“ The monster fights are some of the most exciting things I've ever seen in a movie (and I highly recommend seeing this in a theater if you can).
“ I found the entire film action packed and entertaining since the minute it started, although the family parts were a bit soppy and cheesy I still found it appropriate for the film and helped me get a feel for their perspective.
“ This is Godzilla film i wanted to see this sequel proof's the first 2014 Godzilla film I have always liked Godzilla film franchise film saga of all time, when 2014 film reboot comeback the Godzilla 2014 the trailer made it look like intense and wanna see film but when you see it, it's boring as hell because you don't see Godzilla until like first 40 or 45 minutes of movie when the film goes for 2 hour long film something minutes he is less in it and human actors in first film are more in it like 97% of film how does people like first (2014) Godzilla when he is not much in it like 8% ?
“ First, we had the 2014 Godzilla, where many complained that too much of the giant monster action was seen solely from the vantage point of boring humans.
“ Leaving the now obvious flat human performances that were rather forgetful, the monster action is so thrilling I had goosebumps several times!!!
“ From the misguided do gooder accidentally unleashing human extermination to the roguish scientist proving himself superior in strategy and critical thinking than a largely inept military, to the petulant child helping to save the day through misbehavior, King of the Monsters buries anything enjoyable under Kong sized pile of ho hum.
“ The film is too long (over two hours) and too politically correct.
“ Seeing monsters rumble over and over is boring.
“ After that its just more and more dull as the film goes on because you just bombarded with fight after fight after fight.
“ look you may think it's 2 hour long boring movie of all time it's not.
“ I had to walk out for 15 minutes just to keep from falling asleep.
“ Incredibly boring......
“ Without that human anchor, action scenes featuring these giant animals can only carry a film so far before becoming boring.
“ While it is more entertaining than the last film and has an upgrade in screentime for its creatures, it's still suffering from typical Hollywood blockbuster chaos.
“ The whole eco-terrorist subplot gets tedious fast, especially Vera Farmiga's self-righteous/bitter/villainous/heroic-mom shtick and her bonding/unbonding/rebonding with her precocious daughter.
“ There is no plot.
“ The end result is just a bit bland and forgettable.
“ they are all boring and annoying.
“ The Exposition Dumps - Part of what made the human scenes so painful to watch was how straight up boring they were.
“ Rodan's introduction in Mexico was probably the most intense part of the movie.
“ The graphics were great and the monster battles were thrilling.
“ Well there is no emotions on this sequel, it is complete unnecesary, bored, long, bad, jif you want to watch it just wait it on HBO, netflix or dvd
“ I have watched every Goji film and saw an enjoyable charm to every one of them.......
“ I really enjoyed it.
“If you want riveting plot lines and award winning acting save up for the Cannes Film Festival.
“ What a boring movie.
“ A Waste of Time and Money .
“ This is a well presented, fun, action packed monster romp with everyone's favourite king of the monsters.
“ As cool as the monster fights were, they were so disjointed and interrupted.
“ The whole story is no story.
“ It's fun, entertaining and at many times will keep the viewer on the edge of their seat.
“ This movie was so slow and the only thing it did was portray the military as inept, that only one scientist is smart and has all the answers and as usual he is in a field doing photography and has to be called back because he created something, on and on and on andWHY did it take 2 hours to show Godzilla in full display????
“ It contained like every single stereotypical cliche that you could think of, unlikeable idiotic characters, zero consequences of any action (large stealth motherships being able to apparently land on the sea), no respect for any form of physics, tiresome family histrionics, the world apparently getting demolished but endless empty Ospreys available for character's tedious errands, inane environmental preaching and a script that felt like a string of woeful fortune cookies.
“ Sadly, most of the movie was just painfully dull, and the few laugh out loud scenes(Vera Farmigas speech, Charles Dance's shrug moment, the very end) are not enough to recommend this total pile of trash.
“Dougherty's dull screenplay is the culprit here, and I wished Godzilla would've just used his atomic breath and made his own film.
“ It has a washed out color pallette that I think was supposed to provide contrast to the monsters but just made the whole thing feel pretentious.
“ Epic, loud, and an awesome 2 hour of intense action.
“ Boring, predictable, mocking .
“ There are plenty of fights between Godzilla and the other Titans and they are exciting.
“ There is literally no story to it.
“ You could feel everyone in the theater felt bored too, no one even clapped when cool stuff happen because we were bored for so long.
“ This film delivers where it counts, beautiful and stunning creature designs and amazing fight sequences.
“Unfortunately this film has taken that complaint from audiences and has gone 180 degrees the opposite in this film because there is so much action and Godzilla fighting that it becomes boring and bland.
“ Mind blowing action sequences and the acting was pretty good.
“ Character motivations are muddled, and the overall storyline is largely convoluted and uninteresting.
“ If you like popcorn action, stunning visuals, loud scary monsters and summertime madness, this one is for you!
“ Seen it today in imax and it was breathtaking!
“ Simply unfinished, uninteresting, and unoriginal storyline followed by more glimpses of these newfound historic monsters.
“ Kyle Chandler did fine he is a least better lead then to Aaron Taylor Johnson witch i didn't like him in this movie because he was boring as hell him as series actor with boring.
“ Even with some good actors in the cast, after a while it's simply boring and headache-inducing, and doesn't create much anticipation for the future despite how hard it tries to do just that.
“ That was about the only problem I had with the film since I found the overall visuals and action sequences to be awesome in breathtaking in the overall cinematic scale of it all as I previously mention, aswell as being so clearly shot.
“ "Godzilla: King Of The Monsters" is loud but dull.
“ Does it want to be a compelling piece about global warming ?
“ I really enjoyed it.
“ Every scene including monsters is stunning.
“ Good impressive monsters but a lame, uninspired bland film .
“ Godzilla KOTM is a love letter to Toho's classic monster franchise & is by far the best American version yet despite what some might say, Gareth Edwards 2014 movie had it's moments but was lacking those huge monster moments that it was crying out for, here Michael Dougherty (Obviously a super fan) knows exactly what you have come to see and delivers some truly breathtaking & beautiful shots, all filmed like a spectacular painting.
“ Overall, Godzilla: King of the Monsters has some amazing sound editing, editing, and score with great visual effects but lacks a good script or compelling characters.
“ Tywin is uninteresting.
“ Waste of time..!!. .
“ But all I got was a long and boring movie.
“ A monster battle.. The fights between mothra, rodan, guidorah and godzilla are amazing.. Breathtaking and the sountrack...
“ It's just safe and predictable blockbuster filmmaking; it hits every beat you expect it to.
“ Very loud, very dumb, and very entertaining .
“At a far too long two hours plus, Dougherty's adventure gets caught up in endless and rather thoughtless set-pieces after thoughtless set-pieces (bizarrely filmed with off-putting shaky cam and grey/smoke filled pallet) as Godzilla and a bunch of humans we really couldn't care less for find out that there's a number of big bad "titans" out there ready to wreak havoc on our seemingly inept defense forces and unsuspecting human population.
