A little clunky sometimes, but enjoyable all the same.

I mean, I get why they're there, but a lot of the decisions that are made are stupid and pointless.

This is worst movie i ever seen in this year .

Enjoyable .

Childish fantastical story and way too long runtime and the biggest mammoth in the world ever made KotM dull.

The VFX were good and the monster fights that I came for were exciting.

It was a very well-though out and well-scripted and exciting monster movie.

It had better battle scenes among the Titans, a variety of the well known Kaijus and very good special effects, making the fights intense and the creatures as real as it gets.

This was a waste of time.

And even though some people complaint about the human factor of this movie, I actually enjoyed it...

I was surprised and amazed just how awesome and breathtaking Godzilla can be.

The realistic, slow and methodical movements of the monsters in the first movie (2014) are completely absent here with monsters moving about like they weigh nothing and as if gravity doesn't apply to them.

Thus, even in the midst of an epic action sequence between two enormous monsters, it's frustratingly centred around the perspective of people I'm not emotionally invested in which means they couldn't even get the battles right - as the CGI insanity was intercut between clips of a bland, mundane family attempting to find each other amongst the rubble & carnage they helped create...

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.

It seemed more about pimping her brand out than it was about creating a compelling movie.

Seriously a waste of time!!

makes this film unwatchable.

It took me almost all day to get through it because I kept getting bored.

I have to say this is in my top 3 worst movies of 2019.

The plot is ridiculus and dragged out.

But they kept shoving their boring human characters in our faces, I'm so angry this movie sucks so bad.

His direction is typical, current Hollywood shlock, way too long, a loud, throbbing score, constant cross-cutting, and an endless flurry of CGI imagery in a confused, muddy blur of events.

This movie is worth the watch.

You know, most films require a suspension of disbelief - but this film's stupid writing, and tiresome (over)use of Hollywood 'near-miss' CGI driven close calls, just stretches that suspension to the breaking point and beyond.

This one, "King of the Monsters", felt like an empty, bland shell that took zero risks and felt as though I was watching bland entertainment which is what the old Godzilla movies are, but with Hollywood I expected more.

Godzilla: King of The Monsters is impressively shot but focuses far too much on the most boring characters we as an audience couldn't care less about...

The scenes at Honolulu airport and San Francisco Bay have slow, methodical camera movements and tight close ups showing off the animals size.

Waste of your pocket and time.

This sequel is far superior to the 2014 film with an exciting variety of monsters, phenomenal fx and storytelling, hardcore action, and plenty of screen time for our beloved kaiju, Gojira.

This movie was action packed summer fun film to enjoy.

The titan battles are awesome and visually stunning!

Top it all off with some some superb actors given an awful and laughable script cluttered with miserable exposition and you'll have some of the most boring and dreadful moments in the theater.

Lame repetitive dialogue over and over just like in GoT season 8!

Overall, it's a pretty pointless movie...

Like looking at the destruction of a Godzilla-torn city, it is a disheartening catastrophe to see a monster movie that's so dull.

It's the irritating kind that involves scenes brimming with weak and tired jokes every five minutes, despite being in intense life-or-death situations, only existing to stretch the runtime, whilst merely feigning any hints of sincerity.

This is the worst movie i had ever seen .

The battles were epic and enjoyable.

Very thrilling and exciting .

Way too much skipping to boring emotional human drama and her stupid daughter and not enough smashing,roaring and they killed mothra five secs in?

I watched this, outside of it's theatrical release of course, to see whether anything entertaining could come from it or whether it could possibly be totally devoid of any entertainment level whatsoever.

All in all, it ends up feeling a bit wonky and disjointed, and at times mildly confusing.

The problem is that movie dragged on with illogical and embarrassing dialogue like an expert asking "what do you mean?

The climax will have you on the edge of your seats.

The acting was also weak, and the dialogue was trite and cliche'd.

Dont waste your money on this movie just watch the fight scenes on YouTube.

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.

Another Lame Contrived Theme park movie .

Such scenes lose all suspense, and becomes just ridiculous and face-palmingly bad; just tired Hollywood action-flick cliche stuff.

For a popcorn movie with plenty of action this is worth watching.

I left the theater with nothing less than the feeling of neutral.

I get it - they want build-up, flesh out and such (I'm an author, I do that, too), but I found in this movie that all that build-up was just boring, to put it bluntly.

Kids wanted to leave.

This is one of the worst movies iv ever seen The team is acting like they are playing a video game sets on easy mode, They always do the right things they always have a plan and it work

There is literally no storyline.

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.

Horrible waste of time.

I enjoyed watching the monsters amd battle, but man was the rest of the movie a painful boring mess.

This monstrous stupidity had it all - annoying kids, predictable script, cringy lines, stupid characters making stupid decisions, climate change propaganda.

Cliche the movie.

How is this movie boring!!.

Instead the plot is confusing.

How can you make a movie with clearly a good crew behind the scenes, good effects and an established winner like Godzilla - and make it this tedious and disappointing?

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.

As far as the plot being convoluted or confusing, that's simply wrong, Avengers Endgame had a more convoluted and confusing plot thanks to its time travel and raised too many questions to the point that fans and producers of the film had to save it in order to make some sort of sense (Though I still think Endgame is a pretty good film.


Their battles are intense and fully satisfying.

The story just very slowly plods along & just keeps showing us boring humans in bases or boats or vehicles & it's very boring.

