Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Kyle Anderson @ Nerdist
  • Steve Biodrowski @ Hollywood Gothique
    • Excerpt: Lacks the dramatic resonance of 1954’s Gojira but offers king-sized entertainment for those willing to go along for the ride.
  • Caio Bogoni @ Cine Grandiose [Portuguese]
    • Excerpt: Perhaps the movie that will please most of the fans with plenty of giant monster action and much more than 10 minutes of Godzilla himself.
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: The flaws get in the way of a potentially great story, but in terms of delivering kaiju action, it’s a rousing success.
  • Vadim Grigoriev @ kinoblog.com [Ukrainian]
  • Roderick Heath @ This Island Rod
    • Excerpt: It would be easy to say that, as Honda once said of his monsters, that Godzilla, King of the Monsters is too big and too much for its own good. But it’s also easy to forgive in a movie so determined to deliver your money’s worth, and which so gleefully and boldly enters a fictional realm with a sense of both legacy and invention.
  • Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: We get a lot more monsters but a less visually impressive spectacle. The new Godzilla movie has a reptile dysfunction.
  • Courtney Howard @ FreshFiction.tv
    • Excerpt: Despite taking a few cues from the 2014 regenerated jump-off, it delivers satisfying thrills & terrific spectacle when it comes to what fans expect from these kinds of films
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: An absolute mess, and nowhere near enough monster action. Does not give good disaster. No fun at all. Makes me long for guys in rubber monster suits awkwardly sparring. At least you could see them.
  • Simon Miraudo @ Student Edge
    • Excerpt: All the character actors in the world can’t save Godzilla 2: King of the Monsters from calamity.
  • Jared Mobarak @ JaredMobarak.com
    • Excerpt: The contrivances come from always having everyone in the perfect place to do what they need to do. The “why” of those actions, however, is consistently steeped in what we know of their nature.
  • Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment
    • Excerpt: [Godzilla: King of the Monsters] delivers the monster battles you want to see on a huge screen while supplying a story ridiculous and straightforward enough to have fun with in between the visual effects mayhem.
  • João Pinto @ Portal Cinema [Portuguese]
    • Excerpt: Faithfull to the Kaijun Genre, Godzilla: King of The Monster works on the Monster Bowl level, but could be better in many other ways
  • Don Shanahan @ Every Movie Has a Lesson
    • Excerpt: Bad quippy comedy, nonsensical plot trappings, and unimportant character inclusions are the true weaknesses that defeat these monsters.
  • [New] | Amir Siregar @ Amir at the Movies [Indonesian]
    • Excerpt: ‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters’ delivers massive spectacles on kaiju fights. But, sadly, not much else: stale, lacked creativity, and just downright silly.
