Godzilla vs. Kong: An Epic Action Thriller

On Sunday, March 21, 2021, filmmaker Asam Wingard released his sci-fi/action film “Godzilla vs. Kong”. This exhilarating film reintroduces famous characters from past movies including, the fire-breathing giant Godzilla, and Kong, the giant ape. The movie follows Kong and his search for a new home. With him is an orphaned girl named Jia who has forged a strong emotional bond with the ape. However, as Godzilla wreaks havoc across the world, these two titans are forced to confront each other in a battle unlike ever before on planet earth. 

Godzilla is a fictional, dinosaur-like creature with atomic breath (the source of his energy. The character is actually a mutated unique species of dinosaurs called the Godzillasaurus. Godzilla has appeared in 31 movies since 1945 (three American and the rest are Japanese). The name is a translation of the Japanese word “gojira”. 

King Kong resembles an enormous ape that has appeared in various releases since 1933. The character grew in popularity after first appearing in the novelization of 1933 film “King Kong”. The film, made by Edgar Wallace and Merian C. Cooper, premiered two months following the book. 

I highly recommend “Godzilla vs. Kong” because of its thrilling action and extraordinary graphics. Many even watch the film simply out of curiosity to see who is stronger out of the two. I would rate this movie a 7/10! Quarantined students itching an exhilarating watch should definitely find a convenient streaming platform and watch it!
