“The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.”
My expectations were pretty low going in and the film pretty much met them. For those wondering, the 2014 film is WAY better than this one. The plot is way too bloated with characters you really don’t care about at all and that was most everyone’s complaints about the first film. Besides getting ‘The Last Jedi’ vibes from the casting, the whole “humans is the problem with Earth’ angle is severely played out because that plot is in about 4-5 movies every month now, we get it Hollywood, you think we are all going to die in 12 years. Visually the film looks good, the monster fights are exciting but there simply isn’t enough in the film to save it. Godzilla: King of the Monsters repeats a lot of the same mistakes through a painfully slow and confusing 1st half but the end fight makes it not terrible.
Kong has NO CHANCE against Godzilla.
