    • @Xenosaurian If you're not going to be respectful than fine, conversation over, you had no argument we're done here, came to your comment asking an innocent question. I took the time to read and reply to all your points, but if you're going to be an asshole, cool, good day to you sir. Also next time learn how to use periods in your run on sentences, or bare minimum use commas.

    • @Blaze12ification Keep on rambling.

      XenosaurianXenosaurian13 kun oldin
    • @Xenosaurian Really? I asked a question and was just curious, no need to get uptight about it, I just wanted your opinion. I'm not worshipping a fictional character as a God, he's no different than any other God that's ever existed, people fear and worship him in the universe, hence the name, no different from Zues in Greek mythology, Inanna of Mesopotamian myths, Cthulu in the HP Lovecraft's books, or even the bible or the Tora, stories of characters and creatures that are beyond human comprehension that are feared, worshiped, or both. I don't actually believe in a fictional dinosaur created because America nuked Japan, and they were telling the world how dangerous nuclear weaponry can be. Kong has no super powers, he's just a giant monkey, the only time he has was in the original Kong vs Godzilla, only because it was originally King Kong vs Frankenstein's Monster, in which the monster utilizes electricity thus Kong being weak to electricity, but because of the risk of being sued they decided to replace Monster with Godzilla, but the difference in abilities was too great so they even flipped the script on the ability to give Kong a fighting chance. It barely counts, he's never used that ability in any of his movies, and Godzilla both prior and after that movie has survived and taken no damage from electricity, even utilizing it to power himself up, so it doesn't count, he has no other abilities, even super intelligence by being a monkey, Godzilla has shown intelligence equal to that of a human the smartest animals on the planet. I'm not much of a Kong fan I'll admit, but compared to Godzilla, to the 35 movies in which he's had abilities ranging from nuclear breath, to flight, to surviving a meteor big enough to wipe out life on the planet without a scratch, compared to giant monkey that does nothing in the 12 movies he's in, but be giant monkey. The fact that bullets and a helicopter can hurt him compared to missiles not doing anything to Godzilla. He had nothing, so they gave him something that evened the playing field, but he still lost. Yes it was a pretty close fight, but even then without Godzilla's own abilities, and that's it made from another Godzilla's back plate he's still only able to fight by using his enemies abilities. Also not just a lizard, unlike Kong whose just a monkey Godzilla has several things mixed into it, it's a Tyrannosaurus Rex, with the back plates of a Stegosaurus, and the arms of an Iguanadon, originally one of the designs was going to be a giant octopus, even it's name Gojira is a mix of Gorilla and Whale to represent that it's a large beast of the sea but also a powerful beast of the land. Lots of thought went into Godzilla back when it was made in 1954, not just some giant lizard. Meanwhile the original King Kong was created backwards, the creator's vision was he just wanted a giant monkey on top of the tallest tower at the time swatting at planes, and developed the rest of the movie from there. Your point 2, the drugs had worn off long before that battle began. Point 4 he didn't need Godzilla's help Godzilla needed his help, that's why they teamed up, that was the whole point to that fight that I called back in King of Monsters, it wasn't rocket science to figure out they would team up back when that came out, especially if you saw the after credits. Your other numbers it's just you being angry, Godzilla just used everything to his advantage, because he's just as intelligent as Kong, Godzilla has been shown to formulate plans and strategies before, the only advantage Kong had was his speed because Godzilla is a tank. They did a lot to support Kong in this movie against a foe that wasn't an actual enemy and had every advantage, he was fighting as Godzilla's equal despite the disadvantage. It sounds like you wanted a fight between 2 boxers with referees, but that's not what this was, it was a war, as if both these creatures were entire armies fit into 1 creature. In the end neither of them lost because they had to team up, with Kong Godzilla would've lost to Mecha Godzilla, without Godzilla Kong would've lost, and they parted as equals, it's a modern day super hero vs movie that had no real winners. Because it is a Godzilla movie, intended as a trilogy as far back as the 2014 movie, Kong Skull Island was made just so it gave Kong a backstory, despite this Kong is the most and heavily focused monster of the trio that appeared in the movie, showing up in more than 1/2 of it. It's a Godzilla movie with Kong having the most, longest, and most important plot. Also if you're going to argue, it's a fictional world argument is pointless, then why start the argument in the 1st place? Why even bother watching anything from these movies in the 1st place? You're just some angry person because your favorite character lost, oh well, get over it and don't take it out on other people. If it was a waste of money then why did it do so popular? If it was such a waste of your money specifically then why did you? Obviously you're not much of a Godzilla fan, otherwise from the previous movies you would've known what it was capable of. You want a movie where Kong wins despite him having no reason for winning go watch the original from 1962.

