It seems that Godzilla: King of the Monsters does not disappoint as the first reactions to the film have been overwhelmingly positive.
The early reactions to the film just came in as critics have been giving their brief thoughts on the film. Most seem to agree that the film is a ton of fun with great effects, does what the previous film did not and delivers one heck of a climactic battle. You can see some of these early reactions below:
Will have a full review later this month, but if you’re looking for a simple recommendation, this is a must-see summer movie. It gets right what the other modern-day Godzilla movies got wrong (in my opinion, of course). Finally! #GodzillaKingOfTheMonsters

Also the VFX in #GodzillaKingOfTheMonsters are insane. I'm so impressed with what @Mike_Dougherty did with the material and monster battles and can't wait to see it again. If you weren't looking forward to the new @GodzillaMovie it's time to buy tickets. pic.twitter.com/TGiCnCjgxb

#GodzillaKingOfTheMonsters ups the monster action considerably. The battle scenes are gorgeous & fierce & feel ripped from the pages of a gnarly graphic novel. You want a giant-monster movie throwdown, this is it and then some. Can’t wait for that Godzilla vs Kong movie now pic.twitter.com/3RnAOSc00V

Godzilla: King of the Monsters rules so goddamn hard. Easily the most fun I’ve had in theaters all year and the best Monsterverse entry yet. The scale is mind-boggling & every action scene could be your new desktop wallpaper. See it on the biggest screen possible. #GodzillaMovie pic.twitter.com/YoZrAAjey1

From the look of things, we’re going to have one heck of a Godzilla movie to see at the end of the month!
What do you all make of these reactions? Are you looking forward to seeing Godzilla: King of the Monsters? What did you think of the first Godzilla film? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
Directed by Michael Dougherty from a script by Dougherty, Max Borenstein and Zach Shields, Godzilla: King of the Monsters stars Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown, Bradley Whitford, Sally Hawkins, Charles Dance, Thomas Middleditch, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Ken Watanabe, Zhang Ziyi, Anthony Ramos, Jonathan Howard, Aisha Hinds, Elizabeth Ludlow and Randy Havens. Here’s the synopsis:
Following the global success of “Godzilla” and “Kong: Skull Island” comes the next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ cinematic MonsterVerse, an epic action adventure that pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history. The 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.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters roars into theaters on May 31, 2019.
