Sheep Movie Review: Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019)

The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species - thought to be mere myths - rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity's very existence hanging in the balance.
Went to see Godzilla: King of the Monsters with my husband. I had pretty high expectations based on the trailer. But overall I was disappointed. It is pretty much a bunch of action scenes lined up with nothing between them. I didn't feel like there was a story other than Godzilla fights King Ghidorah (three-headed monster) and the people run around and dodge them. Plus there are 17 of these Titans but we only see maybe six of them...

The movie picks up a few years after the events of the 2014 Godzilla movie. And you need to stay till the end of the credits for a scene that hints at the next movie (yes, they are making another) coming out March 2020...King Kong vs Godzilla.

This is the kind of movie made for the big screen but is it worth the big screen price? Meh. Sometimes monsters and big special effects can offset the lack of storytelling, but Godzilla: King of the Monsters straddles that line.

Should you see it? Check out some other reviews or wait for it to go to DVD.

My husband gives it 3 1/2 Sheep

I give it 3 "Are you a good Titan or a bad Titan?" Sheep
