Godzilla vs. King Kong

Rating (2.5 out of 5)

Summary: A rather blah monster movie that is good to turn on when you don’t have time to pay 100% attention. For example, with me, after a full day at work, the dog wants to play. Turn this on, and you can follow the plot and play with the dog.

Please don’t sit down and expect the story to blow your mind or take monster movies to the next level. This is a basic monster movie. No more and no less.

Don’t think when watching this movie. It will just ruin it. Madison (Millie Bobby Brown) and her sidekick (Julian Dennison) get from the USA to Hong Kong to help Godzilla in a flash. Don’t think about how the little deaf girl teaches King Kong sign language. Don’t think about why the US government hasn’t taken possession of the monsters or the company (Monarch) that investigates them. Don’t think about who designed King Kong’s ax. Just roll with it.

The movie has its flaws, but if you roll with them, “Godzilla vs King Kong” is watchable.

Plot: King Kong needs to find a new home, and at the same time, Walter Simmons (Demián Bichir) is trying to find a new power source. They both need to find the hollow earth, which is Kong’s home. As they travel there, Godzilla begins random attacks, or are they random. Godzilla and King Kong soon find out they face a new deadly enemy.
