As a child, one of the greatest things look forward to whenever TNT had their classic tv series called “Monstervision” and it would show various classic monster films and it included a movie marathon of the classic Godzilla films called “Godzilla Bash” since then, I was a Godzilla fan (Right up to the 1998 Godzilla film with Matthew Broderick, neat merchandise, but not so great film.) Now we’re moving forward into time, with that in 2014 with the Godzilla film that revitalized the franchise back into the Behemoth it was meant to be; Bringing in 529 million dollars for box office success, bringing back the Kaiju Genre in a huge way! Now it’s time for our review.

The King is Dead, Long Live the new King; King Ghidorah
Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Aside from the family drama and the typical “I’m doing this for our son!” The recycled ploy of trying to do the right thing, the Kaiju were done wonderfully aside from the presentation of how ‘Titans’ reproduce (We’re fully aware of Rule 34 on the internet of Godzilla!) no thanks to Sam Middleditch’s character nervously presenting it off-screen. Charles Dance’s Character Alan Jonah had the presence of an 80s action villain and in that sense, a bad guy who talks big acts macho and isn’t heard of ever again. The Kaiju battles were done beautifully, especially the battle between Godzilla and King Ghidorah was a mix between the two kaiju being fierce, ferocious, and intimidating. The Easter eggs were everywhere in this film, especially the references to King Kong both the classic film and the newly released film in 2017 Kong: Skull Island, one of the subtle nods when presenting Mothra in this new film were the twins, this played a role in the Godzilla mythology and it was well done.

Final Grade: 6.8 out of 10, A movie worth witnessing Kajiu battles and Nostalgia but the acting was what brought the film down tremendously.
