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.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters
‘Godzilla II: King of the Monsters’ promises to build on the great work already laid out for this franchise, mixing popcorn fun and thrilling craft, but instead it relinquishes all of that to be a predictably dull and plodding bore. It doesn’t even manage to be a fun, brainless monster movie, assuming that a satisfying monster battle is all about being big and loud and doing nothing else. We waited five years for the follow-up to ‘Godzilla’, which only makes this new film even more of a disappointment, and doesn't excuse the badly-written screenplay or the poorly-executed visual effects. With Dougherty handing the reigns over to horror director Adam Wingard for 2020’s ‘Godzilla vs Kong’, here’s hoping the Monsterverse finds its feet again.

Godzilla, The GOAT
Let's keep it 100, there is ZERO doubt, or question on this, none. Godzilla is the greatest big screen Kaiju ever. You can't keep Gojira down, no matter what. Anything put in the big guys way has been put in check. He's been doin it and doin it well since 1954 and has 35 films under his belt. Who can get with that?
Now, with that out of the way, is Godzilla: King of the Monsters a perfect movie? Far from it, but seeing the sheer annhilation of multiple Kaiju on the big screen wreaking havoc on the world and each other was enough for me to squeal like an eight year old. Go see what I'm talking about, today, in IMAX!