Someone needs to tell that Millie Bobby Brown she's not amazing just because she's been in Stranger Things and that using cliché, silly character decisions to push forward a movie isn't interesting.

This is the worst movie and the worst Godzilla I have seen in a long time.

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.

Once the monsters are shown (very early on in the movie), we get bored by their presence.

I was never a fan of the 2014 Godzilla ( I found it awful) and his design was never a favorite, but Goji is entertaining in this one.

There is no plot.

This movie is so predictable, and the ideas are so cheap that you can not go lower than that.

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.

worst movie ever made .

They created the best monsters to grace the screen only to be let down by dark and dull pallete, rushed plot, not enough screen time for the monsters.

It's fun, entertaining and at many times will keep the viewer on the edge of their seat.

I'll think I'll go back to Godzilla being a man in a suit, that was more entertaining.


Vera Farmiga is a great actress, she tried her best to work something with her character, but her character was just bland at first, later, the most hated one and finally - unredeemable.

But what they could've done better was with the human characters who delivered plain dialouges which were boring.

Boring Bluescreen Pablum .

The monster fights were boring and tedious CGI fests.

There are way more monster battles which are stunning and beautifully shot, the stakes are higher, and the overall character design is amazing.

As great as it all was, there were parts that lacked a great thematic punch, too many deus ex machina moments (a couple felt goofy and nearly predictable), and the script felt like it tried hard to fence an R rating.

This film also feels the need to include pointless Godzilla lore at all times in a pathetic way to keep die hard Godzilla fans entertained.

In between the boring, drawn-out battles between the Titans, we're treated to a litany of "Humans BAD.....

This movie is a waste of time.

Super boring ..characterization like paper .

More empty junk made for the Chinese market.

The Most Boring Monster Movie In Recent Memory .

I found watching the movie's astounding visuals with the comment track playing to be more enjoyable than watching with the actual movie dialogue.

However the scenes with the monsters are stunning, and it's more fun then you think just watching monsters destroying things.

What made the first movie so enjoyable was the pacing, and constant atmosphere of dread surrounding the protagonists, the situation felt like it was untenable.

Definitely a most boring film of the year .

The characters were also bland and they were played by some of the great actors and actresses.

This is one of the worst movies ever, trust me.

What a waste of talent and everyone's time.

Worst Movie in the Series .

This will be a very biased review as I am a fan of the kaiju genre and despite some of the negative reviews that the predecessor received, I actually enjoyed it and thought that this film was a very satisfying and enjoyable sequel.

Weak Screenplay,Boring Narrative .

Fell asleep soon after watching this farce.

The references to the old movies are enjoyable.

Complete waste of time.

This film has Great cast , Amazing Cinematography , good story and characters and action packed with non stop thrills , Don't listen to the Over the top negative reviews , this is a pretty good film , I Had fun from start to finish <3.

Every big sequence I was trying to absorb they kept cutting away to the pointless actions of the humans, yelling, flying, running or being just useless in general, sometimes just staring at what's going on...

Stunning effects, and good acting.

I lost count of how many times some human stares into Godzilla's eyes in some empty attempt to show a kind of connection between man and monster (sorry, not a monster).

, A boring stories, Bad acting, poor script, and really really bad editing, you can even tell when they interact humans with the monsters that they are just standing behind a giant screen.

It surpassed my expectations and didnt leave me bored.

All lazy and contrived writing.

I really hate it that this is my first review, but overall, this junk of a waste of cinema time got me so angry that I had to write on this title.

Why waste my time with anything else than pure magic: CGI monsters battling each other, with no regard to their shape, characteristics or abilities, just random attacks, like 5 year olds playing MK.

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.

Let me tell you that the tradition that is forcing all cliche known to mankind is very well present in this movie.

It goes on with cliche bursting fake heroism, with characters who only have the purpose of throwing in some (un)funny lines once in a while, with kids who are so sophisticated that leading astrophysicists could learn from them, with dying characters that you just don't care about, even though you definitely should, with characters coming to conclusions despite the fact that there's absolutely NO.

Constant monster fights can be boring after a timeThe worst part is the Godzilla expert guy sacrificing himself.

Literally nothing happens, then everything happens for jo reason and you just DON'T CARE.

Kyle Chandler is also the most uninspiring protagonist I can imagine, although better actors like Ken Watanabe and Charles Dance are assured in smaller roles.

There is no plot.

the story is way too boring and predictable and even the special effects are way too bright that they'll hurt your eyes!

Waste of time .

that was one of the worst movies i've seen since Pompeii and Pacific Rim: Uprising.

In my opinion, the problem with this film is the same as the first one: the plot is boring, the characters are underdeveloped and bland, and the script is corny and stupid.

Better than 1st one due to the fact you actually see godzilla this time but it is somewhat slow paced and the humans side of the story really detracted from the whole experience.

This movie bored the crap out of me.

The human characters really have trivial motivations that reek of lazy writing and bland Marvel inspired universe building.

Incredibly boring......

Not the best execution of what could've been an interesting plot, but overall better than Godzilla (2014) and an enjoyable popcorn movie.

Aside from loud, entertaining monster battles, this sequel will be forgotten.

Don't waste your time!!.

The ONLY good performance & actor in the film was VERA FARMIGA as she's a great actor but the rest was dull & so boring to watch.

