Godzilla: King of the Monsters is the sequel to Godzilla (2014) directed by Michael Dougherty. It's satisfying enough to be considered a Godzilla movie but doesn't live up to its predecessor.

What made Godzilla (2014) an above average Hollywood blockbuster is the interesting dialogue and interactions between the characters which King of the Monsters fails to accomplish. For example, the scientists and the military are given comedic traits often resulting in painfully unfunny and out of place humour. Protagonist characters (the Russel family) are given bare minimum characterization which is a blockbuster standard by now. As a matter of fact, not a single character or character interaction is interesting and not a single joke lands which are the films biggest sins.

To give credit where credit is due the King of the Monster nails the VFX and the over the top battles make up for most of the poor writing. To be honest I can't entirely blame the writers for this. Ever since the perfection of CGI Hollywood started thinking that good VFX make up for bad writing, which obviously isn't true. But even with a bad screenplay the actors do a good enough job to be entertaining when they need to be.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters is ultimately a fun movie with great visual and sound effects, but with mostly forgettable characters.

Final Grade: 6/10

Great and Amazing battles/fights among giant monsters, epic and spectacular ones, what everybody was waiting for, if you want to enjoy good monsters and CGI this is you movie, go watch it on the best screen 8.5/10... But the plot is weak, people are stupid and make meaningless decisions. People's behavior is absurd, with a lot of boring drama that nobody cares, in addition the actors who are supposed to be the main ones have no time on screen. A Total disappointment.

Ever since the perfection of CGI, Hollywood has come to the conclusion that if the special effects are good, then then movie is good. Thus, my 5 star rating. Half of the movie involved the monster battles and that gets 10 stars. The half of the movie where there is no monster presence gets 0. That averages out to a 5. Perhaps some day Hollywood will re-discover the lost art of screen writing and combine it with CGI to create a truly fantastic movie. But don't look for it to change soon. A lot of people came out of the theater visually dazzled by the special effects knowing that the story was awful but still thought it was a great movie. So they will continue make a lot of money creating these kind of movies and save on time & expense by not having to pay top dollar for a writer.

The whole dramatic family story wasn't able to catch me. It isn't annoying, but allways kind of irrelevant. Every scene including monsters on the other hand is stuning. In General the monster design, the CGI, the fights and the whole cinematography aswell are beyond beautiful. I recommand the movie because of those monster scenes. Everything what happens aroud that is more like a 3/10

Crazy review title right? Well you might agree after watching this movie.

You'll probably hear a lot of opinions from people who aren't homegrown Godzilla fans - and they will have their own thoughts on this. I, on the other hand, am a big fan of the monster going years back. Finding a Godzilla movie in the TV guide, or a DVD for one of the Toho movies to rent was like winning the lottery when my brother and I were young.

Here are my thoughts plainly stated: Yes, this is a better Godzilla film than the 2014 movie. There are *aspects* of the latter that some might say make it superior, but that would only make it a better movie in general - as a *Godzilla movie* this new one is quite a bit better.

Don't listen to the people on RottenTomatoes talking about how "the special effects are overly relied on and can't make up for the bad characters and plot." No. Those CG monsters are the best part, and they almost singlehandedly save this movie. The solution is not to focus less on special effects and develop the characters better. The solution is to have every human character stepped on in the second act and have the last 45 min center the story solely on the monsters - which I guess would mostly be fighting.

The problem is this does not happen. Every moment you see the monsters battle, you enter a brief moment of bliss before you are ripped away to deal with people you don't care about doing things you hope they fail at. The first "clash" occurs in Antarctica, and that scene was actually quite good despite the focus on the humans. You're just now being exposed to these titans duking it out, so having people there witnessing the madness and trying to escape help play into how incredible this event truly is.

By the 3rd act, however, this tolerance has dried up. Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't a movie titled "Godzilla" imply that he is the main character? Because he doesn't feel like one. Without a doubt, THE biggest problem that Godzilla (2014) and this film have is they place waaayyyy too much value on human beings. Everyone in the audience is waiting for them to shut up and go away, but the movie has its head up its ass and thinks what they're doing is somehow important and worth focusing on. It would be like two warriors facing off, and having most of the climax focusing on ants running around on the ground trying to save each other.

