    Godzilla: King of the Monsters is an incredibly fun continuation of the franchise, and one that respects and honours its roots.

    GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS never knows [what type of movie they are telling] and tries throwing all sorts of dead-end plot threads and ineffective emotional beats at the audience.