Godzilla (2014) knew how to string events together and build up the tension and then release it with great action set pieces that never overstayed their welcome, this is simply not the case in the case here, and the movie somehow manages to bore more than it entertains which I never would have thought I would say about a big budget Godzilla movie.


Don't waste your time.

I didn't expect Godzilla to be Jurassic Park; however, the biggest sin is that it's boring.

But this turkey - with the months of production and pre-production that goes into a film like this - and the huge budget, why must the writing be so bad, and the action scenes so predictable and formulaic?

Cheesy, predictable excess "overacting " .

So get ready for the knock down drag out battle that's coming by watching this and getting ready.

An extremely predictable movie.

Kong, but only if they spare us the boring characters.

He also seems like a decent writer, but in this film, his writing and directing were really bland - which goes to story and characters.

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.

Dull paced and sometimes drags .

Messy, boring, repetitive and confusing .

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.

Cliche fest / Bad CGI .

Don't waste your time.

No story, no feel for the characters and no suspense.

Except for a thrilling and fantastic aerial fight sequence between the air force and Rodan.

They don't try any time to keep it believable in any way, one monster that want radioactivity one that want electricity and then some fly monsters that fly slow and flattens buildings with some magical force, jet planes that are slower then propeller plans and much much more fails.


But over all, Godzilla, the King of the Monsters was entertaining and fun to watch.

Even if you went cliche and had Madison and her father standing on the edge of Boston harbor as the sun was rising and Godzilla disappeared off into the water and then a touching moment between them that would have been infinitely better.

It had just the right balance of story and action, the acting was great, every appearance of either a MUTO or Godzilla was incredibly thrilling and let's not forget the awesome Hawaii scene.

This is one of the worst movies I have ever seen.

The final fight between Godzilla & Ghidorah is same as the final fight in the previous part of Godzilla in 2014, it looks like repetitive scene, besides the other creatures that pop up less than a minute without any information about what they're capable to do.

But this is definitely a must see for Godzilla fans, so just ignore the pretentious critics who are very wishy washy when it comes to blockbusters.

It could be better but I enjoyed it!

Otherwise an enjoyable movie.

Unwatchable, amateur.

Chaotic, loud and boring...

"Godzilla: King Of The Monsters" is loud but dull.

It is entertaining enough if you are snowed in and the Covfefe virus is keeping you from the regular theater.

There are a lot of action sequences in the movie among the beasts and they are epic, visually stunning, and fun to watch.

This film is the predictable sequel to "Godzilla", with the appearance of a legion of monstrous creatures called Titans.

Visually stunning .

Someone decides to wake monsters up to kill off the population to save the Earth - how stupid - how unoriginal - how uninspiring.

But the human side was awful, had way too much screentime, and an incredibly boring and played out plot.


It's an embarrassing waste of money.

Good thing I am a real monster lover, else I would have walked out.

No plot would have been better....

This movie is a display of how to waste a large amount of money on something impossible to watch, something so badly written that makes you just cringe.

This movie proves that you can throw all the money in the world but even with decent actors, you still need a little thing called PLOT DEVELOPMENT in order to have a movie worth watching.

They're bland, cliché, and make stupid decisions.

In short, It's a boring film, no performances (as usual), no good storytelling, naive scenario and though there are 2 monsters fighting in a scene and a lot is happening but I feel very bored in the presence of Godzilla itself.

I feel like the graphic dept saw how bad this movie was and fealt compelled to at least make up for the failure that is this bore fest.

Ultimately, "King of the Monsters" is fun to watch but the human element feels boring and becomes a nuisance.

One of the most boring films ive ever seen.

It's action packed with twists, turns, AMAZING cgi, and all the classic Godzilla fan service you can handle!

Not only is the plot and the political philosophy absurd, and causes absurd actions by the characters, it also makes for a very boring monster flick.

personality made him entertaining and Godzilla was simply awe inspiring, making him feel larger than life.

Plus, we see a lot of pointless drama.

They go through all the predictable motions.

Way too slow .

the monster battles are the ONLY thing worth watching in this film.

But i enjoyed it anyways 😁

It's propaganda, sponsored by evil governments and corporations who want to kill most of the people on the planet.

Don't waste your money, your time either.

A good action packed sequel .

Predictable all the way .

The plot is incredibly predictable and the movie played it safe for the most part.

Which was equally unimaginative, tacky and dull .

But the action was exciting, and I really enjoyed the designs of the various kaiju.

Everyone in the film are really dull, even Millie Bobby Brown, who does her usual shtick of have a mental breakdown.

Unwatchable nonsense.

This movie has the tendency to throw in some super cliche moments.

A total waste of cast and money in a weird film where the main cast all are blessed with John Wicks terminatoriness.

I liked all the performances in here, the action was breathtaking, the CGI was great and so were the sets.

Her awful "acting" made this movie unbearable!

At an hour in I was so bored I was falling asleep in the theater!

This is a well presented, fun, action packed monster romp with everyone's favourite king of the monsters.

The visuals were stunning and the fights were great.

I thought this film was a very good film about monster fights and it was action packed and very tense to watch, very recommended to watch.

The rest of the casting is typically social justice with a black woman running the senate (yawn), and another running the army.

Putting together such a predictable plot with such boring and unsympathetic characters can't lead to something good I'm afraid.

I only kept watching it for the fights among the monsters.. Its like they just did random plots with no story nor meaning behind it..

Spectators will immerse themselves in action and adventure, feel the adrenaline rush, "adds actress Vera Farmiga.

