Godzilla vs Kong Film Review
To be fair, the story has nothing much to write about. Because the main focus has always been on the 2 titular Monsters that will fight for the throne of their species. Thus, the film spends far more time on the action scenes of these two, rather than on the human characters. And sure enough, this film does not contain any sort of common sense in regards to the technology used or the motives behind the actions of the evil guys or good guys.
In a sense, everything that they did is just to progress the story along, either in a natural or very forceful way. Thus if you come to watch this film for some deep story that makes sense, then this is not the film for you. But if you have come to watch two famous monsters fight it out, then hell yeah THIS is what you come for!
The pacing is surprisingly great with some slow moments in the beginning that slowly begins to escalate to the ultimate climax. It draws you in and brings you the epic fighting scenes that you so clamour for.
As for CGI, they have really spent a great bucks on them, with everything done nicely, and more precisely, to the taste of fans that will ensure you see Godzilla and Kong at their utmost grandness. Even the fights as well as some choreography are better than what I expected. Sure, they won’t win any award, but they do their parts well enough that ensure you will be amazed at the epic-ness.
I will say that you can safely ignore most of the human characters, except for the girl that can speak with Kong, because you can replace them with almost anyone and it will still work. That’s especially so with the bad guys, as they are rather, no, they are very cliché. To the point that these are the antagonists with a motivation that’s comparable to any cartoon series you can find. And that’s probably because Godzilla and Kong come from older cartoons, and thus the Director perhaps saw it fit to use the same formula for this movie. And they are all mostly unmemorable.
As for Godzilla and Kong, there’s nothing more to say but that they are badasses here. And you will witness them bring out their A-Game to this fight, and that’s all there is to it. This film earns big brownie points just for the appearance of these two, and they are portrayed in ways that deserved their reputations.
The soundtrack used are those from Epic Music types you have probably heard from YouTube. And in this regard, it does not disappoint me one bit. The whole soundtrack will enhance the mood and atmosphere to the deserved levels. And then you just need to enjoy the film as it rides along!
