The movie starts with a segment that takes place during the events of the last Legendary outing and features Dr’s Mark and Emma Russell looking for their son either during or directly after a battle between Godzilla and the MUTOs. and sets the stage for all of the events to take place during the course of the film.
I know it’s just a monster movie but I don’t wanna spoil too much of it for the reader because i feel that folks are entitled to their own opinion on things like this, regardless of it being an Oscar-worthy film, or a movie about monsters destroying each other and us in the process. But here are some takeaways:
1 .The film has just about the same amount of human drama as the last film. Everyone seems to be saying that this film has nothing but Godzilla and in actuality, we get about as much (if not more or it) as we do in the first one. Every time some cool fight between the “titans” was about to commence, they would find a way to block it so we don’t see it. Much like the last movie but on a much grander scale.
2. You see more in the way of monster battles and what you see is awesome but at the same
time is kind of a letdown. Almost like we’d seen it before. When I go to see a film called
KING OF THE MONSTERS, I kind of expect a giant battle royal between the beasts that just tears the fabric of the planet into turmoil.
3. The nostalgia was a nice touch. The twins, the original themes, they all played very well in
the heart of the old Godzilla inside of me.
In the end, though, KING OF THE MONSTERS doesn’t earn it’s crown. It’s definitely a movie that you need to see on the big screen because watching this on a laptop isn’t going to the amazing visuals justice. Those alone are worth the price of admission. So that’s why I am giving GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS 3 out of 5