The only "characters" here that need development are the Kaijus. Have them be your stars. Have them be the focus. It doesn't just have to be mindless action like how snobby people will pretend that's all we want to see. Go ahead and tell a story, but NOT with people. They are not the reason we're watching this, and we don't care about them.

One exception to what I said in the previous paragraph: Ken Watanabe His big character moment was incredible. If you must have human beings involved, do them like this. He was amazing.

Next Movie they do they need to let the monsters fight more rather than letting us listen or watch the people story. I like Godzilla, but this movie was pretty bad only Bec of the lack of screen time for the monsters fighting. I want to see a Godzilla movie with humans not humans with Godzilla. The main character, which is in the damn title, Godzilla has barely any screen time. I don't know why they keep doing this, they have been focusing to much on the humans since the 60s. Someone please change this aspect of all Godzilla movies.

I wanted to see cool monsters. A few hours of mindless fun. A thin plot was part of the deal, surely that wouldn't be a problem?

Hah. This movie delivers cool monsters in spades, but the plot and the pacing are so monumentally, ridiculously off that even the most avid monster fan will feel something snap. Mild amusement will give way to boredom, and then to disbelief and mockery. The amazing visuals will occasionally and very briefly awaken the child inside, but then another line of horrendous dialogue will kill that spark of joy and you'll forget it was ever there. And it will do this over and over for what feels like an eternity.

This movie is without exaggeration one of the worst things I've seen in theaters this decade. Just go watch Cloverfield again, or Monsters, or even Pacific Rim.

Stay away. You have been warned.

The movie had terrible writing with characters having ridiculous motivations to do certain things. There was a continuous shower of blinding lights, blurred and dark action scenes and shaky cam which was a pain to the eyes.

This is one of the most beautiful movie to watch today. The cinematography and graphics are out of the world. But the story sucks due to heavy involvement of humans in the story of monsters. It's funny how much role a 5 foot girl plays in a movie of these reckless monsters.

This is made for idiots and the Chinese market. The is the worst of what movies have become. No story and horrible acting.

Right from being a child and watching the Hana Barbera cartoons and stomping round the house pretending to be Godzilla, to being allowed to stay up till the early hours of the morning as a treat by my Dad to watch the Togo films on channel 4 here here in the UK I have loved Godzilla. How I wish he was still here today to have watched this glorious film with me.

Baffled by many of the reviews saying to much Kaiju action or poor director etc.

This film was clearly made by a dedicated and passionate Godzilla fan. The sheer amount of Easter eggs and fan service which had me grinning is incredible, (yet knowledgeable Godzilla fans on RT seem to not have noticed any of this) and talk about the likes of fire breathing dragons ><!

Anyway the film is awesome. One of my favourite films of all time. Definitely my favourite Godzilla film.

The effects are incredible.

The music is awesome. You will be grinning from ear to ear at certain points.

I actually like the human cast. I liked 2014 Godzilla but did not like the main cast Aaron Tailor Johnson. Did not have those issues here. They play imo a good supporting cast to the main cast you care about - The Titans :)!

I'm super excited to see what happens next in the monsterverse.

Make sure you stay till the VERY end of the credits scene or for a final scene hinting at wha could be to come ;)!

I would also encourage you to write a review also should you watch and enjoy the film. Let's not let the likes of Rotten Tomatoes deter people from seeing a very fun and entertaining Godzilla movie :)!

I confess...I´ve tried hard to understand the movie argument, the soul of it... Once I´m from the western part of the world and we grew up reading and watching movies about a guy from another planet that defies the physics flying without any kind of mechanical source, changing directions without "support". Another guy was bitten by a spider and ...well, everybody knows what happens and so on...But to understand "Godzilla" and his movie is beyond any kind of imagination...Can you imagine military officers following the orders of some scientists or his friends blindly? A world catastrophe without an "American President in charge" of the operation? Or a family drama overtaking a global disaster? Where did they decide to land a military aircraft in the middle of a "Monsters Fight" to search for their daughter instead of the world? Or, even a Japanese scientist taking over an American submarine to save the world? And a "bunch" of monsters supposedly with good and bad intentions about us? Really??
