Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019)

Rated: PG-13 - Runtime: 132 min
tesg's Rating: Two stars (out of four)

There’s a whole lot of WTF going on here (even one of the characters points this out) until the movie takes a breather about 30 minutes in to explain itself. After that, at least we understand what’s going on, but it doesn't make it any more fun to watch. The monster battles are vague at best and the battle footage keeps getting interrupted by cutting to human melodrama happening in the background as if they were undercut on the special effects budget and they had to fake it.

Mothra makes an appearance. Poor Mothra deserved better than this.
