The lead character of this film is mainly Kong. Sure there are humans, but who cares about them when you have the two most famous monsters. The biggest attraction here is to see these monsters fight each other. However, Kong gets more screentime as we get to see a journey of where the humans are taking him.
Immediately, the film starts off where Kong is already captured. For some reason, him being captured made him feel weak compared to Godzilla. Well, we all know he’s strong, especially his punches, but I don’t see them capture Godzilla. They even transported Kong on a boat and helicopters. I have to say, one scene on the boat gave me goosebumps when he’s interacting with a little girl. I did not see that coming and was pleasantly surprised.
A big part of this film feels like a side quest. They’re going to the real home of Kong, and even if it feels like a filler, I actually was entertained by it. I just went along with it, and yeah, sometimes it gets a bit ridiculous. But then again. So are these two insane monsters, as they’re not real.
If you ask me which one of these two biggies I prefer, I would say Godzilla. That’s actually a hard choice as I do love apes for some kind of reason, but I also like dinosaurs. I know Godzilla isn’t a dino, but he sure looks like one but way cooler.
For some reason, Godzilla is attacking human bases. We all know that Godzilla doesn’t attack unless he feels danger. So now, we’re wondering why he is attacking. Is there another threat involved? Is it due to Kong? I can’t tell you too much about it. Otherwise, I will spoil you the movie.
Millie Bobby Brown is back but older, and she was in the latest Godzilla movie. However, in that film, the focus was more on her father, who is also present. Now, we follow her and a companion and some podcast guy. Even if I don’t really like the humans in this film, they actually found a way to use them better than their previous films. I feel like they add something to the story, which I prefer. However, at the end of the day, we just want to see the huge fight.
Godzilla vs. Kong
What everybody really cares about is seeing the huge battle between Godzilla and King Kong. I can already tell you that they fight twice, which was to be expected. I’m glad they made Kong way bigger for this one. Otherwise, he wouldn’t stand a chance. The confrontations are also the best parts of the movie, which shouldn’t surprise anyone.
Many building gets destroyed, but that just adds to the awesome factor. Could the filmmakers have chosen a safe place where no humans are? Probably, but that wouldn’t have been so incredible to watch. Let’s be honest. We’re all a bit sadistic about movies and want to see some buildings get wrecked.
The script does resemble the one of Batman v. Superman. Well, I couldn’t stop thinking about it during the film. It just had the same flow, except that this film was shorter. However, I was not too fond of the introduction of Doomsday in Batman v. Superman. In Godzilla vs. Kong, you actually get a cool surprise.
As far as giant monster movies go, “Godzilla vs. Kong” does its best to entertain us with plenty of action and great special effects. And we don’t care about the rest.
