Godzilla vs. Kong movie review - Aussieboyreviews


The effects and action between Godzilla and Kong are epic, but is all let down by the incredibly boring story. This creature action will likely not disappoint fans of these two characters, but is a pointless waste of time.


King Kong is transported from his containment zone after Godzilla creates mayhem and the two monsters battle. Humans need Kong’s help to reach Hollow Earth and find a way to subdue the king of the monsters.

Aussie boy's thoughts

Godzilla vs. Kong appears to promise full-on nonstop gigantic creature action. Unfortunately, it comes out as a dumb and ridiculously boring blockbuster with tiring battle flattened by constant talking, chatting and babbling. That’s right; there’s way too much dumb character story that by the time Godzilla and Kong bring the city to ruins, it’s just a big, boring and absolutely pointless mess. And by the time the film ends, the highest anticipations will be smashed down along with the garbage story and weak characters.

Honestly, don’t waste your time if you’re going to be cheering on for one specific monster, hoping he beats the other one. Without supplying you with spoilers, the film’s title + the film’s ending = leaving anyone unsatisfied, angry and disappointed, knowing that they just wasted 2 hours of their life. 

It’s the monsters along with the frail acting and weak plot that make Godzilla vs. Kong entirely boring and interest-lacking. The only fine element about this sci-fi/action movie is the detailed CGI monsters and their battles, which are still too extended and mainly slow. Godzilla vs Kong also could have had more effort put into the story and a lot less chit-chat.

Whilst this boring disappointment will be mega-awesome-action to Godzilla and Kong fans, there’s not enough action and too much story. The lack of entertaining and engaging plot is the only solid reason you’ll remember this messy, boring and pointless load of garbage.