“ Very boring, same old same old, and every character would pitch in for an answer for any angles or theories at some point throughout the film as though it's the only way the director could think of explaining any situation that materialised to the audience and at a quick rate.
“ There is some of it to help care about the people a bit but let's be honest we all came to see a giant monster whoop other giant monsters all over the world and that was delivered with stunning fight scenes.
“ Seriously Thrilling, a Total Epic .
“ Slow and very dark lighting .
“ Absolutely stunning.
“ Honestly, it was just really enjoyable.
“ He was written so boringly, the only best scene he has is the deep scene he has to a character that I forgot the name of, then he goes.
“ Other than that, quite entertaining to watch if skip the human part.
“ Worst Movie Ever .
“ I don't even think I can give this movie a score higher than 0 in the plot category because it had no plot - or more like the plot was so dense and unintelligent that it comes across like the movie didn't have a plot at all.
“ They were on the edge of their seats and wanted to watch this movie again and again if they could.
“First half hour so boring I almost fell asleep.
“I had two naps during this film but I should just have got up and walked out.
“" fury Capt. Kirk *alone* is equipped and entitled to express) by Every Single Character and, well, it gets trite after a while.
“ Giant monsters rise from the oceans, some with the intent to harm, some to protect, and these titans battle it out behind the backdrop of a boring human storyline which steals the majority of screen time.
“Overall, Godzilla King Of Monsters is a fun and action packed film that fans will love.
“ And you can leave the theater feeling satisfied with the success of how well the monster fights are.
“ Visually stunning, a couple surprises, and even has a reasonable plot device to keep the humans in the middle of it.
“ Loud, pretentious, and self consuming.
“ It was a much more exciting film than the 2014 movie (which I thought was great).
“ This film manages to balance maybe 30 minutes of admittingly enjoyable kaiju action with and hour and a half of cringe worthy cliches.
“ The first movie in 2014 was a reasonably entertaining remake, and return for the franchise, ignoring the 1998 Roland Emmerich attempt of course, it was also the first in the MonsterVerse series, followed by Kong: Skull Island, I was expecting pretty much the same thing all over again, directed by Michael Dougherty (Krampus).
“ Boring movie .
“This movie is a waste of time.
“ Thomas Middleditch was there doing usual Thomas Middleditch stuffs and Kyle Chandler seemed to be talking to a wall at one scene and his character felt like a "know-it-all" snob and was unbearable for the most part.
“ So bored of watching CG monsters hit each other for 2 hours.
“90% unwatchable human characters in unwatchable human drama, 10% awesome monster action.
“ Then, there was this cliche-filled japanese guy that had some kind of a weird addiction to godzilla or something, then he decided to sacrifice his life witout so much as a minute to think about it just to.. touch godzilla before death, i guess.
“ The Final Wars set leak photos had us all super excited, but then the weird Matrix stuff in the film was weird and unexpected.
“ The too quick reveal of the other titans, both in film and the early trailers, completely cheapens their value to the story, and the total lack of plot and character development sinks what could have otherwise been a romp towards an increasingly entertaining series with many more iterations to follow.
“Apparently people complained about the reboot's lack of action because this movie is action packed, the first action scene begins around the ten minute mark.
“ I fell asleep....
“ The visuals were stunning and the fights were great.
“ Though I do have to complain about the overall bland music.
“ Most of this movie was long drawn out scenes that I was bored to death by and give little insight to anything, throwing 'science jargon' that make littles sense and is hardly explained rather than showing us more of Godzilla.
“ If you think you know what this film is about and want to see if it is anything but predictable-stay home.
“ It certainly understands what makes Godzilla movies entertaining and there was definitely a lot of passion put into this project.
“ It does do something semi-interesting with a few of its human characters, which is manifested in a pseudo-twist that goes some way in making the piece more engaging.
“ The characters, at least when it comes to the main characters, while not the most complex, are still compelling in their own right; they serve the plot in a meaningful way and they all have understandable motivations for doing what they do.
“ Having enjoyed the 2014 start to this franchise, I had some trepidation after reading a few "ho-hum" reviews of this Godzilla.
“ Most of the movie was extremely boring and badly written dialog.
“ The human narrative isn't anything original, but I really enjoyed it.
“ I liked the film, but the mythology was growing tiresome towards the end.
“Ultimately, "King of the Monsters" is fun to watch but the human element feels boring and becomes a nuisance.
“ My ears were assaulted with breathtaking roars, destructive carnage and McCreary's often splendid score.
“ It seems like both the monsters and planes either could teleport or fly fast as hell.. probably one of the worst movies I've seen.
“ Action packed with great sound effects and cgi.
“ All of the human characters are extremely underdeveloped, and even though the monsters may look interesting, they are just uninteresting as characters.
“ On top of that the film is incredibly boring, so that makes it completely unwatchable.
“If you want monster fights and dull characters you got it in GODZILLA KING OF THE MONSTERS
“ Save your money and your time, jog Borezilla right on!
“ But other things are so ordinary and boring.
“ Sher's cinematography is pushed into the forefront and realising some absolute stunning shots.
“ I saw this movie in 3d and enjoyed it very much.
“ King of the Monsters May suffer from a meandering plot line but being that it's filled with interesting ideas, fun action, breathtaking visuals, and classic homages to the originals, any Godzilla fan will be adequately satisfied.
“ Highly enjoyable monster flick .
“ The movie is a 2hr and 13min movie and I was just ready to walk out of the theater.
“ The story is crowded with a bunch of stereotype characters but at least colorful cast added layers and depth to them and made a bit more enjoyable.
“ Wow, stunning unlike any other movie I've seen, that last battle just wow, the biggest and best fight I've ever seen in cinema.
“ I was literally bored in the middle of the movie.
“ Build the monster personas up with more screen time, make the various monsters smart arses, sociopaths, courageous, loyal, comical, quirky, etc, and you'll have a much more engaging and new monsterverse.
“ Dark, boring and generally predictable...
“Well made and worth watching again!
“ The characters are already boring and bland.
“ First of all, I found the new characters unforgivably bland and even generic.
“ The sequence centering on Rodan is also such an intense one that will leave one on the edge of their seat.
“ The ending was stretched to the point that it was unbearable.
“ The acting was pretty good and for a monster movie the plot was enjoyable i thought.
“ One of the most boring films ive ever seen.
“ I found it very disappointing, it was the first movie I fell asleep in the cinema with.
“ This is particularly when it focuses more on pointless character explaining the plot rather than exploring how humanity deals with the arrival of multiple Titans.
“ Boring and noisy .
“ The only people we saw were the boring scientists inside the submarine, and boy was that daunting.
“ It felt as if a production company hired the best cgi studios in the world and they delivered a stunning result and when it came to writing the script, they probably used the first draft that they ever made, it's honestly that bad.
“ Massive monsters fighting for dominance, large scale destruction, angsty family drama and it this still managed to be boring.
