Same issues that they had with KoTM, people who never had an active interest in the idea of big monsters fighting each other confused on what they want out of this movie. This movie is exactly what its fans want: a big lizard and a big monkey beating the shit out of each other. If people want boring character drama in a giant monster movie they have the 2014 Godzilla which got so much (justified) shit for barely showing its titular character.

Like all movies similar to this one; you don't want to have one 100% without a doubt beat the other because then you'd alienate half your audience (and also half your potential merchandise sales). But I imagine the woke journalists are upset because in the ending:

Spoiler
Kang Wuz retreats down to the Hollow Earth (center of the Earth) just so that he can live on GODzilla's planet. The one round where he actually gets a point against GODzilla, King Jobber ruins it and gets so thoroughly ass ravaged by GODzilla that they need to revive him with electricity.

I thought it was okay

no major complaints or anything, it was exactly what I was expecting

but I'm further perplexed as to how KOTM is the one movie in the franchise that seemed to get shit on by critics, when it's the only one that exceeded my expectations

maybe I should rewatch all of them

emigrate or degenerate. the choice is yours
The writing in this movie is just plain awful, even for a dumb monster movie. I genuinely thought we were past the 90s "leet hacker" movie trope by now.

pOuR wHisKeY iN tHe cOmPuTer tO sToP tHe rObO mOnSTeR was a top tier eye roll moment even for this kind of film.

I mean it's pretty good. I really like how it actively ignores stuff that would be hard to explain instead of getting bogged down in it since it frankly doesn't matter. It often feels like the film just ignores logic to allow the plot to move forward, and in most movies that would be an egregious sin, but in something like Godzilla vs. Kong it translates directly to more giant monster fights, and I don't think anyone is bothered by that. It's more or less what everyone complained that Batman v Superman didn't do, since it was so busy worrying about how this all makes sense that we ended up lost in lame bullshit nobody cares about.

Althooough, speaking of lame bullshit nobody cares about... Bernie and Co literally did not need to be in the movie. They could've left the trio of truthseekers on the cutting room floor and it would've had absolutely no effect on the movie except to make it better lol.

They did Kong so dirty jobbing to Gojira.

Instead of Mecha Godzilla, it should have been Apex building Kong a Mechsuit to beat down Goji.

"flaming nipple chops"-Your host, the man they call Ghost.

To say, 'nothing is true', is to realize that the foundations of society are fragile, and that we must be the shepherds of our own civilization. To say, 'everything is permitted', is to understand that we are the architects of our actions, and that we must live with their consequences, whether glorious or tragic.

Well, the character storyline was ridiculous enough to make most bottom barrel Showa look intelligent, but it was paced quickly enough to ensure that it never got annoying. Plus, it never actively detracted from the action like it often did in KoTM.

The soundtrack was probably the most bizarrely disappointing thing about the movie after KoTM's music. Junkie XL's music for Snyder's Justice League [a four hour score which he made in just a few months] was very solid so I'm not really sure what happened here.

Idk, 2014 gets a bad rep but I still feel that it has the most to offer from the Western Godzilla movies on a moment to moment basis. That being said, GvK was still good fun- plus people can shut up about the ambiguous outcome of KKvG now that
Spoiler
my man beat Kong in both fights lmao

KSI > 2014 > GvK > KoTM

Imo imo imo

I enjoyed KoTM more than any of the other movies.
