Since the film is now out in non-US countries, I figured it's time it had a dedicated thread. I just got back from seeing it and will try to sum up my overall thoughts without getting into spoilers until next week. This is first and foremost a movie about the monsters. I know that might sound obvious, but you have to remember how long the 2014 film left it before Godzilla got anything to do and how KOTM had him nearly dead for the 2nd act. This movie has a pretty relentless pace, perhaps too much so at times, and gets to the monster scenes right away. The fight scenes are possibly the best kaiju battles I've seen. We've got daytime fights with the monsters fully visible and minimal cutting away from the action. For years, people have been making jokes comparing this to BvS, this movie delivers on its title far better than that movie and has much better fights between its title characters. The human characters are, well, they're human characters in a Godzilla movie. They're not objectionable, but there isn't anyone who stands out too much like in the previous movies. The human antagonists were very bland and underutilized. They could have done with more depth. The movie sets up some interesting worldbuilding but doesn't have much room to explore it. I know there's a Kong anime coming, I hope that can expand on it. I've seen people criticizing the science and plausibility, if you're the sort of person who can't get over that aspect then don't watch this movie because it does not adhere to the laws of physics at all. I didn't like the score nearly as much as McCreary's work on KOTM. Holkenborg's score isn't bad and there are callbacks to old themes, but it just doesn't stand out the way McCreary's did. Overall, I had a great time. If you enjoy epic monster battles, watch it on the biggest screen you can. If you prefer slow and somber (think Shin Godzilla), this may not be for you.
