On this episode of The Global Film Podcast, Editor-In-Chief and Host Diego Andaluz reviews Godzilla vs. Kong. Joined by numerous global contributors, they discuss their in-depth thoughts on the technical and thematic strengths and shortcomings of the series, among other notable highlights.
In a time when monsters walk the Earth, humanity’s fight for its future sets Godzilla and Kong on a collision course that will see the two most powerful forces of nature on the planet collide in a spectacular battle for the ages.
Overall, despite Godzilla vs. Kong’s trope-filled screenplay and a burdensome overreliance on thinly developed characters, its eventual shedding of a grounded focus to embrace its blunt and bombastic nature turns the film into a largely enjoyable and incredibly entertaining blockbuster filled to the brim with enough dumb fun, scope, and welcome visual ingenuity.– Diego Andaluz