    • ​@Blaze12ification First, Godzilla is not God, stop worshipping fictional characters, and both Kong and Godzilla are fictional giant super monsters with super powers and super weapons in a fantasy world, they aren't "just regular monkeys and lizards", and their characters and abilities have to be created, and you cannot reason with fiction. Second, the movie was portrayed as Kong's movie with Kong as protagonist but was really just a Godzilla-movie disguised as a Kong-movie, as revealed by how the movie downplayed Kong hard by (1) portraying him as being under a victim protection program to protect him from Godzilla and presenting him as an inferior easily-killed target and (2) having Kong drugged and chained during his first battle with Godzilla and having him struggle rather than just easily break lose and defend himself and (3) constantly needing the humans help and in the end even Godzilla's help later on and (4) he didn't get to keep his throne for very long because Godzilla had to destroy it as soon as we discovered it and (5) Godzilla beating him badly and being mocked during their Hong Kong fight while having him run away as he's hit by the atomic breath and (6) his axe upgrade didn't make any difference and was pointless and the characters have to tell you "Kong won that round" rather than making it apparent through the events on screen and (7) Godzilla just chases him, and bites and claws him, and dislocates his shoulder, and stomps him down to the point he can't get up and is almost dying and eventually needs his heart restarted and (8) he didn't even get any real victory with Mechagodzilla either to compensate for his previous defeat to Godzilla because they had to make Godzilla save him and team up and (8) in the end it just had Kong dropping the axe while Godzilla just leaves and then nothing else. This is utterly unacceptable and unforgivable and it ruins the entire experience and fails to live up to the hype and doesn't deserve any money.

    • @Xenosaurian Downplayed? How so, most of the movie is focused on him despite being primarily a Godzilla movie, he's nothing more than a giant monkey but they gave him an axe that uses Godzilla's nuclear breath against the God himself. Otherwise he's nothing more than a giant monkey that simps for Marilyn Monroe types, vs a 3 dinosaur fusion that's a walking nuclear bomb that breathes fire. Not to mention that reptiles never stop growing throughout their lives, so them saying Kong was going to get bigger between his movie and this one was not going to give him an advantage.

  • While the two of them fighting was entertaining, I was also pleased to see Kong and Godzilla team up and make up at the end, because the two of them are really good, misunderstood creatures who have been mistreated by man.

  • Just saw this at a drive in theater last night and I didn’t watch this to prepare myself (nor have I even seen the other movies before it, it was double feature and the one we really wanted to see was the 2nd movie). This movie was a hilarious kind of dumb for my sister and I. We had nothing to go off of and we didn’t know any names and just gave them our own (Neverending Story’s Atreyu for the deaf kid, the mom, the guy, other chick, obvious bad guy, and team conspiracy theorists) a lot of it was unnecessarily high tech. Called a lot of plot points (and a lot of bull💩!) Definitely fun if you don’t take it seriously in the slightest bit I can give them this though, that was real sign language. Subtitles they gave were a little odd word choice every so often, but mostly accurate

  • I'm a relatively casual Godzilla and King Kong fan. I've seen a few movies for each, and I did pick up a lot of info from watching James Rolfe stuff. I did enjoy the movie but the last act was easily the best part.