“ The cast is quite solid as well: Kyle Chandler makes for an engaging human hero, Vera Farmiga likewise does well as a conflicted scientist who has given up on the human race, and Millie Bobbi Brown elicits sympathy as the daughter caught between these two, plus there are sturdy contributions from Ken Watanabe, Ziyi Zhang, Bradley Whitford (pretty amusing as the token wisecracking comic relief guy), Sally Hawkins, Charles Dance (spot-on ruthless as the eco-terrorist human villain), Thomas Middleditch, Aisha Hinds, and O'Shea Jackson Jr. Popping up in nifty bits are David Strathairn, Joe Morton, and CCH Pounder.
“ Slow and hokey .
“Some flaws such as it could've been a little short and sometimes the human characters bore you...
“ Very boring movie.
“ A movie for fans of the Fantastic, the Mind Boggling & the Insane.
“ Worst movie !
“ Everyone in the film are really dull, even Millie Bobby Brown, who does her usual shtick of have a mental breakdown.
“ That said, Godzilla: King of the Monsters is an explosive surge of thrilling monster action.
“ That's what I want to feel when watching a kaiju film, the deep impact and sudden rush of adrenaline whenever these beasts fight each other.
“ Not just for a Godzilla film, but for an environmentalist film in general, especially one that takes itself so seriously with its endless pretentious species about man and nature and balance and other things Dougherty doesn't understand.
“ Save your money!
“ This film has some impressive action scenes while maintaining an entertaining story line.
“ After the first hour I got bored.
“ The movie has the gigantic titans battling it out sure, but it seems to be more interested in cutting back to the boring and completely hollow human characters almost every time things get exciting.
“ Story was a little dull but had me on the edge of my seat and in awee the whole time.
“ Instead we receive another dumb quip from those same uninteresting, worthless characters, where in response to someone that says "Thank God he's on our side", they reply "For now...
“ Now, what may be entertaining to some, may bore another viewer to tears.
“ Def worth watching a second time!
“Motivations for the character's actions are often confusing.
“ This movie was far too long and could've been done as a 30 minute TV special.
“ Sooooooooooooooo boring!!!.
“ I did, to be honest, leave the theater with a "Aw was that it?
“ Dance is wasted and really only Whitfield is worth watching.
“ These characters were a lot more enjoyable and relatable to watch versus Godzilla (2014).
“ I kinda wanted to leave the cinema 25min in .
“ Cut to another trite guy with trite story of separated from threatened family, had become alcoholic, now angry at missing family members.
“I'm not a massive Godzilla fan but I've seen reviews on this website from people who eat, breathe and sleep Godzilla, and they really enjoyed it so ignore the extremely unfair 40% Rotten Tomatoes score and pay attention to the 84% audience score and good reviews on IMDb.
“ The human stuff honestly just bored me can't really explain why either because the actors were doing there best.
“ Big action fun with a sprinkling of science and plenty of plot holes but still enjoyable.
“ Godzilla KM 2019 is an incredibly entertaining scream.
“ I'm a big fan of 2014's Godzilla, i liked the slow burning approach and the final act delivered a satisfaying monster battle along with of the best visual effects i've seen in a movie.
“ Seriously" what a waste of time.
“Ignore the nay-sayers, KotM is a hugely enjoyable way to spend 2.5hrs. Yes, the human element will always feel a tad contrived and does leave room for improvement.
“ The visuals are stunning and will keep you on the edge of your seat.
“ The human storyline is both meh and predictable at far too many points.
“ But then it gradually descends into absolute nonsense in terms of plot and vapid propaganda very subtly aimed at Chinese audiences to inflate their ego (because China is still a lucrative market for Hollywood).
“ Save your money on this version, because the ONLY aspect of this movie worth seeing, are the old-school monsters.
“Pacing was great, the story was well thought-out and the score, sound, and visual effects were stunning!
“missiles that destroy all oxygen in a 2km radius probably should have destroyed water and clouds too..the whole government wants to shut down monarch thing was a complete waste of time as it was largely ignored...
“ I fell asleep....
“ However the family banter was boring and sort of wish Godzilla would just step on them.
“ Very enjoyable to watch.
“ I got bored within 30min of the long "build up" and dialogues.
“ Whereas the first felt more plodding and mysterious in tone this is just all out monster mayhem right from the start.
“ I am very glad that i spent my 2 hours in such exciting way.
“ The acting was also weak, and the dialogue was trite and cliche'd.
“ So, I was constantly trying to decide what shall I do: keep on sleeping or just leave the theater.
“ Out of the six of us 0 thought this movie was worth watching.
“It isn't just the fact that Godzilla 2 has too many characters, few of them truly gripping, that make me bored with them.
“ Seriously a waste of time!!
“ The opening of the film is rather boring, a jumbled mess of convoluted introductions, explanations about what is going on and the human focus that will lead to all the mess.
“ The 2014 reboot to me was pretty dull.
“ The human story is perfectly engaging and the actors are good.
“ Not giving it a 1 or 2 because the CGI was fairly entertaining.
“ Total snooze fest.
“ So many of the action sequences were confusing.
“ Save your money and a huge disappointment, go see any other movie.
“ There were times that I was just getting bored by the human characters, and their dialogue had, like, SO much cheese.
“ It made me feel bad for the cast, they are legitimately trying to do what they can with the material but every time they went back to the human characters, I wanted to press the X button to get through the boring cut scene.
“ It seems like there is a Hollywood mindset that if you show less of the monsters and hide them in dark sequences, they will somehow be more believable to the audience (Much like getting rid of the bright colors and making superhero costumes darker and more drab).
“ I think the filmn is boring.
“The trailers for this movie were very good, intriguing, fun and had me excited for this one.
“ Acting was great, storyline was interesting enough, and the monster action was definitely entertaining!
“ Worst movie ever made .
“ Within in minutes of start some trite monster threatens some trite science office.
“ The human plot was really entertaining, and epic, and emotional as well.
“ Worst movie .
“ While I looked it more than "Godzilla 2014", it has become one of the most predictable films I've seen in a long time and I enjoyed "Kong: Skull Island" and "King Kong vs Godzilla 1962" MUCH more.
“ The focus should be on the monsters and while there is more screen time devoted to them in this sequel, there is still way too much time spent following dull human characters.
“ In the climactic battle at the end, the camera is focused on the family more often that I liked, but the battles are all still engrossing and satisfying.
“ I fell asleep twice.
“ There are a lot of action sequences in the movie among the beasts and they are epic, visually stunning, and fun to watch.
“ It focuses heavily on the monster fights and everything to do with the monsters from which it hugely benefits, and while the CGI can look a little rough in some shots and camera angles, I can safely say that the monster design is absolutely stunning, especially for Mothra, who I really whish existed.
“ Honestly, despite the poor and boring story, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, is provided with an atmosphere and impressive moments.
“ But the way the action scenes happen, it just feels kind of bland.
“ The reason i called this movie a "popcorn movie" is because while it is extremely enjoyable (especially if you're a Godzilla fan), it's not really all that special and there's not a whole lot of new things you haven't seen before.