Having enjoyed the 2014 start to this franchise, I had some trepidation after reading a few "ho-hum" reviews of this Godzilla.

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.

That's how breathtaking this movie actually is.

the worst movie of the decade .

As far as monster movies goes, it's worth the watch.

the story and decision making of these human characters are laughable and dumb and it's so boring it'll make you sleepy.

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.

It was boring and nothing more than dark battle scenes one right after the other.

You shouldn't go into this movie expecting to get a convincing story with compelling characters.

The problem is that no plot, and awful acting, as well as utterly dislikeable characters (Madison is not exactly a very likeable kid and appears mostly entitled and spoilt), and the ridiculous eco-mentalist premise , this film gets 4/10 and that is entirely due to the action scenes and CGI.

Although it seems to have potential, especially judging by the sheer number of enormous creatures depicted, it manages to be simply dull and boring.

Rodan, the fire demon, coming out of that volcano and causing complete devastation to the puny world beneath him is just horrifying and stunning at the same time.

This scene still very boring!

What a waste of time.

The monsters are all bland and uninteresting.

If this is one of your favorite genre too, by lowering your expectation you will definitely enjoy it & if not, don't waste your time on this.

People in this movie are so dumb it was unbearable to watch any scene involved them.

A Waste of Time .

The human drama is boring and cliche.

"Dry", "boring" and "irrelevant" would be compliments to these actors.

All in all a waste of money, better watch the first part again.

Cardboard, cliche characters.

Big action fun with a sprinkling of science and plenty of plot holes but still enjoyable.

daddy mom baby boring...

Matched with an impressive elemental tone-setter or two - Ghidorah enveloped by a swirling thunderstorm, Rodan birthed from the belly of a volcano, Mothra hibernating beneath the veil of a misty waterfall - the monster effects are breathtaking; forboding, painterly and mythical in their execution.


I have nothing against a bad plot, if you make the movie entertaining.

Cinema-goers may be wondering how a seemingly action-heavy monster movie could possibly be so boring.

Godzilla King of the Monsters is an enjoyable popcorn movie with incredible monsters, a good story and an amazing soundtrack.

dont waste your time .

Overall, this movie was very entertaining while Godzilla and other monsters were on the screen.

This was a big let down, it was boring at times.

Though, the first half was boring and tedious to get through.

I was so bored that I started to play Tetris on my mobile phone!

Honestly if the human race went extinct in this movie it would've been much more entertaining and not this boring.

I think it is the worst movie i've seen in my life.

The visuals are stunning and the story line is great!

The human characters with the exception of Tanaka are possibly the most dull I've ever experienced on film.

Bear McCreary's propulsive, reverent music score is an absolute achievement, working in tandem with the stunning special effects to trigger real emotional reactions.

This film managed to make Charles Dance dull, that in itself is impressive.

It just kinda bored me.

Having totally uninteresting, pointless characters running around screaming endlessly and nameless storm troopers firing endless guns from their arms, from planes, and explosions everywhere and endless people and monsters throwing each other around IS NOT EXCITING.

It seemed to me like actors from popular tv shows and movies were thrown together which made it rather confusing (a mix of The Conjuring, Stranger Things and Game of Thrones - HUH??

People just stand watching monsters emerge only running away after a long drawn out pause for effect and a cool scene by which time it's too late.. Planes and choppers need to get within ten feet of monsters to fire missiles instead of doing it from 1000 yards or more.

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.

The characters are too predictable and stock.

Instead of exploring the Godzilla and other monster stories, the movie relies on a very stupid kid plotlines to run the story, which are utterly pointless and annoying to see the same damn kid again and again being stupid just for the sake of moving the story along.

It was always about the monster, so in this regard they kept true to form, and thus, was enjoyable for the type of movie it was.

Charles Dance is always good but he really phones in his Tywin Lannister impersonation here (but then again it's always entertaining) Mille Bobbie Brown does the best with a thankless role.

what an epic waste of time.. the story sucks and if you take L to be the hero girl give her credit for stranger things...

It's a thrilling Creature feature that feels like it clawed its way out of the 60s Godzilla movies.

Entertaining with Crappy Characters.

Cliche .

This has a interesting story, breathtaking CGI, and the best thing of this movie is the monster vs monster fight scenes in the movie, in my opinion the best one is when Godzilla and Mothra fight against Rodan and King Githora.

Graphics and visual were stunning.


No story and horrible acting.

If you're not a hardcore Godzilla fan, don't waste your time .

Dialogs are very predictable!

The storyline is boring and predictable as well as the characters.

The Bad Storyline - unimaginative, lame, dull, no - logic Annoying kid carachter and also that family line backstory Carachter motivation?

The movie has great visuals, but even without the humans and the bad story there still is a huge problem with this movie, the fighting between monsters, which lets face it, is the reason we went to see the movie in the first place is bland.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters was a very entertaining sequel to the 2014 Godzilla.

Also this movies is more fast paced than the previous movie and the monsters are it a lot more than the previous movie.

I am not sure about Brown's acting abilities, I haven't seen much of her work, but here she was bland, even in the scenes which requires a specific emotion, she could not achieve it.

So I do not see much difference from the first part of 2014, the movie was just as boring.

Either because it was just boring and I didn't care, or it was just obvious.

The story with the humans are predictable and recycled.

