WHAT'S IT ABOUT

The crypto-zoological agency Monarch faces off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah.

    Godzilla 2: King of the Monsters is an incredibly silly movie that tries to do a lot of things, and does most of them very badly. As you might expect, the most enjoyable parts of the film are watching Godzilla and his new mates wreaking havoc across the globe - but it's important to note that these scenes are few and far between, and still aren't especially good. The movie simultaneously devotes the bulk of it's time to the human characters, while completely failing to make you care about them. While very few people are going to see a Godzilla movie on the basis of character development, not enough time is devoted to the monsters to justify how boring the rest of the movie is. Fans of the old-school Toho movies will be happy to see their roster of favourite monsters on the big screen, but the true stars of the movie aren't given enough screentime. I can't recommend this movie to anyone that isn't a die-hard kaiju fan, or a burgeoning filmmaker looking for a masterclass in what not to do. 2/5
