  • I cherished this film, however, I feel like they truly made it predisposition towards Kong and not Godzilla as though he isn't the hero as well, I feel like they sincerely attempted to make everyone like Kong and not as much Godzilla by painting Kong the overarching hero and making everybody root for him and making Godzilla appear as though a poop chute by making him pursue Kong constantly and furthermore maniacally smile as he atomic breathed Kong. Mothra saved Godzilla in King of the Monsters to overcome King Ghidorah so Godzilla could save everybody on the planet from Ghidorah's wrath and I unquestionably feel like they made this more about Kong than Godzilla. The suggestion for kong being the better guy to Godzilla is certainly there even though Godzilla himself is a hero too. I don't believe Godzilla would care whether or not he was the best as they made it appear in the movie, making him stomp on Kong although (badass) making him look like a douche who cared that he was the best he's saved everybody in all the concurrent movies such as Godzilla 2014 and Godzilla king of the monsters. I guess what I'm trying to say is Godzilla is a good guy too, not a bad guy as the movie had biased undertones for, also clarification for the "portraying Godzilla out of character remark". :)

  • I desperately wanted to love this movie but my brain wouldn’t allow it. Just like KOTM, this movie further grows the disconnect between Godzilla 2014 and the rest of the Monsterverse. I wish they would’ve kept the more realistic and reserved approach that 2014 and Skull Island gave us. Now we have monsters that move faster than people, no sense of scale, Guardians of The Galaxy level tech, ridiculously over the top battles, and a constant need for suspension of disbelief. I mean, if you wanted to see the MCU with monsters than good for you. That’s basically what the Monsterverse is at this point.

  • I watched this movie for less than 20 minutes and I didn't like it. It's really that women are the main/important characters in the movie. When that little mute girl called that scientist a coward via sign language, I didn't like that. What person won't be afraid of king kong? Male or female? Clearly all the female characters are smart, brave, daring and way more intelligent than the male characters. The woman that came on board the ship to offer assistance with the mission, did she have to be a cockie bitch?

  • I didn't like the movie, wish they had focused more on a smaller cast of characters instead of putting some in for no reason, or just for comedic relief. But I could live with characters being shit in a good monster movie, what really gets me here is that I thought most of the action scenes were boring as hell! They did way too many monster face close ups, not enough shots to show the scale well, not enough "zoomed out" shots. The entire scene where they fight in HK at night with the lit up buildings looked like they were playing with toys or something. I was kinda disappointed.

  • I'll give it a d. Its just like every monster movie. Kids leading the plot. They wasted godzilla's potential. It seems like godzilla had more connection with the hollow than Kongs. The script is not funny at all. The logic of the characters is really frustrating. is Its just predictable and cliche. And it should be titled Kong.

  • eh i think the only problem i had with this movie was the lack of the human perspective, i wanted to feel like i was there witnessing these two kings battle it out but it looked like a youtube video of a komodo dragon and a chimp play fighting on a cardboard city set, to me the fight didnt feel all that real. I also dont really like how this and kotm doesnt really take itself seriously which is why i like godzilla 2014 and skull island, those two movies were serious about monsters and had good build ups, i could honestly care less about how goofy and cheesy the japanese versions were, i liked the american take on the first two monsterverse films. all i can say is i did like this movie much better than kotm cuz at least the human characters are a tad bit more interesting

  • The only beautiful thing in the movie was godzilla and kong... The other things didn't make sense at all like the plot... The other thing is i hated the teenagers who broke into the company's acting as well as that woman who were with the kid.. if you remove them the whole movie wouldn't be effected at all

  • After watching Godzilla vs Kong. I watched Godzilla King of the monsters. And i gotta say movie wise Godzilla KOM was better at least in my opinion, the plots , storylines , the characters, everything was well written. However, action wise Godzilla vs Kong was Crazy af, so it was entertaining and so no one cares bout the plotholes. But for me i like movies when the content of the movie is awesome and well written 💃

  • Question and a possible plot hole. If Mecha-Godzilla was really Ghidorah (brain). Why wasn't there severe storms appearing with yellow lightning ⚡🌩️ Just like what happened every time King Ghidorah appeared in Godzilla: King of the monsters? It's clear that there was like a telekinesis thing going on which is why the three heads thing.

