Godzilla King of the MonstersThe new story 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.

All action with an incoherent story riddled with plot holes. The monster fights are occasionally exciting. But it doesn’t compensate for an incomprehensible, confusing, superficial, clichéd, humourless plot. It’s hard to understand why the high-quality cast would think to put their names to this. If all you want is monsters fighting and screaming, go for it. Otherwise, give it a miss.
