  • King of the monsters was great too. Just totally ignore the boring Humans and these movies deliver

  • All I can say after watching this is Danerys all is forgiven your death toll does not compare to the massacre in this movie.

  • This movie was really fun to watch, didn’t need a story line, the fights itself told a story. Amazing

  • This movie was perfectly executed. The human element was kept to the bare minimum to explain why the monsters were fighting. Bravo to the directors ! The movie gives exactly what the title promises and I loved it for that !

  • 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.

I hate when they try to make comedy by letting Kong scratch his butt....I stopped watching and went to my computer to watch "War of The Gargantuas!!! Now that is a monster movie. War of The Gargantuas is 50 years old and still is better today!!!! Nobody can beat Toho..PERIOD!!!!

  • It was a "stupid but really fun movie" .. VERY ENTERTAINING.

  • This is the one movie I have to respectfully disagree with you on. Its probably just me, but I thought this movie was an insult to my intelligence. 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.

  • This film was AWESOME! I loved every minute of this film. Was it long? Yes. Did I care? Yes! 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!

  • This movie was eh....ok I guess, however story wise didnt really make sense especially at the end when everyone is happy and giggly after literally trying to kill each other the whole movie lmao almost like zilla and kong where drunk the whole time and sobered up at the end and moved on with there lives, but the action was good probably better if I would be able to see it in theaters, I'd give it a solid C not good not bad nice action and that's about it

  • Dude, I lost all respect for you being a trusted movie reviewer. 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.

  • I can't tell if society as a whole has gotten really dumb, I mean even dumber than it seems to be or everyone is so afraid of being the odd duck out they just parrot talking points and don't form their own opinions. This movie was shit, total and utter shit. Some if not the worst written human characters in a film ever, have seen no one present any valid points otherwise, the only one they ever praise is the little girl, but they can't actually describe why they think she did a good job other than they find her cute or touching she's deaf, and her relationship with kong is so precious because of the previous two things. She's the most stand out character of the humans, but that doesn't take much when you see how poorly written and acted all the other parts are. The story/world building is so paper thin that it can't even follow it's own rules it sets because either the writers have a.d.d. or more likely they know most of the audience has it. Everyone says oh but the fights, the fights are what make it so great, how, they were literally the same as every other cgi fight fest in every other action film just insert what ever 3d model in the fight machine, it literally is no different than a child smashing their action figures together at this point. Which brings me to the other defense people use, the film is just fun or you do not know how to have fun if you don't like it. Which is another lame excuse because I can name plenty of dumb fun films I have watched that were not written like they were wrote by 10 year old's writing for 5 year olds. I mean I literally went into this film expecting dumb fun and got something even dumber than that with zero fun. I guess it wouldn't bother me so much, but when shit like this does well, it lowers the bar some more as everyone realizes they can produce literal garbage and find enough simpletons to throw money at them and beg for more, so why on earth would they even try to make a good film when it is literally a waste of their money and time, art doesn't pay the bills you know. It would be one thing if it were little kids praising this movie, but I'm starting to think there is something in the water when this many adults are frothing at the mouth for this film, that or you are all phony's and liers trying to impress one another for some strange reason aka shallow and afraid to have your own unique thoughts. Or maybe just most of you are studio interns/bots that are paid/programmed to praise it online, who knows. Cheers to the other non zombies out there who watched this film objectively and had the balls or good judgement to call it out for the crap that it is, we seem to be a dying breed. The positive side of it is it makes you appreciate your old favorite films that have stood the test of time, you can make all the shitty movies that you want, the beauty of a well written movie is you can watch it 1000 times and never tire of it, good luck watching some of todays movies more than once and not being outrageously bored after the hype trains die down. That is all films are anymore it feels like, hype trains for simpletons, ah well. Looking forward to how horrible they can keep making films and still find people screaming from the top of their lungs how they love it so much. Honestly, if someone were to pick dog shit off the ground and bite into it and express to you how delicious it was would you pick it up and starting eating it too, most likely not, however if you witnessed 10 people pick up the shit and proclaim the same thing would you try it then, I bet a lot of you would and then even if it still tasted like shit and you realized you had shit in your mouth you would smile and proclaim you loved it too because some how being one with the herd is worth more to you than your own dignity as you suck on that turd smiling trying to fit in.

