Godzilla or the monkey himself, King Kong?

Their fight was amazing and totally legendary. Warner Bros. delivered a heart stopping, jaw dropping action movie. Here was the epic clash between the two eponymous giant creatures with histories of being dominant. The action is intense, especially the final battle where I was left breathless and could easily imagine crowds of viewers cheering like in Endgame. The visuals in the movie are so beautiful that you can pause any scene to get a magical wallpaper. The destruction scenes were so epic and the effects are fantastic. All this makes me want to watch it once again.

The plot of the story was alright since it was smooth and predictable. The only thing that I disliked about the movie were the human scenes. They kept adding extra human stories and made the movie very annoying. The radiation breathing lizard and the gargantuan ape both had a very good amount of screen time in fights with each other, and the aircraft fight scene and hollow earth fight scenes are amazing. When the monsters are fighting each other, it makes it more interesting to watch the well designed action. I watched this movie like two times, one with my friends and the other with my family who did enjoy the movie.

One of my favorite scenes was when they did their second fight in Hong Kong and just them roaring at each other was very cool. Even though my homie kong lost the second battle, he won the respect when he screamed back at Godzilla. That scene gave me “fast and the furious” vibes when Brian lost the race but gained Dom’s respect. After that Godzilla was beaten up by the robot himself, Mechagodzilla. Godzilla was “owned” on to be honest, and it was the homie Kong who came in clutch and brutally destroyed Mechagodzilla. However, this turn of events allowed Godzilla and King Kong to become allies.
