STEVEN’s review published on Letterboxd:
Not sure why I was seeing a lot of heavy criticism towards this concerning its plot and human characters seeing as it's very clearly a monster movie from the get-go -- if you didn't like the other three, you won't like this, so just sit down and have some fun with it. Godzilla vs. Kong pits two of the most iconic characters against each other, while the power struggle from the very beginning and overall narrative works in favor of King Kong after Skull Island.
The special effects are incredible, and this is very deserving of its wide theatrical release; my nephew asked me to take him to see it in 3D, and I consider it money well spent. Our main cast was surprisingly well-developed here, too. Some are new, while some return from the last film, and it all works to build on the action and the stakes continue to rise. I'd love to see this cinematic universe continue to expand, they're onto something great here.
