Godzilla vs. Kong is an enjoyable, but flawed entry into Legendary Picture’s Monsterverse.

It is an exciting movie with impressive action, while also having characters who are written in a poor fashion. The movie is the fourth and potentially final movie of the cinematic universe Legendary has built.

The action is the main drawing point of the film, pitting two of cinema’s most famous monsters, Godzilla and King Kong, against each other. The movie also includes the well-known foe of Godzilla, Mechagodzilla, a mechanical version of the titan.

Throughout the movie, many disastrous fights take place involving the three monsters, with each fight containing realistic graphics that make the audience feel like the gigantic titans are real. 

Anyone simply wanting to see gargantuan monsters fight will not be disappointed. However, viewers looking for a well-thought-out and character-driven film should probably look elsewhere.

While there are many action sequences involving the title characters, a lot of the movie focuses on the human characters around them. 

The main characters portrayed by Rebecca Hall and Alexander Skarsgård root Kong on, while Millie Bobby Brown and Brian Tyree Henry are cast as characters supporting Godzilla. But, the characters deliver underwhelming performances that are integral to the plot. 

The characters are important pieces in seeing the monsters fight, comprising most of the story when the title titans aren’t on screen. With their importance, they should have more impactful arcs and performances.

Additionally, the main antagonist, played by Demián Bichir, serves the plot only by creating the monster Mechagodzilla.

One other positive aspect of the movie is the interesting and intuitive cinematography. The different shots in the movie show the monster fights in new and unusual ways.

Godzilla vs. Kong is an overall decent movie, with good action and fights, but lacking quality characters.
