I must add that Adam Wingard's cinematography shines in this romp. The kaiju action is what fans have begged for and will fulfill their need for action. Kong and Godzilla get time to shine even after a twist at the end. I will be watching #GodzillaVsKong many more times.— Megan Peters (@meganpeterscb) March 21, 2021
The Beasts Above All
As expected - and probably as it should be - the titan fights are the best parts of #GodzillaVsKong . Adam Wingard definitely has the eye to make the most of those moments! Still don't think they've nailed how to incorporate human characters, but the top-notch ensemble helps. pic.twitter.com/ttpmNJOElo— Perri Nemiroff (@PNemiroff) March 21, 2021
A Total Blast
#GodzillavsKong is a visual spectacle featuring jaw-dropping fight scenes btwn the two iconic titans. Wingard’s directing style is on full display in a colorful & breathtaking fashion that also harkens back to the 80s style kaiju. Needless to say, this film is a blast! pic.twitter.com/j31lc55iVO— Shannon 🎃🍭@ SXSW (@shannon_mcgrew) March 21, 2021
Put 'Em Up
#GodzillavsKong is another solid MonsterVerse installment. While more time could have been used to explore this franchise’s deeper mythology, if you’re chiefly looking forward to seeing Godzilla and King Kong collide in a fight for the ages, you won’t be disappointed! pic.twitter.com/ajR7UW0Cre— Adam Holmes (@MrAdamHolmes) March 21, 2021
Let Them Fight
#GodzillaVsKong is one hell of a ride! True, it feels like some stuff is missing &it flys by on a greased rail. But that's part of why I love it so much, in the shadow of the plot heavy KOTM. The fights are epic, and Adam Wingard brings his style & color to the MonsterVerse. pic.twitter.com/NjnVusQCrr— Mike Reyes (@MrControversy83) March 21, 2021
Get Ready to Rumble
I've seen #GodzillaVsKong and it is grade-A awesome! The monster brawls are badass & beautiful -- huge fights, all well designed & super gnarly. Solid story, strong cast, really good score. A true Midnight Monster Movie & my favorite of the four modern Godzilla/Kong movies. pic.twitter.com/zkEhbvS9pf— Erik Davis (@ErikDavis) March 21, 2021
A Title Match Unlike Any Other
#GodzillaVsKong is fun, vibrant, action-packed, and energizing.
GvK lives up to the heavyweight match it advertised with amazing visual effects and action sequences. This movie is selling a spectacle, and that’s exactly what audiences will get.— Sheraz Farooqi (@SherazFarooqi_) March 21, 2021