    DrowmercDrowmerc13 kun oldin
  • This movie was so disappointing and anticlimactic. It will not be forgiven for how it horribly mistreated, disrespected, and downplayed Kong in favor of Godzilla. This was an insult not worth the hype nor money. While yes it had a lot of good content in terms of action, effects, cinematography, and most notably Kong's character and his relationship to Jia and his ancient history. But it had too much wasted potential and made too many mistakes, particularly in regards to King Kong as the true king of the monsters. This should have been the movie where Kong is overcoming the odds and secures a definitive victory and Godzilla is finally receiving a clear loss to Kong, but instead we got another ambiguous "victory" that could be interpreted differently while clearly leaning towards abusing Kong and elevating Godzilla, and right after Godzilla knocks Kong out, Kong doesn't even get his victory with Mechagodzilla because of course Godzilla has to intervene. In fact, it appears Kong needs to be helped by either humans or Godzilla several times in this film, and it gets too much and Kong gets too beaten while Godzilla remains too overpowered with too much plot armor as in previous MonsterVerse media. So unfortunately the positives does not save this film nor the MonsterVerse franchise, and it ultimately is brutally killed and abused at the hands of Godzilla-fanboy Adam Wingard. I mean the movie downplayed Kong so hard by (1) portraying him as being under a victim protection program to protect him from Godzilla and presenting him as an inferior easily-killed target and (2) having Kong drugged and chained during his first battle with Godzilla and having him struggle rather than just easily break lose and defend himself and (3) constantly needing the humans help and in the end even Godzilla's help later on and (4) he didn't get to keep his throne for very long because Godzilla had to destroy it as soon as we discovered it and (5) Godzilla beating him badly and being mocked during their Hong Kong fight while having him run away as he's hit by the atomic breath and (6) his axe upgrade didn't make any difference and was pointless and the characters have to tell you "Kong won that round" rather than making it apparent through the events on screen and (7) Godzilla just chases him, and bites and claws him, and dislocates his shoulder, and stomps him down to the point he can't get up and is almost dying and eventually needs his heart restarted and (8) he didn't even get any real victory with Mechagodzilla either to compensate for his previous defeat to Godzilla because they had to make Godzilla save him and team up and (8) in the end it just had Kong dropping the axe while Godzilla just leaves and then nothing else. This is utterly unacceptable! CURSED be this film!

  • Wowzers! If you enjoyed this movie you're going to LOVE what happens next: While still in the planning stages, the ingenious K&G sequel will take Kong back to his roots and show us the events that transformed the thousand foot monkey into the plucky 30ft. brawler kidnapped from his Skull Island home by an overzealous Carl Denham and put on display as a sideshow attraction in the Big Apple. For the first time, we learn the remarkable matchmaking role Godzilla played in setting Kong up with the beautiful Ann Darrow, and we witness him standing at Kong's side, fulfilling the time-honoured tradition of "best man" during a most spectacular wedding scene. When the crafty Denham captures the now 30ft. "8th Wonder" and makes for America, Godzilla follows in swift pursuit and becomes Kong's protector in a strange and violent new world called "civilization." A life and death showdown looms when Godzilla picks up Kong and his diminutive bride and deposits them on the top of the Empire State Building, as a locked and loaded squadron of America's finest closes in to shoot the happy couple down...

  • Not a bad movie....especially if you see it in Imax and the seats shake from the sound quality. xD I would say the audience is supposed to root for Kong so we are shown scenes of him bonding with a child to connect us to his humanity...that is the reason. And it works.

  • I liked the movie in terms of visual effects, animation, voice acting, but it's more of the plot I don't like, it was ok, and the reason I say that is because SPOILER ALERT: both godzilla and king kong work together to stop mecha godzilla because an organization called APEX tried to replace him, and it didn't work in the end, that's basically the whole plot of the movie, but this movie gets 6/10 for the plot, but everything else is a 8/10, I know people will be mad at me, yes, they do fight at certain times, but it's more towards the end that really gets out of the VS fighting action, the movie was great, the plot did ok.

