One word review: Spectacle!
Did you know?
There is a popular belief that the Earth is hollow beneath the surface and another world is lying just under it.
Godzilla vs. Kong is the next installment in the Godzilla film series. Having watched only Kong: Skull Island in the Godzilla series, I was delighted to find out that this latest film was raking in raving reviews and set out to watch this movie. Well, I was not disappointed!
Who bows to who? Kong bows to no one.
The key to commercial movies especially supernatural films is to weave a strong story line or in-depth character development. Godzilla vs. Kong has got that formulae right and has a very strong story line with an amusing subplot. We are introduced to new concepts with succinct expositions and taken on a journey that makes us forget about the rival battle the title promises. This captivating story and the journey it produces, gives total sense of satisfaction to viewers.
There can’t be two alpha titans.
The action sequences are striking, spectacular and astonishing. The only absurd element that I discerned was that the Godzilla was extremely fat and looked odd at certain angles. May be, the design could have been better. The rival battle that the film title promises not only meets our expectations but also exceeds our imaginations. Interestingly, there was a few ludicrous scenes which provoked laughter in such a way to feel the unconvincing inanity the scene contained. But apart from these few hiccups the movie was a pleasant and spectacular watch.
The myths are real. There was a war. And they’re the last ones standing.
With an intriguing story line, impeccable visual effects and few mildly humorous scenes, Godzilla vs. Kong is the best summer retreat available in theaters now for kids, families and friends this year. So, don't miss it!
