Why watch this film?
Since their debut in the cinema in 1933 and 1954, respectively, Godzilla and King Kong have been two of the most popular movie monsters in history (who actually faced off in the original Japanese film 'King Kong vs. Godzilla' in 1962). Following the American reinterpretations of the great Kaiju in 'Godzilla' (2014) and 'Godzilla II: King of the Monsters', 'Godzilla vs. Kong' is the culmination of the promise of the so-called "MonsterVerse", the Warner Bros. and Legendary monster franchise that also includes 'Kong: Skull Island'. And like the aforementioned installments, this movie has the same pros and cons: truly spectacular titanic duels, at the cost of characters so poorly developed they almost seem like parodies, performed by a highly wasted cast that includes Alexander Skarsgård ('Big Little Lies'), Millie Bobby Brown ('Enola Holmes'), Rebecca Hall ('Christine'), Kyle Chandler ('Carol'), Julian Dennison ('Deadpool 2') and Mexicans Eiza González ('I Care') and Demián Bichir ('The Hateful Eight').
The epic next chapter in the cinematic Monsterverse pits two of the greatest icons in motion picture history against one another - the fearsome Godzilla and the mighty Kong - with humanity caught in the balance.
