Short version: you know who won’t like this film? That’s right: Communists.
Slightly longer version: do you want to see kaiju fighting other kaiju, kaiju fighting the US military, and the US military and kaiju teaming up to fight other kaiju? You do? Go see Godzilla: King of the Monsters. You don’t? …Well, the above provocative statement aside, you’re probably not a Communist. I will be honest: this movie is not exactly Arrival*.
But it is so totally not trying to be, either. It knows what you want: CGI monsters, rubber physics, and famous locations being fought over. And it gives it to you. It’s gonna give you more of it next year when Godzilla ‘fights’ Kong, too**. Until then: movies like this are why weekend matinees exist, folks. Perfect early afternoon fare.
*Wonderful movie. Perfect science fiction. Even made money. So why those f*ckers in Hollywood keep refusing to make more just like it is beyond me completely.
**Come on. We all know that they’re going to team up. It is… inevitable.
