We know it can be difficult to decide on the best movies to watch in the era of streaming services, with so many possible options on the likes of Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Disney Plus. But one action movie has been standing out on Netflix in recent days.

The 2020 video game movie Monster Hunter, starring Milla Jovovich, has risen to number three on the Netflix UK chart this week, with viewers flocking to the monster movie.

Jovovich takes on the lead role in the science fiction movie, teaming up once again with her husband and frequent Resident Evil movie director Paul W. S. Anderson.

She portrays the brilliantly named US Army Ranger Natalie Artemis, who is pulled into a portal that transports her to the New World. There, humanity lives alongside the constant threat posed by enormous, lethal monsters. Ron Perlman is also part of the cast.
