Critic Reviews for Godzilla: King of the Monsters

All Critics (348) | Top Critics (65)

The sound effects in this movie are extraordinary. That roar that Godzilla does? I gotta tell you that I kind of love that. I might make it the dial tone on my phone.

The cast is stacked with otherwise brilliant actors stuck in a borderline incomprehensible plot and forced to play second fiddle to monsters whose powers of wonder wear off fast.

Sometimes you have to be honest about the movie you really are - smashy smash. If you can reconcile that, then it's not so awful.

June 21, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's typical of the film to set up a major sequence in which flying monsters Mothra and Rodan dog-fight, only to cut that short and follow Mark as he struggles to open some airplane doors.

I thoroughly enjoyed director Michael Dougherty's Godzilla: King of the Monsters. It made me smile.

June 6, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

It's just a big-budget waste of resources that weakly attempts some eco-warrior gibberish and leans heavily on disaster movie clichés.