  • Idk. It took 40 minutes before the first fight and an additional 40 minutes for the second fight, which led into the third fight. I went into this movie to see badass kaiju fights, and although the fights I got were spectacular, the slog of the human character plots made the experience pretty boring for me--so much so that I had already lost interest and checked out by the final boss battle. I'd recommend it just for the fights, but wouldn't pay to see it in the cinema. Watch it on HBO MAX if you have it and just fast forward to the fight scenes--trust me. If you don't have HBO MAX, get a free trial.

  • idk i thought this movie was awful, it’s sad to see that this is what cinema has become in 2021. I understand why people enjoy it but there’s just no character, no personality in this film. The whole story of the little girl being able to communicate with King Kong through sign language is completely unnecessary and over-dramatic also as i’m typing “the little girl communicating with King Kong through sign language” boggles my mind that this is actually incorporated into a movie that people enjoy unironically. And Mecha Godzilla.....yes....there is a Mecha Godzilla. I mean for fuck sake...

  • Thank you @Chris Stuckmann ! I’ve been searching for a decent well rounded movie reviewer ever since Peter Travers retired from Rolling Stone. 90% of critics are just sanctimonious wind bags. You really do, do a great job of critiquing movies based on the genre and that genre’s audience. I’m so sick of critics expecting every movie to have some profound social significance. Don’t get me wrong I like all genres and do like an impactful thought provoking movie sometimes, but sometimes I just want a good old stupid popcorn movie.

  • I was honestly disappointed, everything with Godzilla and king Kong I liked (spoilers) but the human characters were the worst they've ever been, Michael bay'ish. And I refuse to believe the " bad guy's" just left the door to the mecha Godzilla room whilst active just open for anyone to walk in to. I wasn't expecting alot in terms of human side characters but for the first time I think they genuinely ruined the film a bit. The film could have just been Kong finding the worm hole in skull island, fighting monsters whilst realising Godzilla is hunting him but its because he activate that axe....I don't know but it cuts a lot of the stupid shit out 🤣

  • After seeing this, I would’ve loved for Wingard to direct KOTM. The pacing, the focus on monsters, the visuals, the minimalistic approach to character development... all of it would’ve made KOTM a much much better flick, in my humble opinion. My updated Monsterverse rankings are; (4) KOTM, (3) Godzilla, (2) Skull Island, and (1) GvK. And admittedly, it pains me to put KOTM at 4, especially because of how awesome it was to see Mothra, Rodan and Monster Zero updated with modern CG. 🤷🏼‍♂️

The problem is upon watching the movie you already know Kongs lousy strength and limits and Godzilla seriously wasn't even trying the whole movie while Kong looked buggered.. This movie is nothing more than a teenager power film with its bright colours and stupid story with characters not needed to the film.. Godzilla King of the monsters and even Godzilla 2014 are still the king Monster fight titles bar none.. what a joke..

  • No bro. I disagree. I didnt like the movie. Not enough character build up. Not enough realism. They make kong look weak. He would never allow himself to be chained up like that. He took out 4 tyrannosaurus rexes. I'm pretty sure he can put up a hell of a lot better fight than that. And the whole dimension thing was just unrealistic. Skull Island was 100% believable. And the background people trying to figure out why everything is happening is completely unnecessary. I don't need explanations I just need to like the characters. The dude that built meca godzilla was the most annoying person I have ever seen. Fuckin hell. Why couldn't they just stick to something simple, tourists visiting skull Island and encountering kong, godzilla happens to be passing by and runs into the Island and an all out war commences with the skin crawlers getting involved as well.