“There's clearly merit in this idea, with Godzilla living a long and fruitful life as one of the world's most recognizable properties (particularly in its home country of Japan), even if so far the modern reimagining's haven' t exactly nailed the giant lizard down, with Roland Emmerich's late 90's outing ridiculed by many (even if it was good dumb fun) and 2014's Godzilla being accused of being far too boring for its own good.
“ It is exciting, it is beautiful, tragic, grand, an emotional rollercoaster from start to finish.
“ It was action-packed, intense, thrilling, emotional, beautiful and incredible.
“ As I mentioned, most of the fights are difficult to see and they're also quite repetitive - most of them end with some sort of 'last minute save'.
“ The rest of the story was carried on by his bland as sand kid.
“ I left the theater with nothing less than the feeling of neutral.
“This movie was a *COMPLETE* waste of time, even for a Godzilla fan such as myself.
“ For Gods sake dont waste your money over these kind of movies.
“ Considering going back to the movies to watch it again since I enjoyed it greatly.
“ The Visuals in this movie are absolutely stunning.
“ Incredibly expensive movie, cool graphic special effects, talented actors and so boring and bad script.
“ Absolutely no tension or peril, fell asleep towards the end.
“ A decently entertaining movie with more buildup to the future showdown with Kong rather than making a good standalone film.
“ Having lighter colors in the backdrop during the daytime would make the colors from the monsters' effects seem more dull and less noticeable.
“ Even the monster action is so boring it gets almost numbing, given that much of it becomes increasingly pointless by the film's end.
“ Overall, after coming out of the theater , I had to take two cups of tea to get rid of a storming headache attained from all the pointless absurdity that had transpired onscreen.
“ They're bland, cliché, and make stupid decisions.
“Godzilla king of monsters is an action packed masterpiece.
“ It is big, loud, and has plenty of action set pieces to keep you on the edge of your seat.
“ Sure, some of it is flawed, but most of the time I find myself enjoyed and truest impressed by its effects and stunning visuals.
“ The effects were absolutely breathtaking for the most part.
“ This is the first movie i actually thought of breaking my rule and not wait till the end, leave the theater at the break(i wish we did).
“ At the top of my list for Worst Movie Ever.
“ if you thought Godzilla 2014 was boring and didn't have enough monster action, and then you're in luck: this movie has memorable, engaging characters and non-Stop monster destruction and fighting.
“ Visually it's stunning and the story is highly enjoyable.
“ The battles are visual intense and serves the story well.
“ How come it has been rated only 6.9? Fantastic & extremely exciting throughout the movie.
“ 3) If you're a pretentious snob who only likes slow-burn foreign, subtitled films, well, I think you can fill in the rest of what I was going to write.
“ Way too long.
“ You don't care about any of the characters or dramatic stakes of the narrative by the long drawn out conclusion of the film as nothing here feels natural, it all feels like cliché melodramatic nonsense.
“ Surprisingly boring for a film about monsters fighting.
“For the newbies to these fascinating films, it is crucial to understand their origin.
“ Monsters looked amazing and quite realistic, animation was great, the visual effects were stunning, sound design even though at some point it became a bit repetitive and tiresome because of the non stop ( and some times no reason) explosions it was pretty spot on.
“The human characters with the exception of Tanaka are possibly the most dull I've ever experienced on film.
“ A passably entertaining popcorn movie with great monster special effects and good use of colour and music to really emphasize the scale and impact of the creatures.
“ I am tempted to comment on the riveting performance, nuanced acting, superb facial expression and body language etc. etc. of our protagonist Godzilla.
“ Avoid this dismal, boring, cheaply scripted and shot piece of rubbish.
“ Spectacular Kaiju action dragged down by stupid human drama .
“ Lack of a real story is a fatal mistake, yet the visual effect is breathtaking.
“By the look of the trailers this film seemed to rectify that and just have as entertaining a film as possible, as a monster v monster film should be.
“ It was a waste of time.
“ Exciting Monster Movie.
“ A spectacle in its purest form, it satisfies the hunger for massive kaiju smackdowns while also building an elaborate narrative to justify both their existence and their intense rivalries.
“ Most of the decisions made are irrational and borderline stupid, the main conflict of the protagonists is just laughable or absolutely insane,depending how much you are going to think about it, the information delivered comes in the most cliched and uninspiring ways with exposition being all over the place...
“ The plot is incredibly predictable and the movie played it safe for the most part.
“ It's really worth watching.
“The fact that I fell asleep says all you need to know, wait for the DVD.
“ Don't waste your money or time.
“ From what everyone was saying I got the impression that there are a lot of great monster action scenes, but the human side of things is just boring and horrible written.
“Definitely, one of the best action packed films.
“ I wanted to leave after the first quarter.
“ They killed off the best character before even the halfway point, and we're left with a boring block of wood known as Aaron Taylor Johnson for the rest of it.
“ Save your money, wait until you can stream at home and can turn it off ;)
“ With lots of wasted talents and a load of monster movie cliches this is an unbearable watch.
“ Good thing I am a real monster lover, else I would have walked out.
“The 2014 Godzilla movie suffered because the movie focused on a bland human and his bland family instead of, you know: the titanic beasts walking the Earth.
“ Would rather be home doing something more exciting (like laundry), than enduring this gargantuan waste of time.
“Despite a chaotic story, "King of the Monsters" is still, in fact, an enjoyable film.
“ It was just so enjoyable from start to finish, the intro to each titan was chilling, and they were amazingly detailed to the eyes.
“Yes, the action and suspense in them are great, the concepts of the storyline are genuinely interesting and I would say sufficiently gripping to keep you focused on the movie, and personally I think the special effects and grandeur are fantastic, it really adds spectacle to what should be truly grand creatures and movie sequences.
“In what universe is a Godzilla film boring, especially one with 5 different monsters in it?
“ The CGI in this movie was great, the brilliant soundtrack, completely stunning.
“ The repetitive mention of King Kong makes the upcoming sequel seem further away as he fails a newly-shot appearance.
“ Week story, predictable dialogue, horrible acting and underwhelming special effects.
“Final Say -Despite brief snippets of the film it could've been, Godzilla: King of the Monsters is far too serious and sadly dull for its own good stopping this monster rumble in its tracks, a shame for all and a potential road-blocker for the franchise moving forward.
“ Any Kaiju sprawl is incredible - visually stunning, beautiful soundtrack and cinematography, top tier VFX, in-depth design.
“ Almost all the characters are stupid and rush, and the monsters duel is very boring.
“As a lifelong Godzilla fan I can't say I was disappointed since it was so satisfying to see these monsters come to life and feel like real, believable characters but just wished the movie they were in was more focused and shorter to fully appreciate the spectacle, creatures and the engaging themes it wants to tell.
“ I really don't care about them, all I care is about monsters and I had enjoyed it by far the most among all Godzilla movies.