  • I personally thought the actual fights between Kong and Godzilla was fun, despite the camera movement was what made hard to watch at times vs it dark/rain/smoke. But....spoilers When they teamed up to fight Megagodzilla it was a Now Things Got Interesting Moment. Even if the bad guy that created Megagodzilla was the cliché bad guy to where I knew when he had his commuppets. Which to me was good and bad at the same time. I also liked how it looked like Godzilla and Kong called a truce

    Gianina BadamiGianina BadamiOy oldin
  • I think GVK is in an area between KOTM and 2014; with KOTM being the superior film and 2014 being the less good one. The thing about KOTM is that the human storyline and the kaiju storyline actually parallel each other pretty clearly, while still having really good kaiju action. KOTM is pretty dang close to being the perfect Hollywood-sourced Godzilla film. 2014's human plot was directly at odds with the Kaiju plot, while also being kinda boring without Brian Cranston's character and also taking up way too much screentime. They wanted to slow reveal the giant monsters though, and the film acts as an "introduction" to the idea of kaiju that sets up the groundwork of the Monsterverse. Godzilla vs Kong has great monster action and also the monsters are on-screen frequently. The human plot only gets a little distracting. The problem it has I think is that there are two different, unrelated human sideplots that don't parallel the kaiju plot as cleanly as the human sideplot in KOTM did. So yeah I'd put it at about the halfway point between 2014 and KOTM. Better overall than 2014 (whose sins are forgivable for the role it plays in this franchise), not as good as KOTM (due to a less well-realized human sideplot) Still a very fun film and I recommend it.

  • Critic summed it well. As a Godzilla fan it's not that good. It's more of a Kong movie. Prefer the first 2 Godzilla movies, Shin or the old ones. The people, the families or the government story is nothing here. The first 2 movies at least trying. With the exception of the girl and her guardian. The fights are good, good angles indeed, fighting like MMA fighters although we're getting close to power rangers movies... As they did in Pacific Rim2 sadly. My disappointment is the iconic 3rd monster is ugly to me. Prefer it in Ready Player one. And no epic close-ups from it or from Big G or no build-ups just everybody is jumping into the fight. Well comparing how very mediocre the WW movie was cause of Covid I should be happy It's decent...

  • I think it could've been better in two ways: 1, homage the original fight movie by including a scene of Kong getting drunk to explain how they got him on that boat, and 2, when Dr. Russel was arguing with Maddy about Godzilla he should've specified that the reason she should be focusing on being a student or whatever was due to her therapist... cause yeah no way she doesn't have PTSD and survivor's guilt after nearly dying umpteen times culminating in screaming at Ghidora as he prepared to kill her only to then watch her mother die less then an hour later...

  • I didn't hate it. But there were some things in the first one the I wish they had taken to heart with this one. I honestly liked the cinematography in the Bryan Cranston one better. It felt....I don't know....more natural? A lot of ground level shots and shots that felt like it was 1st person instead of 3rd person. I liked that. The one thing I HATED about all 4 of these movies is improbable, or really impossible plot point. And understand I'm not talking fictional plot points. As we ARE talking about a monster movie after all. This is not real life. No I'm talking People sitting there and just gaping for 1:02 minute instead of running, leads to their chopper getting swatted on takeoff because the engine wasn't running. Or all the choppers circling in close to Kong so he can swat them from the sky and they have to go on foot across the island. Or radiation is too high so someone has to sacrifice themselves to detonate a nuke. DUDE. A nuke is not something that needs to be 12 feet away from someone. The list of this contrived crap is endless, and is the hallmark of lazy as hell writing. Its far worse on some then others. It was in KvG, (No spoilers.) the solution tap water came up with was beyond stupid. I checked out of the movie after that. That is not how that #@(*& works. Its as bad as water is what can defeat the aliens in Signs. Its sloppy writing. I do not mind corny stuff like the Hollow Earth crap. But at least craft a narrative around these ideas that doesn't feel like a 12 year old wrote it. I'm sorry but the older I get the more I want movies to not treat the audience like idiots. I think there is room for a Monster movie / beat em up movie that still give viewers a passible good story that doesn't leave plot holes open that you could sail an aircraft carrier through.

