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.

If they're into monster movies (and this one's three predecessors), they probably will.
For intense sequences of creature violence/destruction and brief language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
