Godzilla: King of the Monsters is the sequel to the 2014 Godzilla movie. It follows the events of its predecessor as a group of baddies try to unleash every single monster or “titan” in the world, while a group of good guys try to stop them and help Godzilla defeat these monsters… Not an overly professional description, but I don’t feel like this movie screams for an overly professional review.

I’m kind of on the fence when it comes to this. The first film received a lot of backlash for not showing any Godzilla, which we all wanted when we went to go see a GODZILLA movie. Hell, I was one of the people that said that. It also had a problem with its human characters… That problem being that they were dull and extremely boring and two dimensional. The second film corrects its mistake and delivers not only on Godzilla but on every other monster you could possibly want. It delivers some amazing fight sequences that not only are a marvel to see, and hear, but truly make you awe at the size of these creatures. It does a great job making people feel insignificant. Many times I got goosebumps while watching…

On the flip-side though, the human characters are possibly worse than the first movie. They cast some good actors, actors that have proven to hold their own in character driven stories, and yet I find it impossible to even remember a single one of their names. Story was sacrificed for the sake of spectacle. Logic and reason were thrown out the window purely to reach the end goal of a monster infested world that’s cool to see (which it was). The writing was nothing short of lazy… And yet… I had a good time. I bought this because I purchased a big new TV and wanted something awesome to look at. And you know what? I got it. I watched this for the same reason I watch Fast and Furious movies, or Pacific Rim. To have fun and see cool shit. I feel like the people that made this were going for something more serious, but whether they were or not is irrelevant to the fact that this movie is fun. Nothing more than fun, but sometimes that is exactly what you want.
