“Godzilla vs. Kong” is more realistic than any WWE match



As the final addition to the monsterverse series, two of the most iconic monsters will fight for the title of Alpha Titan.

Two giant titans slugging each other on the big screen? Sign me up! After the 2014 release of Godzilla, the monsterverse fan base has been waiting for the match of the century for the last seven years. On March 31, Godzilla vs. Kong was released on HBO MAX and opened in theaters. 

The plot takes place five years after the events in Godzilla: King of the Monsters. King Kong is isolated on his home Skull Island because Monarch, an agency that studies these monsters, fears that King Kong and Godzilla will fight each other for the title of alpha titan. The film takes an unexpected turn, throwing the audience in a different direction of which monster will actually win. 

Although the plot of the movie is a little all over the place, the movie is extremely entertaining. The CGI of Godzilla and King Kong are beautifully done. From every scale to every hair on their body, the big screen is able to amplify all the intricate details of their bodies. This movie isn’t dark lit like the other ones but rather uses very colorful highlights on the creatures during their battle scene. 

One of the main focuses of the movie are the facial features of the creatures. Even in the 2005 King Kong, the director, Peter Jackson, emphasizes the monster’s eyes. King Kong’s eyes are more humanized than Godzilla’s in order to gain sympathy for Kong. This film makes Godzilla more of a villain in the beginning, but the twist later shows why the hero is now damaging the city for no reason. 

During the moments where the two titans aren’t going at each other’s necks, the human plots are split into two parts. Luckily, the two stories join together to make a coherent storyline. Both Alexander Skarsgård (Nathan Lind) and Rebecca Hall (Ilene Andrews) play the lead human characters, with the reappearance of Millie Bobby Brown’s character Madison Russell from Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Although Hall and Skarsgård play more serious roles, both actors embody their scientific and heroic characters. Godzilla vs. Kong also includes Kaylee Hottle, who plays a deaf Iwi, the human inhabitants of Skull Island. Hottle is actually deaf in real life, and her character has a major role in Kong’s story. 

This film is entertaining and awesome from beginning to end. The battle scenes are captivating, and the CGI is astonishing. This is the collaboration of the decade, and an overall good ending to the monsterverse series.