Even if the cinematography is meh, the fights are still highly enjoyable, because of the well implemented special effects.

Maybe worst movie of the year, among top 10 worst movies ever.

worst movie ever 1/10 if i could i'll give 0

For the most part, the scenes with the monsters doing their thing are quite entertaining.

I loved the look of these creatures and all of the action scenes are very exciting, which put a huge smile on my face.

It contains a typical modern-day story with a predictable plot and so many last-second rescues it got boring.

All in all-a boring, predictable ignorant movie for ignorant masses, just like modern mainstream radio music.

Waste of time.

Major yawn.

I highly recommend it.

Edit out most of the scenes of the people, and their pathetic dialog (most of which are a mess of cliches) and pointless subplots, and concentrate on the monsters fighting.

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.

Save your money!

Bland nonsensical plot with cringeworthy acting and weak CGI

The human characters are a significantly better than in 2014, where we follow this BORING piece of wood human that hogs the movie after the first thirty minutes where the best character gets killed off.

I was not disappointed, and the scenery and graphics during the battles were breathtaking, especially between King Ghidora and Rodan.

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.

Except VFX story is boring.

Dreadful waste of time.

save your money.

The very first Godzilla with Matthew Broderick was silly and cheesy, but at least it was entertaining.

This moving is stupid, boring, and excruciatingly long.

I literally fell asleep 3 times trying to watch this.

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.

except the monsters are all dynamic shots and repetitive movements.

The plot provided a reasonable excuse for the battles and didn't seem totally ridiculous, and the actors at times even made it seem genuinely compelling.

This movie had stunning and absolutely kick ass monster battles, and it had human characters I cared about.

The climax was awesome and exciting - frankly, it was the best part of the whole movie, where we got what we came for: the huge, epic Battle of the Monsters.

The other actors, seem to slow down the plot of the whole movie.



Enjoyable, in most of the frames .

The writing was cheesy and lazy, there are multiple scenes only for exposition, there's a lot of cliches, the story is predictable and the characters constantly make small stupid decisions that really add up to be really annoying.

This movie was so cliche I cringed several times throughout the film.

The best performance of the film is Ken Watanabe´s a recognized great actor, sadly he didn´t get a lot of scenic time in the movie, but well, it was entertaining

Admission: Most giant monster movies bore me to tears.

Visually stunning .

Great effects and boring acting.

This leads to the outcome of the finale feeling contrived and what action we do see to be meaningless; One moment we see Godzilla has the upper-hand, then we cut to humans, only to cut back to the action to find that Ghidorah is winning for reasons we did not get to see.

Considering going back to the movies to watch it again since I enjoyed it greatly.

As a side note, the Japanese dubbed version was kind of awful due to some unbearable miscasting.

That's storyline about crazy angry woman who act not logically, and all actions are really predictable.

I'm gonna keep this as short as possible about the rest: lots of noise, lots of flashy lights and explosions (just a bunch of high budget show-off to compensate the lack of story and good acting), no standout perfomance by an actor (even though good actors where on set, with the likes of Charles Dance for example).


Enjoyed it a lot.

Though I didn't care for the characters in that one, the decision to have Godzilla's battles as background until the very end was a good one, as presumably he realised that the actual fights between the monsters are pretty boring.

But here, the characters are even more boring and lifeless.


The washed out look of this film, the halfhearted dialogue and storyline, the bland slate of actors lined up for this movie - which appears to have been marketing primarily to less-critical audiences in China.

As before, the human storylines drag down the pacing and make this going on too much, and the staged conflict is boring at times.

Unlike the first film, GKOM incorporates a bit of comic dialogue and character development, most or all of it intentional, which I found an enjoyable tension breaker.


The only cringe worthy, monster movie cliche they missed out on, was having someone who could speak Titan to Godzilla.

We got some monster fights which saved the movie but other than that it was mostly boring.

The other characters were vapid, annoying, uninteresting "we're a family after all!

Its dum, cliche, instructed and a huge waste of money.

The battles are visual intense and serves the story well.

The soundtrack also seemed intentionally reminiscent of past monster glories, adding to the enjoyable nostalgia.

Skip this and dont waste your time

Bored to super freaking death!

Dont know how i managed to stay awake especially with the loud noises.

The human storyline is both meh and predictable at far too many points.

I highly recommend it.

The movie is worth watching when you have nothing else to do and you are in the mood for this type of film.

Of course the CGI was fantastic, but story was tedious and disjointed.

The worst movie experience I have ever had.

Waste of time .

In stark contrast to the recent Japanese-made "Shin Godzilla" which was very enjoyable.

Only reason I didn't walk out of the cinema was because I fell asleep.

While the plot is contrived and the acting is sub-par, what actually bothers me the most is the cgi.

Other than that, the movie is entertaining.

No story whatsoever.

But this movie isn't one of themMaybe with the below mediocre reviews and poor box office sales, perhaps Hollywood will actually spend time making a movie thats refreshing and entertaining even if it's a additional entry to a long running franchise

Cliche talks and stupid reactions of people in case of danger in some parts of the movie.

Not because it was funny, but I was genuinly laughing my ass of about how silly and predictable this movie is.

I was bored, anyway, and then when that BS came into I just couldn't stomach watching any more.

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.

The first Godzilla film from 2014 left me wanting more in a good way, and 2017's Kong: Skull Island gave me an entertaining movie about giant monsters fighting each other.

