The shot of Kong and Godzilla vs Shimo and Scar King running against each other 😩 I almost went up from my seat like and clapped. Pure cinema🔥 loved that we actually got another fight between Kong and Godzilla that actually lasted a bit. Loved that we got to focus more on Kong while Godzilla was just doing his shit before the 3rd act. I expected to like this but didn’t expect to love it. Honestly want them to spend more time in Hollow Earth going forward

I haven't seen this but don't care about spoilers - to me KOTM and GvK were fun but not really at all "fun bad" in the cheesy, goofy way I like - is this kind of more in the same vein as those two tonally or is it way more hokey?

I saw it this afternoon and I thought it was a big bright colorful mess but the monster fights were silly fun.  IMO, the fights are goofy in a fun way....Kong using Baby Kong as a weapon silly

The third act kinda fell apart for me a bit. At a certain point, it practically lampshaded any criticism of weightless action scenes by have an actual weightless action scene. Rio looked especially terrible too, almost to the point where I was squinting to try and find AI elements, but I might just be getting too paranoid. 

 

Lots of fun little moments in this, but ultimately disappointing. More Godzilla next time, please.

Kong using baby Kong as a blunt weapon might be scene of the year. I fucking died. 

The number of times I've wanted to do that with unruly children and their shitty parents in public places...

Never thought a monsterverse movie would be the one that truly understands me.

Fun times with the monsters (the apes are the MVPs!) and the human cast is serviceable but I found the climax so rushed that it doesn't do the set-up/stakes justice IMO. Just as it starts ramping up, the movie starts sprinting towards wrapping it up as well.

For comparison, the climaxes of G14-KOTM-GvK all felt like these massive setpieces/mini-movies in themselves: San Francisco-Boston-the extended Hong Kong battle. While in GXK:
The Hollow Earth gravity battle and Skar King finally making it to the surface world feels like the 2nd act culmination/lead in to a sprawling 3rd act, but the Rio battle was surprisingly short for me. I can't help but think of when the MUTOs/Ghidorah/MechaG all had their moments of "victory"/putting up a challenge for our heroes.

But enough of that, I'd also like to think of what I did enjoy:

- various monsters battles sprinkled throughout
- the monsters getting to shine and showing their personalities
- nice build up to Skar King!
- Godzilla and Shimo have short and sweet roles, nothing new for the genre.

Overall, I guess a 7/10 for me. (my rankings of the various Monsterverse movies are ever changing hahahaha)