“ Most of the plot from the 30-minute mark is simply pointless and does not even make remotely logical sense within the greater narrative given such a plot hole.
“ It was one one of those movies when you can fall asleep for 20 minutes, and when the noise wakes you up you feel you haven't actually missed anything.
“ Not great, but still really enjoyable.
“ Please save your money and see something else.
“ This was poorly paced and completely predictable.
“Anyways, I really enjoyed it and had a good time!
“ The extraordinary amount of care in this score is absolutely haunting, and by far the best part of the movieIt makes it all the more confusing that the film doesn't shut up.
“ Pretty boring until the monsters show up.
“ What I wanted to see was awe inspiring creatures do battle and at that it succeeds, albeit imperfectly.
“ We have a lot of big stars that we've seen in better movies, but their either too bland or underdeveloped.
“ Not a decent cast (the consistent Vera Farmiga, up-and-coming Millie Bobbie Brown, and one of my favorite actors - Kyle Chandler), not a monster budget, or a juicy concept can save this one from the sheer boredom and predictable plot points that hampers it.
“ Even people who liked to movie were starting to get a bit bored towards the end.
“ The fights were awesome and the music put into the movie makes it feel exciting and tense.
“ The plot line and the ending was predictable.
“ This one was by no means perfect, but it was dramatic and intense and had scenes that made me smile, frown, jump a little in my seat, and leave me begging to see more.
“ i have Walked out with a smile on my face after watching this movie then to 2014 Godzilla witch made say could of been better.
“ Cringefull and action packed.
“ A wonderful fast paced movie that slows down in appropriate spots and time length.
“ Some may get a kick from intellectually or artistically engaging with a work (which, I gotta admit, I'm one of those people), while others may just be in for the spectacle.
“ Enjoyed it a lot.
“ This movie has absolutely stunning visuals, cinematography and sound mixing.
“ Worst movie ever!.
“ It has a lot of fighting, the movie may be too fast paced for some, and some may not be a fan of Godzillas style of fighting.
“ With movies like John Wick and Rocketman playing on cinemas, I'd recommend you don't waste your time or money watching Godzilla, believe me you're not missing out on much.
“ I know that this can be a controversial speak but ,beyond of the story, in some point of the movie (Avengers Endgame) I was getting bored.
“ What little plot there is, is confusing.
“ All in all, it ends up feeling a bit wonky and disjointed, and at times mildly confusing.
“ Monsters great, people and drama boring .
“Dont know how i managed to stay awake especially with the loud noises.
“ Though the daughter is compellingly played by Millie Bobby Brown, her parents are cliche caricatures of real people, motivated in the most asinine way by their emotions about their dead son.
“The monster action is terrific, but the movie often cuts away to show the perspective of the completely uninteresting human characters.
“ Dougherty has created a considerably more apocalyptic tone this time around, but it is also a much more fun and enjoyable romp.
“I enjoyed it though and it was well worth the time to see it.
“ Some characters are compelling and have decent dynamics, the visual effects are great and there's a pretty fantastic scene set to the original Toho tune.
“ I say it one more time: realism is good, but when it renders a movie unwatchable, it defeats the purpose, especially in a popcorn movie such as this.
“ SUCH A COLOSSAL WASTE OF TIME.
“Spoiler: The most entertaining parts are when they go to Eleven.
“ Without exaggeration, some scenes are breathtaking and for the first time in this type of infrastructure, I am not disappointed.
“ The rest were bland.
“ I could barely see Mothra, couldn't see Godzilla nor the 3-headed monster he was fighting in dark Antartida at night, just before I left the theater.
“ Trite ending.
“ It was so boring that an actual guy was snoring.
“ We got to see monsters emerging with epic soundtracks and epic fights , i was high on adrenaline the whole time , truly a great monster movie
“ no story .. no acting ...
“ What that made for was a dull film.
“ The action is intense and majestic and despite the clumsy plot, it's wildly entertaining.
“ I know the story isn't the main point in Godzilla, but the story in this movie is terrible, boring, and I feel like they focused on it a little too much.
“ Good Monsters/Boring Humans .
“ There's tons of other problems, like how physics is ignored or that the story makes no sense, but the noise and confusion will easily drown those concerns out.
“Bottom Line: "Godzilla: King of Monsters" is a boring and occasionally offensively bad interpretation of a story that has been done and redone endlessly for over a half century.
“ BORED .
“ GODZILLA - VISUALLY STUNNING AND WITH A MESSAGE OF HOPE .
“ It was worth the price and very entertaining.
“ Awful boring movie and millie bobby brown sucks as usual
“ There is no plot.
“ The kaiju action was absolutely entertaining.
“ After about 45 minutes of being clobbered by boring, predictable CGI and preachy enviro-lecturing, I walked-out on this stinker.
“ No plot, horrible acting, ridiculous dialogue, terrible direction, bad editing, amateurish writing, good CGI.
“Overall this is a very enjoyable monster flick.
“Well, let me humor the idea that balance cannot exist and explain it thusly: the problem with the first movie is that the most prominent characters were somewhat uninteresting and didn't justify the lack of Godzilla screentime, whereas this movie doesn't give us enough time to get to know anyone or understand why we should be invested when the action comes.
“ The first chapter in the Monsterverse, no matter how ludicrous its plot, managed to retain a much more realistic and genuinely engaging aesthetic and tone, while King of the Monsters scrapped any facade of realism and dialed the crazy action-packed monster fighting up to an 11.
“It's beautifully shot, a BIT on the dark side (and those who complained that the film was too dark MAY have the 3D to blame for that), and the colour palette is a tiny bit too restricted for my taste, but well worth watching anyways, and eventually a definite addition to my Bluray collection.
“ A good action packed sequel .
“ Sure, there are significant problems (all the best shots are in the trailer, the plot is beyond laughable, the characters are so thinly sketched as to make those in the first film feel Shakespearean, clichés abound, the talented cast is wasted), but all things considered, I enjoyed it, as it accomplished exactly what it set out to accomplish.
“ Within the first ten minutes, I was so blown away by the acting, writing, and CGI that I had I to get up out of my seat, get my money back, and leave the theater.
“ So when they threw in what they threw in (because I'm not telling), I was lulled into a few catnaps.
“ Mild amusement will give way to boredom, and then to disbelief and mockery.
“ Breathtaking special effects with amazing acting really brings the emotion to the plot so amazed this is how Godzilla is dreamed of what we have been waiting for along time .
“Jump scares and "unexpected turns" that you expect from 5 minutes....
“ Action packed epic unlike anything seen before .
“ This family drama stuff is boring and does not belong in a Godzilla movie.
“ The dialogue itself lacks passion and emotion- it is a blend of one-liners that didn't make the final cut from a 1980's Schwarzenegger movie, overused back-and-fourths that you have seen a hundred times before, and empty conversations that lack both substance and direction.
“This is on a par with the last couple of Transformer films for being so stupid and banal.
“ Even my wife that I dragged to see the movie with liked the movie and was wanting to know more when it finished!