If being cliche was the only problem with this movie I wouldn't be disappointed.

Unfortunately despite the destruction, it looks like cheap CGI and a brain dead dull story.

Smash bang wallop monster mash up but told via an extraneous human centric storytelling fabric: all this nonsense about Monarch and monster specialist scientists as well as a human centred narrative viewpoint: the interminably boring, uninteresting and unengaging human failed family who clutter up all the narrative points and divert the narrative thrust at almost every juncture of the films plot delivery.

Cheesy and cliche .

Pretty cliché as characters go.

This film delivers where it counts, beautiful and stunning creature designs and amazing fight sequences.

Fun movie but predictable story.

The story is just bland.

Maybe I'm being a little harsh on it, but it's just so completely un-engaging and quite frankly boring that it's hard to recommend to anyone.

Terrible acting and no story .

While the visual effects and the sound are both fantastic, they are unfortunately overshadowed by the runtime of the movie; horribly written characters, who don't have any development throughout the story; poorly written story that even the reason of why they want to wake up the Titans is the the biggest stupidity that i've ever heard and at the same time it doesn't make any sense at all; painfully average dialogue, with huge percent of it is just exposition; even the actors, who are very good and proved that in their careers - all of them give a mediocre performances and the blame for that is the direction and the script; bland music and cinematography, which is not very impressive, unlike it's predecessor.

One of the worst movies I've seen.

2 out of the 3 editors worked on Transformers and Justice league (yawn), and it really shows.

How the hell did you make it boring?!

It has very cheesy parts and most of them are very dull.

Boring movie .

Smash, smash, cliche, boom, smash, meh.

It is a huge waste of time.

The ending was stretched to the point that it was unbearable.

Entertaining film.

We are supposed to care YET we don't at all because 1) Vera was horribly miscast in the role and 2) The script was sooo bad, the dialogue so wooden and cliche, that the audience actually hated her and thought "good riddance" when she died.

By far one of the worst movies I've seen in a while.

the film has some short falls but over all is entertaining and gave history unknown to most of those true Godzilla fans as well as hints of what is possibly to come.

But no, the cast is dull.

Story telling: everyone is yelling for hours, yet the pace seems to be strangely slow.

An action movie that was dull.

Very loud, very dumb, and very entertaining .

It felt repetitive in action.

this one is boring thriving and through and the monsters are always shrouded in dark and not even well done .

The action until the end felt ridiculously boring and uninteresting.

Both the intensity and the quantitative and qualitative variability in people's feelings and reactions is quite fascinating.

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.

And its so boring...


Its really entertaining and action specially for younger gen.

In fact, the movie was so predictable that even a dead man would see things coming before they happened.

All in all it was more depressing than exciting.

Predictable, with no substance and boring

movie makers should have a cliche team, to catch any possible cliches.

Boring, predictable, cgi all the way.

What a waste of my money.

In fact, it's probably the only actually thrilling scene in the whole movie.

By literally slamming the breaks on the audience adrenaline and cutting off the air supply with human sacrifice after human sacrifice, by the time Godzilla finally climbs to the top of the monster heap, the audience is in tears rather than exploding with cheers and applause.

OMG, I thought and told myself it's going to be so exciting.

I found "Godzilla King Of The Monsters" to be so boring it was ridiculous, a big budget monster movie that concentrates way too much on the boring cast of humans!!.

Although the film focused more on the human characters and drama and had way too many of them, it was still entertaining enough and the monster fighting/action scenes more than made up for it.

Great monster CGI and the battles were pretty good, but the humans really bored me.

They pretty much copied the script from Pacific Rim and left out the giant robots which was half of why those movies were worth watching in the first place.

In the end ist one of the most boring movies i have ever seen with about 25 min of amazing entertaining kaiju action mixed in.

Dont waste a second of your life on this.

"Kong: Skull Island" was a million times better than this BORING film & the 1998 Godzilla film is still the best version of Godzilla.

Overall, Godzilla: King of the Monsters is a boring, melodramatic Western interpretation on a Kaiju film; placing the Kaiju in the background as mere scenery.

Boring, terrible CGI, just visual fluff.

This is the worst movie i had ever seen,Even every character wants to slap

Graphically it was intense, The CGI felt breathtaking.

Don't waste your time.

One of the worst movies I've seen in years .

Visually it offers glorious spectacles, but its' often dark and murky palette sometimes limits visible Titan surface detail, making some moments in Kaiju clashes a bit hard to follow and less realistic.

Wasted 2 hours on a movie with no story it would have been better if I had watched some cartoons.

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.

There is a remnant of a plot which is bad, confusing, doesn't go anywhere.

If you forget about all that and focus on the creatures battling, then it is a movie worth watching!

but a bit boring .


Incredibly boring, acting was boring, fights were boring everything about it was just boring, one of the rare times I've felt like walking out of a film, I'd avoid this to be honest

The story is bland, the characters are flat.

Poorly directed by Michael Dougherty and co-written by Zach Shields and the director, making him a double threat of banality.

It's not even fun smash smash, boom, cliche.

This new addition to the Hollywood franchise is devoid of what made Edwards' movie so gripping and atmospheric.

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.

The 2014 one is the worst movie I ever watch at the cinema.

The story is boring and predictable.

Don't waste your time .

But that's not my thing, i like complicated compelling characters with lots of depth, so that's why this is my rating.

