Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Godzilla 2 is cool but not king of the monsters.

GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS delivers spectacular kaiju action and mayhem, seemingly as an apology for the slow-burn reveal of the 2014 film. The ensemble cast seems aware that their gigantic CGI costars are the true draw of the film but they nevertheless take the proceedings as serious as need be. Ken Watanabe and Vera Farmiga especially have more gravitas than expected. The main plot where the monster agency Monarch and Godzilla race to thwart the awakening of other monstrous creatures is surprisingly gripping; there is a weird environmentalist angle that does sound nice but is negated by the villains. Yeah there's still human villains in this for some reason despite there already being a 500 ft three headed dragon. The cliffhanger ending is a treat for franchise fans. But it also leaves too many subplots unresolved. The film's decision to go big pays off for one grand helluva finale but the best installment in the Monster-Verse series remains KONG: SKULL ISLAND.
