(2019) (Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Action: A number of scientists and others must contend with an eco-terrorist's plan to release gargantuan monsters around the globe in order to rebalance the natural order of the world.
- Following the death of their son caused by the widespread damage that resulted from Godzilla battling other monsters a few years back in San Francisco, scientists Mark (KYLE CHANDLER) and Emma Russell (VERA FARMIGA) have split up, with their teenage daughter, Madison (MILLIE BOBBY BROWN), now living with their mother at a Monarch facility, one of many that continues to research monsters. Emma has continued to work on a device known as Orca that can communicate in a way with monsters via operating on a frequency they understand, and that's put to use when Mothra emerges from her cocoon as a giant worm.
But then eco-terrorist Alan Jonah (CHARLES DANCE) shows up with armed men who kill nearly everyone at the facility, steal the Orca, and kidnap both Emma and Madison. Believing humans are destroying the world, Jonah wants to unleash all of the world's dormant monsters and let them rebalance the natural order of the world -- all of which means millions if not billions of people might die.
That doesn't sit well with Monarch officials such as Dr. Ishiro Serizawa (KEN WATANABE), Vivienne Graham (SALLY HAWKINS), Rick Stanton (BRADLEY WHITFORD) and Sam Coleman (THOMAS MIDDLEDITCH) who think that Mark might be able to help stop Jonah, what with more than a working knowledge of the Orca device, having devised and developed that with Emma in the past. Mark is willing to help, but only if military types such as Col. Diane Foster (AISHA HINDS), Chief Warrant Officer Barnes (O'SHEA JACKSON JR.) and others of service kill all of the monsters, including Godzilla, something Dr. Serizawa is wholeheartedly against.
But with the likes of Mothra, Rodan and especially the three-headed Ghidorah now on the loose, they come to realize that all of humankind is now in danger and their only hope might be Godzilla, the king of all monsters.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- If they're into Godzilla or other monster movies, they probably will.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
- For sequences of monster action violence and destruction, and for some language.
