Godzilla vs. Kong Review


Godzilla vs. Kong was released to theaters and HBO Max on March 31, 2021. Every movie has to have good guys and bad guys, but you’ll never know what’s coming next with each character until you see it for yourself.

Godzilla vs. Kong was released to theaters and began streaming to HBO Max on March 31, 2021, starring Alexander Skarsgård, Millie Bobby Brown and Rebecca Hall. This film is thought to have the biggest box office of any movie in a full year. This science fiction, action-packed thriller movie entails the fight between two of the greatest icons in motion picture history: the mighty Kong and the fearsome Godzilla. However, humans are caught directly in between the anger from the two icons and the audience is on the edge of their seats waiting to see what must be done to save civilization. 

The movie takes an unexpected turn when we are introduced to a brand new being that you would never expect. I don’t want to give too much away so that you can see it for yourself, but just know that you’ll never guess until you see it. All the different aspects of the film makes the viewing experience even better because there are uphill battles, downfalls, love, connection, joy and heartache throughout each scene. Along with the main plot of the storyline, the cast is also trying to communicate with Kong to figure out where his true home is, and where he is going to be happy and safe from danger.

I would definitely recommend going to see this movie in theaters or streaming it on HBO Max, as I would rate it a five out of five stars. In my opinion, there was never too much focus on any one titan or any one actor in the film. The director, Adam Wingard, does an amazing job of making sure the audience is seeing different groups of people every so often and not being so caught up with only one character. The audience is able to see what different characters are doing to try to stop the catastrophe taking place and even learning so much more about Godzilla and Kong themselves.
