With Godzilla vs. Kong, we see two characters from different universes come together. And well, if you were to ask me, I’d say that this Godzilla vs. Kong review has quite the positives. The trailer of this film received a lot of love, and the movie too, promises to be a good watch. There are three other films in this franchise – Godzilla, Kong: Skull Island, and Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
As for the story of this movie, we see a class come about as Godzilla takes on an attack. Yep, unlike other times, he is shown to be the one creating havoc. Meanwhile, Kong is away on Skull Island. Dr Ilene Andrews (Rebecca Hall) is an anthropological linguist at the facility and is trying to speak to Kong. To her surprise, her mute daughter, Jia (Kaylee Hottle) seems to be getting along with Kong, and speak to him. Others in the cast of Godzilla vs. Kong include Dr. Nathan Lind (Alexander Skarsgård), Ren Serizawa (Shun Oguri), and Walter Simmons (Demián Bichir).
As known, Godzilla and Kong don’t get along well, and once Monarch gives Kong a heads up on the mission, the fight begins. Over a due course of events, we see Godzilla attack the ape, despite measures taken against it while they are on the ship. With one event after the other, more people get involved and a handful of people are out on a mission to track down what is going on.
So what do we think about everything that follows? For starters, the story of Terry Rossio, Michael Dougherty, and Zach Shields is an entertainer. The film has all the right things in just about the right amounts. With a great screenplay and a crisp storyline, we get the best of this monster verse after all. While there was more that was expected from a handful of human characters, the crux is maintained well. Nonetheless, there are some great tracks comprising the story and a tinge of good humour.
Before getting into the nitty-gritties of the Godzilla vs. Kong review, check the trailer:
Apart from the cast of Godzilla vs. Kong being an absolute entertainer, we have good direction. The film keeps up with the commercial aspect that it has to it, and yet, is simple. For those who take an interest in the franchise, they are in for an absolutely great 113 minutes. While there was more that could have been done as for the face-off, there’s still the climax that is a highlight. All in all, everything falls just about perfect. However, what could work against the film is seeing Godzilla in a new space. In some instances, things feel rushed, but in the end, it seems to make sense.
As for the Godzilla vs. Kong cast, Rebecca has done a great job, while we bet everyone looks forward to Kaylee. They both have done some of the finest scenes and best performances. Alexander has done exactly what is expected of him, while Brian is the entertainer he has always been. Everyone, including Julian Dennison, Shun Oguri, among others, fair well.
To sum up this Godzilla vs. Kong review, we’d say you don’t want to miss it. The film is made for the big screens and will suit the taste of the fans. In fact, the movie has been doing well at the box office so far, with fans enjoying it to their fullest!