If you love action movie with breathtaking CGI than Godzilla King of the monster will not disappoint you

Even people who liked to movie were starting to get a bit bored towards the end.

Very cool sound effects and visually entertaining to watch godzilla and other monsters face off

But even with a bad screenplay, the actors do a good enough job to be entertaining when they need to be.


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).

This is utter waste of time.

Godzilla movies have to be somewhat formulaic and this one certainly is.

Except them every other character seemed bland and unlikable.

And maybe I'll make a lot of fans angry but you know what movie was more entertaining for me?

The beginning of this movie is slow and drags.

in short - vera famiga (this actress is very bad and annoying) are 500% sure what is she doing just only for the most cliche turn over phrase "i must fix what i´ve caused" ...

It kinda annoys me when camera switches from CG monsters to boring actors.

The worst movie I ever saw.

Unfortunately, though, the human stuff is even duller than before and the monster stuff is somehow arguably even less interesting than that.


Worst movie ever.

The movie touches on the cliché subject that humans are the "disease" of our world.

The second time was already too predictable.

The build up from the characters was suspect but pretty entertaining film.

Pretty boring until the monsters show up.

Before that, in the beginning, she steals the entry card from the guy, opens the door and closes it in the blink of an eye, to save her mother, and the guy is somehow magically too slow to stop that, of course.

4 - Madison drove Ghidorah to the sports stadium using the Orka machine 5 - Mark Russell and Emma Russell, who repaired the Orka machine and dragged Ghidorah behind, provided Godzilla with the opportunity to revive him, otherwise Ghidorah had killed him.

Explosions and fights seemed repetitive.

Though I do have to complain about the overall bland music.

The movie is worth a watch for the monsters only and the rest of the boring drama is pathetic.

The hero's were overacting, they're boring, predictable and the whole husband and wife thing being drawn together because of their daughter was just ridiculous.

Please save your money and see something else.

I think all the movies based on the character are entertaining.

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.

Actors' lines are all very wired and unexpected.

It's completely uninteresting.

The main criticism of viewers for Goodzilla 2014 was that the film had a slow rhythm and the viewer had to wait long to see Godzilla.

Stupidity over stupidity ✅ Illogical actions everywhere ✅ Laws of physics forgotten ✅ Nonexisting plot ✅ Predictable turn of events ✅ I'm gonna puke ✅

The 1998 movie is far more entertaining.

And given the budgets, era's of production with the available special FX of the times, quite a few are very enjoyable while some are just laughable junk.

No story, and the little you have is illogical and ridiculous.

The actors did their best with the uninspired writing and contrived plot.

How you can spend that much time, money and effort of making a modern monster movie and having it become that tedious, that boring, that uninteresting and that bland and unsatisfactory for a human being viewing this.

Monster scenes and fight scenes are worth the watch.

But I enjoyed it.

It's a fun movie and definitely worth watching.

It's abruptly confusing to me especially since that's something I don't think that my child would want me to do if they died in something like this so I would have been very wise not to get involved in such a plot to begin with.

I cared way more for the Über butterfly (what i call Mothra) than a couple of teeny pointless humans with an eye-rolling script whom I had zero invested emotion in their fate.

However, even with these impressive-looking monsters, "mundane" sadly still comes to mind far too often, mostly because of the terribly-written human characters.

It has what a monster movie needs: stunning visuals, awesome battles, stunning CGI and visuals; sure the characters are bland and not memorable By any means, but again...

If you think you know what this film is about and want to see if it is anything but predictable-stay home.

But the corny dialogue and unmistakable forced diversity makes it unwatchable.

No story, no acting ...

Last half hour of the movie is boring af.

Not to make fun OF the film, just to make fun with the film, because the movie kinda places the intention that it wants us to feel bored (the unnecessary human dialogue).

This is yet another teriible Godzilla movie, for all the reasons mentioned before, and merging the two could only mean Kong films get dragged down into the dumpster fire the Godzilla 'franchise' has become .

Zero character development, zero logic, zero interest, equals maximum indifference and boredom for the suffering audience.

They weren't given comedic traits, the film surprisingly, had a really dark and serious tone, and at the end, I actually enjoyed it.

Seriously one of the worst movies I've ever seen.

which made it difficult to follow the battle.

But as an Avid Godzilla Fan, I Enjoyed it.

This is just pretentious.

I found the dialogue to be ridiculous and cheesy; and the acting was bland (and when it comes to Millie Bobby Brown downright ANNOYING).

No acting , no plot, no fun .

Unbearable .

If you want a great example of balancing human drama with suspenseful monster fights watch Pacific Rim.

There's a lot of things happening and trying to hide this ~2hr long movie is going nowhere.

I wanted to leave after the first quarter.

I liked the film, but the mythology was growing tiresome towards the end.

Bear McCreary's propulsive, reverent music score is an absolute achievement, working in tandem with the stunning special effects to trigger real emotional reactions.

Enjoyable, in most of the frames.

The problem is that the monsters in this film are bland CGI creations who don't have distinct personalities aside from Godzilla.

Introduction of each monster was dramatic and stunning.

I'd had enough and was frankly bored.

In the first act, they give us a small amount of aliens, or dinosaurs and in exciting and magical way.

Movie is boring af.

The dialogue is moronic, the story cliche'd, not one ounce of originality.

Matched with an impressive elemental tone-setter or two - Ghidorah enveloped by a swirling thunderstorm, Rodan birthed from the belly of a volcano, Mothra hibernating beneath the veil of a misty waterfall - the monster effects are breathtaking; forboding, painterly and mythical in their execution.

