Godzilla vs. Kong is now out in theaters and streaming on HBO Max and fans seem to be most critical of the film's human storyline. That's not a surprise - every single film in the MonsterVerse franchise (Godzilla, Kong: Skull Island, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Godzilla vs. Kong) has come with the caveat that viewers weren't as interested in the human story - with certain actors and films getting heavier criticisms than others. In the case of Godzilla vs. Kong, it seems that Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown is something of a lightning rod, as viewers seem to be split into serious poles of loving or hating her return as King of the Monsters character Madison Russell.
Scroll below to see what people are saying about Madison Russell's storyline (and Millie Bobby Brown's return) in Godzilla vs. Kong:

This fan just putting it right up front: Godzilla vs. Kong's subplot about Madison Russell and conspiracy theorist Bernie Hayes (Brian Tyree Henry) is its weakest link.prevnext

They took all this out but kept Millie Bobby Brown and her pointless gang in? pic.twitter.com/Gu7c7jtJji— 𝗠𝗘𝗥𝗖Ʊ𝗥𝗬 | #SnyderCut (@theSNYDERVERSE) April 1, 2021
There's already controversy brewing over which actors and storylines were trimmed from Godzilla vs. Kong - and which ones made the cut.prevnext
Some viewers didn't mind the Madison Russell storyline at all - they loved the bit of levity in a big serious monster fight movie!prevnext
The Human G.O.A.T.
In the end, Jia (actress Kaylee Hottie) is the real human MVP - possibly of the entire Monsterverse franchise. Didn't say word - was a total badass.
