The sound effects in this movie are extraordinary. That roar that Godzilla does? I gotta tell you that I kind of love that. I might make it the dial tone on my phone.

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.

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.

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.

I thoroughly enjoyed director Michael Dougherty's Godzilla: King of the Monsters. It made me smile.

It's just a big-budget waste of resources that weakly attempts some eco-warrior gibberish and leans heavily on disaster movie clichés.

Godzilla: King Of The Monsters presents such a preposterous and idiotic plot, that even those with expert knowledge of the franchise might find it impossible to follow.

I was never an aficionado of Japanese monster movies, but this overstuffed turkey makes me long for the original imports I saw as a kid. Two hours wasted: that's how I feel.

It's exactly what I needed at this time of the year...for the most part, I was along for the ride, and fearful for these characters.

It's one thing for a blockbuster to skillfully mix tones; it's another when nobody involved in the production seems to have been decisive about managing the overall vibe.
May 31, 2019
Child-in-peril scenarios and noble martyrdom inevitably play a role in Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Along the way, many fine actors are forced to navigate nonsensical situations and spout cornball dialogue.

The latest installment in the long-running Godzilla franchise is more of the same with an insipid blend of characters and monsters you can't appreciate.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters has big monster fights in the rain. But it feels by the end like you've just spent hours of your life on a fleeting amusement park ride.

The classic face-off arrives in an emotional vacuum rather than as an earned catharsis; the big fight never feels like a payoff.

This thing is an unholy mess.
