Big meaty kaijus slapping meat: the movie. This might be another one that's getting a friendly bounce due to most of this year operating at about a 6/10. At least this satisfies the baseline of what I want to see out of these movies. I feel though that they wasted how badass Godzilla COULD HAVE been in this story. Focusing on Kong is fine but I mean, Godzilla triple powers up just to, what, break up some rain clouds? Big let-down. At least it was cute watching him cuddle up inside the Colosseum.

Kong: lonely, resourceful, wily, emotive, principled, cantankerous, nurturing, can communicate with other primates including humans Godzilla: a big, fat, pissed-off lizard that screams a lot Sensible to make this a Kong movie based on the characterizations. And with GODZILLA MINUS ONE not far in memory, it's nice to balance the scales with this kind of dumb, low stakes smashy-smashy fun.

I can imagine some fans finding the film takes too long to get to G & K meeting, but not me. Wingard should make all these films. This threads the human characters - who are 1-dimensional but likeable w/ a mother/daughter problem that could go either way - w/ an extravaganza of giant monsters fighting in various settings & in various ways. Even Kong gets a compelling storyline, which highlights why I prefer him over Godzilla who really is just a giant lizard who does nothing but fight & sleep

Full disclosure, I went into Godzilla x Kong after having a pint of 7% cider. The film begins with Kong running from giant wolves; this scene ends with him ripping one in half before roaring to camera covered in green blood. Setting the film up as one of simple, dumb kaiju fights...with a few human characters who mainly provide comic relief and reaction shots. The film isn't technically interesting, but with pretty CGI, bright colours and vibrant lighting, it's a breezily-paced fun ride.

What you'd expect, nothing more, nothing less. I'm glad they had less sub-plots with multiple groups of people running around this time, but the build-up to the finale does somehow still manage to feel a bit slow and meandering, despite that.

Money thrown ferociously at a terrible script again. I don't like watching animals or monsters getting hurt because I'm sensitive as the dickens, but sleepy Godzilla is adorable.

Like much of the previous Monsterverse entries, GxK excels in the bigger than life set pieces and atmosphere. Watching a clusterfuck of monsters go at it is maybe the best it’s ever been, especially with how stupid & self aware some of the sequences are. At its core though, it once again struggles to appropriately adapt its human elements into a cohesive and interesting piece of this puzzle. It feels like a sports car stuck in the mud, and it’s a good question to wonder if it ever gets out.

Junky schlock, and even with the more evenly-paced monster brawls, I found myself drumming my fingers on more than a few occasions. Nonetheless, the joy of seeing Kong punch other titans with a bionic arm is substantial and singular to this film. I had a good time!

3D. I like seeing kaiju slamming against each other. I don't care for the hollow earth/secret tribal people setting, the Planet of the Apes alpha challenge, the mecha Kong arm, or any of the humans. At this point the only humans I want to see in the MonsterVerse series are the ones getting crushed and live commentary/exposition from reading cave walls. Fav scenes: Kong's initial fight in the fog with other apes; fight in Rio de Janiero redeemed the film, with damage to buildings feeling real.

Absolute balls to the wall CGI-fuckfest insanity from start to finish with an absurd plot and even more absurd testosterone-fueled rampaging that grabs you by the nuts and squeezes until they pop.......and i loved every second of it.

It is exactly what the the title and trailer suggest. There is great unintentional comedy in how ludicrous the human plot / characters are while the intended jokes fall flat. The action is good.

Passable, and the final battle is pretty great, but it takes like 90 minutes to get to the best stuff.

This is a bro cop monster movie that has good fights, keeps you entertained and then ends before you realize the plot was thin as usual. I hope they make Godzilla movies forever.

A two-hour video game cutscene. All of the action-spectacle setpieces in the Hollow Earth (which is most of them) demand direct comparison to the other recent Kong movies, always to this film's detriment. The Hollow Earth setting deprives the titular monsters of any sense of their gigantic scale; in this world, Kong is just another ape when not directly interacting with the barely-sketched human cast. Watch only if you want to see Godzilla suplex King Kong off of the Great Pyramid of Giza.

The special defects are really well done in this film. The script is not great as the monsters are far more interesting than the humans. There are some exciting scenes in this film. Overall I would recommend this action movie.

Not ground breaking, but it does a good job of properly using all the monsters and, surprisingly, the humans as well; they no longer feel like tacked on additions and actually seem important to the story.

This is coming out a few months after Minus One blew everybody away. Following up one of, if not the best, Godzilla movies ever, with probably the weakest in the American Monsterverse. Still not bad though. It was inevitable that it would disappoint after that. But it’s still fun, even if it isn’t as fun as a lot of its predecessors.

The final battle came, and I was bored to tears. So much so that I didn't care about anything that was happening and just wanted to get out of the theatre and go home. For much of the film, the kaiju weren't characters, just soulless CGI.

Really suffers next to Godzilla Minus One. It's fine for some big CGI things smacking each other, beyond that, ehh

Cuts were too quick, monsters moved too fast, compositing team went overkill with chromatic aberration, the water simulation looked mid, and the writing was disappointing, even for a Godzilla flick. Granted, there were some cool moments and the comedic relief from the podcaster was pretty gunny, but once the third act hit he became an exposition machine. Like all Godzilla films, the human storyline was trash, but this was more of a Kong film. The fights were pretty cool at least. Overall - mid.

Too fictitious, but at least the final battle saved this movie.
