in the desert; suddenly, a massive storm appeared, which took Artemis and her army into a portal to the New World.

Artemis and the US army find remains of the missing soldiers in the New World. A subterranean monster called ‘Diablos’ approaches them. From another point, the Hunter keeps observing the Artemis squad and the monster. He tries to warn Artemis with bullets and grenades, because of which the Diablos attacks and kills many members from the squad of Artemis.

Running from there, the few survivors try to hide in a cave where they encounter a pack of creatures like spiders called Nersyllas. Later everyone gets killed, but only ‘Natalie Artemis’ survives; while trying to escape, she runs into the ‘Hunter,’ where they fight before agreeing to cooperate to stay alive. Hunter and  Artemis learn about the portal and that it is created by a Sky Tower( a structure located across the desert). Hunter also tells Artemis that to reach the Tower, they have to kill Diablos.

Artemis learns to fight with Hunter’s unique blade-like weapon and sets a trap to kill Diablos and Nersyllas venom. The trap was successful, but Hunter gets badly injured and wounded; Artemis dutifully carries wounded Hunter on a makeshift stretcher across the desert.

Both of them reach an Oasis polluted by herbivores tortoise-looking creatures called Apceros. Hunter tells Artemis that his family and the missing soldiers that Artemis was looking for was killed by Rathalos, a dragon-like creature who breathes fire.


Rathalos flies over, which creates panic in Apceros, leading them to stampede in this panic situation. Artemis and Hunter are rescued by a group of hunters and their chieftain, the ‘Admiral.’ Admiral & Artemis finds out that the first civilization created the Tower to inhabit the new world monsters are to protect them.

Artemis agrees with Hunter and Admiral to kill Rathalos so that she can go back home. The war begins between Artemis’ army and Ranthlos, but after the battle, Artemis falls through a portal into the Real World. Still, unfortunately, the portal does not shut down in time, leading the Rathalos to break and destroy the portal. Artemis tries to proceed for Hunter to slip through the doorway and deliver its fatal shot.

Artemis has the chance to stay in the real world, but she chooses to go back to New World and remain with the Hunters, but then the Admiral reaches to Artemis, informing her about another monster, a black wyvern called ‘Gore Magala.

He tells Artemis that as soon as the portal remains open, there will be a constant threat of monsters passing through the real world; with this, Artemis and the Hunters have a new mission to seal the portal for the sake of the real world.
