Godzilla King of the Monsters Review

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.

Mothra vs Rodan

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.

Godzilla Video Game 12-Inch Head to Tail Action Figure based on his appearance in the 1988 Godzilla: King of Monsters (also known as Godzilla: Monster of Monsters) video game! Godzilla stands over 6-inches tall and measures nearly 12-inches long, with over 30 points of articulation (including bendable tail) and dorsal plates to match his in-game silhouette.
