Storyline Heading
The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species-thought to be mere myths-rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity's very existence hanging in the balance.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Adventure Fantasy - This is a big, effects-heavy action film starring the famous monster and various others. Only Ken Watanabe, Sally Hawkins, and David Strathairn return from the 2014 film to which this is a sequel, with Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown, and Kyle Chandler being the leads this time around. Language and constant monster violence make the film too intense for young kids though most parents would find this to be safe enough for pre-teens and up.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average ...there are too many gaps in the cross-generational/cross-gender appeal for the movie to emerge as one of the 2019 summer movie season's big winners. Some will argue this is all set-up for next year's Kong/Godzilla rematch. After watching King of the Monsters, however, I sadly find myself less excited about that outing.

USA Today Full Review
Average ...while it delivers on the sheer brutal beauty of a beast-on-beast tussle, it's a colossal misstep in several ways, from ludicrous dialogue to thin characters to ridiculous plot turns. Godzilla demands a certain level of absurdity to be fun, but even this is a stretch.

NY Post Full Review
Average ...there is endless exposition here, when all we want are monster fights. While we get a few very cool monster fights, there are simply not enough monster fights. Next time, please, more monster fights.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Above Average The film's inability to decide whether Godzilla is a guardian angel or an uncaring, almost deist supreme being zaps the franchise of its captivating, humbling depiction of humans being insignificant compared to the powerful might of Earth's self-persevering whims.
