Shallow Monsterverse fun
Godzilla vs. Kong is a fairly empty movie. There’s very little depth and the story is mostly fueled by movie logic. Still, it’s a fun ride for what it is. In fact, I’m pretty sure that’s the key to the financial success of the movie. In a time of pandemic shutdowns across the world, Godzilla vs. Kong is a reminder of a different time. Watching a big empty blockbuster with giant monsters fighting each other is just what people need right now. It’s the closest most of us can get to the experience of a packed theatre before the pandemic.
