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…
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.
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.
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.

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.

Godzilla vs. Kong doesn’t pass the test.
