This review may contain spoilers.
1. A random as hell and ever stake raising film with pretty horrible dialogue (specifically one liners) and cheesy as hell action movie iconography.
2. Specie-ist in the most EGREGIOUS ways possible (Godzilla was made to be a doopy reptile while mammals [humans ie Kong’s cousins] create nearly irreconcilable conflict and damage to humanity and other worlds) , which truly led to some intense as hell self-reflection on humanity and interesting conversations about the inevitability and combustibility of social constructs, time, the pathos of science fiction and utopia.
3. MESMERIZING and a complete source of escapism from this wild world- I was audibly cheering and clapping for my guy King Kong, aka the titan who would be the best dad, by the final few fight sequences. I will say: I was always taken out of it when I’d think too deeply about the intentions behind the little deaf girl’s costuming.
And, needing no number, the objective truth: Godzilla vs King Kong was a fun fucking time.
