Godzilla II: King of the Monsters

Godzilla goes up against Mothra, Rodan and the three-headed King Ghidorah in this blockbuster action sequel with an ensemble cast including Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown, Ken Watanabe, Sally Hawkins, O'Shea Jackson and more.

Secretive scientific agency Monarch, seen in 2014's Godzilla and 2017's Kong: Skull Island, has spent decades studying massive unidentified terrestrial organisms. As more god-sized monsters emerge, considered by a rival organisation to be essential to Earth's survival by wiping out humanity, both Monarch and Godzilla must fight battles on an epic scale.

If you go to these things to see cities flambéed and flattened, you won't leave disappointed. At the same time - almost impressively - director and co-screenwriter Michael Dougherty is savvy enough to make the human drama monster-shaped.

...if you're in the mood to see skyscraper-sized monsters smacking the everloving shit out of one another, you're absolutely going to have a good time...

An overload of repetitive, joyless destruction that mistakes volume and demolition for actual excitement.

If you've found yourself in Taupo with 3 hours to fill before your bus home, then hoo boy is this the only thing screening at the Starlight Cinema till then. I was strangely impressed Michael Daughert had assembled the cast from last time with the Toho films monsterverse together on screen for my afternoon out of the cold & wind. Whereas Godizilla (2014)...

It definitely has quality action and spectacle, but definitely not enough quality writing and characters. But maybe that's all you need.