“The CGI and the monster's battles are very enjoyable to watch.
“ Don't waste your time watching this in my opinion.
“ Still, it's appreciated and goes a long way in making the second act more engaging than it otherwise would have been.
“ But it's a filler that has non stop action and is as exciting as it is visually stunning.
“ The monster fights and battle scenes are actually exciting though.
“ Horrible acting, boring movie, I could have left and been fine.
“ If you like horrendously stupid plots, lots of shaky cam, bad attempts at humor and pointlessly mandatory family drama to round out an otherwise uninteresting story, then you're gonna LOVE Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
“ I genuinely enjoyed it.
“ The Bad Storyline - unimaginative, lame, dull, no - logic Annoying kid carachter and also that family line backstory Carachter motivation?
“ Plotless Drivel .
“ Contrived piece of ****.
“ To be fair, the human narrative isn't all that bad, in fact I found it more engaging than the 2014 film's.
“ Intense, Life Like .
“ I mean it was literally a snooze fest.
“ Although it seems to have potential, especially judging by the sheer number of enormous creatures depicted, it manages to be simply dull and boring.
“ Last half hour of the movie is boring af.
“ Stunning .
“ I could not believe how boring, fundamentally broken and bland this 2 hour wet fart was.
“ An explosive surge of thrilling monster action...
“ Trite battle.
“ This movie though was spectacular and breathtaking at some scenarios the cgi graphics everything synced well.
“ a waste of time and money.
“ Even the few monster battles felt unepic for the most part, and dragged on.
“ If you love Godzilla and just want some decent Kaiju action you'll get it, but you have to sit through some dull human drama to get there.
“ It was beautiful and thrilling .
“ It has no plot, no 3D effects, the characters come and go, the monsters come and go, nobody knows what's going on.
“ The battle scenes between the monsters are absolutely riveting, with director Michael Dougherty gleefully throwing everything at the audience except the kitchen sink, and some of the movie's shots are so well staged that they could be paintings (Mothra's first ascension and Ghidorah's electrical take-over in particular).
“ While Mothra is kind of resorted to being a deux-machina and would wish to have more screen time, her ethereal-like presence creates breathtaking imaginary making her the most visually stunning of the monsters.
“ If goji 2014's slow and deliberate approach to their kaiju wasn't satisfying enough, then i assure you, KOTM doesn't hold backWhile I personally felt like godzilla 2014 focused a bit too much on the pretty bland main character, KOTM finds an equal ground between monster action and human drama.
“ Only reason I didn't walk out of the cinema was because I fell asleep.
“ And sure, even though I thought the slow buildup of the 2014 "Godzilla" was really effective, I'll be damned if I wasn't excited for 2 hours of CGI monster fun.
“ Fascinating CG, sound, and number of monsters .
“ 'Kong: Skull Island' delivered enjoyable results, which ultimately left this third instalment needing to decimate the competition.
“ But you're left just twiddling your thumbs for too long waiting for the monsters to come back on screen as they are far more entertaining to watch.
“SAVE YOUR MONEY...
“ Fantastic, sublime, stunning, thrilling: a masterpiece.
“But overall an enjoyable film.
“ This is literally one of the top worst movies I have watched in my life.
“Typical sign of bad movie: Bad lighting in teals and oranges and weighed down with trite P.
“ The worst movie I've ever seen in my life .
“ I dont fall asleep during movies, I love movies.
“ This is a very entertaining action movie, with absolutely breathtaking visual effects.
“ It also takes too long to get going and is too long overall.
“ A fun, action packed, heartfelt homage to the Showa era of Godzilla.
“ It's a Underrated and Very good action packed MONSTER movie.
“ Trite deaths everywhere as trite bad guy appears.
“This movie lacks any of the fun from the more cheesy Japanese entries and makes only passing attempts at using kaiju as an allegory for nature's response to human hubris in favor of another predictable broken man's redemption story.
“ Lilith knows it wouldn't be a Dougherty film without confused, pretentious messaging and gross misunderstanding of themes.
“ Worst Movie ever .
“ The story is dull and lacks character development.
“ It gets a FIVE because i fell asleep at 1:15 .
“ The story then takes some predictable twists and turns.
“ While the characters may not be the best written, they are at least animated and entertaining to watch, which makes this movie, which 132 minutes long, feel like a short thrill ride.
“ Super entertaining, if you know what to expect.
“ The visuals are stunning and the score from Bear McCreary is impressive.
“Overall, this movie is an awesome movie for Godzilla fans, monster fans and the general audience as well, but if you want to see a movie for a really good story with a lot interesting characters and intriguing dialogue, then maybe give it a pass.
“ The fights are again dull.
“ It was slow, and we never really encountered him in his entirety until the climax, preferring instead to offer glimpses through the characters that come near his presence.
“Anytime the humans are on screen its dull, incomprehensible and most unforgiving of all, its beyond boring.
“ The character are pretty bland.
“ Instead was rather boring at times and goofy at others, making it lose that uniqueness that I felt the original movie did in comparison to other movies of a similar genre.
“ Went to the theater last night, was even in the extended screens (3 screens surrounding you) and managed to fall asleep.
“So, when it comes down to it, GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS is a great film that's highly enjoyable and loads of fun.
“characters motivations are just confusing as well!!
“ Aside from loud, entertaining monster battles, this sequel will be forgotten.
“ A little clunky sometimes, but enjoyable all the same.
“ It's action packed with twists, turns, AMAZING cgi, and all the classic Godzilla fan service you can handle!
“ He shows up more often and is accompanied by some truly stunning monsters.
“ Everything but the CGI was a snore fest.
“Now for my critiques: The story IS lacking and a little disjointed.
“Are the characters boring?
“ But if you're just a fan of great, action packed, thrilling blockbuster movies, with a great cast and great Monsters?
“ But when you see the motive of your own is truly incompetent and hard to follow.
“ The visuals are stunning and the story line is great!
“Dialogue is cringeworthy, with predictable heartfelt speeches and clumsy ecological theories.
“ This film managed to make Charles Dance dull, that in itself is impressive.
“ Want to know if you're getting some bland and basic CGI in a movie?
“ cast are great, audience can really felt all casts emotion (scary, confusion, threaten) on every plot growing time by time, CGI are great with very less flaw, dramatic situation are greatly established on every scene, all monsters design are quite satisfying (not so difference with Toho's old movie with modern touch), how they bring up every monsters are cool (the best one is where mothra showing up near monarch base from a cloudly sky with her bright wings), SOUND EFFECTS are the greatest positive point on this movie, dramatic & realistic battle scene was well arranged (i still able to felt that all kaijus on the movie are big & weight while they punch down each other, human & citiee infrastructures are the biggest victim of this movie's gigantic creature movement), sci-fi touch alongside with it are quite make sense (can well accepted by the audience) which made plot are getting more exciting, the only one flaw on this movie are just on its 'a bit' weak narration (just like all of kaiju's mashup are caused by Dr. Emma's stupid idealism).