    • @I AM THE REAPER Thank you. Cool answer and makes a lot of sense now that I read it.

      Justin BoroughsJustin BoroughsPäivä sitten
    • Ghidorah created those storms only when he was still alive and fully intact. His body could channel tremendous amounts of electricity which means he could resonate with the earth's electromagnetic field and therefore have an effect on the weather all across the planet.

It seems like godzilla had more connection with the hollow than Kongs. The script is not funny at all. The logic of the characters when they enter the hollow Its just predictable and cliche. And it should be titled Kong.

  • The best thing about this movie is the way it keeps the themes of both movies. In Kong it's "we didn't lose the war. We abandoned it" and Godzilla's "the only way to heal out wounds is by making peace with the demons who created it"

    • @Rensten Nice of you basically trying to justify your toxic attitude just because some other Kong a holes do it, let's be honest there's obviously more toxic Godzilla fanboys then there is Kong, Godzilla has a bigger fan community anyways

    • @Rensten Someone got offended, you act like Godzilla doesn't have plot armour, matter of fact the movie itself is filled with Plot Armour

      Harvey de ArtusHarvey de Artus2 päivää sitten
    • @Harvey de Artus I could say the same thing about you Kong fans crying about plot armor when he was littered with it, or making up as much excuses as you can to make it like kong won against Godzilla because of shoulda woulda or coulda, it ain’t self ego when the things were portrayed in the movie were there. Kong put up a good fight and went out like a warrior but Godzilla still won the fight. I ain’t trying to push it on anyone unless it’s clear denial or a blame game.

      RenstenRensten2 päivää sitten
    • Nah, me personally I was always rooting for Kong, but I feel like Godzilla fans either felt bad for Kong, or became full of self ego

  • It used to be that the only unexplainable things in these movies was the monsters themselves. Now the humans almost everything they do is unrealistic and illogical and improbable. I would prefer a more serious version of these movies I don't need the comic relief

NATURE defeats OP/people=ALWAYS. also hong"kong"=most famous OP place, last showdown there; "king"=royal=evil=all govts=created gunpowder which led to OP (entire IR was GUN MANF. by BRITISH GOVT! "KING" GHIDORAH CONTROLS MECHAG by "APEX bring people back as 1st titan" company = OP. also MG is people controlled by asian = asia most populated place; DMT restores brain connections=man is connected to Ghidorah's massive psychic brain=DMT IS NEEDED TO FINALLY POWER MG = DMT is what creates innovation, monks were THE scientists of the past days, they were hired by govt to create "elixir of life" which ended up with gunpowder=which was actually "elixir of death". also since NTs can't handle DMT without a buffer, DMT SHORTS OUT MG psychic connection from man which results in his LOSS OF CONTROL). also: inside all Titan DNA homes in on Center of Planet Home their BIRTHPLACE = DMT inside all people/plants!

  • My problem with the film was that the humans were literally there to explain things to the audience. "What's that?? "Kong turned on the valuable energy core, one of the most important discoveries." Huh? You knew all that by watching from the flying craft? "What's going on now?" "I'll explain it to the audience, er, you..."

  • Could've been so much more awesome. I hate that Maddie character. She and Bernie and that fat kid just get into the most advanced company's facilities like it's a walk in the park . No security nothing. And spilling whiskey on a computer screws up the robot Godzilla. Wtf. And that Dr who wrote the hollow earth book can expertly fly that craft out of hollow earth and then has the know how to release electricity to kick start Kong. The kid and the Kong's connection was fabulous. Kong Vs Godzilla scenes were awesome.

If there was a Reviewer’s Cut, I’d cut out all the human scenes and just watch the 40 minutes of Godzilla fighting Kong. The story would make more sense than what I saw on the screen.

It was long but I found that nearly every minute was very good and most important is that every minute was entertaining! I think that I will assign this movie a solid 7.5/10! It’s true I didn’t care much about the other actors in the film and their side stories, but they were only given in very small doses, which is just how I like them! Enjoy this film friends!

It's one thing to enjoy the big monsters fighting because you are a fan and I can vibe with that, but to give any credit to the human stories or any other part of the film is just bonkers to me. Every part of this film besides the fights was just overwhelmingly bad writing and decision making. This review honestly sounds like you are shilling for the film.
