I have waited a long time for this movie, and to be perfectly clear I have been a life long Godzilla fan. I watched them growing up with my dad, and loved the original Godzilla vs Kong. I even watched the original King Kong and it’s lesser known cousin of sorts Mighty Joe Young. (Different gorilla made by some of the same people)
That being said, I went into this movie with small expectations because all I wanted was to watch the monkey punch the lizard and the lizard set the monkey on fire. Oh and I really would have been upset if Kong didn’t Shove a tree or something down Godzillas throat.
Truthfully, I more or less got all of that. The action scenes were amazing with special effects that are probably second to none. If you are simply looking for a monster movie,where stuff gets destroyed and monsters beat the holy hell out of each other, this movie is absolutely amazing.
That being said, if you are looking for an amazing story, keep looking. The story here is passable at best with much of it clearly being tossed together to make there be a reason for them to fight with a surprise ending. I don’t say this as a bad thing, that is all these movies have ever needed and all they ever will need.
I loved this movie, and I will watch it again. There were things that bothered me but I won’t place them here to avoid spoilers, just know if you go into this wanting more than a passable story and giant monsters beating on each other, you will be disappointed. But if like me, if thats all you want, you will be more than happy. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
