In the ultimate battle to become the alpha of the Titans, Godzilla vs Kong brings amazing cinematography to an otherwise, basic story.
In the beginning, you get the feeling that Kong is the underdog. Godzilla vs Kong picks up where the last two movies in the Warner Brothers revival (Godzilla: King of the Monsters and Kong: Skull Island) ended. Godzilla left humans alone, and Kong is contained on the island. However, he’s bored.
Directed by Adam Wingard, the movie brings us one of the best monster actions scenes in the last decade if not more. However, I have to say that earlier in the movie, some Kong water scenes felt unfinished.
Having said that, the water fight scene looked exquisite: Flipping the boat, being dragged down the ocean, and going back up! Kong was the boss!
Moving on, the whole middle earth thing made no sense, but I must admit that it looked great. However, Wingard saved the best for last. It’s Godzilla vs. Kong with Hong Kong as their fighting ring, and they came to slay. I had to rewind and rewatch it a couple of times because there was too much wonderful things happening. Honk Kong skyline wonderfully lit, Godzilla getting pissed, Kong’s…weapon (#NoSpoilers) and the whole movie coloring shined in that scene. Hats to the team.
Should you watch it?
Setting aside the fact that some plot lines didn’t make any sense for the bigger picture, this is one of the movies that surprised me, and I really enjoyed watching. The cinematography is amazing, and you get to see both monsters, for once, in all their glory.
