(2021) (Rebecca Hall, Alexander Skarsgard) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Sci-Fi/Action: Two gargantuan monsters battle it out as humans try to develop a weapon to kill one of them.
Following the events of 2017's "Kong: Skull Island'' and 2019's "Godzilla: King of the Monsters," King Kong and Godzilla are the last two known Titans on Earth. The great ape is being held in an immense containment facility on Skull Island -- where his only friend is deaf orphan girl Jia (KAYLEE HOTTLE) -- and that's for his protection from Godzilla whose whereabouts are unknown. That is, until he attacks a Florida facility owned by Apex Cybernetics.
Having previously seen Godzilla in action, teenager Madison Russell (MILLIE BOBBY BROWN) is certain the big lizard wouldn't attack such a place without reason, although her father, Dr. Mark Russell (KYLE CHANDLER), a specialist at the top-secret research organization Monarch, isn't so sure. A follower of Apex Cybernetics engineer Bernie Hayes' (BRIAN TYREE HENRY) conspiracy theory podcast, Madison convinces her friend Josh Valentine (JULIAN DENNISON) to help her find Bernie and prove her belief correct.
A figure who knows what's going on is Apex Cybernetics CEO Walter Simmons (DEMIÁN BICHIR). He wants to enlist Monarch geologist Dr. Nathan Lind (ALEXANDER SKARSGÅRD) to help him find a power source in what's known as Hollow Earth -- the center of the planet and the place from where it's believed Kong and Godzilla originated -- to be used in a weapon -- created and controlled by Chief Technology Officer Ren Serizawa (SHUN OGURI) -- he believes can defeat Godzilla. But he needs Nathan to convince "Kong whisperer" Dr. Ilene Andrews (REBECCA HALL) to agree to transport Kong from Skull Island to Antarctica to enter a portal to Hollow Earth and then lead them to that power source.
With Walter's adult daughter, Maya (EIZA GONZÁLEZ), tagging along to make sure everything goes as planned, Nathan and Ilene begin to move Kong and prepare for a trip into Hollow Earth. But with Godzilla sensing Kong's presence once again, all bets are off as the two titans go toe-to-toe in a series of epic-scale battles.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- If they're into monster movies (and this one's three predecessors), they probably will.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