“What many critics don't get is that for the general public, a movie - or any story for that matter - is supposed to be, first and foremost, entertaining.
“ Really really REALLY enjoyed it.
“ Action packed extravaganza of monsters and destruction .
“ Well worth the watch and really looking forward to Godzilla vs Kong after this.
“ The filmmakers seem intent on making Godzilla and co. behave like real animals, so the fights are boring as a result.
“ Jar Jar Binks Dialog Returns - Chaotic, Incomprehensible Action - Save Your Money .
“ Like it's predecessor, this version of Godzilla suffers from lack of story and engaging chatacters.
“ Director/co-writer Michael Dougherty totally hits it out of the ballpark with this simply spectacular edition to the long running Godzilla series: Not only does Dougherty keep the engrossing and exciting story hurtling along at a breathless brisk pace despite the lengthy two hour-plus running time, but he also stages the thrilling and fantastic monster fights with rip-roaring gusto, maintains a refreshingly serious tone throughout, and keeps the human drama stuff on an even keel from start to finish.
“ But I enjoyed it.
“Kudos to the VFX team for putting together such stunning creatures....
“ Horrible waste of time.
“This Godzilla, 2019, was too cliche and too much Hollywood cliche corny dialogue we've heard from other movies a million times.
“A very entertaining film with great monster battles and an evolving human story.
“ Furthermore, the established lore is expanded upon to fascinating areas such as the titans' history with man and offers room for greater exploration.
“ Since there's many fascinating monsters appeared there, beside the hero itself.
“ but it's entertaining,,, just bring the Ultraman then it will be complete hahahaha
“So, to sum things up: The movie is a lot of fun, very fast-paced and action packed.
“ We wanted to share their adventures and feel their fear, awe, and adrenaline.
“ Putting together such a predictable plot with such boring and unsympathetic characters can't lead to something good I'm afraid.
“ The insipid story, weak script, and bland acting fatally undercut both the impressive CGI and the homages to earlier films (iconic and otherwise).
“ The film's over two hours long and it sure dragged when the humans were on the screen towards the end.
“ He is boring, and whispers nearly every line of dialogue.
“The visuals were absolutely stunning.
“This is a fun film, a huge, loud, exciting film.
“ These ones are a waste of time that you will NEVER EVER get back.
“ The special effects are truly incredible and Lawrence Sher's striking widescreen cinematography provides a wondrous wealth of breathtaking visuals.
“ I got up and used the restroom to stretch my leg's and stay awake.
“ Godzilla: King of the Monsters attempts to crush its tedious plot with gorgeous visualised kaiju battles.
“ What monster movie or Godzilla movie has compelling characters?
“ There's a lot more action and different monsters which was very entertaining.
“ Very enjoyable sequel to the 2014 movie which feels like it fits well into the Godzilla universe.
“ The movie juggled unevenly between intense action scenes and character drama, at times causing unintentional laughs.
“ For any fan it is perfect and a very enjoyable film to watch.
“ I was hoping for more in the characters because I honestly found the human drama in 2014's Godzilla pretty engaging.
“ Save your money and 2 hours.
“ Boring and dull .
“ The dialogue is predictable and terribly acted.
“ This is pure arcade fighting game for those who want to raise up their adrenaline.
“ It has a wonderful mix of human character development and conflict to accompany the knock down drag out monster mayhem!
“ The plot is downright embarrassing, the characters are insanely boring and your suspension of disbelief is tested to its limits.
“ For it to carry on the continuity from both films, give us some thrilling action, and with the cast (especially Millie Bobby Brown, with this being her first major flick) doing a really good job, I'd give this a solid 9/10.
“ I was so bored.
“ In fact, why they thought that a cliche storyline would just suffice on the sidelines of monster battles in beyond me.
“ Here are some negative comments: The human plot story was predictable.
“ While 2014 attempted to woo us with a slow-burn of Kaiju drama, it simply lacked what we wanted - fighting monsters - and instead tethered us to uninteresting human characters.
“ The shivering dread of boredom is too overwhelming.
“ I vaguely remembered what the first Godzilla (2014) movie was about but I can recall that I enjoyed it pretty much.
“ However, as popcorn flicks they are reasonably entertaining.
“ Worst movie of the year so far...
“ Beware Adults with small children BTW as with most 12a's now there is use of pointless profanity to try and make the film more edgy, the S word is used frequently and the F word is dropped once or twice....
“ If you're looking for gigantic monsters fighting, you'll have a fun and enjoyable movie experience.
“ but it's much more entertaining than 2014.
“ An unfortunately dull monster mash-up .
“ That's how breathtaking this movie actually is.
“ The graphics/monsters are over elaborate and frankly uninspiring.
“ Someone decides to wake monsters up to kill off the population to save the Earth - how stupid - how unoriginal - how uninspiring.
“ Dull, dull, dull .
“ nonetheless, worth watching, beasts are amazing
“ I thought this was too noisy with bad CGI and terrible cliché characters.
“ Terrible movie, do not watch, it IS A WASTE OF TIME.
“ Completely entertaining and fast paced.. The CGI and sound effects are just mind blowing.
“ What a worst movie, i dont know what has happened to you guys?
“ There is scene after scene of military members sitting in a room, talking about God knows what, and it's so God damn boring.
“ Trite plans follow, trite action.
“ I fell asleep repeatedly in this movie because of how much I didn't care about the human characters.
“However, the film does suffer from the same kind of mundane "broken family" storyline that plagued Jurassic World.
“This is a movie from the writer/director who co-wrote X-Men 2, arguably one of the better superhero movies ever made, so how he could deliver such a confusing mess with GKotM is a question that will hopefully be answered in the coming years (I place my bet on studio interference).
“Still, I would never want to make people believe this is a bad movie, it's not, I really enjoyed it a lot and am looking forward to the next instalment.
“ Especially when there are monsters having an epic battle in the background and instead we're forced to spend our time with these bland personalities we don't actually care about.
“ The Action - While I had a lot of issues with the action yes, it was, even if to a lesser extent than the first, still the most entertaining aspect naturally.
“ This is probably the worst movie I've seen so far this year.
“ The CGI is absolutely stunning too.
“ Solid monster movie and worth watching.
“ It's offending how cheap and contrived it is...
“ You should see this on the biggest screen possible to enhance your experience as I've said the Monsters are breathtaking and are definitely an achievement in filmmaking.
“ Finally, that child actor really started giving a bad performance towards the third act, although by that time, the plot had immersed into maximum cringe.
“ Defiantly worth watching an amazing Godzilla movie it made 8yr old me come out in the theater I'm so happy there making these movies took my 5yr old and made him a Godzilla fan!!!!
“ It feels just like a Godzilla movie and felt like a very Japanese movie, but not one of the great ones, more like the more action entertaining ones.
“ And, of course, there's the cover of Blue Oyster Cult's "Godzilla," that features Serj Tankian from System of a Down doing the lyrical work, which is such an adrenaline-pumping track.
“ It's a boring AF flick with no substance whatsoever!
