this movie was awesome. the plot and the performances by the live actors was unimpressive and meaningless but who cares. kong was being transported in chains by the u.s. 7nth fleet. then godzilla attacks. it was not a fair fight because kong is not an amphibian and godzilla is. the tagline for this movie should be "we're gonna need another 7nth fleet"

GODZILLA VS. KONG (2021) - A $165M budget and it's...about on a par with the low budget 1962 Japanese film matching the two title monsters. All the financial and production resources in the world  can't hide the weaknesses in the script.

The fourth in the Monsterverse series  this battle of the titans spends too much time with the convoluted plot which eventually includes a Journey To The Center Of The Earth style subplot and a modern version of one of Godzilla's old robot rivals( there's even a credit for a “Monsterverse Mythology Consultant”!) . And, who knew that Kong was a fan of the Thor?!

There are a couple of nice bits and some of the action is decent. Junkie XL (Adam Holkenborg)'s music isn't bad and the idea of using pops songs kind of works -- at least the first time in the movie. The SFX are fine. The cast is ok but the acting honors go to Kaylee Hottle as the deaf girl who befriends Kong. Of course, she has the advantage of not having to spout any of the lame dialogue. And, what is up with the conspiracy angle which even uses Q-Anon buzzwords like “Storm Track” and “Bleach”?  Odd.

The ending leaves open the possibility of more sequels and, nowadays, it's every studio's dream to have a never-ending “Universe” of their own. But, their game will have to be upped for this one to continue much longer.
