Monsters great, people and drama boring

Great and Amazing battles/fights among giant monsters, epic and spectacular ones, what everybody was waiting for, if you want to enjoy good monsters and CGI this is you movie, go watch it on the best screen 8.5/10... But the plot is weak, people are stupid and make meaningless decisions. People's behavior is absurd, with a lot of boring drama that nobody cares, in addition the actors who are supposed to be the main ones have no time on screen. A Total disappointment.

All hail the King... of bad writing

Godzilla: King of the Monsters is the sequel to Godzilla (2014) directed by Michael Dougherty. It's satisfying enough to be considered a Godzilla movie but doesn't live up to its predecessor.

What made Godzilla (2014) an above-average Hollywood blockbuster is the interesting dialogue and interactions between the characters which King of the Monsters fails to accomplish. For example, the scientists and the military are given comedic traits often resulting in painfully unfunny and out of place humour. Protagonist characters (the Russel family) are given bare minimum characterization which is a blockbuster standard by now. As a matter of fact, not a single character or character interaction is interesting and not a single joke lands which are the films biggest sins.

To give credit where credit is due to the King of the Monster nails the VFX and the over the top battles make up for most of the poor writing. To be honest I can't entirely blame the writers for this. Ever since the perfection of CGI Hollywood started thinking that good VFX make up for bad writing, which obviously isn't true. But even with a bad screenplay, the actors do a good enough job to be entertaining when they need to be.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters is ultimately a fun movie with great visual and sound effects, but with mostly forgettable characters.

Final Grade: 6/10

Monsters awesome, rest meh

The whole dramatic family story wasn't able to catch me. It isn't annoying, but allways kind of irrelevant. Every scene including monsters on the other hand is stuning. In General the monster design, the CGI, the fights and the whole cinematography aswell are beyond beautiful. I recommand the movie because of those monster scenes. Everything what happens around that is more like a 3/10
