It feels like overkill. Too many under-developed characters populate the story, too many plot points are crammed in, and the special effects are bludgeoning.

With its mind-numbingly dull action, flat characters, and nonsensical plot, it's rather difficult to find a single redeeming quality in the entirety of the two-hour tedious mess that is Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

This prompt sequel barely survives its loud need for displaying stuff on screen. It's no follow up story. It's more of a MonsterVerse launch. [Full review in Spanish].

...there's enough here to keep kaiju fans hooked for at least one more outing.

Nevertheless I mostly enjoyed myself though this installment definitely lacks for personality.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters is an incredibly fun continuation of the franchise, and one that respects and honours its roots.

GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS never knows [what type of movie they are telling] and tries throwing all sorts of dead-end plot threads and ineffective emotional beats at the audience.

This is the sort of film that'll make you think cinema is dead.

This is a film that fixes some of the previously problems in this universe. But, it also makes some new mistakes. But, I was never bored and it absolutely delivers the action, mayhem, and destruction you want from the genre.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters doesn't hold back on the big monster fights, and it's definitely the best Godzilla film to date from Hollywood.
July 3, 2019
Godzilla [King of the Monsters] is a mostly pointless in-between instalment before the inevitable King Kong/Godzilla showdown to come.
July 3, 2019
Maybe it's time to include Godzilla in the discussion of our richest cinematic franchises.

The cast is stacked with otherwise brilliant actors stuck in a borderline incomprehensible plot and forced to play second fiddle to monsters whose powers of wonder wear off fast.
June 27, 2019
It's not very pleasant to look at, it invests way too much in the character arcs of its blank cast, and it still does the thing the 2014 film got dinged for.
June 25, 2019
[Maintains] the saga's general good standard, which is forgotten with the same ease with which it is enjoyed. [Full review in Spanish]
June 24, 2019
A beautiful and stimulatingly coherent film with the soul of the kaiju eiga. [Full review in Spanish]
June 22, 2019
It is never clear what the objectives of the characters are in a panorama that is so cliche. [Full Review in Spanish]

Sometimes you have to be honest about the movie you really are - smashy smash. If you can reconcile that, then it's not so awful.
June 21, 2019
It's typical of the film to set up a major sequence in which flying monsters Mothra and Rodan dog-fight, only to cut that short and follow Mark as he struggles to open some airplane doors.
June 18, 2019
A legion of typically insightful detractors have somehow surprisingly blasted Godzilla: King of the Monsters for leaning too hard into the humans and away from the creatures. Maybe it felt that way to some, but it's literally just untrue.
