Warner Bros.’ highly-anticipated thriller Godzilla vs. Kong is more action packed than anyone could have imagined. The showdown of the century features all the elements of a blockbuster film: the all-star cast (including a Morehouse College alumnus), the special effects, the storyline, and of course, the monsters!
In the film, gigantic legends Godzilla and King Kong collide in their battle to be the world’s top alpha male. Kept away from each other for ages, there is an energy bringing them back together. The resulting fight will leave the fate of the world hanging in the balance. Stuck in the middle are nefarious scientists. the world’s cities, and an innocent orphaned girl who has created a special bond with one of the giant monsters.
The cast of the film is full of familiar faces, and they all brought their A-game. Atlanta star and Morehouse College alumnus Brian Tyree Henry plays the determined Bernie Hayes. For 5 years, Hayes has been spying on the labs holding Godzilla in a makeshift environment, but he believes something big is going to go down, soon. Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown (playing Madison Russell) is attracted to Haye’s conspiracy podcast, and brings friend Dennison Julian (playing Josh Valentine) along to find him. The chaos that ensues takes them across the world as all three run into several close calls. Seasoned actors Alexander Skarsgård, Rebecca Hall, and Lance Reddick also get in on the action as leads in the film.
Being that the film is the fourth installment in the so-called Legendary Entertainment “MonsterVerse” franchise, we do think true fans will love this film.
