Movie Review: Godzilla King of the Monsters

As a fan of the old Godzilla movies, I was cautiously excited about the monster being modernized for today’s audiences.

This new incarnation improves upon its 2014 predecessor (I liked that one, but I was in the minority). King of the Monsters brings more monster mayhem, including Mothra. She’s amazing, by the way, and that alone is worth the ticket price. It’s a darkly shot, but if works to your advantage because the monsters all light up in some way (Mothra!).

There is, of course, family drama by way of divorced and estranged parents played convincingly by Kyle Chandler and Vera Farmiga. This installment also brings back Ken Watanabe and Sally Hawkins (much to my pleasure). They all are on the lookout for Vera and her daughter, Millie Bobbie Brown, who have been captured by Charles Dance and is British accent. There is infighting about who the real bad guys are; humans, other humans, or the monsters. Then they all stand in awe as chaos begins.

If you liked Kong Skull Island and the 2014 Godzilla, you’ll like this one. If you’re missing Game of Thrones, you’ll be happy to know that there’s a three headed dragon as the villain.
