The latest Godzilla movie, sub-captioned as King of the Monsters, features one of the best kaiju fights depicted — well, that is if one is to compare the fight scenes in previous monster movies before Computer Generated Imagery (CGI) came along. The darkness, the sparks of flying embers amidst the fog and in some instances the storm, helped make the kaiju fights looked real enough. Yet overall, the movie still lacked the gripping effect of the Godzilla monster that first arrived in New York via the 1998 Godzilla monster movie starring Matthew Broderick and Jean Reno.
Godzilla 2019 King of the Monsters Movie Plot
Godzilla:King of the Monsters runs on a flimsy plot. It tells of how a super-funded, high-tech company called Monarch, is trying to stop the government from launching offensives aimed at wiping out all sleeping monsters before they wreak havoc once again. It is not clear though, how the U.S. government planned to accomplish such a feat, since Godzilla has lots of nuclear energy stored inside its monster body.
At least, Monarch has an instrument that can communicate with the monsterrific creatures that they refer to as Titans. What is being communicated through, is likewise obscure since Emma (Vera Farmiga), the Monarch scientist who developed the AI called Orca seems to be the only one convinced that her program works. The main gist for wanting to keep Godzilla alive is that Emma and her Monarch cohorts believe that Godzilla, being the King of the Monsters, will reign and keep every awakening Titan in check. In the process, and based on some hazy explanations, they will be able to keep the balance of nature intact.
It is just too bad that another monster king, Ghidora, anti-hero to Godzilla, is also in Boston and wants to claim the ruler role over all Titans. That being the case, the movie will run frequent and repetitive battles between the two, with some fight scenes between Mothra and Rodan. At some point, Godzilla gets help from the humans who resuscitates the monster’s body with large doses of nuclear energy.
Well, never mind if many find the plot corny and if the seemingly endless fight scenes became boring at some point . The younger generation definitely enjoyed the monster battles, as the way they were presented was very similar to how kaiju battles transpire in their Godzilla video game play.
