Reviews: Godzilla vs. Kong (2021)

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

  • [New] | Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Texan Reviews
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Someone ought to inform the three credited for this story that it takes more than two special fx sequences to create a satisfying movie experience. “Godzilla vs. Kong” is chock full of illogical nonsense…
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: Godzilla Vs. Kong is obviously not the most demanding film, but it isn’t without its wonderful touches. As pure spectacle goes, there’s a lot of detail, personality, and imagination to be found.
  • Sarah Gopaul @ Digital Journal
    • Excerpt: The need to weave an emotional thread throughout the narrative somewhat undermines the blockbuster battles and reduces the anticipated fun.
  • Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: It’s when Kong meets Godzilla in the neon-lit streets of Hong Kong that this people-centric drama redeems itself into the movie you came to see.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: Everything a monster movie needs: Monsters, natch. Cute kids who Know Things. Nerdy-hot scientists. Spectacular sci-fi visions. Humor but no cheese. Warmth but no schmaltz. And a superb green message.
  • Lee Jutton @ Film Inquiry
    • Excerpt: It’s the battle we’ve all been waiting for, and for the most part, it delivers on the promise of some good old-fashioned smash and grab entertainment. Yet while Godzilla vs. Kong is by far the best installment of this rebooted franchise, the MonsterVerse could still learn a few lessons from some of its Showa era forerunners: mainly, how to write human characters that we don’t resent every moment they’re on screen.
  • Dan Lybarger @ Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
    • Excerpt: There’s something to be said for a movie that lives up to its title.
  • Mike McGranaghan @ The Aisle Seat
    • Excerpt: Despite being saddled with a plot that’s sometimes laughably absurd, this new movie manages to get things back on course, delivering on the promise of its title.
  • Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See
    • Excerpt: I truly hated the first half of this movie, but the second is truly glorious.
  • Amir Siregar @ Amir at the Movies
    • Excerpt: Godzilla vs. Kong’ serves fun, total mayhem, and thrilling spectacle to watch.
  • Josh Taylor @ The Forgetful Film Critic
    • Excerpt: There’s nothing wrong with enjoying a movie that feels like a rollercoaster, which is what I want out of a Theme Park Movie. If I’m seeing that kind of movie, give me half-a-dozen or so gargantuan set pieces that roll seamlessly, one right into the next, with a few precious moments here and there to let me catch my breath. Godzilla vs. Kong doesn’t pass the test.
  • Sebastian Zavala @ Cinencuentro [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: The movie is what it is; a giant monster movie with excellent digital effects, and thrilling, well-choreographed combat.
