An In Depth Analysis Godzilla vs Kong's Performance.1,391 Views5 RepliesAdd A Reply
With Godzilla vs Kong's international theatrical release coming to a close, it's time to analyze if the film was a true success or not.
Here is a video from DangerVille that summarizes the box office and critical performance of Godzilla vs Kong:
(Note: There is a slight error, as he states that the film has a 76% on Rotten Tomatoes while it is currently at 75%. It's not a huge error, but I thought it was worth mentioning)
To me, the reason why it did good is because the MonsterVerse has the least conflict compared to the MCU, DC, etc.
In his new interpretation Kong traditionally closer to the human race has absolutely no appeal or charisma. He is such a perpetually muttering disgruntled toxic. Therefore the outcome of his battle with the rampaging Japanese foot-and-mouth disease becomes as uninteresting as possible. It's like watching a fight between drunks outside a convenience store from the sidelines. It's an epic movie attraction crawling a bit into Star Wars territory. The plot is only needed to strut the formidable crashing cyberpunk Hong Kong animation. At some point a third force intervenes in the conflict. Who with pathos proclaims his alphasamtsova. This does not cancel out the fact that watching such an abusive troika albeit pleasantly filmed in places in 2021 is simply boring. I watched it on 123movie in 3D effects but even those effects didn't really fix the situation. And I was left with only negative emotions after the movie.
He is such a perpetually muttering disgruntled toxic. Could you elaborate on this, I didn’t get this vibe at all.
I'm curious about that as well. As far as my laundry list of issues with this movie goes, Kong's characterization is not one of them. If anything I felt it was quite easy to be sympathetic toward Kong since he was taken from his home, drugged, put in dangerous waters against a superior threat, dropped into the freezing cold, nearly suffocated by a flying cobra, had his throne room he had just discovered blown to hell and was beaten within an inch of his life by Godzilla only to have a giant "defibrillator" blow up against his chest for a rude awakening with Mecha-Beats-Me-Within-An-Inch-Of-My-Life. All of which could've been avoided had he not been taken from his island by the so-called "Kong whisperer" who was allegedly looking out for his best interests.
The movie could've easily been titled, Kong Has a Really Bad Day.
this article but simplefied for idiots (like me):
IT did good.
