Stream Your Heart Out: “Godzilla vs. Kong”
by Bailey Weber
Two gigantic titans destroying cities and trying to become the alpha, what’s there not to love? “Godzilla vs. Kong” had that and much more. The film delved into theories of another world below us, had eye-catching fight scenes, and tied up the loose ends of “The Monsterverse,” in case the series comes to a close.
The film began on what seemed to be Skrull Island, with a young girl running up to Kong, and showing him a doll she made of him. It then pans out to scientists observing Kong’s behavior and writing notes. Kong gets angry at something and throws a large stick, and it hits a wall in the sky, revealing to the audience that it was not Skrull Island but a containment area.
This throws the movie into full-gear because Godzilla then realizes he has a worthy opponent. He creates mass destruction looking for Kong.
“Godzilla vs. Kong” had astounding fight scenes and choreography. The plot had interesting twists and turns because of the many different characters the movie followed. The audience saw people working with Kong, people looking to help Godzilla, and other scientists trying to create a super monster.
I recommend this movie to anyone that doesn’t take films too seriously. It was a fun, action-packed movie with little-to-no pacing of the story but almost constant action. The main part of the film was two monsters essentially having a wrestling match.
“Godzilla vs. Kong” is in theaters now and also streaming on HBO Max. It is extremely easy to watch and very enjoyable for what it is—a movie full of action and barely any plot.