I'm watching this right now and finding it boring and mundane.

That became terribly monotonous and boring.

Beautifully shot, with a compelling story, too!

The fight scenes are predictable and all the same.

The cast's work is more enjoyable in this film than in its predecessor.

Every time the monsters are onscreen you can the beauty of this film and it is just stunning.

Presented in Dolby Vision this is one stunning looking movie.

Cheesy and cliche from start to finish.

Loved every moment of this awesome, engaging, thrilling, jaw dropping, brilliant piece of art.

Monster action dragged down by silly human action.

This movie has barely anything to do with Godzilla and as a matter of fact most of the time they're fighting in the background while the story follows a boring family around and their drama.

A waste of time .

Where to begin, I went with lowest of my expectations to watch it but this film is so confusing that I am still wondering what just I watched.

At the top of my list for Worst Movie Ever.

Though they are still the weakest part of the film I will take many humans that have emotions over a BORING piece of wood human any day.

The original Japanese shows always revolved around the monsters and this movie just revolves around the boring actors.

Don't waste your time With this movie.

The cast as a whole was mostly boring, and with the exception of Ken Watanabe there was Kyle Chandler (who is a vastly underrated actor having been exceptional in Early Edition), there was little actual acting to be seen.

I recommend this movie to any Godzilla or Monster movie fan it's worth watching even if you have never seen a Godzilla movie before you can start here and understand what's going on easily and enjoy it.

Overall, absolutely worth a watch on the big screen and has breathtaking moments

Great action with boring characters.

A very good entertaining Godzilla movie.

Great monsters boring people .

Quite a few that went empty.


Unnecessarily too long due to all the screen time taken by these 3 terribly acted characters, which slowed it down and got boring in the middle of the movie.

Godzilla 2014 is way better because it knows when to make a bang and the fact that Goddzilla is barely in it makes it suspenseful, plus that film has a lot of unique camera shots to company it, while this film is useless action movie shlock.


The movie is visually stunning and the cgi on the titans is really well done but I found the movie to be boring and the story quite weak.

I confess that I found this part of the script somewhat confusing.

This was the worst movie I had ever heard.

I have 5 for the CGI, the story line, events are really boring, easy to predict.

The visuals were epic, but the idiotic characters had me curled up in my chair, ready to fall asleep.

So, in short - dull, uninteresting, annoying characters and utter waste of talent of actors.

One of the worst movies that I watched

Eye rolling through out the movie, this is got to be the most boring movie I've ever seen.

Boring and unrealistic .

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.

Another "even the smallest one can make the biggest difference" banality of which these so called film makers are so fond today.

The movie is fast paced and it is like there are no breaks on it so buckle up for one hell of a ride .

The film's plot is incredibly boring and dragged out.

Bad script, All the PC boxes checked off to make this a boring movie.

Main character is kind of pointless and useless & I don't know why everyone keeps deferring to him or listening to him- at all.

Boring .

What waste of time!

The Film, is genuinely, one of the most ridiculously flawed & boring (not even funny bad) movies I've seen in the past decade - it's really bad.

The acting was pretty good and for a monster movie the plot was enjoyable i thought.

This movie is a perfect example of self indulgent mayhem that goes on and on and is meaningless.

no story at all.

It was entertaining mindless monster mayhem.

Great special effects and there's some clever ideas if you can wade through the boredom to get to them.

They are awe inspiring in small doses.

Way too long, no plot, no story, noise and fighting.

Usually i would suggest to watch anyways, at least for the fight scenes, but they are so predictable it's not worth it.

Too many contrived plot elements, asking the audience to suspend belief just once too many times.

Boring characters and stereotypical monster behavior; at one point the monsters are labelled as animals the next minute they have feelings and act like humans.

Otherwise, I would rate it as the worst movie

Barely entertaining and funny if you see it with your friends...

No story or character development.

I will say it's the worst movie made in Hollywood.

Bloated, uninspiring monsterfest .

I wouldn't describe Rodan as beautiful, but he is eye-catching with his massive pterosaur cranium, intense avian eyes, and perpetually ember-emitting body A plethora of other interesting titans get cameos, undoubtedly on call for next year's Godzilla versus Kong.

I don't mean it it badly made, no sir it looks awesome, but it is repetitive and consists of like four different attacks shared among all monsters and just rehashed every fight and all the fights.

Sooooooooooooooo boring!!!.

Every line, and I mean every line uttered by Bradley Whitford (who I normally really like and appreciate) was a Hollywood cliche - a steady and nauseating steam of crisis met with smarmy, witless comebacks that no one in that situation would say in the moment.

Slow story line.

The action scenes between the boring talking were breathtaking and actually got me hyped for the next sequels to come.

Monstrous waste of time.

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!!!!

Fun and entertaining .

Poor and boring not even close to the Anime Idea .

Worst movie ever .

Jump scares and "unexpected turns" that you expect from 5 minutes....

Don't waste your time.

Simply unfinished, uninteresting, and unoriginal storyline followed by more glimpses of these newfound historic monsters.

no story .. no acting ...

cliché from start to the end.

Slow Titan like giant mammoth can travel from one continent to another one on a blink of eye.

What boring movie!

The monsters and the action and destruction are just simply awe inspiring!

This is definitely worth watching in theaters.
