Following “Godzilla” and “Kong: Skull Island” comes the next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ cinematic MonsterVerse: “Godzilla: King of the Monsters” an action-adventure that pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history.

Directed by Michael Dougherty, Godzilla: King of the Monsters follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species – thought to be mere myths – rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.

When it comes to plot, Godzilla: King of the Monsters has a pretty solid one that features an all-star cast. It features the Stranger Things star Milly Bobby Brown as the courageous Madison Russell. In her addition to Brown, Vera Farmiga (Dr Emma Russell) and Kyle Chandler (Mark Russell) play exceptional parts in this film.

While the acting and storyline are pretty solid, my only issue here is the CGI. As much as I enjoyed watching Godzilla duke it out against the other creatures, I found these scenes too dark to actually enjoy the action… Maybe it’s a budget thing, but the CGI moments were also just too dark to make out what was actually going on. Brighter scenes would have this an all-out epic action film; however, the dark scenes really disappointed at times as I really wanted to Godzilla lay waste to anything that opposed him.

Conclusion:
Godzilla: King of the Monster is a decent film. It’s got a great cast and decent plot; however, the CGI really could have been better. In addition to this, the battle scenes could have been lit up better.

Overall, Godzilla: King of the Monsters is a decent watch. Let’s just hope that Godzilla VS. Kong is a much better film in terms of visual effects.