  • Thankfully, there were no Kennies.

  • I can't tell if society as a whole has gotten really dumb, I mean even dumber than it seems to be or everyone is so afraid of being the odd duck out they just parrot talking points and don't form their own opinions. This movie was shit, total and utter shit. Some if not the worst written human characters in a film ever, have seen no one present any valid points otherwise, the only one they ever praise is the little girl, but they can't actually describe why they think she did a good job other than they find her cute or touching she's deaf, and her relationship with kong is so precious because of the previous two things. She's the most stand out character of the humans, but that doesn't take much when you see how poorly written and acted all the other parts are. The story/world building is so paper thin that it can't even follow it's own rules it sets because either the writers have a.d.d. or more likely they know most of the audience has it. Everyone says oh but the fights, the fights are what make it so great, how, they were literally the same as every other cgi fight fest in every other action film just insert what ever 3d model in the fight machine, it literally is no different than a child smashing their action figures together at this point. Which brings me to the other defense people use, the film is just fun or you do not know how to have fun if you don't like it. Which is another lame excuse because I can name plenty of dumb fun films I have watched that were not written like they were wrote by 10 year old's writing for 5 year olds. I mean I literally went into this film expecting dumb fun and got something even dumber than that with zero fun. I guess it wouldn't bother me so much, but when shit like this does well, it lowers the bar some more as everyone realizes they can produce literal garbage and find enough simpletons to throw money at them and beg for more, so why on earth would they even try to make a good film when it is literally a waste of their money and time, art doesn't pay the bills you know. It would be one thing if it were little kids praising this movie, but I'm starting to think there is something in the water when this many adults are frothing at the mouth for this film, that or you are all phony's and liers trying to impress one another for some strange reason aka shallow and afraid to have your own unique thoughts. Or maybe just most of you are studio interns/bots that are paid/programmed to praise it online, who knows. Cheers to the other non zombies out there who watched this film objectively and had the balls or good judgement to call it out for the crap that it is, we seem to be a dying breed. The positive side of it is it makes you appreciate your old favorite films that have stood the test of time, you can make all the shitty movies that you want, the beauty of a well written movie is you can watch it 1000 times and never tire of it, good luck watching some of todays movies more than once and not being outrageously bored after the hype trains die down. That is all films are anymore it feels like, hype trains for simpletons, ah well. Looking forward to how horrible they can keep making films and still find people screaming from the top of their lungs how they love it so much. Honestly, if someone were to pick dog shit off the ground and bite into it and express to you how delicious it was would you pick it up and starting eating it too, most likely not, however if you witnessed 10 people pick up the shit and proclaim the same thing would you try it then, I bet a lot of you would and then even if it still tasted like shit and you realized you had shit in your mouth you would smile and proclaim you loved it too because some how being one with the herd is worth more to you than your own dignity as you suck on that turd smiling trying to fit in.

But yes this movie does revel in it's overall impossibility and goofiness and it makes a great balance that you expect from a movie like this. This is a true golden era kaiju movie with american effects and budget I won't say it's the best overall movie of 2021 since we haven't even reached the summer yet, but this movie is definitely one of the best kaiju films of all time.

  • As a huge Godzilla fan and big King Kong fan I was hugely satisfied by it and thought that it fulfilled the needs of the genre well. I think the characters were meant to be corny, as that falls well in line with the Godzilla Showa era films such as King Kong Vs. Godzilla, Invasion of the Astro-Monster, Son of Godzilla, and the majority of Showa films after that. Great review as usual! 👍❤uzworld.info/player/video/hKu7iamlnreuc54

And, even though a lot of the background characters could have but cut out, I never felt annoyed by or stuck with them, which is a credit to the writing and pacing. My biggest nitpick is that people just happen to feel or look at something and know what it means. I get they wanted to keep the movie going, but man.

