Ryan Javate – Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) -Of all the legendary movie mash-ups including “Freddy vs. Jason,” “Alien vs. Predator,” and “Batman vs. Superman,” none is as legendary as Legendary Picture’s 2021 “Godzilla vs. Kong.”
Unlike the earlier versions of this film, this Godzilla and King Kong movie improved and delivered the mind-blowing action promised in the title. However, it also comes with very underdeveloped human characters and confusing plotlines.
In the movie, five years have passed since the events of “Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019)”and the world has been living peacefully until Godzilla attacks a cybernetics facility in Pensacola.
Madison Russell (Millie Bobby Brown) suspects that something is provoking the King of the Monsters and goes out with her friend Josh (Julian Dennison) to find Bernie (Brian Tyree Henry) to figure out what is wrong.
Meanwhile, Ilene Andrews (Rebecca Hall) and Dr. Nathaniel Lind (Alexander Skarsgard) are trying to help Kong find a new home after Skull Island is destroyed. This is where Kong clashes with Godzilla for the first time.
This film’s cinematography is beautiful, containing vibrant colors in tropical environments and giving a cold, mechanical feeling in more industrial settings.
The effects in this film are also spectacular, Kong and Godzilla have never looked or sounded better on the big screen.
Even the fights themselves have this big, grandiose feeling making the film very much enjoyable for adrenaline junkies.
Unfortunately, most of the characters received a simple introduction and almost no development. Characters such as Henry and Skarsgard seem to only be there to be comic relief in-between heavy action pieces.
Although the film’s more human side is awful, the in-movie universe it enhances makes this movie worthwhile.
Viewers get to see a new, unexplored part of Legendary’s “MonsterVerse” that comes with cool new creatures and sights that will blow your mind.
Overall,“Godzilla vs. Kong”has some of the finest giant movie monster action you will ever see on screen.