“ It was a giant snooze fest.
“ Edwards' "Godzilla" rebooted the American "Godzilla" franchise after "Stargate" director Roland Emmerich gave us his own entertaining epic "Godzilla" (1998), starring Matthew Broderick.
“ However, I will have to take away a point for the story, while I actually thought it was well executed, it is where the movie tends to have its slower paced portions and still feels secondary compared to the larger narrative of "let's get Godzilla to earn the King of the Monsters title.
“I almost walked out it was getting so unrealistic and stupid toward the end..Too bad you can't give 1/2 a star.
“Despite the bad writing, the monster scenes were enjoyable and was what I was looking for from this movie, which is why my score is higher than it otherwise would have been.
“ The uneven pace and predictable dialogues didn't help either.
“ Total waste of money!
“ I fell asleep, woke up and then went back to sleep.
“ This movie was totaly boring and annoying!
“Overall, it was worth watching , and i believe this experience should not be missed when running in theaters, it will not waste your money, and has great repetition value.
“ The characters are so dull and many of the scenes with them just feel pointless.
“ Gareth Edwards is a great director and he built up suspense and put together scenes carefully and tightly so the whole movie was a very absorbing experience - and the final appearance of Godzilla with his nasty snarling smirk at the end was immensely satisfying.
“ At an hour in I was so bored I was falling asleep in the theater!
“ Uninspiring .
“ Pretty much everytime a fight scene was about to start they would cut away to whatever boring nonsensical thing the humans were doing.
“ Pleased for others who enjoyed it, though.
“ I fell asleep and dont think I missed much.
“ Just good old fashioned monster fun..normal human cheesy storylines..but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
“ COMPLETE DISAPPOINTMENT AND WASTE OF MONEY TO WATCH THIS IN IMAX.
“ It just kinda bored me.
“ The monsters are all bland and uninteresting.
“ Pretty cliché as characters go.
“ People's behavior is absurd, with a lot of boring drama that nobody cares, in addition the actors who are supposed to be the main ones have no time on screen.
“ The fights among the monsters are breathtaking and I felt like a child again watching the old movies with Mothra and Guidorah and Godzilla!
“Like most blockbusters, the characters are boring.
“ This made for a very slow pace and very little screen time of Godzilla, aside from witnessing him from secondary sources (TV, etc.). But the slowness wasn't all for naught; it provided build-up.
“ The CGI on the characters is undeniably stunning, everyone looks fantastic.
“ Ridiculously dumb and unbelievably boring for an action movie .
“ No plot.
“ I understand that the sacrifice of a compelling story arc was to make way for action sequences, a major departure from the focus of the first film.
“ If you're not a hardcore Godzilla fan, don't waste your time .
“ Long boring dialogues which is unfortunate because the cast is a very good one.
“ Such an amazing film, it is action packed and suspensful, you will always be on the edge of your seat.
“ The characters make questionable decisions, most of which make you raise your hands in confusion.
“ As previously mentioned, Dr. Serizawa is a very compelling character.
“ Highlights are many, the Antartica Moment of King Ghidora's entrance was stunning and made me think & hope that Del Toro was watching and thinking about 'In The Mountains of Madness' again.
“ It was a lot of build up and following the humans and a little monster battle but I still thought it was engaging.
“ I wish it had been a better, more gripping story.
“ King of the Monsters doesn't tease us the monsters like its predecessor, instead opting to show them in all their glory, with some quite stunning shots thrown in to emphasise the sheer scale and power of these beasts.
“ For, unlike MCU, they are not focusing a lot on the choreography of the battle, it is still dull.
“As a casual viewer that thought the first film was enjoyable enough that I was excited to see the sequal, I was thrilled that I could leave the cinema when the film finished.
“ Towards the end though, these battles tend to get a tad bit repetitive.
“ An entertaining monster flick .
“ Don't waste your time or money.
“ no plot.
“ If you are looking for Sundance or Cannes contenders, don't waste your money.
“ " DELECTABLY UNPREDICTABLE 😃 !
“ The action scenes are fun but the second one was filmed a little closely and the third one was bland.
“ Godzilla 1 was far better and this one is too slow and stretching.
“ There was 6 of us in the movie theater and 2 fell asleep.
“ We wanted to see Godzilla kick butt instead we mostly saw a very depressed looking Vera Farmiga drooling on about boring things.
“ Painfully boring.
“This movie is great and enjoyable for the Godzilla fans and the "normies" alike.
“ This was a waste of time.
“ Godzilla: King of the Monsters was a very entertaining sequel to the 2014 Godzilla.
“ Visually stunning, plot wise horrible .
“ It was entertaining mindless monster mayhem.
“ We also get the very banal characters from the 2014 film, such as the admiral and Watanbe's generic aide, played by Sally Hawkins - and then some.
“ The humans in this movie are boring and stupid just like their dialogue.
“ But what they could've done better was with the human characters who delivered plain dialouges which were boring.
“ Not a decent movie at all, the story line is boring, the acting is factitious, CGI is overly used.
“ Intense action pretty much non-stop.
“ Exciting from beginning to end!
“ This is even assuming the set pieces are compelling on their own in the first placeThis movie hurts.
“save your money...
“How the hell did you make it boring?!
“The 1998 movie is far more entertaining.
“ What they've achieved here is just plain daft and boring making you yearn for the monster punch ups which is largely what you've come for in the first place rather than the usual eco message.
“The imagery is absolutely stunning.
“ No spoilers here, was a pretty awesome film, visual effects were on point, acting and story were pretty amazing as well 100% worth watching again
“ It deserves 8 due to the stunning work of CGI in this film, stupid and disgusting sense of humor in many scenes though.
“ The film does set up for another movie which will be exciting to see.
“ We were forced to be drowned is a boring, dull, almost comical plot involving boring characters and the creation of two radioactive creatures called MUTOs before we got to see Zilla square off against the two, which by itself was spectacular, yet wasn't able to save the film.
“ So after watching Godzilla 2014, everyones wanted more Godzilla and well they got it but in a boring way...
“ Well, I guess about the same odds as Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson had locating his crew following the knock down-drag out in "Rampage".
“ This movie was so boring and just plain awful, camera shaking, quick cuts and dark shots where you cant tell what is going on at all throughout the whole movie.
“ There is literally no storyline.
“ The script is bad, I mean cliche ridden bad; both the plot and the dialogue needed a good rewrite to create anything even vaguely satisfactory.
“ Moreover, Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan, and especially King Ghidorah all look amazingly lifelike and certainly deliver the rousing mondo destructo and go-for-the-throat thingo-to-thingo goods something fierce.
“ The fights were brutal and somewhat unpredictable.
“ It's pretty boring in places.
“ The humans in this are about as uninteresting as the ones in the previous movie.
“ Cheesier than a bag of Wotsits, awful storyline, every cliche from a Hollywood movie you can expect.
“ Awe inspiring.
“ The human characters were largely unconvincing and confusing, and did little to add emotional depth to the human side of the story.