  • Die hard fan. It filled every check list for my dinosaur brain . Kong and Godzilla smash and destroy . The cameo was a great bonus.

  • Doug, I totally disagree. I am over after credit sequences. This was just a legit action film that you might have seen in the '80s if they had better CGI

  • As a die hard Godzilla fan I feel relieved that this entry has captured the public's imagination and feels more suitable for normies/nonGodzilla fans, which King Of The Monsters sadly wasn't.

  • It’s a shame that practical effects, and stop motion is a lost art. Sorry, but I hate watching a bunch of fake video game cutscenes. There’s no real passion to most of what Hollywood puts out anymore. It’s all just about making money, and they know people will go see any of these franchise type movies no matter how stupid they are. I miss real film makers that pushed the boundaries, and challenged theirselves to bring to life something incredible. The days of real car chases, and actual monsters on screen are over. That’s why I appreciate the youtubers like you and James Rolf. You both have used practical effects at times when you can. Actually putting real effort into your videos. James especially with his use of practical effects. His movie was a labor of love with all the work he did building those miniatures, and everything. I wish these film makers that have endless budgets would actually put that kinda effort into what they do. Now a days it’s all just about making money, and they don’t care that they are ripping off the public by doing everything the lazy way. Nor do they put much effort into the writing anymore either. The great days of film being an art form are virtually gone.

  • I'm going to place my big criticism after giving some space to avoid SPOILERS. Don't "Read More" if you want to avoid them. ... ... ... ... ... While I enjoyed a majority of the film, I had issues when they reached the Hollow Earth. Without any real explanation, it looked like a greater intelligence had designed it. The slot for the axe, the symbols on the floor, the smooth walls... It's the one part of the movie where a lot of gaping holes appear and are never patched up.

  • Is it at least better than Wingard's Blair Witch Mountain 2016? That film was a massive steamy pile of shit.

  • To be accurate very first Godzilla movie from 1954 did take itself seriously and you were meant to feel pain of those people that suffered from Godzilla's rampage. It was first OG Godzilla Vs. Kong that series started to take itself less seriously.

  • This movie DEFINITLEY checked off all the boxes for me as a Godzilla fan. Only small thing I wished we got more of, was the villains. I won't go into spoilers, but one of them should have gotten more screen time...Other than that, I was having my mind blown the entire movie.

  • Meh, wasn’t expecting citizen Kane, but it also wasn’t really all that entertaining as a silly monster flick.

  • I enjoyed this a lot. Watching a computer game .. “street fighter or mortal kombat “Round one FIGHT” “Round 2 FIGHT” Kong is “K.O”. GODZILLA WINS. Overall 9/10. It would have been 10/10 IF THEY REMOVED STUPID UNWANTED SCREAMS OF GODZILLA and Kong. My ears 👂 nearly popped. Other than that the best Godzilla movie 🍿 watch .. Godzilla still the king.

  • This movie was so fun! ...When it was focusing on the giant monsters. When it was focusing on the podcaster squad, it was not as good, but the fights kept me interested!

  • Two points: First I thought they did a great job "framing" the big action scenes. I don't know if that's the right word, but the always gave the action scenes some sense of scale or gave you something to focus on instead of just a random blur of color. A lot of action movies fail at this so it's great that you can tell what is actual happening instead of just a bunch of shaky cam. 2: there were two references I noticed, at least that I can remember, In the movie "King Kong escapes" they try to take Kong to the North Pole to mine some rare element. And in the Original King Kong vs Godzilla Kong gets a power boost from electricity.

  • I wouldn’t say Godzilla isn’t commentary. Now for the majority of Godzilla movies I agree, after a while it was hardly any commentary. But the original Godzilla and the concept of the character is almost entirely commentary.

  • These movies when from set in real but fictional world to a near future one set in a cardboard miniature and I don’t think that’s a bad thing.
