GvK does not disappoint.917 Views1 RepliesAdd A Reply
"On the other hand, if you're also expecting a halfway-intelligent script or a set of human characters who act like thinking beings with discernible motivations beyond "be in X spot so Y plot event can occur," you'll be massively disappointed."
Saw this in a review. Picking on a movie which has a poster of a giant ape fighting a giant lizard, over its human characters means you are not interested in engaging with the movie in its own language. The movie has promised a fight between these two monsters and nothing else. Nobody would see the poster, the trailer and then go to the movie expecting to get some deep characterization. More prominent critics have given this movie a good score or a must watch because of the spectacle. So, this review is not smart as its writer clearly thinks it is. It is just an annoying piece of writing.
The fights between these two are explosively creative and undeniably impressive--it's an absolute joy to watch Godzilla and King Kong exchange blows like seasoned combatants, using battleships as stepping stones and flattening entire cities around them. The undeniable, masterful craft that goes into making these gargantuan monsters look cool and awe-inspiring as they try to tear each other apart is almost unfathomable.
Good to see they are finally giving us what we asked for in a monster movie...the monsters!
No spoilers...will see it later on HBO Max.
