Last year on my 21st birthday I went to see Godzilla: King of the Monsters and I was somewhat impressed but mostly disappointed. The monster action was fantastic but once again this type of movie was ruined by the humans in the story.
Recently, while enjoying a free trial of HBO on Amazon Prime Video, I decided to revisit the film and was very surprised by the enjoyability of the movie. Well, at least the first half.
The first half of the movie features the film’s two best action sequences with the rise of King Ghidorah versus Godzilla in Antarctica and Roda versus King Ghidorah. It’s pretty mind-blowing the extent of detail and epicness of these incredible monsters going at it full throttle.
The second half is undoubtedly the lamer side of things. The humans become the main event and the unnecessary drama/not-that-emotional sacrifices weigh down what ultimately could’ve been a freaking juggernaut of a monster movie experience.
However, after my recent return to the film, I’m actually to see what happens in Godzilla vs. Kong, which should be quite the epic showdown. We’ll see.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day.
